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.

Friendly service, flavourful, well spiced food and reasonable prices. 3 of us had a set meal for two plus an extra main and belts were quite snug after dinner!

I cannot rate Mosob highly enough for quality of food and warmth of service. I'm tempted to call it the best restaurant in London. Do yourself a favour: go to Mosob and take your dearest family and friends with you. 5+ stars.

Amazing flavours, great service and a wonderful experience. Can't wait to come back... The owners are extremely hospitable and share their knowledge of the country with such passion. They give you a feel of what it's like as a guest in their home.

We picked up this restaurant according to its location as we were staying in Bayswater area and looking for a good Ethiopian food. The place itself is not big and people are very welcoming but we came to know that its an Eritrean restaurant after being seated. Anyway Food is nice and no huge difference from Ethiopian cuisine, but it... More

Had gone with my family. Ambiance was great. The host kept us laughing with jokes and quizzes about countries and cities. The Food was as expected. The injera was a little too sour though. Remember eating once in Washington and don't remember it being so sour. Rest everything was more than good esp. the ghee doused paprika covered injera (Cant... More

I can't say enough positive things about our visit to Mosob. My husband and I finished up 5 days in London and the last night, I wanted to do something a little different. My husband had never eaten Ethiopian food and I read really great reviews of the Eritrean cuisine at Mosob. We booked a table for a Sunday night... More

If you want to experience great food combined with a great staff (the owner should offer a graduate class on how to provide great service), and want Eritrean food, find this place and enjoy the evening.

While walking from the tube station to Mosob you are not quite sure what to expect. Even from the outside the building is somewhat underwhelming. However the food is fantastic and eating with you hands is a very different experience for many. The service is charming and very happy to give you books to look at on Eritrea or have... More
