“Stunningly Fresh & Flavourful”

Tana Ethiopian Cuisine
Ranked #9 of 147 Restaurants in Brandon
Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 December 2016

A real gem of a restaurant that combines the care of a home-cooked meal with an exotic flair. If you are unfamiliar with Ethiopian food you're in for a treat: there is a remarkable scope of flavours represented in their buffet ... not all spicy, but there are a couple of dishes that certainly "bring the heat". The owners are the kindest folks and very pleased to help first-timers navigate the choices available. Injera (the traditional flatbread served with all dishes) is naturally gluten-free, but there is a more western-style bread not unlike bannock that is also made fresh daily. And the veggies! I can't stress enough how fresh, firm and flavourful is the assortment on offer. Kale, cabbage,carrot, beans, lentils (x3!) potato, beets ... the list goes on and on. Never overcooked and FAR surpassing usual buffet faire. If you're a vegetarian (perhaps not vegan, unless you find butter a worthy cheat) or a farm-fresh fan, look no further.

We really enjoyed our first visit to Tana. The restaurant is super clean and cute inside. The staff is great about explaining what the food is. We were given a guided tour of the buffet, with explanations about how spicy various dishes were. The buffet is probably the best way to go if you want to taste everything. It was all delicious! You can eat Ethiopian style by scooping up your food with the bread, but forks are also provided. Very reasonably priced. We will certainly return.

The staff at Tana are truly so kind, and always so grateful, it is a joy seeing their smiles every time I visit. The food is delicious and always exactly what I am looking for. There are so many new flavours to try, I have been there many times on my own just because I crave their food. Definitely try it at least once--you'll be hooked!!

Friends who eat here regularly invited us to eat with them. We had no idea what the food would be like but we loved it. It is a very friendly atmosphere and the food is delicisous. We ate with our hands and it just seemed right.
