Best Ethiopian food I’ve ever had plus great service and atmosphere
The food was absolutely delicious. I’ve been to many Ethiopian restaurants and this one by far exceeds them all in terms of service, food and ambiance. Definitely coming back for more.
Such a wonderful restaurant. The food is FANTASTIC and the service is brilliant. We had a Christmas Party here and they were wonderful. I highly recommend to anyone - a fantastic evening out
I had this place recommended by friends and was so impressed by the food and the service, could not be happier, outstanding value, I had a lovely night with close friends
Great food, great service, amazing music (bar next door). Thanks
Absolutely fantastic food and our waitress was exceptional, friendly, knowledgeable, attentive, I have recommended this place to many friends already! Will definitely be back
Outstanding food, great service. Highly recommended.
Delicious food, nice atmosphere. Highly recommend for dinner with friends.
Really enjoyed our first experience with Ethiopian food. Its very spicy and tasty. Service was great considering the crowd on a Saturday evening. Will return.
Walking into Mesob i felt such a warm and inviting atmosphere. My friend and i shared a vegetarian platter and it was soo delish! I couldn't stop eating until it was all gone. It's such a lovely experience to eat with your hands, picking up the yummy injera bread and all the curries! So many beautiful flavours.
Service and food was lovely, the space is fun and friendly, enjoyed our dining experience there very much.
Very busy restaurant but this did not seem to have an impact on the service provided. Friendly wait staff, great value for money, food was delicious and my husband was extremely happy with the amount of injeri bread served!
I can highly recommend dining at Mesob after friends and I enjoyed an amazing dinner here! We were welcomed with a smile and the fantastic service continued throughout the evening. Food was authentic and delicious with lots of vegetarian options and the staff were very accommodating of our dietary requests. We enjoyed an Ethiopian Syrah wine that paired perfectly with our meal! This place is a real gem.
Great share platter and the service was excellent. The perfect place to go with a group of friends to share authentic food together.
We love Mesob's food, and the smiling service from the staff!
The sharing plates, eaten with your fingers are the way to go to try a range of flavours. Sharing the same piece of injera as your partner or guests is quite an intimate experience, and is a lot of fun!
My partner is gluten-intolerant, and the restaurant makes an excellent GF injera, so she's not left out!
It gets very busy, so book ahead.
It's also not a quiet restaurant when busy, so be prepared for some noise and lively conversation.
The staff are always friendly, smiling and laughing, both with each other and the guests.
We'll be back, again, and again, and again, and...
Great food, good service, good value, great location, overall Experience was amazing.
Nice local spot. Food is great, good quality and outstanding value. Service friendly, though they were pretty busy for a Tuesday night and there were only two front of house staff on so it wasn't the most attentive. Overall though, a good night.
Mesob has always delivered. The service is great as is the food and the atmosphere. Friendly staff who were most accommodating with us having a one-year old at the table.
Great atmosphere and dining experience. Delicious food and good service.
Hey this is one of absolute favourites in Northcote - great Ethio food with wonderful staff and great service
Such a fantastic place! Loved being able to share food with friends, everything was delicious and the drinks menu had lots on offer.
We loved Mesob. Warm and inviting with fantastic service, delish food! Nice drinks list :)
Staff were friendly and efficient. Value for money. Interesting to try a new cuisine.
Delicious food and great service. I’ll be back. I just loved the different tastes.
Great Ethiopian food - service was charming and efficient!
Really good food and presented beautifully. The atmosphere is really nice and the staff were lovely.
Amazing! The food, vibe and staff were all 10/10. Highly recommend.
The boyfriend and I loved this restraunt! Such great food and service !! 10/10
We booked a table for 6. Were originally seated at a tiny table suited for 4 max. It was only when we said we would prefer to go somewhere else they asked other people to move so we could have a larger table. A long time standing (all 6 of us) in awkward passageway waiting for table. Then they made out like they had done us a HUGE favour. Not very impressed. Especially considering we had booked in advance. Very embarrassed in front of our guests. Far too many other great restaurants in High St Northcote. Probably wont come back. Especially considering we are locals and patronised this restaurant when they were starting out. Trying to pack too many in now, completely lost personal edge.
Awesome place, it is my go to for eating out. So yummy and great atmosphere.
Friendly service. Delicious food and very generous portions. The vegetarian options were great.
Delicious authentic Ethiopian food with fantastic service
Delicious food and attentive service. Comfortable environment, and a very easy place to go to before a movie or to see a band.
Husband became extremely sick after being served gluten bread when GLUTEN FREE was requested.
Food not exciting. Surprised by other reviews as it was very noisy, dimly lit to the point it was difficult to read the menu. Entrée was essentially a salad but this was not the description conveyed by the menu.
The mains ordered were, honestly, mediocre. A bad birthday treat. Would not return under any circumstances.
Amazing - Always a great experience coming to MESOB
Amazing food, served by incredible staff all for an extremely reasonable price. New favourite restaurant.
This restaurant came highly recommended but we were incredibly disappointed.
The initial greeting was god but all down hill from there.
It took 10 minutes for the waiter to bring the water to our table and ask about drinks even though there were only 2 other tables occupied.
When we were asked for our dinner choice we asked for clarification as to the differences of the 3 platters
This was explained well and we made our choice.
The food was at the table within 5 minutes and looked appealing.
Unfortunately it was barely warm, we called over a waiter and ask if the food was meant to be hot.
The answer we were given was "sometimes and you can have it hot or cold and she walked away.
We didnt really enjoy the food and said so when the platter was collected.
The waiter made no comment.
We sat for about 15 minutes waiting for someone to ask if we wanted dessert or more drinks.
That didnt happen so my husband went to the bar asked for the bill, paid and we left.
Great place, really nice vibe for a get together with friends.
The authenticity of the injera and accompanying sauces keep my hubby, kids and I coming back! We love this place and the friendly owner!
