In a very standardised world it is refreshing to come across such an authentic place. Simple, delicious food with subtle tasty and spicy flavours take you to a journey in Ethiopia. Great friendly service, plus the unusual experience of eating without cutlery. We spent a lovely evening with one of the best food we ever had.

Visited with a friend who is a vegetarian. Had mixed selection of vegetarian options - all excellent, and washed down with Ethiopian Beer - St George. The staff couldn't have been nicer. Will definitely go back. Well done!

It was a bit tricky to find (taxi with a dodgy sat-nav probably didn't help) but I had probably the nicest tibbs I've ever had here. Absolutely perfect food if you do like Ethiopian (and who doesn't!) It was lunch time so quite quiet but apparently very busy later on.

Nice discovery: real good fresh and balanced food, friendly service and nice atmosphere. I'd say not to be missed in this area of London. And order a coffee: it's just unique!

I have been to a number of other Ethiopian restaurants in London; but Zeret is in a category of its own; it is simply the best Ethiopian cuisine in town. What distinguishes Zeret from the rest is its serene atmosphere, exquisite service and scrumptious Ethiopian dishes. The veggie varieties, kitfo, dullet and quanta-tibse are second to none. I always feel... More

I went here tonight for the first time to celebrate my birthday. We were a party of 3 adults and 3 teenagers and we booked a table for 3pm. The place was almost empty when we got there but started filling up quickly after an hour. The hostess was very welcoming. I think she guessed we were new to Ethiopian... More

We went to zeret after looking at the reviews and we were not disappointed. Good food, great service, nice ambience. We were even given some extra chickpea side dish for our left over injeras that was on the house. I give a 4 and not a 5 because we found the food sour and felt we have had more flavorful... More

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.
