Description: This is one of DC's many Eritrean restaurants, but it tends to be overlooked by the better publicized and established Ethiopian community in the city. It's a small place, but offers a fantastic dishes, coffee, and service. There is no review on TripAdvisor for this restaurant (there is one on Yelp!).

Enjoyed this place with friends on a Monday evening. The place was packed but they found a spot for us after about 10 minutes. Comfort food with a community flavor, customized to our spice level request. I enjoyed the vegetable combo platter with lentils and chickpeas. Everything was very good. The stews were also good, both meat and vegetable. So worth a wait if you have to. I would love to go back for the breakfast menu!

Family and I went while on vacation in DC-this was our second time eating Ethiopian food, the first being 4 days prior at another place a few blocks away. Food was delicious-although we had disagreement over which Ethiopian place had better tibs, we agreed that the hot chickpeas that we got here that is poured over the other food was fantastic. While there were not a lot of servers and I don’t think they are assigned to specific tables, we were checked on regularly and they were quick to bring us our second order of tibs (one order is not enough for 4). The place was crowded but the wait was not long-the only drawback to our visit was that we were seated closest to the bathroom so there was constant movement right next to us. Try Ethiopian beer-it’s pretty good and we were pleasantly surprised by that.

We try to stop here every time we are in DC! It is great food, great prices, small cozy atmosphere and the staff are really nice. We are always recommending it to everyone we know in the area as well! It is my favorite Ethiopian restaurant I have found up in that area! The only issue which is an issue everywhere in D.C. is the parking. But it is definitely worth stopping by!
