Please try you will not be disappointed the food is delicious. The flavor is unbelievable! The only thing I wish there was more food on my plate, but I was full. So good some of the best Ethiopian food I have ever had. It reminded me of my Ethiopian Sister.

The woman that works there really is a big finesse she charged me and my friend 17.99 each but the menu clearly stated it was 13.99. The food was good but her attitude is so rude i called back and asked her why she overcharged us she said things are expensive and she didn’t get new menus.

Absolutely excellent, friendly service, good deals. They keep it a bit warm in there but that has been my experience at most Ethiopian restaurants, also they burn resin incense at times so the smells can be overwhelming if you aren't used to it, but overall it was a delightful experience. Also keep in mind that traditional Ethiopian food is served on one plate for multiple people to share and no silverware is given, instead you are to tear of a piece of the spongy bread and eat it with you hands. All of these things are normal for Ethiopian cuisine so if you are used to american restaurants this can be a bit of a shock but go with it, you won't be disappointed. Update: just had my 3rd visit here and I must say, I really wish I made it to Nashville more often just so I could eat here more... the Awazi Tibs are absolutely amazing and don't be intimidated by the amount of food they bring out if you order the special, just grab a to-go box, the leftovers are nearly just as good reheated as they are fresh. This place is a must try if you are feeling adventurous or just like cuisines that are not the usual, burger, tacos, pastas, and rice, dishes that make up 90% of the restaurant market.
