I gave this place a raving review last time. I am adding this one because I wonder if they have two prices for people. In this trip to the Blue Nile we ordered the same combo but added the chicken. It consisted of one small drumstick and a hard boiled egg in some dark sauce. Maybe we got more bread... More

The food was fantastic, and the cook gave us advise on what to order. Although the restaurant is small, approx 8 tables, and the decor so so, if you want authentic Ethiopian food, this is the place to go.

The place had very few customers and has about 8 tables total. Most of the people that came and went while I was there appeared to be regulars. Split the combination plate between two people and it was enough for a light dinner. I noticed the mango juice was $13 on the menu, compared to $5 for a domestic beer,... More

We had an excellent vegetarian combo with extra chicken and beef tib dishes. The portions were very good and was spiced perfectly. Our waitress was friendly and although the decor was very sparse, the dining experience was wonderful. We would definitely go back. New location at 107 ave and 110 Street.

Just went for supper at the Blue Nile this last week. Great food and atmosphere! It can be difficult to find great Ethiopian cuisine - but you certainly will taste it here! Large assortment of choices on the menu - friendly, helpful staff. We plan to go back to this new location many times on our trips to Edmonton!

So, don't judge a book by its cover with the Blue Nile. It may look a bit like a crack house, and it is located in a bit of the dodgy part of downtown Edmonton, but it serves up some of the tastiest Ethiopian cuisine. Most of the dishes are served on a mesob (woven tray) on a base of... More
