This is the 3rd time eating at this Eritrean restaurant on Harrow Rd. Despite the being close to this neighbourhood, it was long time since I dined here with friends. Knowing how good the food is, I paid visit again this evening and enjoyed great Eritrean meal. White girl served me this time who appeared to have a great k... More

I wanted to try out a new restaurant, did some research and Mosob came up under the cheap eats category. I do not think it should be included in this category. Besides that, atmosphere was fine, the person serving was friendly. But we found it a bit uncomfortable that we could not or were not given the freedom to choose... More

We appreciate your honesty with your feedback it will only help us improve the service. I only like to point out two things - the food and the way it is plated, The Injera (traditional bread) that accompanies the food in itself is sour and lemony in flavour hence the lemony taste as we do not use lemon when cooking...

I love trying new cuisines and was surprised to find out how vegan-friendly Ethiopian food is. Me and my friend came here for dinner, and it was my first proper experience of Ethiopian food. We ordered a huge plate of vegan goodness to share. Lots of lentil dishes, okra and other flavoursome, authentic foods graced our pallets and I must... More

Great food to be eaten with your hands and shared with friends. The manager is very friendly and smart. This restaurant is authentic and the atmosphere is great. Not the nicest spot in London in terms of location, but definitely not an issue. Will come back.

We ate here at the recommendation of a relative who is living in London. It was an excellent choice. The waitress gave us clear and helpful information on how the food is served and how to eat it. We ate a set menu and added one extra dish - the lamb chops. We ate the food with our hands and... More

The waiter was superb. I was impressed by his wit, humor & service with a smile. Unfortunately i couldn't recall the names of the dishes we had, as it was my first Eritrean restaurant. A well managed family restaurant But if you have Gabramichael as your waiter, blindly go with his recommendations

Description
Situated in London's Westbourne Park, just a five minute meander from the local tube stop, Mosob offers visitors a unique opportunity to experience the flavours and atmosphere of Eritrea. Family run, Mosob is warm and welcoming, with charming service really embracing the family-centric traditions of Eritrea and inviting guests to relax and unwind while being treated to the kitchen's vibrant cuisine. Influenced by geographic and historic links to Arabia, Ethiopia, the Sudan and Italy, Eritrean cuisine is uniquely distinctive with a strong variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes, individual spice blends and specialty injera bread used throughout, providing guests with flavours and eating styles they're unlikely to have come across before. Equally focused on tradition and history is Mosob's interior, carefully put together with colourful textiles, rough wood paneling and organic forms alongside contemporary lighting and furniture for comfort and style. Whether an intimate romantic meal, business lunch or dinner and drinks with friends, Mosob offers the food, atmosphere and service to ensure a night to remember.
