This was recommended by our server [from Ethiopia] at another restaurant. It's in a small strip mall, and it you weren't looking for it, you might not be apt to walk in. The doro wot and the vegetable combination dish [Yetsom Beyaynetu?] were extremely tasty....More

Tried most of their cuisine and found them to be very delicious. Specially the Kitfo with all the side dishes (Ayibe, Mitmita,Gomen, ) tastes original and superb!

Friends recommended this restaurant as my first exposure to Ethiopian food. I was immediately hooked. I've had the vegetarian combo multiple times now. Their bar serves pretty good drinks as well.

This was a very attractive and reasonable find from the Washingtonian best restaurants listings. It was packed with Ethiopian and European customers and families. They serve Ethiopian and regular beers and drinks as well. Free parking. Great find and we were so happy.

I went to Enat for a late lunch. I got a vegetable sampler and a dessert wine. The vegetable sampler was good and too much food for one person. I couldn't finish it. I also liked the dessert wine.

I've never been to an Ethiopian restaurant before. They serve all the dishes for the whole table on a giant piece of pancake type bread. The food was very good and it was fun learning how to eat with your hands and eat in more...More
