Went there for a vegetarian meal and was not disappointed. A good selection of dishes and all super scrumptious! Totally recommended for veggie loving folks. And very affordable too.

I have to say this is by far the worst ethiopian restaurant i have been to. The table service was terrible with one lone clueless waiter running around like a headless chicken. To order a drink took over 30 mins and when it did arrive,...More

Probably been to Hamer 10 times and it’s never disappointed. The shiro is like a lentil-ly buttery taste of heaven. The yedoro wat is rich and complex. You can’t beat their kitfo. Coffee is fab. Service is so warm and friendly and chilled out. It’s...More

I met my friend here for supper one night. We both had vegetarian pancakes: for the life of me I can't remember what they were but in any case they were really lovely. The pancake had a strange texture but I'm open to anything (within...More

We went all the way out to Finsbury hoping to find some Irish traditional music at a pub there. Unfortunately it was not on and we were disappointed, and very wet from a downpour. Walking unhappily back to the tube, we passed Hamer. Its menu...More

I love Ethiopian food but most often it is hard to get the three essential things in one place with London Ethiopian restaurants. 1) Satisfyingly exceptional customer service, 2) great food and 3) atmosphere. Hamer has a beautiful ambience atmosphere. The decor and furniture are...More
