The hubs and I stopped in here for lunch. At first we thought it was Egyptian but we we're just as delighted to try Ethiopian. It was pretty good. Very different from our regular fare! We'll be back to try some more dishes.

I've eaten here before but took a co-worker for his first visit. The owner was friendly and explained the food. Everything was served quickly, and it was quite flavorful. The spice level was just right, but they can assist it for the faint hearted folks....More

Always a satisfying dining experience, great food and service. Ambience is not great but they have authentic ethiopian coffee, wine and beer and they play good african music. Rochester needs more exotic restaurants such as The Nile.

Nile restaurant has replaced the structure of previous Indian restaurant - Clay Oven. Given its location it remains in one of the less crowded areas of the city. Its predecessor died after starving for business. I hope this one thrives! Food presentation was very typical...More
