8233 Fenton Street, Silver Spring, MD 20910


Our fresh, healthy, traditional dishes are prepared with spices imported directly from Ethiopia, and cooked according to time-honored Ethiopian recipes. While Addis Ababa is famous for its authentic vegetarian cuisine, our menu offers a variety of poultry, lamb and beef selections.

Join us for lunch or dinner. Our décor will transport you to a faraway place where food is all about flavor, and service is all about the warmest hospitality. We encourage you to try a glass of Ethiopian honey wine. And there’s no more festive way to end your evening than our traditional Ethiopian coffee service, where we roast and grind our custom, imported beans — then brew each cup just for you.

If this is your first experience with Ethiopian cuisine, you’re in for a treat. Our servers will answer all your questions and guide you through your dining decisions. Ethiopian restaurants have become increasingly popular over the past few decades. But to experience the finest Ethiopian dishes, there is only one Addis Ababa — the capital of Ethiopian cuisine.
