I love Embe! Nic and the team are awesome. The food is always tremendous and the curried mutton is the best I have ever had. This is one of the truly unique places to eat in Peterborough. Taste with personality, that's Embe.

An imaginative and well thought out menu offering exciting food at bargain prices. Relaxed atmosphere with a Caribbean vibe and décor to match. Not our first visit and it definitely won't be our last. Cheers!

Some dishes looked and tasted excellent and others were either tiny portions or the meat was inedibly tough. It's a... More

As a small, family business we try to build upon constructive criticism. Every so often a review occurs that is thoroughly negative, with no detail, and is completely inaccurate. This is one of those reviews - all of our waiting staff are men and have been since September, just to illustrate the inaccuracy here. Please read further reviews to gain... More
