I’ve only had Ethiopian one other time and this one was by far the best. Food was so delicious and filling they almost had to roll me out the front door. Staff is super friendly and explain the dishes if you need. And if you...More

Great food, for a vegetarian too. Well spiced and seasoned, and the injera was decent. Try the tea, which is deliciously spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom. They have worked on the ambiance - tried hard to appear 'Ethiopian' but some may find it tacky.

We were introduced to Ethiopian cuisine while visiting Atlanta. Since we live in Orlando, we decided to try this restaurant. The food quality and taste wasn't very food compared to other Ethiopian restaurants we tried. The injera was ok. The meats were not very fresh....More

The owners import ingredients from Ethiopia. The owners and (largely) the staff are Ethiopian. I asked our waitress (who had a deep accent), how the food compared to what she ate at in Ethiopia? She said, "We eat this... More

Yes I'm sure it would be fine. As another traveller has said, the food is very different to Western cuisine, so the kids would need to be prepared for that. But the Nile staff would make your kids incredibly welcome and feel... More
