With so many Ethiopian options in Downtown Silver Spring, it's often hard to choose - but Abol has become by go-to. The food is consistently top notch. Whether I'm dining in or taking out, I know I can depend on the reasonable prices and delicious options on the vegetarian platter. Extra injera is a nominal fee and well worth it.
I always grab an order of the lentil sambusas - one of the top reasons that keeps me coming back. The lentils are perfectly spiced. The wrapper is crisp. If you're stopping by with a friend, I recommend ordering the appetizer for each because one is simply not enough to satisfy the craving.
Abol is a solid spot conveniently located on Colesville. The food is reliably great and the service is wonderful. Definitely recommend!

I have always love to try different type of food from diffirent countries and Ethiopian food is definitely unique and the way you eat withoit utensils is actually fun.

The lady who helped me was very nice and my fiod was ready very fast, i will absolutely come back for more.

"I don't ever recall having eaten Ethiopian food prior to my visit to Abol. So, I can't really compare this to other restaurants with this cuisine. The flavors are unique and savory. The bread they serve with the meal is for sure like none you've ever had and pairs well with the flavors and style of eating. The service was delightful. My server explained what I was getting and traditional ways of enjoying the plate. She was knowledgeable of ingredients and preparation too. This place is fun just to try the exotic food."
"Best Ethiopian Restaurant I've Been to and that's coming from a true Ethiopian. I remember the favors and spices from back home and the food at Abol always brings me back. The New Manger is really nice and welcoming she makes everyone feel like their part of a family. The restaurant Gives off a homey, inviting vibe that makes you feel very comfortable. If I ever want ethiopian food I know abol will never disappoint I've been there 4 times so far and love the food more and more every time, can't express how much I love this place highly recommend if you want authentic Ethiopian
Cuisine. Great service by the way"
"I have been here twice so far and it is definitely a great place to eat. Chill atmosphere, great food, great prices, and if you want it EXTRA spicy you can get that Mitmita seasoning on the side and kick it up. Definitely a place where you can tell you will become a regular."
"This must be one of the nicest places to eat in downtown Silver Spring, MD. The service is fantastic and the food good. I would highly recommend it."
"Love this place. Food is always super. Great service. Catering easy and reasonably priced. Highly recommended!!!"
