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.

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.

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!
