Good Vegetarian Options
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.

Great little restaurant! We had the 2 person sharing platter which is perfectly sized for two people and has a great range of flavours. Not cutlery needed, its all eat with your hands! Food came out exceptionally quick and was great value.

By mistake the system accepted a reservation before opening time, and they very kindly invited us to sit down and apologized that the service was going to be slower as the restaurant was not open yet. Excellent food and great service.

We are so pleased we finally visited Zeret Kitchen - we live just around the corner and had heard great things, but it exceeded our expectations. The restaurant itself is lovely, it smells divine, its candlelit and has a lovely ambience. We are novices to this style of food and the staff talked us through everything, and advised us on wha to order which was spot on. The meal itself was beyond delicious - it was interesting, flavoursome, comforting. We loved it and we will be back - such good value too: £55 for dinner for 2, 2 alcoholic drinks each, a bottle of water and 12.5% service charge (We calculated and added this ourselves, the bill comes without service).

We have been meaning to try Zeret for ages but it's a long way from where we live in North London but it was great. We have tried a fair few Ethiopian and Eritrean places and I always like them but find it's hard to seperate one from the other. I thought the quality of food at Zeret was one step up. Friendly staff and nice buzzy venue too.

The best restaurant in South London! Delicious food, great for someone like me who is vegan and gluten free while also catering for those who do eat meat. Lovely staff, can't recommend enough :)

The yummiest ethiopian food ever. Be aware you will be full up the portions are amazing, the chicken is good. My sister got the rice and chicken and said the rice was a bit bland. I got the Zeret surprise which was DELICIOUS especially the chickpeas. Glass of wine was lovely! It’s very affordable, local and staff are lovely. Support local business we’d go again 100%.

First time having Ethiopian cuisine, my mum and I ventured over from north London as the reviews had been so great. We absolutely loved it and the owner is a gorgeous woman who is very happy and generous in her time, energy and she filled up our plate with extra food when we ran low! The food was absolutely delicious and will definitely be returning!!
