Cannot fault Zeret to be honest. Attentive service and quality, tasty food with generous portions led to this positive review. I recommend the Vegan house special.

I've visited Zeret Kitchen three or four times now. It's a great place for vegetarians - we always go for the sharing platter - and the owners are lovely. It's not in the most beautiful part of Camberwell, but that doesn't matter. Highly recommended.

The sauces on top of the injera was lovely. It was my first time trying Injera and I definitely didn't like it. The restaraunt is nicely decorated and homely. The service is also really good. I recommend the spiced tea!

Lovers of Ethiopian cuisine and adventurous foodies will appreciate this bright, clean and modern restaurant in Camberwell that prides itself on its family recipes and dedication to authentic Ethiopian traditions. Zeret itself is a name that comes from a small village in northern Ethiopia, and the menu includes mostly chicken, lamb and beef stews made with butter, garlic and ginger served on pancake-like flatbread called enjera. All the food here is delicious, and the dining room is decorated with colourful placemats, potted palms and simple white walls. Perfect for communal/sharing meals with friends and family, the Zeret Kitchen has attentive staff and a relaxed atmosphere ��� don't miss the Ethiopian style chicken cooked with green chillies, herbs and spices.
