Have passed this place for years and wondered about it but never went in. Tried it this evening. Sharing platters are tasty both meat and vegetarian options and are almost too big. Coffee at end is a fun and delicious experience. Didn't pay so can't speak as to value though I will definitely return. Staff are a little inattentive and... More

What a great experience we had at Adulis. The wonderful people and atmosphere made us feel welcome and warm from our arrival. All of the food is excellent. The prices are reasonable and wine selection was pretty good. It is a casual and fun evening that anyone would enjoy. The recommendation from our lovely server was to always to a... More

Never tried this type of food before and I am always willing to give things a try. The meat dish I chose was nice enough but wish I had chosen what my wife and son chose as theirs came with a sauce. You get a choice of rice or Injera which is a spongelike pancake served cold. It was very... More

I visited Adulis for my birthday after getting a taste for Eritrean food. The staff were lovely and the decor in the restaurant is to a high standard, some lovely decorations and designs. I had the 'Adulis Mies' (the honey wine) which was delicious - I'd definitely recommend trying it. The food is very well-priced, we had a platter for... More

I went here with a group of friends for my birthday and had a great time. The food was delicious (we had two sharing platters - one for the veggies and one for the meat eaters!) and we all really enjoyed it, great for sharing with a large group. The coffee ceremony was great and the staff were lovely, they... More

This restaurant is something a bit different and well worth a visit. The food is great and reasonably priced for the quantity. We really liked the style and having the shared meal with lots of different dishes to try. It was a bit understaffed and the card machine was broken but I'm certainly going to visit again.

I ate here recently on a Saturday evening with a friend. I hadn't eaten Eritrean food before, apparently it's very similar to Ethiopian food. We ordered a meat platter for 2, but there was probably enough for 3 people (and I have a hearty appetite). Service was friendly and efficient, and prices are quite reasonable. I'd probably eat here again.... More

Great value for money to start with. Nice little place! Food was very good and given the cost is kinda underpriced. Pleasant staff too.

This is such a great restaurant - its one of our locals and we wish more people would try it! My husband and I always order a bottle of white wine and the meat & veg shared platter for two. Very filling & VERY good. Always great staff too!

I went there with a friend who wanted to try something different. I have previously had Eritrean food, so I knew pretty much what to expect. The restaurant has a lovely decor, the staff was polite, friendly and accommodating and the food was really nice and flavoursome. I will certainly return in the future.
