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.

Very tasty good. Wonderful presentation. The spices are perfect. It was a finger licking experience. The best Ethiopian food. I will eat more Ethiopian from now on and will make sure to visit Zeret again when i come back to UK. I told all my friends to pass by when they travel.
The owner was present in the restaurant and she personally took the order. Very nice lady with amazing cooking skills.

Good Ethiopian food in Camberwell. Particularly good injera. The special for two was very good value, but we must try more dishes next time (I'm keen to try the kitfo and gomen)! Very friendly service and a choice of Ethiopian beers as well as wine. We will be back!

My fourth visit in 3 years and I was delighted that Zeret is as maintaining the standards I experienced on my first visit . Always a good sign that restaurant off the main drag is full on a Sunday evening. Charming staff, - all still there - another good sign - great service and I highly recommend the sharing mains courses. Keep up the good work Zeret! A wonderfully different dining experience.

I've never had a bad meal here. The food is delicious, and the quantities are absolutely huge! They're such kind hosts and are always willing to box up anything you can't finish! It's a neighbourhood gem this place.

Excellent food and service. I have had this restaurant recommended to me by several people and I was not disappointed. My partner is gluten intolerant, but that was not an issue as they cater to people with allergies and dietary requirements. The staff was very friendly and attentive throughout our meal. It was our first experience with Ethiopian cuisine so we asked the staff for recommendations. The Ethiopian honey wine was summery and light, perfect with our meal. The meal had a kick to it, but it was not too spicy. We ordered a shared platter for two, with vegetable and meat dishes. It was the perfect combo. This is our new favourite place in London and we will definitely be back.

Tasty - and plentiful! - Ethiopian food. Don't be put off by the exterior appearance of the restaurant: it's well worth a visit. If - like me - you're unfamiliar with Ethiopian cuisine, the friendly staff are more than happy to explain the menu and suggest dishes you might like.

Would never guess from the street how amazing this place is on the inside! We had the vegan plate to share. Was a bit thrown when she said no forks but it was brilliant to eat the food using the bread. Great service.. excellent value. Got a bit noisy when a large group came in later but it was Saturday night. Loved it.

This was AMAZING! I I love Ethiopian food and was not disappointed. Great taste and decent prices. They had kind of like a meal deal for 1 person, with either a veggie/vegan or chicken/lamb option for reasonable price (less than £15). The portion sizes were good, and the service was excellent - fast, super friendly and welcoming. Will come again.

Delicious food with great sharing platters, the meat sharing platter for two and the vegan platter for one are my favourites! Do try the Ethiopian honey wine, delicious. The service was great, staff were quick, attentive and friendly even though the restaurant was completely packed on a Friday night. Also, it’s great value for money. No complaints at all and would go back again!

An absolute gem and one that we’ll be returning to. Incredibly flavoursome food. We had the Zeret Special sharing platter, which was a great introduction to the dishes and plenty(!) of food for two. All washed down with a couple of Ethiopian beers and a bottle of the honey wine.

Great food, always buzzy and the serving team really work to be friendly and engaging. It can be noisy as lots of hard surfaces and they burn some incense which might put some people off, but by the end of the evening this creates a unique and memorable atmosphere to the place.
