I come here on a regular basis, both on dates and with friends. Meat eaters can get meat, but if you're vegetarian or vegan, they have multiple options for you, and they're all vegan. On certain days they have chickpea cakes, but it's rare. Usually I get the vegetarian combination platter, which gives you a sampling of 5 dishes. I've been to several Ethiopian places in DC, and this place is totally on the level. The food is absolutely delicious. The service is always, always friendly, no matter who it is - they always look genuinely happy to see you.
As an extra bonus, they sometimes have Afro-beat dance parties here, which are absolutely awesome. People bring drums to play, and you can dance barefoot if you want.
