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.

A warm and friendly family-run restaurant serving authentic, vibrant Eritrean cuisine. The relaxed authentic decor with original art and artifacts beautifully reflects the country's culture. Try the vegetarian option which is delicious. If you're feeling adventurous try the raw beef and if you want me, I'll be in the corner hogging a plate of it to myself. DELICIOUS!!

We went for dinner here and although it was a little out of the way it was well worth it! The food was fabulous, really tasty and not too expensive and a good sized portion too!. The place has a really nice atmosphere, really livley and it was lovely to experience something so different. We will differently be going back!

We've been to this restaurant countless times and never tire of going back. The owners are really friendly and welcoming and the food always tastes good. Never had a bad experience in 5 years of going. Miss it now we live in the north. A few of our local Harrogate eateries could learn some things about customer service from here.

Don't miss the spinach and cottage cheese. The injera bread is a super tasty type of pancake bread I've never had before. As vegetarians, we just discovered ourselves a new favorite. The service was really good and the food absolutely amazing!!!

Eritrean cuisine was never known to me until I stumbled upon this nice restaurant close to my neighborhood. What a pleasant surprise it was, starting from the service (where restaurant's owner kept us busy with jokes and quizzes that added value to the time we spent there) ending with a very different style of food and traditional eating (with hands)....

Had not tried this cuisine before and found the food very interesting! Service was impeccable! The guy that was serving us( one of the owners) was very friendly and helped us to choose! Also good value for money! What more can you ask for? Will definitely go back!

You can smell and experience great dishes, served in a generous portions that both you and the chef know that you will not be able to finish...but you have at least to try! If you love good food, you will go away full and satisfied and with the regret that you was not able to finish all that amazing stuff... More

We had a wonderful time at Mosob. The staff were so friendly and welcoming and took the time to explain the menu and make recommendations. The food was great, simple but with interesting flavours and we loved the injeera. We are both veggie and there was loads of choice for us (and vegans too). We learnt about a cuisine and... More
