Situated in London's Westbourne Park, just a five minute meander from the local tube stop, Mosob offers visitors a unique opportunity to experience the flavours and atmosphere of Eritrea. Family run, Mosob is warm and welcoming, with charming service really embracing the family-centric traditions of Eritrea and inviting guests to relax and unwind while being treated to the kitchen's vibrant cuisine. Influenced by geographic and historic links to Arabia, Ethiopia, the Sudan and Italy, Eritrean cuisine is uniquely distinctive with a strong variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes, individual spice blends and specialty injera bread used throughout, providing guests with flavours and eating styles they're unlikely to have come across before. Equally focused on tradition and history is Mosob's interior, carefully put together with colourful textiles, rough wood paneling and organic forms alongside contemporary lighting and furniture for comfort and style. Whether an intimate romantic meal, business lunch or dinner and drinks with friends, Mosob offers the food, atmosphere and service to ensure a night to remember.

Exciting, tasty food with great staff!

This was my first time trying Eritrean cuisine. We went as a family for my brother's birthday dinner. The restaurant is not huge, so book in advance if you are going on weekends as it gets busy! Décor is simple but charming, with Eritrean pictures and items everywhere. The food itself is amazing; very well seasoned and spiced, top quality... More

My girlfriend and I were looking for good Eritrean food in London. Mosob was at the top of review lists we have managed to google out. Indeed - food is very good, you have choice of vege, chicken lamb and beef - plus there is of course this delicious (!) Eritrean pancake you grab your food with. You eat with... More

Our visit was very spontaneous, but we ended up staying for over three hours! The food was delicious and the people were very nice! The owner was serving us himself and his super sweet three year old daughter was with him and explaining to us what to do! We felt very comfortable and stayed way longer than we wanted to,... More

I went here with my wife after hearing good things about an Eritrean restaurant on the Harrow road. Just the nicest place: great service, so relaxed and friendly. Good value and excellent home cooking. We will def come again. Worth a trip to the Harrow road for!

We'd never tried Eritrean food before and we really enjoyed it. We went sunday lunchtime (the restaurant only opens at 3pm). There are chicken, lamb and beef dishes to chose from and lots of vegetarian dishes, so this would be a good place for vegetarians. The idea is that you share the food and eat with your hands with the... More

Mosob is a true gem. The food is superb and the staff are even better. Loved the sharing platters - between 4 we ordered a veggie sharing platter for 2, and a chicken and beef sharing platter for 2. I recommend this as a way to try the maximum amour of flavours. Even though we had Very generous portions of... More

We visited here with few friends and we had a great time: food was amazing and really a new experience for us. We had our own bottle of wine and the staff were friendly enough to let us have our own wine. We had a fantastic time in this fine restaurant.
