Nyala African Restaurant

Welcome to Nyala African Restaurant

A stalwart of Fitzroy for the past 16 years, Nyala African Restaurant prepares a range of African tastes, specialising in Ethiopian dishes.


Cauliflower won't be the same again once you've tried abeba goman (it's steamed, soaked in egg and deep fried).Kenya is represented with a kuku na nazi dish of chicken and coconut curry, as is Tanzania with futari, a mixed vegie dish cooked with spices, coconut milk and injera.


Desserts include an East African favourite - banana, brown sugar, cream cheese and cinnamon are lightly baked. An Ethiopian coffee or mint tea should complete the experience.
