The food was excellent, the experience was priceless.

My mom, sister and I ate here on our last night in Orlando and I'm so glad we did. It's in an unassuming location that we wouldn't have stumbled upon if I hadn't found it online. None of us had tried Ethiopian cuisine before but our waitress was so friendly and happy to make sure that we thoroughly... read more

Very delicious food. My daughter was asleep and the hostess pulled a couple of chairs to make a bed for her and even gave her a pillow.

We saw the ratings for this unusual restaurant and decided to try it. Firstly we had to find it - it's tucked away between the Pizza Hut and Buffalo Wild Wings at the back next to the Comedy Theatre. It is different - you eat it with your hands - the waitress showed us how you tear off some flatbread... More

I have never had Ethiopian food before so can't compare to the original cuisine but I thought the food was delicious and excellent value. I could have made a meal out of the tomato fitfit alone. The vegetarian combo platter for 2 was superb. The meats were tasty but I would recommend going vegetarian here- it's far superior.

I ate here with a small group for dinner on a Sunday evening. The restaurant is pretty neat inside, the wait staff are very friendly and helpful in answering questions and offering suggestions. I also tried Ethiopian beer for the first time and it was pretty good. My friend had the honey wine and it was delicious. It was a... More

I have had Ethiopian food many times at three different restaurants while living in Amsterdam between 2007 and 2012. All were quite delicious and reasonably priced. Nile is my first Ethiopian experience here in the US and I was disappointed. The food quality was a notch below my previous experiences, food choices were fine, service was fine, atmosphere was okay,... More

Nile is perhaps the finest restaurant I've ever tried in my entire life. It is rather difficult for me to state that a restaurant is of high quality let alone to give a restaurant a perfect score. However, considering the numerous restaurants I've tried and the numerous forms of cuisine I've had, my impressions of this restaurant are rather significant.... More

I have eaten Ethiopian in D.C., Chicago, Montreal, Atlanta, Ann Arbor and East Lansing, Michigan. This is an EXCELLENT Ethiopian Restaurant. From what I know about Ethiopian food here in the U.S. I believe it to be authentic. Yes, it's not an easy restaurant to find, but I recommend checking it out whether you are a Tourist or Native to... More

Ok - We admit we've never had Ethiopian food. So, we really have nothing with which to compare. The restaurant is difficult to find - even with GPS. It sits behind the Titanic exhibit in a small strip mall. As far as we could see, there was no signage on the street. So go slow and look carefully! The dining... More
