Blue Nile

Ethiopian Cuisine


Blue Nile is an Ethiopian Restaraunt on Allen St, just off Courtenay Place. Blue Nile started out at the Newtown Market on Saturdays, but people couldn't get enough of the unique flavours of Ethiopian food and the special bread Injera - so now you can try out the food any day of the week. We're also fully licensed for you to enjoy a beer or wine with your meal.

Blue Nile was opened so that people can have a place to gather with friends and share traditional Ethiopian food. Many of the dishes are combination platters that allow you to share and try out a range of different dishes - with options for meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans.

If you feel like trying something new and delicious, head down to 22 Allen St.

  • Ethiopian Bread (Injera) - Injera is a traditional spongy flat bread on which the dishes are served. It is used both as a plate and a to scoop the food.
  • Fully licensed - Enjoy a drink with your meal, or BYO (corkage fee applies)
  • Sharing Platters - Great for trying a range of different dishes and sharing with friends and family. Available as both meat and vegan options.
