The Embe restaurant closed recently. I understand that there is no chance of it re-opening. Passed it yesterday and it looks empty. Obviously can't rate it as it no longer exists

Sadly an email has come out from them stating that after 5 years they have closed the business. Such a shame, I wish Nick and his team all the best for their future endeavours, and thank them for some lovely meals and memories.

We had a lovely meal here in April for my brother’s birthday, the food was excellent & the staff very friendly & efficient. The chef came out at the end of our dinner to say that he hoped we had enjoyed it – we had! The décor is quite quirky too & it has a real Caribbean vibe going on,... More

We had a fantastic meal here, getting to try some really wonderful dishes. The service was excellent and an extra nice touch was the chat we had with the chef, showing genuine interest in the customer experience.

Sunday lunch is the perfect time to be there!! When ordering two starters and two mains there is also a decent bottle of South African Cab-Sauv-Shiraz or an equivalent white included!!!!!!! Now that's outrageously good value. With starters of Dagaa (breaded whitebait with homemade hot sauce) , a mutton curry to die for, a superbly spicy Jambalaya with all the... More

Great service, great food, great atmosphere. Chef came out and said hello when we arrived which was a nice touch, and his food was absolutely spot on. The service was great, as was the atmosphere. Thank you!

After a drink in the garden, reading the menu, we moved into the restaurant. Friendly staff, tasty food and a very reasonable bill. We saved enough room for the mango crumble and custard. We will be going back.

My other half and I happened across this restaurant while house hunting in the area: if we had any concerns about Peterborough either being friendly or having good, honest Caribbean cuisine, they were quickly put to rest by the reception we received and the Curried Mutton we were served. Other highlights include the plantain starter with hot sauce, jerk chicken... More
