A great experience throughout! Great food, the owner is lovely and will help you choose. Don't go if you are in a rush. This is a dinner experience and the owner is the waitress and the cook so it might take a while Amazing food

My family have been coming back to this restaurant for over 15 years and are never disappointed. The food is always delicious and full flavoured, the meat is succulent and well prepared (no fatty bits) My son is a vegetarian and the mixed vegetables are varied and also delicious. We are always greeted with a smile from the lovely Getanesh.... More

My friends and I wanted to taste some Ethiopian food. None of us had every tried it before. We shared different platters and the waitress recommended the number of injeras (Ethiopian flatbread) we needed. It is a small place, so you'd better book. We went for a Saturday night dinner and it was fully booked. Its cook and owner puts... More

This is easily the best Ethiopian restaurant in London, made all the more so by the delightful owner Getenesh. The restaurant is on a queued street off of Caledonia Rd. We made reservations for 7 people and Getenesh was very easy to communicate with for this. Would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

Excellent and authentic food, with a wide range of options for vegetarians and meat eaters alike - and great value too! The owner is lovely, and somehow manages to take orders, prepare the food, serve it and even explain the dishes to you all at once. Will definitely be returning soon - a perfect venue for celebrations or for a... More

Dropped into Kokeb having never tried Ethiopian food before, the restaurant was quiet but this was likely due to it being only about 4pm and the weather was wet and windy, we were met by a lovely lady who we later found out was the restaurant owner/chef & waitress having opened the restaurant some 18 years ago and built up...

We went to this place for a dinner. It was my first ever experience with Ethiopian food, loved everything there. We ordered some food and advice from the owner/chef was given that it may be too much and she suggested smaller order, she was spot on. Delicious vegetarian/ meat options/ lovely Ethiopian beer. Service was excellent. Will definitely recommend for... More

I'd been told about this place by many people and came with a friend one evening. It's a short walk from Caledonian Road tube and relatively easy to find along a quiet residential street. The decor is spartan, although it has nice touches of Ethiopia all around, which was interesting. The proprietress was extremely friendly and busy throughout the evening.... More

Amazing service, and such such delicious food. Also, make sure to ask for Ethiopian coffee at the end of your meal - absolutely mouth watering.

I love coming to Kokeb. I've been there at least 5 times. The owner who is also the chef and the waitress brings a great feel to the place. She remembers her guests and is aleays happy to answer questions about the food. When you get there your mind and body slows down. You can forget all the busy London... More
