Every mouthful told a tale, a delightful harmony of tastes which managed to be simultaneously diverse yet cohesive, showcasing the nuanced brilliance of African cuisine. More than a dining experience – it’s a journey.

Wonderful… Crackerjack Dishes… Good enough to stake it a claim for inclusion in the Good Food Guide.

The food is interesting, and tasty, and not too expensive; and the welcome is so warm you could cuddle it.

You can lose yourself in the earthy delights of Ethiopia and Eritrea at The Abyssinian in Kensington every night of the week.


This is one of those delightful restaurants where good unusual food, good value and friendly hospitality make it rather special. It’s very relaxed and worth a visit.
