Service was excellent. The owner made us feel very welcome and even greeted us in our language(both German amnd Greek!). Spent time explaining the menu options and a small history lesson. Food was great and at reasonable prices. All three courses (both for vegetarian dishes and not) were amazing. Highly recommended.

We had the Masawa sharing platter which consisted of a selection of starters of spinach rolls, lentils rolls and falafels. Unfortunately the falafels were cut up which was a bit deceiving and also they didn't let us swap the falefels with samosas so we ordered the samosas at an extra cost and they were very small. The Masawa main course... More

I took my best and oldest friend here, a stranger to the capital, hoping to give him a unique and memorable experience to take back home; my partner came too. It was the right decision. On a cold Monday night in February we got the warmest possible welcome at Mosob - the staff were friendly and happy, and enjoyed explaining... More

The setting/seating isn't particularly atmospheric but the staff are very attentive and keen to give a good experience of their lovely food. Beware of the rolls for starters - they are delicious but filling and I would advise sharing one between two. The menu offers a good range from meaty to vegan and everyone I went with enjoyed their meal.... More

Last month, I organised a Christmas party at Mosob and I'm so glad that I used this venue to hold my event. I've been a customer at Mosob a couple of times over the years so I knew this family-run restaurant for its fresh, tasty Eritrean cooking and relaxed and fun atmosphere. Communication with the restaurant was great from the... More

I went here with two of my friends and without exaggeration it was one of the best meals I've had in my life. We ordered a set meat plate that came with lamb, chicken, cabbage, and lentils and we also asked for an order of Zilzil Quluwa (a beef dish). It was more than enough food for the three of... More

I love Eritrean food, but the food here was so bland. We went for one of the set menus. No depth of flavour. Pretty much student food. I felt no care or love in the cooking, Not one thing was delicious. I could have cooked better myself, I felt the waitress knew it, as she did not once ask how... More

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.
