Further Information

Ethiopian food, such as that on offer at Meskerem Ethiopian Restaurant on Wandsworth Road in Lambeth, contains a variety of flavours and techniques that set it apart from other East African and international cuisines. The food is based – metaphorically and literally – on injera, a sourdough flatbread that doubles up as plate and serving method, and boasts a taste that is quite unique in London and beyond.

Alongside – or more accurately, on top of – this is the wat, a base stew that informs almost all Ethiopian cooking. Most dishes are much spicier than those of neighbouring East African or Arabic cuisines, and feature far more vegan dishes, due to the traditions of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, which often engages in fasting from meat and other products. When you venture down to Wandsworth Road in Lambeth, you can be sure of discovering something few in London have tasted: book your table now and set off on a voyage of culinary discovery.

This unassuming restaurant provided us with excellent food, drink and coffee at an excellent price. It is not the Ritz, but anyone interested in beautifully spiced, freshly prepared, good quality food will be more than satisfied in this very friendly, authentically Ethiopian environment. If you are not familiar with Ethiopian food it is worth being daring: the charming owner will guide you through the options and how to eat them! Don't leave without enjoying the coffee ceremony at the end!

I went with a larger group to Meskerem last night and we all were so impressed with the food and the service. The owner was very helpful and we chose two of the four person platters. Everything was extremely well cooked and delicious, and we were treated to a traditional Ethiopian coffee service after our meal. We were made so welcome and had a great evening. I highly recommend this restaurant, I will definitely go back!

We really liked this restaurant. The food was excellent, the service was very friendly, and the prices were definitely fair. They have two kinds of injera, one of which is the original imported from Ethiopia, which we will try next time!

Fantastic food, and we were guided (as first timers) very well by the waiter as to what to order. Very simply furnished, but don't let that fool you - the food's superb.

Excellent place with lovely food, very friendly and reasonably priced. They had a good range of dishes with the injera; we'd definitely go back - highly recommended!
