Good food, ambiance and friendly service. Menu is just right. There are vegetation and vegan options as well. Weekends and some nights a live band is entertaining to watch and prices are reasonable too. I'll go again.

This restaurant is indeed the best spot for Ethiopian cuisine in the Washington, DC area. The food was delicious and fresh. I highly recommend the enjera special and the chicken spris. The enjera special melts in your mouth.
