Having had Ethiopian in East Africa, this is very authentic and delicious! Very dietary-restriction friendly. Not cheap but affordable for DC, and a great atmosphere for a nicer meal.

Went here while walking around Georgetown one evening. It was my very first experience with Ethiopian cuisine so that I cannot compare this place with other restaurants, but I was satisfied. Staff were lovely, nice atmosphere (although I sat outside) and good food – shame...More
