I visited this restaurant on my own recently and because they were expecting a few bookings that night, I was limited to one hour dining time. The food I had was delicious and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food/drink was also very well priced so I am happy to give this restaurant 4 stars!

Price, food and service are perfect!! If you want to have a different dinner you will love it. Everything is served in a "tajin" with delicious meat, sauces and vegetables which are accompanied with the typical bread from Etiopia.

I did not try etiopian food before coming here. I went 2 times and both of the times I loved it! The food is amazing (both main dishes - in particular I liked a lot the vegeterian dish - and the starter) and the people are nice. Absolutely advisable to come over here!

My and my girlfriend visited this place for dinner on a Tuesday and we were amazed how busy it was! Try to make a reservation on peak days. Overall, the service was pretty good and the experience was authentic. However, we felt that the food was not the best Ethiopian food we have had. We are normally big fans of... More

The food is just amazing. The portions are massive. Thhe service very polite. As it is ethiopean, everybody eats with hands, what is quite a nice experience in my opinion. You always have to reserve, even during the week. And you need time before and during your meat.

Really recommend visiting Blue Nile - one of the best places to eat in Munich for a reasonable price. Interesting selection of various Ethiopian foods, and South-African wines. Usually quite full: so recommend calling and booking in advance, to avoid waiting in line to get seated (which does usually go quite quickly). Recommend taking the tasting menus, really interesting and... More

If you're new to ethiopian food, it's good. But if you're tastebuds are experienced, it's not really the best, I was rather disappointed - ESPECIALLY as it was one of the most expensive ethiopian meals I ever had. But I guess, welcome to munich. Service was ok/nice.

If you haven't been here yet, I recommend you give it a go - you will be pleasantly surprised. Very yummy food, large portions (you've been warned!), and friendly and attentive service. Give the Ethiopian tea and coffee a try, and also try the "hirse" dessert if you still have space left after the main dish ;)

Thank Dyien
