Very warm atmosphere and super friendly people. The food was really awesome. And very good portions. Happy to engage this authentic taste full fingers in. Filled our stomachs royally.To my surprise, there is buffet with 80% vegan options. And they were very accommodating which made it feel like home.We also completed the meal with the Ethopian Coffee. Definitely, saving this location whenever we pass through again.Big thank you! More...

This was excellent. This was me and my husbands first time trying this restaurant. The food was so delicious. My husband is very selective with what he eats and he absolutely enjoyed the meal. They had a buffet which allowed us to first try a little of everything vegan and it all was very good. We will definitely go back. More...

I got the 5 item veggie combination and my boyfriend got the lamb tibs for dinner. All the food was AMAZING! Everything was seasoned well and went together well. Our server (whose name I can't remember) was extremely friendly and he answered all of our questions and gave recommendations. I definitely consider this a hidden gem of Greensboro More...

Taste of Ethiopia is so delicious! I like going for the buffet and getting to try a little bit of everything. Everything I’ve eaten here has been amazing and the service is great, everyone is so sweet. I live in Winston Salem and don’t get to Greensboro often but when I do, Taste of Ethiopia is always my first pick. They need support and I will be so sad if I don’t get to experience their amazing dishes anymore, highly recommend!! More...

The food was tasty and authentic for sure! We really enjoyed the fresh injera and 5 vegetable tray. They were a bit confused about our order and the coffee could have been hotter but overall it was a great experience.

First time trying Ethiopian food I didn't cook myself following a sketchy random recipe from the internet. The food was excellent. We sampled six vegan entrées and a cheese side dish, and we couldn't have been more pleased. The flavors were bold, but not aggressive. Simple cabbage and carrots, potatoes or collard greens have never been so flavorful, in my experience. Definitely going back! More...

Always loved the food here! Good recommendations for new comers are the amazing Yebeg tibs(lamb). Also if you like more of a spicy food, try the Kay sega wott! The food isn’t speedy quick but nothing homemade should come out in 5 minutes!! Give it a try! More...

This is not just the only Ethiopian Restaurant in Greensboro but also one of the best restaurants I have had the pleasure of experiencing. The owner and staff are always exceptionally friendly and always have the food prepared perfectly every time. It almost makes it hard to decide from the buffet sometimes or just calling in for an order when you're never disappointed either way! Love the authenticity of the food and the restaurant itself also is rich in Ethiopian culture. I will definitely continue to bring family, friends and recommend a Taste of Ethiopia to others!

This place has Amazing food. It's a small little place, but don't judge the building, or think the food will lack in taste. The food is so good. It's flavored just right. There are so many choices to try. The waiter guy was extremely nice and helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone who loves good food and a quiet experience. More...

Awesome food and service! The lunch buffet is the best option for fast service (and pleasing your mid-day tummy growls), but I highly recommend visiting anytime to try the variety of dishes that will satisfy your hunger and any food centric palate.

When you first walk in, it doesn’t look like a traditional restaurant but don’t be alarm, the food is great! It was pretty quiet when I went with my husband but the service wasn’t bad. My favorite thing wasn’t the food though... it was the coffee! The coffee is amazing! You won’t regret having a cup or 6 haha. I’ll definitely be back, especially for the coffee! More...

If you're looking for fast food, or corporate cooking don't come here. If you're looking for authentic cooking, a relaxing atmosphere (not a TV in the place thank goodness) and friendly service, come here. Be prepared to actually spend time enjoying your meal and not woofing it down. Is the service speedy? No. Is the food good? Yes. Are the prices fair? Absolutely! Give it a try, the lentils are fabulous BTW. More...

Yummmmmm love having an Ethiopian place in the area. Their food is great and it's usually quiet in there. If you're unfamiliar with the food I'd recommend going during the lunch buffet for a cheap way to try a variety of their main dishes. Make sure you use the injera to eat with your hands, it's the best part. Awesome spot for a fun date. More...

I absolutely love this restaurant! We always go for the buffet and there is always a good variety and selection. My favorite is the goat and the bread is always amazing. We are regulars so when we dine there we are always greeted and made to feel welcome. If you are new to Ethiopian food I would suggest you visit when they have the buffet so you can try a bit of everything. If you are looking for something different please give them a try. More...

Service was great. Food was amazing! I’m not sure what that other review about bland flavor was about because my taste buds loved every bite and I’m a soul food lover, plus I’m southern. The baklava was warm and toasty, by far the best I’ve had in the triad. Perfectly vegetarian friendly. I will DEFINITELY be going back soon More...

Despite Greensboro’s considerable culinary diversity, area residents in search of Ethiopian have had no recourse but to trek out to the Triangle until now. For that reason alone, Taste of Ethiopia is a welcome addition. But make no mistake: this new restaurant’s appeal extends far beyond novelty.For the uninitiated, Ethiopian cuisine can be daunting. Instead of using silverware, diners are given rolls of spongy injera bread to sop up meats, vegetables, and sauces. Get beyond that, however, and you’re likely to encounter some similarities to certain types of Indian cooking: both are sauce and seasoning heavy and feature lentils prominently.Having had – and enjoyed – Ethiopian once before, I found that a Taste of Ethiopia did not disappoint but did offer a few quirks and surprises. My companion and I split a $30 dinner combination for two that included lamb tibs (cubed, spiced, and sautéed), beef wot (cubed, sauced, and marinated), and doro wot (marinated and sautéed chicken legs) as well as several vegetable (lentils, peas, collards, etc.) offerings. All of the dishes were well-seasoned though not as spicy as expected. The lamb, beef, and yellow peas were standouts; the chicken was succulent, but not something I would order on its own. The accompanying injera was also served lukewarm, a strange decision until you realize that hungry patrons may not relish waiting for their edible silverware to cool.A family-owned establishment, Taste of Ethiopia offers an atmosphere that is bright, clean, and (occasionally distracting music aside) quiet and a staff that is friendly, attentive, and unfailingly polite. Portions are generous for the pricetag: entrees run from $10.50 for vegetarian dishes up to $13 for lamb, and our combination dinner could have easily fed one more.If there is one drawback to eating Ethiopian (here or elsewhere) it is that it can take some time to get through a meal. But if the craving for something different strikes you and your hunger does not overwhelm your patience, Taste of Ethiopia certainly merits your consideration. More...
