A friend of ours really wanted to try this place, so it was our last meal before heading back to Bristol. We didn't know what to expect but thought it was definitely worth a try. We ordered the mixed meat dish, which was really nice. It came on a big plate with the odd bread pancake thing underneath, and you... More

If you're looking for a fix of Eritrean cuisine in London, you should add Adulis to your list. The honey wine and coffee are beverages that are also highly recommended. Whenever I have been with my friends, we've ordered the sharing platters, the portions are big enough to share between 2-3 people. The food is consistently tasty, and the service... More

This is one of my favourite places to visit for great food. It has been around for ages and just keeps getting better. The food is delicious, the service is polite and helpful and the prices are competitive. I particularly love the Adulis special, the mixed vegetarian dishes and the grilled lamb in onion and garlic but to be fair,... More

I had no idea what to expect when we went there, other than eritrean food. First of all, I discovered "Mies", an eritrean honey mead, which blew my mind. I would highly recommend the dry "Mies" as a drink. The food is served in the traditional fashion, and you eat it using your hands and "injera", which is an eritrean... More

If you've never tasted Eritrean cuisine, you must! and this is a good place to start. Take a sharing platter.. the vegetarian platter is amazing, and can easily be made vegan on request. It all comes served on injera, a type of bread, and you use your hands to serve yourself. It's a totally different dining experience, in a really... More

Went here with work colleagues to introduce them to this particular East African cuisine (myself being an Eritrean) and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We will come back soon.

a great introduction to a cuisine new to all but one of us. We had the sharing plate as well as a selection of starters followed by puddings and Eritrean tea. I was able to have rice as the injera wasn't gluten free.

Love the food! Always have the vegetarian platter and it never disappoints. I go to both the Oval and Clapham Junction restaurants regularly and can't get enough! The atmosphere is great too, the place is buzzing on a weekend (Oval, can't comment on CJ as have never been on a Fri or Sat), so make sure you reserve a table.... More

It was an interesting eating experience, and there's something about the family-style sharing that I like. The food was generally pretty tasty, but I wouldn't say it excelled particularly. It was slightly over-priced in my opinion, but not outrageously so. Service was a little slow (although there was a large group of us) but very friendly. There was a nice... More
