Always a treat! – I lived in Addis Ababa for three years so when I moved to Nashville I tried several Ethiopian restaurants. This is my favorite. The food and atmosphere are wonderfully authentic. The servers are always friendly and helpful. The food is excellent on all three levels: beauty, aroma, and taste. I go back again and again and have never been disappointed.
Don't Bother – After reading the other reviews, I was really excited about this restaurant. We are not from Nashville so we did not know where the place was located before we set out. As we pulled into the parking lot and got a look at the outside red flags were popping up in my mind but I thought, looks can be deceiving so we should give it a chance. Mistake. Inside looked worse than the outside, the service was terrible and the portions were small. I have had Ethiopian food before and this was so so. Will not ever go here again.
Wonderful Experience – I took my girlfriend here for her birthday. We both love trying different ethnic cuisines and I found this place on citysearch. Terrific food served in an authentic fashion made this a perfect evening. I would highly recommend this restarurant.
Spicy and great – Great food and price point.
Not much atmosphere, but that's what I was looking for in this style place.
Will eat there again.
Great Food – My wife and I read the reviews and gave it a shot last week.
Not disappointed whatsoever. Great seasonings and just the right amount of spice.
Service was a little slow, so don't f if your in a hurry, but worth the wait.
Will go again!
Wow! – I came here having never eaten Ethiopian food. The owners gladly explained what everything was and gave us suggestions on what to order. They were right on. The food was great!
What a treat! – My girlfriend and I went here one night for something different. The owners were very friendly and prompt. This is the only restaurant I have been to regardless of price that did a proper tea service complete with milk, sugar, china and tiny silver spoon. I was most impressed. The basket tables are fun and serve their purpose well. Eating with your hands takes some getting used to but was kind of fun. The flavors were varied and tasty. We got the sample plate and were satisfied and stuffed at the end. The food is pretty much served at room temperature which kind of threw me off at first but the flavors made up for that. We will be going back.
Great Take Out Option – I've had very good Ethiopian food in San Francisco and Seattle, and Horn of Africa stands right up there with the best. I always get their veggie combo to go (along with an order of doro wot--the spicy chicken) when I get the craving for the spicy and intense flavor of Ethiopian food. The injera bread here is plentiful and spongy--just perfect! Some of their dishes tend to be a little greasy, but wash it down with a cold beer and you have an ideal meal for a cold winter night.
No utensils? No problem. Authentic Ethiopian dishes are the order of choice at this hands-on African eatery. – In Short
Sparse decor keeps the focus on the food, while the traditional basket tables prepare diners for something different. Exotic dishes like kitfo (ground beef) and doro wat (chicken and onions) are spicy, but newcomers can never go wrong with a sampler platter that includes plenty of Ethiopian flatbread known as injera. The injera doubles as utensils and allows patrons to enjoy the guilty pleasure of eating with their fingers without violating any laws of etiquette.
