excellent food - Edit

We ate here last night. The food was excellent but I’m not absolutely convinced that there was much understanding of the difference between veggie and vegan. There is a vegetarian menu page (which has a fish dish on), and they said it was all vegan.

Having said that, we ordered a veggie ‘sharing dish’ and specified no dairy, no cheese, and have no reason to think we got any.

It was good filling food and cheap- £18 total and we were both stuffed.

Pros: good price

Cons: vegan not clearly differentiated from veggie, mid feb the restaurant was cold!

Best Ethiopian - Edit

I've eaten at several ethiopian restaurants around in country and I've been eating at the blue nile for many years now and i think it's consistently been the best I've tried. There is a good selection of dishes and the injera is the best. The dishes are well cooked and brilliantly flavored.

While not marked, most of the dishes on the vegetarian page are vegan, just ask the staff are friendly and helpful.

Can't recommend this place enough.

Probably my favourite Birmingham restaurant - Edit

If you've never tried Ethiopean food then don't wait any longer. It is amazingly flavoursome - I've bought a berbere spice mix to use at home. The injera bread is also delicious. Tip - don't fill up on the extra bread as you will want to eat the bread that makes up the base plate too, which all the sauces have soaked into.

Pros: Delicious, Great for a mixed veg/non-veg group, Very affordable

Cons: You will be very full at the end
