    The best meal I have had in Washington so far. Hearty food is served family-style and has a wide range of tastes and textures. Pinching the food with the traditional Ethiopian bread, injera, adds an extra layer of flavor.

    The food was the best part of the experience. Those in the kitchen put out a top-notch meal. I suspect the restaurant may be suffering from a bit of training issues with the staff, but the service was passable. A few mistakes, but the attitude was friendly and helpful. The large complaint was the noise level, and the inaction to do anything about it. A very large party at another table should have come with a decibel warning, and the staff (see above) did nothing about it. The children were shouting to each other, and the parents response was to shout over their children in order to be heard. Perhaps the experiences outside or downstairs would have been better.

    Very disappointing food. Served quickly and not hot. Some meat tough and low ratio of meat to sauce. Felt like food not specially prepared. Eat with rolled pancakes to eat by hand but these were cold. How does it get such high reviews!

    We live Das and have been coming here for years. We came mid-afternoon on a Sunday. It was lively but only 2 waitresses working so slower than usual. We like our food spicy and it wasn’t as spicy as usual. Still a wonderful place.

    Such a pleasure! The food was terrific, the service was very attentive, and what a pretty room. The owner also stopped by to meet us, which was a nice touch. We had a mix of meat and vegetarian dishes including my favorite, gomen (collard greens), all excellently seasoned, rich but not too rich.
