I've been here twice now and it's one of the best places to eat in London. The staff go that extra mile to be welcoming and friendly, and it's really genuine. Plus the food is absolutely delicious. I've always had the sharing platter and the presentation is excellent, the flavour so yummy and I love just being able to dive... More

I have been to this restaurant more than five times and each time the food maintains the same high quality. The staff is friendly, and the venue is spectacular. It is the go to space if you fancy exotic quality food.

I'd never had Horn-of-African cuisine before, so when my schoolmates decided to have a small get-together here, I was happy to oblige...and I was ASTOUNDED. :-) The ambiance is small and intimate, great for small groups if intimate friends. The service is informal and cheerful without being intrusive..lovely balance. But what does it is, of course, the food: delicious options,... More

Out with a group of old work colleagues, I really didn't know what to expect. I have never tried Eritrean food before. I was pleasantly surprised. It is a small but very clean establishment. We booked a table for 8 pm on a Friday evening and it was full by the time we were all seated. The service was first... More

As I walked in to Mosob, I have to say I was slightly underwhelmed. The place wasn't that full and the decor was nothing to brag about. But when the waiter arrived (who turned out to be Benjamin the owner), our experience was thrown on it's head. He started by asking us if we every had Ethiopian/Eritrean food and explained... More

The owner is really nice and entertaining. Service is a bit slow but they give you few charades so you forget about time. Warm hospitality, delicious food. Highly recommend experience for ethnic food

This is a family run restaurant, and service is definitely with a smile. The owner and waiter id delightful. His mother is the cook. The injera (like a crepe pancake/soda bread) served, is eaten daily in Eritrea and Ethiopia. We had a starter but be careful because the injera is filling. small portions of Eritrean food is served in the... More

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

mosob, Manager at Mosob Restaurant, responded to this review

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...

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.
