Get a combo, eat with your hands, skip the wine and order a beer. The Chef's Combo is enough for 3 and everything in it is good. The food is well spiced, but not hot. Skip the fork and knife and go "native" use the bread as a tasty envelope to deliver the food to your mouth. Unless you like... More

A group of friends suggest dinner here as a nice departure from some of the other ethnic cuisines we've tried in the past. The restaurant had a steady stream of guest, some seemed experienced in Ethiopian cuisine and others seemed to be novices. The servers attempted to be friendly but seemed rather rushed and basically filled water, took orders and... More

In the land of pizza, burgers, and a myriad of tiresome offerings, it was a pleasant surprise to find a unique restaurant. It took some driving through International Dr., congested as usual, but it was worth it. We ordered the Chef's special for two with a couple of cups of their house made wine (based on honey and herbs) and... More

We've had Ethiopian several times before but this place is something special. We really loved the authentic atmosphere (beautifully decorated), the staff was great... But above all, the FOOD. We had the vegetarian platter for two (very vegetarian-friendly options!) and every dish was not only tasty but so different from what we usually have. This is a must for all... More

Staying on I Drive for 2 week holiday and was yearning for a different meal (there's only so many burgers, ribs, steak, pizza n fries you can eat!). Read reviews on this restaurant and was intrigued. My husband and two grown up sons decided we'd try - we were not disappointed. Visited on a Tuesday evening around 9pm. Not particularly... More

The dining experience was great, all 4 of us eating off a platter with our fingers in a restaurant devoted to an african theme. Unfortunately for us the food came up a little short on taste, we paid a little extra for it to be spiced up and to be honest it was little bland. The server although a very... More

So, we fancied a curry and couldnt find anywhere that we fancied, and ended up seeing this on the internet. Its stuck in between an Irish pub and Pizza Hut, so you have to walk to it to see it. The food is absolutely amazing, everything was so tasty, the Ethiopian beers were really good too. Highly recommended if you... More

I was in Orlando for a trade show, and discovered this lovely restaurant next to my hotel. It is not that easy to find. It was incredibly fresh and delicious, with a relax atmosphere (no loud music). I enjoyed the videos presented on the large screens, with a taste of Ethiopian culture and dance. If you go there, I highly... More
