The food was wonderful, presented well and worth the money paid for it. Service came with a smile, and the drinks the waiter suggested to have with the meals were perfect choices. One gripe would be the time taken for the coffee course - we were told afterwards it can take a while, but the 45 minute+ plus wait meant a couple of our party had to leave before it arrived. Again, however, it was worth the wait.


I have been to many Ethiopian and Eriterian restaurants in America and also in England.To be true, I really like the Injera that Adulis makes also, the other food that is topped on it and, I have to say I have never tasted Injera made that delicious!The next time I plan to go out to eat, it's going to be Adulis!


A group of us booked a table for four last week and ended up having one of the greatest eating experiences of our lives. I have been to Eritrean and Ethiopian restaurants before and am fairly familiar with the cuisine but my three friends have never tasted the food. From the moment we arrived to the time we left, we had fun. Throughout our meal, the manager, who also happened to be the sister of the owner, was very attentive and kept on revisiting our table. Having explained in detail how the traditional honey wine is made, she offered to give us free tasters. Having tasted it, we ended up demolishing two whole bottles while my Finnish friend ended up buying two more bottles to take back home. When we finished our meal, the owner was kind enough to give us a tour of the restaurant including the newly refurbished basement area which is decorated with amazing murals. Apparently, they hold concerts of Jazz and World Music there twice a month. The food was great and the service was second to and the night, aided with loads of honey wine, was sweet. My three friends are now proper converts. Adulis, until next time then!

This was a surprise booking for my brother in-law who was up for any celebration after securing a dream job. Having visited the restaurant a couple of times before, I thought this would be a good way to celebrate with a touch of adventure for the in-laws as well as a couple of other friends. Adulis didn't disappoint - the ambience, the food and the superb wine list – it was an amazing experience for my ‘guests’. They thoroughly enjoyed the visit and they might have just become converts now :)
