We went for lunch and had the vegetarian combination option and an appetizer. The waitress was friendly and kind. The place was clean and seemed to be popular to regular customers, which was nice. The food was flavorful and priced well. Our meal in total cost about $21 for three people to eat. I would go again.

I went to Enat for a late lunch. I got a vegetable sampler and a dessert wine. The vegetable sampler was good and too much food for one person. I couldn't finish it. I also liked the dessert wine.

I was here once before almost over a year ago but didn't have a chance to really take it in. My meal was tasty, flavorful and I was served a most generous portion that had me needing to be rolled out of the place. A warm inviting atmosphere is great for a casual couples night out, a family visit or... More

I've never been to an Ethiopian restaurant before. They serve all the dishes for the whole table on a giant piece of pancake type bread. The food was very good and it was fun learning how to eat with your hands and eat in more of a communal style....not what I'm used to but it was good.

I've eaten at several Ethiopian places in the DC area. They have all been good. Enat is no exception, recommended by numerous Ethiopian expats. We loved the food and the service. Prices were very reasonable.

Took out-of-town guests on a Friday evening. The service was great, the food was delicious, the portions were generous, and it was wonderful to see Ethopian diners at nearby tables.

This unassuming restaurant located on a busy street in Alexandria serves fantastic Ethiopian food. We ordered 2 different types of tibs and one of almost raw beef. Everything was absolutely delicious! The "bread" was completely soaked by the end of the meal and was so tasty. Excellent and helpful wait staff.
