My family loves to get food to go from Excellent Table, there are a number of things to choose from, and the menu rotates everyday. It is so nice to have something different to eat. The owner is very friendly. I highly recommend trying it out!

I recently visited Excellent Table and had high expectations after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. I was not impressed with the quality of food or the price. I lived above the Blue Nile in Harrisonburg, VA for quite some time and eat Ethiopian cuisine every chance that I get. I was hoping that excellent table would be better as I... More

A surprise find in Blacksburg. I have eaten at the Excellent Table many times but my most interesting visit occurred recently when accompanied by first timers, my brother and best friend. An initial visit is an unmatched experience when the immediate explosion of flavors engulfs your palate. The balance of spices and sauces are a worthy venture into this little... More

I've had Ethiopian in Ann Arbor, Baltimore, and New York. The rich spices and quality ingredients rival all - and in such a small place as Blacksburg! The dining area is well, down-to-earth let's say, but owner/service is super nice, and since we called ahead, very quick.

Personally, I am not a fan of Ethiopian food. However, the other members of my family highly enjoyed this restaurant. They give it five stars - I see no reason not to as well. The service was wonderful, the owner is very sweet and she is a graduate of Virginia Tech herself. She is a hard worker and has opened... More

Searching for an ethnic place that stands worlds apart from typical college town dives? LOOK NO FURTHER! You will not find a better takeout restaurant in all of Blacksburg, though it's worth a mention that the establishment features a small seated dining area as well. The service is excellent, food is top-knotch, and one serving will satisfy your appetite for... More

Delicious! What more to say. This is a tiny kitchen near the back of the farmer's market. The chef and owner is Ethiopian and so are the dishes. Very hearty food served on hand made Ethiopian pancake (Injeera), with choice of sauces (meat or veggie, spicy or mild). And Ethiopian coffee. Prices seem high but dishes are satisfying enough to...

First time I had Ethiopian food. The owner was very helpful by letting me try all the food she had available. The menu is different everyday. She makes everything fresh. I would also recommend her tropical ice tea. The food was excellent. And the price was reasonable.

This place is a real gem in Blacksburg. There are different options on a daily basis with some things quite spicy and others much less so. The prices are reasonable and the lady who owns the restaurant and does the cooking is very friendly. The only downside is no seating in the restaurant. Hopefully when the new park just outside...
