    Great staff. Food seemed to taste like it was homemade. Too mild, I think, but that's probably because I did not ask for any spiciness.

    Celebrated my son’s graduation there. A delicious authentic Ethiopian dining experience! Ordered 4 mains and 2 starters and it was plenty of food. The honey wine was sweet and cold and I liked the Ethiopian beer too! Great ambiance too!

    Not your usual Ethiopian restaurant. Unlike the places in Adams-Morgan I went to years ago this food is "less hardy," not overpowered meaning you can actually taste the various spices in the food. It's more like an Ethiopian version of haut cuisine. I recommend that you go with a few friends, order the vegetarian sampler and then add a meat and a fish dish. Eat it family style on top of a large piece of injera and be sure to eat with your fingers. (The restaurant supplies as many white napkins as you need.) The Ethiopian wine is also very interesting and very sweet. Service is excellent. The setting is a small tastefully decorated room with white tablecloths giving it a nice upscale appearance. This place says they are entered in the Michelin Guide and they deserve to be. Oh, and don't forget to eat the injera under all the food. It soaks up all those sauces. . .

    Amazing gem of a place. Food to service was stellar. Ask for the real Injeera to truly enjoy the cuisine, and not the American version. The vege sampler dish, chicken doro vat and lean beef tips were perfectly cooked, and packed with flavor!

    Great food and attentive service. Plenty of options for vegetarians across all courses. The noise level gets very high though with a full house. It is not surprising given the cozy ambience of the place but still irks. I will look for a mid-week reservation the next time around and avoid Fridays / weekends.

    The experience with the host at the door gave us pause. Did not feel welcoming. However, our experience only improved from there. Our server was lovely and the proprietor came around to all the tables to ensure that we were happy. We had sambusas for appetizers, which were fresh and delicious. I had the chicken doro wat and shared the collard greens with my husband. All was very flavorful, complex spice presentation. Some heat, but to my tastebuds (I love spice), not remotely too spicy. Definitely recommend.
