This place is delicious! I have been to this restaurant 2 years ago on my first visit to DC. Back then it seemed full and it seemed only reservations would be seated, but the owner/manager appeared and let us know that we can be seated upstairs. The staff then and this time gave us suggestions that were all delicious.
This is family style dining. Each person orders what they want, orders will be presented on a large platter for everyone to share. We ate with our hands using the Ethiopian sour bread that is thin, almost like a crepe. There are spoons and forks I'm sure they can give you if requested.
The place has white linen napkins and table clothes, waitstaff are smartly dressed.
The reason I rated this 4 stars is because of their lack of bathrooms. There are 2 bathrooms with 1 toilet each and rather old plumbing I assume since 2 years ago and this time one of the bathrooms became unusable during my stay.
That is my only criticism. The owner/manager is regularly checking and helping to make sure everyone is being served as well as the staff regularly checking. My water glass barely had a chance to be empty before it was being refilled.
This time and last time we could barely finish our meal. I would say that unless you are starving you would be hard pressed to eat everything.
