The owner cooks everything herself, serves everyone, and has the perfect amount of customer interaction to make you feel warm and welcome and yet enjoy your meal in peace. The food was deliciously fresh and flavorful!

Tasty food, fast service and friendly hostess - what more do you need? If you are looking for authentic Ethiopian food, look no further. It's only a 5 minute walk from tube station so very conveniently located. Will be back again. Thanks Kokeb for a great night out.

It was my first time at trying Ethiopian food, and this place blew me away. Its a tiny homely place place almost entirely owned and run by a lady who prepares the food fresh after you place the order! We had a lovely time trying the different items in such an authentic set up. Will definitely be going back there... More

I have never tried Ethiopian food before, but must admit that it will not be my last.. The food was absolutely stunning and the fact that the food you get is made with love and passion you can also taste in full. Everything is cooked by the owner, who also serves you and recommends you the food she finds will... More

It's a small place, so be sure to reserve in the evening when it tends to fill up. I was there for a late lunch. Excellent food and service.

This has become one of my favourite places to eat in London. Order injera (a yeasty flat bread) and any of the dishes that catch you eye. My favourites are the chicken and egg in a spicy sauce, the red lentils and the fava beans dish. And to eat it all, just spoon the wet dishes onto the bread and... More

Unpretentious and homey - basically, it is a place you will feel very much at home! The owner is also the cook, and she will repeatedly come over to ask how you are enjoying the food and if there is anything else you need. The food is simple and really good value and the best part of it is that... More
