We chose the "Zeret Surprise" for dinner - a wonderful combination of different meats and salads/ vegetables. Wow - the spices and flavors were wonderful. They also have a very good range of beers and wines - Rhone Rose goes very well with this dish....More

I travel to Ethiopia frequently, and this restaurant accurately represents the combination of laid back service and delicious food that is common throughout the country. Don't do yourself an injera-ustice, and visit when you can!

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.
