Incredible place, incredible food.

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... read 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

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

Having never had Ethiopian food before I was a little worried that I may not like it, but figured you can't go wrong with chicken. The Chicken doro wat was fabulous!! I don't like eating at the same place more than once when I'm traveling, but after eating here I continued to crave the food for the rest of my... More

I was thrilled to find an Ethiopian restaurant on my last trip to Orlando. We got the vegetarian platter for two and it was flavorful and delicious. I would recommend it to everyone and will eat there again when I visit Orlando again.

This restaurant won the critic's choice for African food in the 2015 Orlando Sentinel Foodie awards, so we decided to give it a try. Being locals we generally try to avoid "I-Drive," as International Drive is known - but sometimes you have to brave the tourists to experience the good. First, the things to be aware of. 1 - The...

My coworkers and I were in town for a conference. We love Ethiopian food and were so glad that we found the Nile. The staff was very friendly and attentive. They made great suggestions about the menu. The food was tasty, exactly what you would expect in an Ethiopian restaurant. The honey wine is something special, but sweet! Would recommend... More

I didn't know what expect when I was invited to dinner with friends at this restaurant. The food was fresh and delicious, with unique ingredients and spices. The waitress was very helpful guiding us through the menu of unknowns. Most enjoyable and fun outing in a very unique setting. Don't order a cocktail....stick to beer or wine. Trust me.
