About
Embe is an Afro-Caribbean restaurant created by Nick Rutta, a noted and established chef who has been cooking this style of cuisine for over 16 consecutive years. With his own special sauces and a combination of African and Caribbean ingredients, Nick has formulated his very own dishes and drawn inspiration from his own background as well as other parts of Africa and the Caribbean. The name Embe is the Swahili word for mango, a versatile fruit that often features within much of his cooking. You will find that Embe as a whole embodies soul food and soul music, particularly featuring the popular genres of reggae and jazz. But great food and great music demand the accompaniment of delicious drinks,

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Delicious food and a lovely atmosphere! I'm vegetarian and there were lots of things to choose from. The food was flavourful and a little spicy, and they can adjust if necessary

We had a birthday meal out with friends and we know that the food is always really good, it did not disappoint everyone in our party enjoyed their food. Freshly cooked and full of flavour, the food comes at a relaxed pace but we never...mind as the drinks were flowing and the staff are always friendly.More

Delicious food every time we visit. There has never been a dish we haven’t enjoyed. Atmosphere is lively and fun. Food is a bit of a wait sometimes but if you’re out to socialise like we are then you don’t mind waiting. The staff are...great , especially the waitress MaisieMore

Really lovely place with great atmosphere to match. The staff were amazing. Ordered mango chicken and my partner ordered jerk salmon, both tasted nice. The chef shared some Jamaican style salsa to taste which added cherry on the cake.

Enjoyed a splendid night out with 8 friends and we were very impressed by the standard of food and hospitality. My Kukupaka Tanzanian dish was some of the best chicken I have tasted for sometime. Well done guys

Disappointed , drinks expensive but seemed to be very weak like diluted spirits. The Pina colada was awful. Good portion very small .

I moved to the area in July and tried this today and it’s safe to say it’s the best meal I’ve had since I’ve moved here. And easily the best Caribbean food I’ve had. Will definitely be coming here regularly. And the guy the works...there is really nice too. Amazing place , we had the jerk chicken with rice meal and my son and the jerk chicken burger. Both lovely. couldn’t recommend enoughMore
