    Everything was perfect. The food, vibe, lighting, atmosphere and energy. Ordered three dishes for two of us to share and it came on one big dreamy platter of goodness. Can’t wait to go back.

    If you're looking for quality Ethiopian food, this place is a must. I got the red lentils (absolutely superbly seasoned) with loads of injera and tej (Ethiopian honey wine). Highly recommend!

    I think our issue with our dinner was the placement of our table. We were by the door that led to the outside seating area, and there was a lot of traffic using that door. Because of that, and the resultant draft, our food got too cold too quickly. Hot food needs to be hot, and it was too bad that it was my wife’s introduction to Ethiopian cuisine. It did not live up to how much I had talked it up prior to our trip to DC.

    This is my second time dining at DAS. If you’ve never had Ethiopian food before, this experience is elevated without the high price tag. With Ethiopian food, they always come around with injera bread as your utensil, and I never felt that I ran out. I always order a few samplers to share among my peers. They are more strict about reservations on busy nights, so definitely make one. I had a glass of Ethiopian wine with my meal, which was a bit sweet for me, but the flavor was great. This is one of my favorite places to take people in the DMV.

    The food/drink and ambiance were very good. I didn't put 5 stars because outdoor dining was not set up even though the weather was nice, and because the vegetarian sampler has gotten significantly smaller since my last visit a few years ago.

    First female server was more on the rude side, didn’t ask for drink order and had to come back cause she forgot what we ordered. Fortunately a different waiter took over and was nicer. Quite slow service. Would’ve thought a Georgetown quality restaurant would’ve offered wet towels or wipes before eating, especially a place you eat with your hands. Especially with only one restroom for two floors of tables.

    The food was great but the $7.50 surcharge per person if you want to share food was quite ridiculous. We got a bunch of appetizers to share but only got 1 entree and the server told us that we would have to pay an extra $7.50 per person for sharing the entree. For a place that has family style food sharing that was quite off putting and makes me not want to go back.

    I have eaten at Das once or twice each year over the last 5 years it is always provides a good dining experience with quality Ethiopian food and good service at a reasonable price point. Washington, D.C. has many Ethiopian restaurants and this is my favorite. I recommend ordering the vegetarian platter and the meat platter, as you get one large plate with multiple small portions of various dishes.

    My mom and I have gone to Das a few times and we are never disappointed. The pastry dough of the sambusas is crispy and light, and the lentils inside are delicious. My mom ordered the chicken and beef combination platter and she loved it. I ordered the vegetarian sampler platter. Das makes amazing food and you won’t be disappointed! They were even sweet enough to give us a free dessert. Very thoughtful!

    While visiting DMV, we celebrated my father’s 70th at the lovely Das Ethiopian restaurant in Georgetown. The wonderful restaurant team were attentive and warm. The ladies waiting on our table made him very happy. He is still smiling. It’s the small details in life. Das pays attention to those small details. We ate the tasty vegan options as well as the delicious asa dulet. The injera was perfectly light on our tummies, soft, and warm. We had a cheesecake desert served with my father’s birthday candle, which was the right amount of sweetness. I will recommend Das to everyone. Take your loved ones, you’ll leave happier. Bravo Das!
