Found it hard to find initially. Service was very polite and efficient. Lovely food and unusual dishes for peterborough but its nice to have the variety. Both I and the Mrs M enjoyed the experience. Deserves high praise.

I visited with a friend having previously been to Embe and enjoyed my food.

The restaurant was busying up and we were seated at a table for 2 which was closely squeezed in between 2 others, this was not ideal but didn't ruin our experience.

There was a special 2 course menu running on a Tuesday so we ordered a starter & main course for £10.95. I enjoyed a Coconut Stuffed mushrooms, these were flavoursome and I soon polished them off.

For main course I had mutton curry, this was very nice, it also was abuzz with flavour and was clearly home made. I had a side dish of sweet potato with my meal, this looked slightly different to how I expected (It was green not orange!) but was absolutely tasty.

This was a very nice experience, the food was excellent and the young serving team took care of us throughout.

We had an African colleague staying in England for the week and decided to have a meal at Embe. We loved the decor and atmosphere of the restaurant. The chef/owner was very attentive and the food was amazing and good value for money. We will certainly be paying a visit there again soon.
