Really enjoyed lunch here. The food was well seasoned and plentiful. If you just order several dishes they will put them on a communal dish (Ethiopian style), or each person can have their own plate. You get a platter of injera (sourdough flatbread) which you...More

I visited this restaurant on a quick trip to New Orleans on a Friday. My husband and I arrived right when the place opened, so we were the first to be served. The atmosphere is pretty casual, probably not date nite ambiance. However, the food...More

We arrived around 6pm. There was no wait. We ordered the whole fish, which takes a little longer to prepare, the waiter said. We also got a vegetable plate. Both were excellent and enough food for two adults since these are large servings. Both entrees...More

My wife and I both love Ethiopian food so when I saw this restaurant go by while we were taking a bus I couldn't resist altering our lunch plans. We had curried lamb and a veggie sampler, both of which were delicious. Highly recommended!

I had never been to Nile but I'm a big fan of Ethiopian food. This place is awesome. It's simple on the inside, but their vegetarian platter is gorgeous and the flavors complex. It's a great value, too. You won't be disappointed!

Good people. They just need an Experienced Ethiopian COOK. I had the veggie platter , didn't taste anything like Ethiopian food I am accustomed to.

If you're not familiar with Ethiopian food, you may not like it. But we enjoyed ourselves. Vegetarian options abound. Beef tibs and veggie platter were delicious. Samnbusas were good; they were out of beef option. Service was a little slow, hence the missing star rating....More

We come to New Orleans looking for Ethiopian food because it isn't available in Pensacola. The restaurant we've been to before was closed, so we tried the Nile, just up the street. We are so glad we did. First, you walk in and the place...More

After reading the super reviews below, I thought this would be the time to try Ethiopian. There's no way 8 good reviews on TripAdvisor could lead to a bad restaurant, right? Wrong! Either there has been a significant change in management since the last review...More

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give
