I had heard of Gosh on Sutherland in Knoxville. Since we were doing Zumba in Western Plaza we decided to call by Gosh for dinner on the way home. I ordered a beer and the the Doro Combination. The meals at Gosh come with rolls of Injera bread that is used to scoop up the food, so you don't get... More

The atmosphere is nothing spectacular. Simple and clean. The server asked if we were familiar with Ethiopian food, and since not everyone in the party was, she briefly explained how the injera is used as a utensil. She was very helpful and answered all of our questions. We ordered a combination so we could try a little bit of many... More

I've been to Gosh several times and have always had great experiences! The food is delicious and the service is always helpful and friendly! Knoxville isn't known for ethnic foods but this place is better than some Ethiopian restaurants I've been to in Atlanta. If you don't know what to get, try the sampler platter (vegetarian or meat) and get... More

The wait staff was amazing. They helped us find a good sample platter so we could try their types of food. It just wasn't enough flavor for us but it was an experience. It may have been incredibly authentic but I am unsure.

This place is fantastic! Everyone is so nice, and the food is out of this world! It is a different experience and it is probably like nothing you've ever tried. The bread that you eat it with is a little strange, it is flat and very spongy. It's what you use instead of actual utensils to pick up the food.... More

We wanted to try something new and this was highly rated. While I don't regret going, it's not someplace I'll be visiting more than once or twice a year. I feel the food is well made (not really an expert), but I didn't like the pancakey thing you eat the food with. I'm pretty adventurous with the foods I eat,... More

#yum - we will definitely eat here again soon! The food was delicious and we had the most patient server ever! She answered questions about the food, Ethiopian culture and religion. Try this place! Side note: I am a picky picky eater, my sweetheart loves interesting food, we were both super happy with this restaurant

If you're looking for Ethiopian in Knoxville, Gosh delivers. Terri, the owner and cook is attentive and helpful. She has all of the traditional Ethiopian dishes, although I wish they were a little more flavorful and distinct. At this time, you can also bring your own wine!

I enjoy going here because the staff and owner are very pleasant and helpful. The combo dishes are tasty and enough for one peron. This includes both the meat and vegetarian dishes.
