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.

Zeret looked after us personally and it was a very enjoyable evening. We liked the variety and presentation of the food as well as the taste. Injera are interesting. Ethiopian table mats, pictures and a colourful basket for the bill all added to our enjoyment.

This was our second visit and won't be the last. Absolutely delicious food, so fresh and flavoursome, exact same quality as our last visit. For quality of food and service, this is truly one of the very best restaurants in London. And extremely good value for money. Great ambiance, music, decor. Nothing not to like.

We have been dining at Zeret Kitchen for a number of years and love the wholesome food as well the hospitality of the owner who adds a personal dimension to the experience. You can ask for gluten free options and they are able to accommodate. We will be back again very soon!

We've been patronising Zeret for over 13 years and love visiting regularly. We take all our friends there and love the food. This time they surpassed themselves - The food was absolutely amazing. By far the best Ethiopian restaurant in London, one of our favourite haunts in the metropolis, and certainly a must-do in south London, Zeret is the Jewel of Camberwell.
