Good Ethiopian food. Good service. Our server was so incredibly friendly and fun. It was an all around pleasant, nice, peaceful, delicious, and flavorful meal.We got the starter sampler, the Chef's Special, and the Ethiopian lager.

It was our first time eating Ethiopian cuisine and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious, the ambiance feels authentic and the price was very reasonable especially for the area.

It was so delicious! A great start to our time in Orlando. The couple who were running the show were so gracious and took the time to explain everything. We got the sample platter and everything was delicious. I also highly recommend the coffee experience! 5 stars!

Gluten Free & Vegan friendly! Excellent food! Lovely staff! I was the only one who has eaten Etheopian food before so first time for 5 of my family members and they loved it! My son was going between his spicy chicken and his grandfather's spicy lamb he loved both! Out of 6 people, only one previous picky eater didn't want to eat (but he did end up taking some of the lentil bread with him) My family and I will definitely be back!

I don't usually think going to an I-drive strip mall would be so fruitful, but, my mind was definitely changed at Nile. Don't let the scare of a new food type push you away. The team at Nile were so friendly and quickly eased fears of the newbies at the table as the explained how the menu worked, went through their favorites, and talked through the "fear" of using the bread instead of silverware. Important to note, though, there is a lot of spice in this food - not heat - but spice and it's worth every bite. I definitely reccommend the chef platter to try a few different types of meats and spices. We didn't do any vegetarian option, but, I can't imagine they are any less tasty after having the beef and chicken variations. The food comes out on a huge tray, which was totally enough, maybe too much, for our table. It's a small place, so there may be a bit of a wait, but don't let that drag you away. It's worth it.

Excellent flavorful and made fresh. Lots of vegan choices. So tasty and abundant. Wish it was closer to home. Loved the variety of platters. Very friendly staff. Well presented

The food and flavors are great. The portion size is smaller than what I've had at other Ethiopian restaurants (yet plenty). The workers are transactional rather than friendly. Entrees cost about $15-$20 each.The injera was very thin and doro wat was prepared differently than I've had elsewhere. The yebeg tibs, doro wat, misir wat, and vegetarian meal for one were all tasty, and I've had better.If there wasn't a better Ethiopian restaurant right down the street, I would make this my favorite in the Orlando area.

The restaurant has a good decoration but need to improve the ceiling maintenance. The water was dripping from ceiling by the bar and mug can be easily seen on the ceiling. We ordered chef special but the portion disappointed me. The Ethiopian style puff was too thin and without its unique sour aroma. The stew vegetables on the plat were plain. Stew pork and curry-yellowish chicken were only food on the plate, I think okay.The cup for the coffee was not clean. We saw the coffee-residue on the cup. Hope they could improve the customer experience in the short future, either the food offered or the service quality. Thank you.

My rating is based on other Ethiopian places I have tried(also in Ethiopia) with better injera and spicy doro wat. Here, the food is just okay, mostly bland with not so original spices, maybe to match up with the taste of tourists.If you want to try the best injera or Ethiopian, this is not the place. For first timers, this is Okay.Ambiance is good with beautiful Ethiopian decoration but not so busy. You will always find half of the restaurant empty.

So delicious. So fresh. So friendly. Everything I want in a restaurant representing a culture often unrepresented. The staff here treats you like you're family and wants you to leave with an appreciation of authentic Ethiopian cuisine. I don't even know where to start making recommendations because it's all so good and so different from American food. Just forget everything you think you know about the region from Sally Struthers and enjoy a little experimentation. Bonus: you get to eat with your hands using traditional injera bread! Be sure to end your meal with their coffee service. It's more than just a cup, it is quite literally a religious experience coming from what is often regarded as the world's top coffee producer. Price wise it's not terrible, but expect you'll spend easily $30 if you come solo. The meals are built to be shared so if you come with friends, per person you'll spend less.

Who knew that a strip mall on I drive could have such amazing food? Not me.I’ve taken friends here. I’ve taken clients here. I’ve taken my wife here. It’s always great.The service is friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Super helpful for first timers.The menu has a nice selection, whether you want beef, lamb or vegetarian.And everything is hot and made to order. You eat it all with your fingers by picking it up with the Ethiopian “bread” which makes for great conversation as you share (if you choose to) and can talk about what each bite tastes like.I got the meat sampler today. Just enough food with 2 samusas as an app. It was full flavored and wonderful.Last time I got the app sampler and the bigger Chef’s special. Perfect for two of us. I also had a beer which was an ice cold easy too enjoy beer.Prices are fair for what you get too.I can’t wait to go back!!
