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.

The only restaurant we would bother to take a journey that, from where we live, takes 40 minutes and involves 2 buses. It it the most delicious, friendly restaurant.

First time at Zeret, so wasn't sure what to expect! However, lovely food, great wine list and very nice staff. Couldn't manage pudding as was too full.

Best value for money in the area, in a part of London that's known for cheap, quality food. If you don't get the special for two, with 6 or so stews and salad spread across a giant injera bread plate, you're doing it wrong.

Zeret kitchen was very delicious and a steal for the price. Myself and my partner had the set meal, which consists of numerous dishes served on a large sharing dish. Beneath all the food dishes is a layer of injera bread, which was very tasty, and the meal is also served with a seemingly limitless supply of extra injera bread. No cutlery is provided, but clearly this is to facilitate the authentic cultural experience of eating the dish with the injera bread.

Will definately love to visit again, the experience, value and taste was infallible. Would recommend all to try at least once.

Needs better ambience and a quieter environment (eg.nicer artwork on the walls and tables and chairs, table decorations and candles). But the food was good and the service was excellent. I would recommend this restaurant if you are into Injira and Ethiopian/Eritrean food.

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.
