Fabulous meal. Even the side of spinach was super flavourful and spicy. The host was very kind. I also called ahead with some questions and the chef was very helpful. Very tasty and healthy meal with friends. We will go back!

Lovely Ethiopian food. The smell of berber took us straight back to our wonderful holiday in Ethiopia and many happy meals of injera, kitfo and shiro.

A group of three of us attending on Saturday night. We arrived just before 7 and the place was already very busy. With some guidance from the waitress, we ordered the sharing platter plus an extra dish. The food came fairly quickly and was delicious....More

Lovers of Ethiopian cuisine and adventurous foodies will appreciate this bright, clean and modern restaurant in Camberwell that prides itself on its family recipes and dedication to authentic Ethiopian traditions. Zeret itself is a name that comes from a small village in northern Ethiopia, and the menu includes mostly chicken, lamb and beef stews made with butter, garlic and ginger served on pancake-like flatbread called enjera. All the food here is delicious, and the dining room is decorated with colourful placemats, potted palms and simple white walls. Perfect for communal/sharing meals with friends and family, the Zeret Kitchen has attentive staff and a relaxed atmosphere ��� don't miss the Ethiopian style chicken cooked with green chillies, herbs and spices.
