My wife and I ate at Embe recently mainly as we wanted to try something different, The interior is farily colourful, a lot of orange and green, music playing and quite lively, I imagine it was originally a pub. Anyway a good start. We chose the sharing starter which consisted of fried plantain, chicken skewers, flat bread, coconut mushrooms, cassava(yam... More

This is an out of the way, small restaurant, with really good food. I have been a couple of times, and it has been excellent. the service is laid back, but not inattentive, the food is well prepared, plenty of it, and really beautifully seasoned. The owners are changing the place and i do hope they go on to be... More

I visit Peterborough for business quite often, and instead of driving back to London one Friday, I met up with a friend to try Embe. I had a brief look at the October 2014 online menu, and it started to make my mouth water. Only 2 of us, so we called in advance to make a reservation, as Friday night... More

Although my ribs were OK, the Jambalaya which 3 of our party had was paltry and the fish dish was described by the lady who had it as unpleasant. The... More

Beautiful food, well cooked and presented. Extremely good value and excellent service. Chef will often visit from the kitchen to ensure the meal is being enjoyed and answer any questions. Parking not easy. Recommendation? Yep...everything on the menu!
