The food was just amazing! A couple of bucks more over the base price for a sampling platter brings the fried snapper, do not make the mistake of missing this. We had the fasting season special of 14 vegetarian dishes, along with Lamb Wot. The meal was more than enough for two. Waitress refilled my water glass about 14 times and the extra bread we requested was on the table in under a minute. When you finally roll out full and happy the U Street - Cardozo Metro stop is one block west. We knew there were many Ethiopian restaurants in Washington and were discussing which to go to, an older gentleman who may have been Ethiopian interjected, "Go to Dukem, it's on U around 11 - 13th, it is the best in the city". Let his excellent recommendation to me be mine to you.

This restaurant used to be my favorite Ethiopian restaurant since 1998. The food tasted just like a home cooked meal. It was amazing. However, this has all changed! As of 2005. I stopped going there because the food was just horrible. Another thing is the service, it is horrible as well. The server would not bring anything you ask on time, they are all over the place. In addition they are more worried about how they look than the customer. Wow! What a big change, they did a 360 within five year period.

Yuck Yuck Yuck!!!

The food here is really really great. It is authentic and prepared in a proper amount of time. The fish is excellent. The prices are good as well. To me, this is the best Ethiopian restaurant in D.C. They also have take-out which is already prepared in the container with the injera so kind of hard to reheat if you have salad but salad can always be removed for reheating purposes. Usually crowded in the evening when they open so get there early.
