Best Ethiopian restaurants in DC?

  • 3

Hi, I'm in DC for the summer (kind of all over the place, but near U Street for now), and I love Ethiopian food. What are the best places to go to?

  1. I never been, but I hear great things about Dukem on U street....

    1. Dukem, Etete, and Queen Makeda seem to come up on most "best" lists. QM is the easiest of the 3 to get a table during prime dining hours.

      1. Dukem is good, if you like a more lively & noisy atmosphere. Zed's in Georgetown is good if you like it a bit more quiet and intimate. I've found Dukem to be very oily, but extremely delicious.
