Date night, night out with the gals, bring your parents - Zeret Kitchen is perfect for any occasion really. This food is really delicious, filling and very affordable. Also, let's just all admit how much fun it is to eat with our hands, and how rarely we get to do this in London's overtly swanky restaurants. 

The staff are incredibly lovely as well, making jokes and conversation, but also not hovering too much. 

The venue itself is delightful. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside is soft and intimate, dimly light with twinkly lights (love twinkly lights). Despite it filling up quite quickly after we were seated, it wasn't noisy at all - which I'll admit is atop my list of making a bar/restaurant my least favourite place. Really fantastic place. 

The only negative is the bathroom with the door that wouldn't lock and toliet that wouldn't flush. Yeah, that made for some interesting convos in the bathroom...

On the day after I visited Zeret Kitchen it was rated #5 out of almost 18 thousand restaurants in London. I don't believe that Zeret Kitchen is actually in the 10 ten best restaurants in London but I have yet to find a bad review of it.

Zeret Kitchen is a little restaurant in Camberwell and the staff couldn't be more welcoming and friendly.

We went for a Zeret special which is a selection of different meats and lentils served on a sour pancake called an enjara. There's no cutlery so you just get stuck in with your hands.

The food is tasty and cheap and certainly makes for a different eating experience. I've heard good things about the coffee and popcorn ceremony and I didn't get a chance to try the deserts so I'll be back for both of those.

I've never tried Ethiopian food before and I didn't have a clue on what to expect or what to order. We went for the special, which was a mixture of dishes. Staff seem friendly and so laid back. Food arrived and looked impressive. Interesting flavours but a bit too salty for my taste. It has step free entrance so it is wheelchair accessible, but I didn't ask about facilities. There's quite a lot of food so probably better for dinner than a lunch. And there's also a good selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes too.
