Here, among upmarket shops and boutiques, the Blue Nile Restaurant is serving hungry Brummies with authentic Ethiopian food every day.

Diners are invited to sample East African delights like yesom beyayinetu, a delicious, filling lentil dish, or more familiar favourites like samosas, presented Blue Nile style!
Amazing food and excellent service! Traditional Ethiopian cuisine and the staff were happy to tell us not to order sides when we had planned to, as we already had ordered too much food. The waiter was busy but ensured the quality of service provided to us didn't drop. Will definitely be going back there!
Great food and very good value for money. Do try the platter dishes giving you the chance to try different dishes on one plate! If you like spicy food then do try. Very helpful staff who explain all before you.
It was really nice food, and a very interesting experience. There's no knives and forks so be prepared to use your hands. Food served on a 'pancake'
Food was as excellent as ever. This was our fifth visit and we continue to enjoy it. The only comment would be that the restaurant was cold.
Friendly, helpful staff. Took friends who had never had this type of food before and they thoroughly enjoyed it! Extremely tasty and good value for money.
