Messed up good

Got the veg sampler, super delicous. Filling for a single person, came very well cooked. Highly recommend anyone try it. Will definitely go back.

I've hadbetter

Staff was extremely friendly. Clean inside. I had the veggie sampler. Everything was luke warm. Nothing really wow. Also you can't share a sampler? Is $15/person. I've had so much better Ethiopian elsewhere.

Pros: friendly, clean

Cons: expensive, not hot

Best Vegetarian (mostly vegan) Options

This restaurant deserves 5 stars! They have an entire vegetarian entree menu. All of the vegetarian options are vegan too except one appetizer. The food is phenomenal. It's served Ethiopian style (you eat with injera bread instead of utensils), so it's also a unique dining experience.

Pros: veggie menu, mainly vegan

Some of the best Ethiopian food I've ever had :-)

My omni husband and I greatly enjoyed our vegetarian (all vegan!) sampler where we chose 5 vegetarian dishes from the menu. Our sampler included the Misir Wot in Bebere Sauce (a lentil dish with minced onions), the Tikil Gomen (cabbage-carrot dish with sauteed onions and fresh garlic), and the Ye Abesha Gomen (Collard greens simmered with minced onions, fresh garlic and ginger), all served on vegan spongy bread. We also enjoyed the vegan homemade lentil soup quite a bit. Portions on the sampler platter are large, so be sure to bring a container to take some home if you're not ravenously hungry. (They will provide a styrofoam container if you don't have your own.)

We've eaten at about a half dozen Etiopian restaurants, and this one was tied with Horn of Africa in Portland, OR for our favorite. In addition to the excellent food, one thing we liked about this restaurant is that they weren't burning incense, unlike the two Ethiopian restaurants we've eaten at in Silver Spring, MD. The only drawback I see for this place (other than serving meat) is parking--it's metered street parking only. The woman at the restaurant told us however that meters are not enforced after 6 pm.

Pros: Excellent Food

Cons: Metered Street Parking only.
