Firstly, the Zeret team are so lovely, really welcoming & helpful for an Ethiopian food novice. The food is super tasty, sharing dishes served on a big sour bread plate. And make sure you order the coffee.... wow!

This is a lovely authentic restaurant - the staff are friendly, the food is delicious and you get plenty of it. Recommend the mixed platters so you can taste lits of different dishes. Good for sharing with friends/family and excellent value. Be prepared to eat with your fingers!

Description
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.
