Do DC with Kids




We ordered from this place recently and everything was fantastic! I ordered a veggie sampler and ate the entire thing because it was just too good. We will definitely order from here again.

This place is SO AWESOME!!! It is new and clean and beautiful inside and the food is delicious! I wish I could pack it in my suitcase and take it back to California with me!

Try the vegetarian options. They have a whole lot of them. They also have a delicious salad with steamed vegetables and avocado. Delish!

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The customer service was awesome. The man who took our order had lots on input about the menu items. We told him we like spicy and he went from there. He even offered to exchange some suggested items if we didn't like it. Our food was very flavorful and fresh. If I lived in DC I would be here weekly. The other staff also checked on us to make sure we were enjoying our dining experience. I love excellent food and service so they deserve 5 stars for providing both.

The best Ethiopian food in DC. Fantastic flavor parade, great vegetarian tastes all served with a great warm smile. The best dinner experience with kids. They polished off all the vegetables from the plate.
