Great find for Ethiopian food in Hyattsville, fresh, flavorful and tasty. The staff is very willing to assist the uninitiated or make suggestions to enhance your experienced flavor palate. Nothing fancy here, just good Ethiopian food in a casual, family friendly environment. It takes a little time to prepare your meal but it is worth the wait. Try it, you'll like it!

I have had lunch a few times here. There is a range of mild to spicy flavors. The vegetarian plate is a good sampler. Selections with meat are pretty good. Once you get the hang of eating with your hands with the spongy bread, it's enjoyable. Also, the coffee is fresh, smooth and potent.

Shagga is fair Ethiopian fare. I have been three times and I will go back. I think I am spoiled by going to Nile in Silver Spring, which is the best Ethiopian in the DC area now. I think Shagga has gotten better every time I have been so we will see.

Some of the best Ethiopian food ever. Every dish is distinctively flavored and served at the right temperature. You can pay lots more for Ethiopian cuisine but the food wont be as good. Shaggas will tailor the kitfo to your taste preferences, including slightly warming it for the faint of tummy. Try a combination and share and sample a variety of meat or vegetarian dishes. Good selection of fruit drinks: the mango smoothie is like a tropical vacation. Reasonable prices on beer and wine, including ethiopian wine. Basic furnishings with ethiopian souvenirs. Mixed clientele from taxi drivers, to college students, to families of all ages. Very sweet, attentive, service, as much or as little attention as you like.
