I have eaten Ethiopian food in Washington DC and know how good and tasty this food can be. This was pretty bad. Tasteless. You can have this food not spicey and yet very tasty. It was like eating soft cereal boxes.

I was a little curious about everything how things would be served and so forth. Never been to a restaurant quite like this. Service was pretty good. I let my friend order because I didn't really know what was what. I don't know if I...More

We had heard good things about Zemam's for some time, and we're glad we stopped in. The dining room feels like home, and is warm and inviting. The food and service were wonderful. We had three vegetable entrées with our injera and one meat dish....More

My daughter and I had never eaten Ethiopian food before and enjoyed our meal. We chose a variety so we could sample meats and veggies. I enjoyed the tea too!

We ordered the sampler and the spinach dish. Red lentils and brown lentils and cauliflower. It came on an injeera 'lined' platter. Excellent and not oily. Extra injeera bread was also brought to the table. We couldn't finish out food although three of us shared....More

We love Ethiopian and look for restaurants when we are on vacation. Our son has Celiac and needs gluten free food. We called ahead and they assured us that with advance notice of a few hours they can prepare gluten free injera bread. We had...More
