We had a lovely post-work dinner for 7. We had lots of fun sharing the delightful food. Good selection of Ethiopian beer, too

Me and my friend went for dinner at the Blue Nile and we loved it! The food was very tasty, the prices were cheap and the staff very friendly. The portions were really large but they let us take home whatever we could not finish. Definitely worth a visit!

Ive never been to Ethiopia so can't comment on the authenticity but it seemed authentic. Big place, very friendly service, and awesome food. The Misr Wot was amazing. Amongst all the trendy hipster places in the city - this is a down to earth, unassuming place with great food. Food was huge (maybe we should have shared) but a great... More

Friendly place, open late. Food was only OK. Samosa was good but the lamb dishes were bland and a bit fatty. Won't be going back
