    Very good meal. I had the beef and chicken combination meal. The beef was particularly good. The chicken was a little overcooked but still good.

    Delicious food and extremely attentive and friendly waitstaff. Even received special attention from the owner who stopped by with a complementary sampling of other dishes to ensure that we had a rich experience of this wonderful cuisine. Highly recommend it unless you are looking for a very quiet dinner.

    I went for valentines day and the prix fix menu was a great deal and the food was delicious. The vegetarian sampler has so many different things to try and I loved them all. The service was great and the waitstaff was incredibly friendly. Despite the restaurant being full it was not too loud and the ambiance was very nice.

    Have been to a few Ethiopian restaurants around the area and this is by far the best in the area. The food was all delicious, we only ordered the vegan dishes and there were plenty to chose from. Everything was fresh and so tasty. The service was great, we never wanted for anything and water and injera were always brought to the table when we needed more and were never waiting for anything. Can’t wait to go back and try more of the menu!

    Food was amazing my first time eating Ethiopian food. It was a different experience with sharing food with the whole table eating with your hands. 10/10 would recommend at least trying this everything was delicious and the staff was on their A game.

    We reserved for 7:00pm, but the restaurant was so popular we couldn’t be sat until 7:45 but the wait was definitely worth it as every dish was fantastic. Definitely recommend ordering a bottle of Tej to end the meal.

    Our first time trying Das and we will definitely be returning. The staff is amazing, the space is cozy without feeling crowded, it’s family friendly (we had our 3 yr old with us) and the owner was even making his rounds ensuring everyone was having a great dining experience. Thank you for a great birthday dinner;-)

    The staff, the food, and the atmosphere all exceeded expectations. We were celebrating my husband’s 70th birthday and even without the staff knowing the service was outstanding. Our waitress made excellent recommendations, all of them were delicious. Toward the end of the meal to our surprise the owner came by and added a fish and a chicken dish to our tray. We could not have asked for or mapped out a better dinner celebration. Hats off to all of the frontend and backend staff members for providing top notch customer service. Being a military vet with 50 years of customer service under my belt I believe how you present yourself and represent the organization matters, you all get 2 thumbs up from everyone in our party for your promptness despite having a full house. Thanks for a job well done and making our celebration one to remember! We have your location bookmarked, plan to return, and have already recommended you to others.
