“Go here for something a little different!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Very nice authentic cuisine. Great atmosphere and nicely delivered. Have an open mind- you wont find a menu like it locally! Do visit, and try the local honey wine.

“Homely feel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

I have been to Adulis it has been lovely and warm atmosphere and the staff is always helpful and happy to help with food selection.
They go above and beyond to help like last time when they went out and bought a cake for my aunts birthday on a bank holiday without any problems. It was such a surprise for her and So appreciated.

I can not wait to go back and can warmly recommend it if you want lovely food and is around Oval.

“Great fun – something a little different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

I’d already tried Ethiopian cuisine in a small restaurant in North London, but spotted Adulis (‘Little Eritrea’) a couple of days ago and had to check it out. I wasn’t disappointed. Service was so friendly and they will happily cater to couples or large groups – I saw both when we ate there. It’s a very relaxed and atmospheric place which is lit with candles and has been decorated with animal skins and traditional rustic furniture which would be perfect for a date. Also, they don’t rush you away from your table when you finish, which contributes to the relaxed feel of the place.

If you’re not familiar with Ethiopian cuisine, here’s a brief introduction: the curry, salad and rice is served on a traditional flatbread and you are given extra flatbreads to eat it with. It’s gorgeous food and good to try something a little different.

“Great for something new!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

What an experience! I've never eaten with my hands before! I wasn't too sure about the pancake stuff, it had a citrusy flavour which got a bit much after a while, but the selection of curries were all very delicious, as was the honey wine.
