OK, that's not saying much since it is the ONLY Ethiopian restaurant in Knoxville. But I loved it and will go back. Very unique dining experience and delicious!

As most people, I was a little nervous trying Gosh the 1st time. What kind of ingredients would they use? Would it be super spicy? I had all sorts of questions. What I found was a nice atmosphere with staff that didn't mind questions. The...More

Great place if you're looking for something unique. Go with a group and get a combo platter for the best experience (and be prepared to eat with your hands!)

For years after I moved to Knoxville from the Washington, DC area, I missed Ethiopian cuisine. No longer. Gosh is a family-friendly, easygoing restaurant with great food, served on large platters with lots of injera, the spongy bread used to scoop up the stews and...More

My daughter loves this place. For my first time, I really enjoyed the vegetarian dish. It's a little strange not eating with utensils, but the type of bread provided assures that you will not miss a bite! Ask for utensils if you prefer, the are...More
