We love the laid back and authentic atmosphere of this restaurant. The food is top notch and prices are comparable to other DC area restaurants. It is located in a very discreet plaza but don't let the outside fool you.

Definitely worth a try!

We called into this restaurant on a Saturday evening and found it buzzing. While the restaurant is nothing special to look at, being full of people gave it a great atmosphere. There is also a bar available.

The staff were very attentive and took care to try and explain the menu (language skills permitting). We started with some pastries stuffed with lentilsand found them to be far superior to those tried at another Ethiopian restaurant in DC where the prices were higher, the portions were smaller and the staff were grumpy.

We were later amused by how the two entre meat dishes we'd ordered were brought in serving dishes but then "tipped-out" onto the pancake type bread that is typical of Ethiopian cuisine. We were also advised to use our fingers to eat using the bread to scoop up the meat. The staff did bring us forks but it turned out to be fun to use fingers - just like a local! Both meat dishes were really tasty and one was a little spicy which was excellent. Because of the large portions we took the leftovers home. Although we didn't have the chance to linger in the restaurant, it appeared that live entertainment would be on offer later.

All in all we had good food and a great time at this restaurant.
