Description: 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.

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.

We went as a couple hoping for some interesting vegetarian food. We made the right choice going to Mosob! The menu was great and very informative, the friendly waiters guided us even further and the food was incredible! Full of flavour, hearty and filling without feeling too weighty. As an added bonus, we learned a lot about Eritrean culture from... More

if it wasn't 100% for the food, it was for the unique customer service received. The food attendant (family owner's daughter) was amazing, explaining all about the eriterian cuisine and culture. Some of the items on the plate were super delicious whilst other bland. Did not enjoy too much their traditional bread, pancake style.. Coffee superb

I went to Mosob with 15 friends for my birthday. I'd never been before, or had Eritrean food, but a friend recommended it. This restaurant is superb, the food was incredibly tasty - large pancake-like flatbread with a mezze of assorted dishes. It's also really sociable as you share from one plate and eat with your fingers. The staff were... More

Sharing us the way forward at Mosab. The portions are huge and eating with your hands is a fun novelty. The staff are very friendly, the beer and wine selection is great. Really can't say enough good things. First choice if you're looking for something different to do.

We wanted to try something different. A 18£ taxi from Piccadilly Circus, make a reservation first. Here you eat with your bare hands. Very tasty food and nice service, try it!
