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.

Very special restaurant - delicious food, brilliant service, highly recommended!

The staff are just incredibly friendly here and make you feel at ease and very welcome. Be sure to brush up on your geography trivia beforehand as the manager loves to quiz people. I've been eating here for years and it is consistently friendly and delicious and a great value. It can get a bit loud on Friday or Saturday... More

We went to Mosob with a group of 6 friends, and were hosted in a quieter room behind the main one. The decoration is simple but nice. The waiter (I believe daughter of the owner?) is very friendly and recommended portions and dishes, as we were a bit lost... everything was delicious and the portions were generous to share. Total...

This is a great place to go with a group. Friendly staff and very filling. Stay, lounge around and eat a lot and stay for their coffee ceremony at the end. You won't be hungry for about 24 hours after eating here.

We went for dinner and had not had Eritrean food previously but wanted to try. Absolutely delicious! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and there was a lovely atmosphere. Really enjoyed getting 'stuck in' and using our fingers. We chose one of the set menus and each dish was rich and flavoursome. Be aware! The injera is very filling!!... More

This place is well worth a visit, great selection of dishes, also for vegetarians. Super tasty injeras, great stews, freshly brewed mint tea and authentic Kenyan beer - Tusker. The decor is simple with African touches, staff is very kind. If you fancy a change from Indian and Italian food this is definitely a place to go to.

Dined here on Saturday. The food was ok, nothing special, not enough of the good stuff and too much soggy bread. Service was really nice. Wine was cheap, you got what you paid for. For the price. Not worth it. Wouldn’t return.

A delicious meal and very authentic food. We shared the Massawa set menu for 2 people which was a good range of food. The portion was quite big so could have been shared between 3. The room at the back is more traditional and atmospheric, the main restaurant area is a bit more sterile but still good. The staff were... More

We dinned here not knowing what to expect and were extremely surprised - from the warm welcome we received to the pleasant goodbyes, please come again we were very impressed. We never felt rushed but the service was always there. We cannot speak too highly of this restaurant and will definitely be returning.

This is a very unassuming and smallish place and NOT in the CITY. But worth going out of your way for. Been there about 4-5 times. The first time we went- For a change the owner was delighted to hear that we were vegetarians! :D Though my friends told me the non-vegetarian food is good too. He then asked if... More
