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.

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!

Amazing food!! Can't recommend highly enough! Service was a bit slow, but it was a very busy Saturday night, so understandable - service was fast the last time we attended when it was a bit less packed.

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.

We were a group of six, some vegetarian, others not. The restaurant was able to accommodate all preferences. The staff are helpful and welcoming, and everyone in our group had wonderful evening. The food and coffee (I recommend ordering the traditional one!) are of excellent quality and value. So far the best Ethiopian restaurant in London that I have been to. Highly recommended.

A friend and I shared a veggie platter for 2. It was incredibly delicious and an enjoyable experience to eat by hand. Overall the food was fantastic. We also shared a sticky toffee and custard pudding which was top notch.

Service was a little slow but that wasn't a problem, you don't go to a place like this to get in and out. Sit back, enjoy the music, decor, food and your friend's conversation.

Drinks could be better. I will say that. They'd run out of the honey wine and there wasn't any beers on offer. Spicy tea was nice though.

Would recommend and will be taking friends again

Great place for dinner with young adult kids and their partners. Good, interesting and healthy food. Lovely service. Room too brighthly lit and could have more Ethiopian feel. I have more Ethiopian artefacts in my own home!

We didn't know what to expect as it was our first time trying Nepalese food. We were pleasantly surprised. We thought everything was great from the food, the ambience (especially lighting, which a lot of places don't think about) and the service was great too. Would highly recommend it.
