Ravenous late one evening and looking for a local balti house I happened upon the Blue Nile. Dining on my own, the staff were really friendly and introduced me to their amazing food served on a sour dough pancake. Too much for one really but...More

As a vegan it can be difficult to dine out in Birmingham, but whilst in Blue Nile you need not fear, staff are very knowledgeable and are more than willing to point out what's vegan on the menu. We shared a mix of everything on...More

The Blue Nile special for two is a sharing platter of ten different dishes that feeds at least three! Amazing value at £23. The ten dishes are arranged on a large platter of a pancake-like bread. You eat with your fingers, mopping up the dishes...More

A leisurely lunch with my friend sampling the shared platter. This was a bit like the African version of tapas or mezze I guess, which we willingly scooped up with the light bread / pancake rolls provided. The portions were very generous and varied but...More

Actually, It is an addiction indeed. Quite and friendly atmosphere, but the strong point is the food! Forget your experience with Indian or Thai, here you can enjoy new flavors. A true revelation. Scrumptious beef and lamb, and amazing lentils, drinking tej, an amazing honey...More
