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.

Loved the food and the experience! Get the Nile Special for Two if you want to try several different flavors. We ordered the vegetarian which was one of the best vegetarian feasts I have had the priviledge to consume. My husband, who discovered this place on a business trip, had to get his favorite, the lamb dish added on. Try... More

I went to the Nile Ethiopian out of curiosity and didn't regret. My hotel was around International Drive area, so if you are staying there it will be an easy spot. I am vegetarian and so I ordered the Nile Vegetarian Combination (5 vegetarian entrées) to have a more varied and complete experience. The dish was very well served for... More

Recently had dinner here with family. It appears to be a family run place. . Service is slow but then the place appeared to be busy. Do not go if you are planning for fine dining, it is a casual place but clean and family friendly. High point is the quality of food. It is a paradise for both vegetarians... More

Our family of 4 went here for dinner while visiting Orlando the week after Christmas. We have had authentic Ethiopian food cooked by out neighbors in their hime, and have visited several of the wonderful Ethiopian restaurants in the DC area. Nile is right on part with what we deem really good Ethiopian cuisine. Our waitress was friendly and the... More

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 enjoyed the... 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.
