I've been here 3 times before. Each experience was a little different, in terms of how much I enjoyed the food, but all were good overall. The lunch buffet is a nice way to get familiar with the various dishes. The family-style dinner service was a nice experience, but the coffee and dessert (cheesecake) was unexpectedly the best part of... More

Everything about this restaurant makes me happy! This place is owned and operated by a joy-filled Ethiopian family that love sharing their culture and cuisine! If you're a bit wary of trying exotic fare, the family will put you at ease and excite you about your upcoming experience. The restaurant is immaculately clean and the design is simple with some...

Small friendly and delicious. To be honest I am not the most adventurous diner but the veggies were wonderful and meat so tender you cut with a fork. Beats the heck out of fast food in Pflugerville. Ok the coffee is to DYE for as well but the owner is the jewel in this crown.... She greets you and explains... More

The meal was fun from start to finish. The service was warm and friendly. At no time was intimidating. I was nervous about an entirely new cuisine but or waiter assured me that everyone will enjoy it. He was right. The food was amazing and so fun to eat. We will be back soon.

This was my first time eating Ethiopian food. My husband and I were invited to go with another couple we know, and I didn't entirely know what to expect. I was delighted by our experience!! One of the owners waited on our table and she was so friendly and helpful, moving us to a table On the breezy covered patio... More

It is so nice to have wonderful authentic ethinic foods comming to the Pfluegerville / Round Rock area. Not only was the food amazing, the staff made us... More

We have used Taste of Ethiopia several times for catering at our fundraising event. Winnie (the owner) is a jewel. Very helpful and always upbeat. And oh yes, the food is great too! Always exciting to give folks a taste of Ethiopian food for the first time.
