Don't be fooled by this place's exterior. The food and service is amazing, not to mention reasonably priced. You eat the food with your hands using bread as a barrier so not elegance eating but we didn't mind. We tried the sampler starter and the...More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Orlando. First, we don’t care for chain restaurants, fast food, or too much of the make-believe world outside. We like adventures and authenticity; the Nile is no-faux, the real-deal. Unless you’ve already tried Ethiopian food and know...More
