This restaurant was one of my favorites while I was living in WL. Every time that we went, we were treated very well by the owners. Dishes are very big, but you can always take it home! :)

We're a bit of Baba Ghanouj snobs. Got spoiled by a couple of restaurants where only the mother's were allowed to make the dish and from fresh eggplant adjusting for each eggplant. That's what Blue Nile must be doing as the Baba Ghanouj was excellent....More

We were in town for a conference at Purdue and wanted Mediterranean food, so we checked out TripAdvisor and read about Blue Nile. When we decided to check it out, we weren't sure we were in the right place since there was a hookah lounge...More
