I live this place for that sour sensation on my taste buds. Excellent service and nice ambience I love the varieties of curries and the wine list was pretty good too. Make sure you wash your hands as this is part of the experience eating with your hands. Definitely worth a visit and you may be hooked

Came here with a six other ladies to kick off my hen night. The service wasn't the best..didn't help that I couldn't really understand the waiter...luckily one of the girls is Eritrean so that worked in our favour. The food was delicious, lots of different flavours and I was impressed with their range of veg and non veg dishes. It... More

We are huge fan of ethiopian food and yesterday evening was the worst experience ever . First in the beginning maybe because i was with a 6 and 10 y/o they offer to put us in the deep back next to the sink. I declined the offer as .... erm no way i want to eat in a whole. Then... More

Decided to come here with friends after restaurant opposite was fully booked; glad we did. An authentic and interesting cuisine experience. Loved the coffee ceremony and everyone eagerly ate everything put in front of them so success! Note that you will be eating with your fingers so will have to pop to the bathroom to wash hands. If I had... More

Have passed this place for years and wondered about it but never went in. Tried it this evening. Sharing platters are tasty both meat and vegetarian options and are almost too big. Coffee at end is a fun and delicious experience. Didn't pay so can't speak as to value though I will definitely return. Staff are a little inattentive and... More

The prices are reasonable and wine selection was pretty good. It is a casual and fun evening that anyone would enjoy. The recommendation from our lovely server was to always to a... More

Never tried this type of food before and I am always willing to give things a try. The meat dish I chose was nice enough but wish I had chosen what my wife and son chose as theirs came with a sauce. You get a choice of rice or Injera which is a spongelike pancake served cold. It was very... More

I visited Adulis for my birthday after getting a taste for Eritrean food. The staff were lovely and the decor in the restaurant is to a high standard, some lovely decorations and designs. I had the 'Adulis Mies' (the honey wine) which was delicious - I'd definitely recommend trying it. The food is very well-priced, we had a platter for... More

I went here with a group of friends for my birthday and had a great time. The food was delicious (we had two sharing platters - one for the veggies and one for the meat eaters!) and we all really enjoyed it, great for sharing with a large group. The coffee ceremony was great and the staff were lovely, they... More
