    Ordered the Omnivore combination platter for 4 people. The food was absolutely delicious and we will definitely be going back. I would have preferred a smaller quantity and a lower price… but apart from that, no complaints.

    Delicious food. I've been coming here since it first opened back in 2016. It's great that they gave takeaway containers as I couldn't finish the whole meal. Overall, a great experience.

    Great atmosphere and excellent service. Overall a good experience. We ordered the Omnivore platter. It was very tasty but it was a little pricey for what was essentially a pancake and a few spoons of different dishes. *($60) The other plates looked like a bit better value.

    First time dining at Mesob and enjoying Ehtiopian food. Attentive friendly staff and lovely food. Owner/Manager came to talk to us at the end of the meal and delighted us with some culture and history of Ethiopia. Very nice meal - we got a combo meal option. Would highly recommend and will be exploring more of this fine cuisine in the future.
