The food was disappointing. Nothing special, could have been any kind of meat (not tender) and it was pricy for what it was.

The food at Das never disappoints. The door wat and vegetable platter are outstanding, and the service is warm and friendly. Don't forget to have a glass of Ethiopian honey wine, t'ej, with your meal!

This is an other-worldly experience and for our first visit we could not have asked for more. Everything was delicious, perfectly prepared, lovingly delivered and served up by our attentive and caring server. The staff was so obviously invested in our having a top notch experience, generous portions and even more so with additional bread and second helpings of the most amazing red lentils ever. Highly recommend and will definitely return on our next visit to Georgetown

Given this is an ethnic restaurant, it would be great to have more guidance and storytelling around what you are ordering. Including the level of spicy which, in some dish, could be a little too much.
overall it is very good and very interesting, would be better if it was a little more "experience" than just ordering off the menu

Fabulously delicious food! Excellent presentation. Elizabeth, the owner ensured every customers meal experience was going well. Restaurant offers comfortable seating. Candles on table and lower lights in the evening an added plus. Staff was top notch and attentive to customer needs. We will be back to try more of the menu.

I love this restaurant! I visit Das every time I'm in the DC area. The food is wonderful, with beautiful spices and with a wide variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian choices, all served family style on a big piece of Ethiopian flatbread. If you've never eaten Ethiopian food, you use a small piece of the bread to pick up each bite of food - it's a bit messy but a lot of fun. And if you don't feel comfortable eating with your hands, the servers are happy to bring you some utensils. The family that owns this restaurant is lovely, and the servers are all friendly and helpful in explaining the different items on the menu. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone - for those who don't like spicy food, there are plenty of delicious dishes with mild flavors. Try it!

To be fair the last time we visited was at the end of summer. We are outside and there were lots of bugs though the restaurant provided bug spray. There did not appear to be enough servers so we did experience the level of service we’ve come to expect. However we think that’s likely due to the Covid economy and staffing shortages.
