Be Adventurous – Excellent African cuisine, at an extremely affordable price. Truly one of the best African restaurants which I've visisted. Beverage refills can take a bit of time, but one hardly notices that. The servers/owners are very friendly. Also, if you're new to Ethiopian/African, I suggest trying the lunch buffet first, so you can be exposed to several kinds of dishes.

Best Ethiopian this side of Addis Ababa – We are very fond of west African cuisine and through the years have sampled resaurants from coast to coast ( even 'Blue Nile' in Detroit ), and NO ONE does it like they do!! The owners are very gracious, the food is heavenly. The only criticism we might have is the frequency of visits by the server. One might wait until the end of dinner to get a beverage refilled, but this is fairly rare. Two people can order more that they should eat for < $20. A bargain at twice the price. Enjoy!!

A charming space bedecked with African art and a polite host watching over his culinary flock. – The Food
Haven't had Ethiopian? No worries. This stuff is so mild and tasty, even your picky friends will be just fine. Go for lunch or brunch and try everything. Have the gomen (collard greens and potatoes), kik alicha (yellow split peas), and especially the key wat, a spicy beef stew that will remind you that you're alive. Rice pudding is a sweet and serene dessert, especially when you've made a few trips to the buffet.

The Scene
Go Bucks! Perched just north of campus in the same strip as many Indian, African, Middle Eastern and Korean places, the Blue Nile is filled with all kinds of people, especially white, liberal types wearing beads and flowy clothes. The servers are kind.

Fun, delicious, exotic – This is my favorite restaurant in Columbus. This is the place I take all of my out-of-town guests for a truly "big city" experience. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is fun and exotic. I'm a huge fan of Ethiopian food, and the Blue Nile does not disappoint in any way.

Don't miss out on this place!!! – Dining here was a very unique - and wonderful - experience. I can't say enough good things about the food. Thanks to the combination platter, we were able to sample all the vegetarian items on the menu. Everything was excellent but the shiro and the gomen were especially good. The service was wonderful - we were welcomed by the owner as soon as we walked in the door and the server was very attentive. We will definitely make the 1-1/2 hour trip to eat here again.
