We had been looking forward to our visit to experience the Afro Caribbean fare for some time. On entry, we were informed that some building works were being carried out as the management were opening up the floor space a bit more. However, this did not distract from the overall experience. the staff are attentive and although there was a... More

Decided to go somewhere different for my birthday meal last night (2nd Aug 14) and we are so pleased we did. Firstly, the lovely friendly and warm welcome from the waitress was a very pleasant start to the evening. When our starters arrived, we were surprised at the generous portion, I had the Chickpea Doubles, and thoroughly recommend, it was... More

My partner and I had a delicious lunch at Embe last Friday; we were both thoroughly looking forward to the meal and most certainly were not disappointed, so much so that we have re-booked for an evening meal this week. We shared the mutton curry and tilapia fish curry - both tasty and beautifully tender. Nick is a truly good... More

Just had dinner there tonight, and it was brilliant as usual. Even my elderly mother loved the lovely prawn curry she had. The curried mutton was succulent and beautifully spiced. I gad jambalaya which was delicious as ever. My young niece cleared her plate of jerked chicken, and loved every morsel. This is by far the best restaurant in Peterborough... More

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.

Been to Embe twice in the last few months. First time was a Thursday buffet night. I very much enjoyed trying a little of all of the different dishes. The fish stew was delicious, as was the mutton curry. In fact everything I tried had loads of taste - I would recommend trying the Thursday night to have a taste... More
