Went here while walking around Georgetown one evening. I love Ethiopian food. It’s one of my favorite cuisines. Based on its ratings I was hoping this would be a great meal. It was just ok. The sitting area is pretty nice, especially by Georgetown’s standards....More

It was very good food. Service was very good. The servers were just the right asking if anything was needed, but also to give you time to enjoy. Had three entrees and it comes with the teff bread (injera). Had a lovely evening. Very nice...More

Excellent place for dinner, especially if you get an outdoor table. Loved their wine by the glass selection- the Nobilio Sauvignon Blanc and Rose wine were quite nice. And their Miser wat, Chicken (with egg) and chick peas as well were quite nice.
