I had asked for a surprise birthday dinner at somewhere different. My only hint - I have never had that type of food before. Considering I grew up in NYC, I have eaten at many different types of restaurants, this was going to be quite a challenge. Amongst themselves, they joked about Ethiopian. Well, checking reviews and seeing all the... More

Everyone in our large party really enjoyed the food. The vegetarians sat on one end and enjoyed a variety of dishes. The meat-eaters sat at the other end and enjoyed theirs. We told the very kind server that we were really hungry yet waited longer than many other tables that came in later. She was cluelessly waiting for a particular... More

My wife and I went recently while visiting Orlando. We ordered the Chef's special for two. It was more than enough and absolutely scrumptious. I have nothing but praise for this restaurant in all respects.

Everywhere we travel, we look for Ethiopian restaurants, Nile is the best we have found so far. Everything is wonderful, be sure to try the honey wine. Shopping center is a bit shabby, don't let that deter you. Go. Now!

Having had a very nice experience at an Ethiopian restaurant in Houston, we decided to give it a go here. We were not disappointed. We ordered the Chefs special, which comprised a large platter of spicy chicken, beef and veggies on a giant injera base. We added lamb to it, and our party of 4 were happy campers. We were... More

My first time eating Ethiopian food and it was a lovely experience. A lovely range of flavours and fun to eat with your fingers. The staff were really pleasant and helpful and I'd happily return.

I really wanted to like this place. But my visit wasn’t a good one. At 8.30pm on a Monday evening there were only seven people dining in what is a 75 seater restaurant. Just one server although the owners occasionally supplemented her presence. The atmosphere was quiet and lighting a little dim. The first disappointment was that none of the... More

We always seek out an Ethiopian Restaurant where ever we go and were so happy to find the best 30 minutes from our home. I must say it is located in a very odd strip mall behind a wing joint and a little tough to find. We have eaten at the Nile many times and have always been pleased. Our... More
