I tried this twice in the course of three days: none of the choices are well prepared. The pasta is too overcooked, the pizza not very good. No good options. Bad atmopshere. Avoid

We had two breakfasts and two dinners here when we stayed in the Taye Hotel. Nothing out of the ordinary. The important thing was that the food was friendly to foreigner's stomach. This was the first place we tried out kitfo with injera, and we were able to have it fully cooked!

Nice hotel and good restaurant. The selection of food is not much different than the rest of the town and I expected more from an upscale place. The baked fish is worth trying and they have fruit salad, although some from a can. There is a nice big screen TV where I could watch the olympics. The service was good... More

The Taye hotel in Gonder is new and it looks good. It is a higher category hotel.
