Went here for Date Night, and we’ve only had Ethiopian cuisine a couple times before. The injera wasn’t sour like we’ve tasted at other places, and the sambusas were not oily. I must say that the food was delicious, and I’m looking forward to us returning very soon!

food was delightful. We sampled just about everything. My personal favorite was the amazing cabbage and carrot in ginger, garlic sauce. My son especially loved the chicken and my husband loved the bean based dishes. Of course, it is always great fun to eat with you hands, using the delicious bread.

The injera was beautiful. I enjoyed the fish and collard greens. Great taste. The staff were attentive. Got my bottomless water glass filled without sometimes realizing it. The host was kind and unobtrusive but clearly present. A great place…

We celebrated two wedding anniversaries here and it was perfect. The staff was so welcoming and the food was amazing. The framed Ethiopian photographs with the blank/ white/ navy decor was so beautiful. Everyone, staff and costumers alike, we’re clearly happy to be there. This restaurants name, Das Ethiopian, fits it perfectly. A true gathering place!
