We dined here on a short break to Washington DC having come across it by accident as it was near our hotel (later discovered in was mentioned in my guidebook as amongst top 10 in Georgetown). Having never tried Ethiopian cuisine before, we were delighted when the owner spent time explaining what was on the menu and the style of... More

My wife and I dropped in last night. Within minutes of being seated, the owner of restaurant came by to inquire if we had any questions. When I asked how spicy the eggplant was, he brought me a taste. Wonderful, but too spicy for me. We had the Mushroom App and Spinach & Veg. main, that were exquisite. We also... More

On an exploration for a place to have dinner we passed by this restaurant . We did a quick on line check and it said inexpensive and good. The food itself was ok, kind of bland, and seems to focus on vegetarian items. We had the chicken speciality which was pricy and nothing special. Lemon sorbet dessert in a scooped... More

I was recommended this hotel at our hotel. I had never tried Ethiopian food, but my friend had. We agreed that it was delicious! The food was fresh, healthy and absolutely exquisite; the service was impeccable; the diningroom was beautiful; and the prices were more than reasonable. I will definitely return.

We enjoyed an excellent meal at Das Ethiopian. A mixture of vegetarian and meat for all, each dish was well prepared and more than sufficient in quantity. Our service was also very attentive. If there was one complaint it was that there seemed to be a desire to push toward the sampler platters. However, this may well have been genuine... More
