Ethiopian in Bethesda?!?

RainLaurel Apr 30, 2008 08:43 PM

Is there a good Ethiopian restaurant in Bethesda? I want to have my birthday party in Bethesday on Saturday night and would like to go for Ethiopian food.

    I'm not aware of one. Short of going downtown, the nearest one I know of is in downtown Silver Spring.

        There are two - Addis Ababa, which I like more than Langano. Not as good as the better places in DC these days, but worth going to.

        Addis Ababa Restaurant
        8233 Fenton St, Silver Spring, MD 20910

        Langano Ethiopian Restaurant
        8305 Georgia Ave, Silver Spring, MD

          There's a 3rd in Silver Spring, Abol, across the street from the AFI Silver Theater on Colesville Rd.

            That must be pretty new. How does Abol compare with Addis Ababa?

              abol opened sometime within the last 6 months. there's a write up of it in the Washington Post you might want to check out. (I haven't tried it, so I can't be of more help)
