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!

Overall very good experience with Ethiopian cheese appetizer and the service being the best. The entre chicken and beef combo was good. Considering the location and size of the portions it’s a great value.

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.

Every time I’m in Georgetown I find a reason to eat at Das. The food is amazing and the service is always on point. If you’ve never had Ethiopian cuisine, Das is a great place to try it; order one of the samplers, or just ask for recommendations and try a variety of different dishes. You really can’t go wrong. I’m already looking forward to returning to Das for another amazing meal.
