For something a little different, this intimate locale boasts an exotic decor and warm ambiance as well as traditional Ethiopian cuisine. The à la carte menu ranges from CAD4-12 for a variety of regional plates made from chicken or lamb, as well as vegetarian platters. Settle down and eat from an inerja, or naan bread-type pancake which ostensibly eliminates the need for utensils. It's a perfect place for large groups, as diners can sample as many of the exotic dishes as possible.
The decor is inviting, and the food is heart-warming! Service has really improved since the last time we visited - the waiters offered advice, and food came very quickly. You won't go without water at this place, either, they come often to refill your glass.
last night was my first time trying ethiopian food,and to great success!it was delicious spicy flavourful and tongue tantalizing! The wat and vegetable dishes were carefully prepared & just absolutely delicious. thumbs up!
We had a coupon from deal find and tried Nil Bleu for the first time.
The service was polite, friendly slightly slow. The food was very interesting
tasty and different from your average restaurant, overall I wood definitely go
back. The one very odd and uncomfortable thing is that the bathroom stalls
in the ladies and men washrooms is made with glass walls and door that is
foggy. When someone is in one you can see their shadow and every movement
down to the wipe and flush. Kind of intrusive and disrespectful. This is not a feature
I would recommend other restaurants to follow :(
Myself and a friend decided to try a new restaurant, and fell upon Nil Bleu in her discount restaurant booklet-you know, the ones where you get 25% off or 10$ off the meal-and you get to discover something new.
Well, the food was good-however, that was all ruined when the bill came, and we presented our coupon. We were flatly told that it would not be accepted when the bill was handwritten and that we should have presented our coupon when we had first arrived. Well, as my friend pointed out to them-we would have not eaten there had it not been for the coupon, and the booklet it came in-and that they could simply modify the bill, give us out discount and have happy clients. They then left us to wait for about 15 minutes-wondering if a waiter would come to pick up the Visa. I finally managed to flag a waiter down who brought my card to the counter. Another man came and lectured us about how we should have presented the coupon in advance, and that we would know for another time. My friend advised them there would not be another time. I left there without leaving any tip. Not reccommended.
I have been to the nil bleu many many times but tonight I went there with my husband after getting what we thought was a good deal on living social deal website
We made reservation both on the phone and online to make sure they wouldn't give our table to somebody else like they did once before...we arrived there waited in the front for 10 minutes then waited some more at the bar then a finnnnnnnally a waitress came and sat us down. We waited another15 minutes before she came back to take our order. We ordered our food and wine then when we finished eaTing I took the coupon out of my purse and at that point the waitress came back in the blink of an eye telling me that they will not honor that coupon because they were losing money due to the deal offered on ten web they said we needed to pay the full bill despite having already paid for a 30$ value online . Within 5 minutes a douzen other customers were arguing with the waitress and the manager about that matter. We gave them the coupon and a tip then we left but they made most of the other customers pay the full price...everybody was mad and I am very disappointed on how they choose to deal with the customers since they posted that deal online. Be careful when you go there the food is good but that's about it...
I don't care too much about the service at a restaurant, as long as the food's good. But the service at this place was so bad last time I went that it completely ruined the experience. Ethiopian food is served without utensils, and is picked up with flat bread instead. Unfortunately, on my last visit, they brought our large table only two small plates of bread. After we repeatedly asked for more, they promised to bring more, but only brought three pieces after 20 minutes! This is comparable to a waiter refusing to bring you cutlery at another restaurant. We weren't even able to finish our food, and eventually gave up and left. And then they had the gall to lecture us about not tipping! Otherwise, the food is quite good but not spectacular, and the atmosphere is a little silly. Prices are pretty high. I'd go elsewhere.
If you want to be treated rudely, be made to wait 30 minutes for a table you had reservations for, pay $15 for blended chickpeas and lentils and be served up vegetarian and meat dishes on the same plate only to be told it is an unresolvable issue then go here.
