In laws took my husband and I here so I don't know what the prices are like but the food is amazing and the staff was wonderful. You don't get to use a fork or spoon which is traditional Ethiopian style so that was fun but difficult. We did the communal bowl thing which was nice. It was okay since... More

A surprisingly good restaurant - located, of all places in P'ville. The fare was excellent, and fun to eat off trays and by hand. The ambiance leaves something to be desired and somewhat noisy, but a good experience nontheless.

This restaurant was wonderful. Great food, great service and nice atmosphere. We had the vegetarian platter and it was unforgettable. Wish I knew how to cook some of this at home!

I went here with my husband when we first moved to town. The food is delicious, unique, and filling. The decor is colorful and the staff was very nice. What a treat!

We came here to meet our niece and her husband. She is the vegan in the family and loves this restaurant near her house, but so does her meat-eating husband, so it seemed like the perfect place to meet. Ethiopian food is interesting just from a cultural standpoint. Other than for the appetizers and salad, they don't use utensils. We... More

Auntie at Austin again :) First stop after landing was Taste of Ethiopia - I was hungry. This is SisL's fave Ethiopian restaurant so yeah, they're on top of my list for this trip. They didn't disappoint. We ordered the vegetarian Ultimate Combo. Oh, plus the Lamb Tibbs. That's my first lamb dish ever. Great blend of spices so no... More

We almost didn't stop since we were on our way back to Houston but I'm sure glad we did. It was just after noon on a Sunday and when we stepped in we were greeted with a huge smile and told we could sit where ever we chose. My wife found it too cold in the restaurant so we sat... More

Our first experience with Ethiopian food and so much fun. Waitress was "somewhat" eager to help us novices. She could've been more encouraging. However, I had checked trip advisor for advice and were not disappointed in our food choices. But, the place is so dirty...dust bunnies dripping off wall art and obvious spills dripping down the walls. Eager to have... More
