Good food, not great service

Posted on 10 / 20 / 2014

We got the lunch buffet and the food was very good. I liked that of the 10 dishes on the buffet, six were vegan. My husband loves Ethiopian food and said this was some of his favorite. The only bummer was the service. We passed through town near the end of lunch time on a Saturday. Blue Nile was busy, but not packed. Our waitress never refilled our water, or really came by at all after we were seated. We had to ask someone else for our check. The table next to us ordered drinks two separate time and didn't get the until they were done eating.

Pros: good food, majority of the buffet was vegan
Cons: service, serves meat

My mom and I took my son here before Harrisonburg's winter parade and the food was amazing! Great selection and delicious hummus!

Pros: delicious, clean, friendly
Cons: meat available
