Description: 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.

Delicious. Friendly. Tastes authentic to me but I'm not Ethiopian. Lots of great seasoning in all the dishes I tasted. Good prices.

This was our first experience of an Ethiopian restaurant and it proved to be a very good introduction. The emphasis is very much on the food rather than the decor, but that makes it feel genuine. The welcome was pleasant and friendly and that continued in the service throughout the evening. After an Ethiopian bread starter, we all shared the Zeret Surprise, using our fingers to help ourselves to the variety of meats and vegetables on a huge platter lined with a type of spongy bread which soaked up the delicious gravy. Wines and beers are international with one or 2 Ethiopian offerings to experiment with. On a midweek evening the restaurant quickly filled up with an eclectic mix of customers. So don't arrive without a booking and you'll enjoy a memorable meal!

I have been eating Ethiopian food all my life and I was very disappointed with Zeret Kitchen. How can an Ethiopian restaurant not serve Doro Wat??? Everyone coming here for Ethiopian food is missing out on the best dish. The dishes we had were quite bland and one of them just tasted like lentils mixed with mustard which was very unpleasant. There was also a hair in the pudding we ordered. Aside from the disappointing food, the service was very pleasant and the venue had a nice atmosphere. People must not be swayed by the top reviews this restaurant is getting (as I was), as they are missing out on much better Ethiopian food.
