Nile currently tops the list of my favorite restaurant in the world. Let me say this again, Nile is my favorite restaurant in the world ! That simple. An explosion of flavors, authentic, adventurous, tasteful while incredibly simple. There is not pretentiousness here, the food is the way it is supposed to be and the way it is supposed to... More

Meant to leave this review from visiting last year but never got round to it. May be a bit sketch on the details as it has been so long! Firstly i remember this as being one of the best meals of my whole 3 week visit to the states. In an area laden with chain eateries it was refreshing to... More

Yet another hole-in-the-wall place, it offers an Ethiopian vibe that is as authentic as its food. The inside is composed of exotic décor hanging off of its dark orange and red walls. I immediately noted the pleasingly soft music in the background as we sat down at our table, which was a simple glass table with a white tablecloth. There... More

Having never tried Ethiopian cuisine, and being a lover of exotic foods, I decided to try the restaurant after reading the reams of positive reviews. The service throughout was fantastic, and I was very impressed with the starter, a sambusa, which was wonderfully spicy. Yet my hopes of a pleasant meal crashed when the main course arrived. I ordered a... More

Everything we ate was so delish. We had 5 ppl so we each ordered a different meat +vegetarian. It was a good selection of meats. Honey wine is amazing. Must get. We sat in the hut and that was fun in itself. If you dont like to share or dont like to eat with your hands, dont sit in the... More

We have been wanting to try Nile for quite some time and were not disappointed. The staff is very friendly and helpful and willing to give advice to newbies. I don't like spicy food so I needed help making sure we ordered mild flavors. The sambusa was wonderful. It was probably the only somewhat spicy item but still not too... More

I LOVE Ethiopian food, but found this food just ok. The prices are fair and the staff were super efficient. The food was too spicy for my small kids. They told us they would be able to put something together for kids, but once we arrived they really didn't have any options. The yellow lentils (I think) were good but... More

Had dinner last nile at the Nile Ethiopian Restaurant. We were a group of 5 people and sat at the traditional seating area. The restaurant has a very friendly atmosphere and the service was personalised and excellent! The food was served in the traditional Ethiopian way, and was delicious. Post dinner, we had Ethiopian coffee, which was superb and served... More

We loved it here! It was our first time trying Ethiopian food and we were not disappointed. Our service was wonderful, and the food was delicious. Very clean, spacious restaurant, definitely worth a visit if you are anywhere near Orlando and like Ethiopian food or are up to a new, fun dining experience :)

We went to eat at the Nile Ethiopian Restaurant on our first evening in Orlando. It was easy enough to find but we had walked from our hotel and had read reviews here first - probably not so easy to find if driving. It was a bit odd at first, we were waiting to be seated and a couple of... More
