Brilliant Afro Caribbean food such as Curried Mutton, Jerk meats and a wonderful Seafood Jambalaya. Red Stripe on draught, boozy cocktails, really attentive service despite the fact that it was absolutely full - and no wonder, this place is a real find, they even brought us some spiced chicken wings and cassava chips when we first arrived because we were new customers! And it was amazing value too. Did I forget the Jamican trifle? Gingerbread, rum and cream! We'll be back.

Went to the restaurant this evening following many good comments from friends.
Although we did not book a table the waitress said it would be no problem. Could not fault any of the service! The staff were attentive and extremely polite.
The menu was small which didn't overwhelm, the food was cooked fresh and delicious!
We had already decided we would return, then 20% off vouchers on our next meal was the cherry on top of the cake!

I took my wife,daughters & son for a buffet lunch at the Embe today. Once again we were not disappointed with the food, drink & ambience!

We started with a Winter Warmer Pea Soup - very tasty with a little kick! Then a skewer of spicy chicken & a gorgeous veggie option. Then all the mains & sides were brought out - all beautifully cooked, presented & fantastic fresh ingredients. There was plenty of food for the three carnivores & two veggies in our party - we all felt completely stuffed! Three of us managed a pudding - the Jamaican Trifle was particularly more-ish.

Nick the chef came out to greet us personally & remembered us from last May - a very humble, welcoming & un-assuming host. His staff are also so polite, efficient & pleasent & nothing is too much trouble.

I cannot urge tripadvisor users enough to visit the Embe - I can honestly say I've not eaten such tasty food anywhere else. I you're looking for a change from curry/chinese try the Afro-carribean food at Embe, I cannot stress how tasty it is.

Delicious food. Great service. Chef personally comes out to greet you, a nice touch. Not for posh dining but well worth a visit.
