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.

Best Ethiopian food in London. The lamb and chicken combo offers a variety of items, all of which are delicious. I come here every time I visit London.

We've been to Zeret multiple times and will continue to go - the staff, the food, the overall vibe of the restaurant is so warm and enjoyable. Personal favourite in London when it comes to Ethiopian food

Excellent traditional, Ethiopian food! Service was very attentive and friendly. Lots of diners (even on a Thursday night!) in a relatively small restaurant meant that noise levels were high, making conversation quite difficult. One small and delightful surprise was the coffee at the end of the meal, which was brought to us in the traditional, Ethiopian way - delicious! Overall excellent value!

Beautiful food & service, celebrating a birthday and we all enjoyed thoroughly. A lot of silence when the food arrived, as we were all busy stuffing our faces!

We are not regulars here but have visited several times, always choosing the house "special for two", currently £23.99. This comes as a large circular plate with a variety of meat dishes (chicken, lamb and beef) plus vegetables, all on the traditional Injera bread. The portion sizes are excellent and the whole is very tasty. Service was friendly and welcoming.

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.
