About Mesi's Kitchen

London is a melting pot of different cultures, boasting an array of restaurants serving up dishes from around the world, and Mesi’s Kitchen – located on Holloway Road – is flying the flag for Ethiopian cuisine. At this charming restaurant, diners can tuck into East African specialities, from breakfast dishes like chechebsa (lightly-fried injera bread cooked in berbere sauce and served with honey) to Ethiopian spring rolls and hearty main course dishes. Ethiopian cuisine may be known for being heavy on the meat, and London’s carnivorous crowds will have a field day here, but vegetarians will find an abundance of choice too. We recommend trying one of the slow-cooked vegetable stews like the shiro. To guarantee a table at Mesi’s Kitchen over in London’s Holloway area, make a reservation in advance!

This is a wonderful place for Ethiopian food. The owner is extremely welcoming and friendly, seeming so glad to see us and our friends. We went on a Saturday and luckily had booked, as we had the last empty table. As it was so busy, service was a little slow but that is my only criticism of the place. We had an excellent bottle of Ethiopian Syrah, and shared the mixed vegetarian plate for four people (£10.95 a head). It was absolutely superb, a selection of pulses and vegetables with varying degrees of spiciness. I praised the beetroot dish, and the owner kindly brought us some more for free. It's that kind of place, and we were glad to see it full and successful. I really can't praise the restaurant enough, it's by far the best Ethiopian food I've eaten.

The food is out of this world. Love the massive sharing platter we had for four vegetarians, completely stuffed by the end of it! Went for the coffee ceremony and a piece of coffee and walnut cake (traditional apparently from Italian influence). Highly highly recommend this place, we will b back!

Extremely friendly and helpful. Food was delicious and eating with Injera a great experience. Not very spicy, what I thanked. Recommended and a place to return
