“Great food, good people, no atmosphere”

Tigi's Ethiopian Restaurant
Ranked #50 of 178 Restaurants in Ellicott City
Cuisines: Ethiopian

We love Tigi's, but you go there simply for the food, not the atmosphere. It is a bare little room with a few tables, and a TV blaring in the corner. They don't serve alcohol, but you are invited to bring your own beer or wine. But OH THAT FOOD!!!!!!!! Order one of the combo plates, where you get a variety of meat and vegetable dishes that complement one another. Although I am not a vegetarian, I actually prefer their vegan combo platter because it has such a wonderful variety of filling vegetable dishes. Prices are incredibly reasonable, and you will not be disappointed with the quality of the food. They also appear to do a very healthy carry-out business, so take your order home if you don't like the idea of sitting in a plain little room.

My first visit. From the smells to the service it was exceptional from the first step in. Lots of Vegan Ang GF options. Wonderful experience.

looking for lunch - found this place via Google Maps - it is a bit hidden in a strip behind another larger building, small place with about 8 tables, excellent vegan options, the host (I assume also the owner) was pleasant, portions were reasonable, food was tasty but needed more salt, lamb tibs were excellent, nice variety of pepper levels (some zero for my wife, some medium for me), the restaurant was busy for lunch when we left and the host scrambled to cover it, recommended

I stopped in for take-out. The owner was so friendly! I ordered the lamb and it was flavorful and tender. I will be back!

We had Vegan combination platter and some had chicken and lamb. All very good! Nice to have such a delicious vegan option when eating out.
