Hands down, one of my favorites spots to eat out! I love the people and food, they keep me coming back every time.

The food is absolutely the best Eritrean/Ethiopian cuisine in the entire Metropolitan Area. The flavor of the food is full of energy and the atmosphere makes you feel like your at home with old friends.

This is an incredible U street secret. It's a dive but relaxed, great value for money and fantastic food. Typically no menus, they just bring out a platter and keep replenishing till you're full. The beer and wine is really cheap and the food is delicious. It takes a while to come out but you can hang out in the adjoining room and play ethiopian/ eritrean pool (they don't use sticks) while waiting, or exchange a word with the old, pleasant men who spend their evenings at the bar. wonderful service, family run.

This is by far the best restaurant on U street. I love the atmosphere. If you want to enjoy a drink(very cheap) or just sit, relax and chat with some friends over a light meal, this is the place. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!
