Mesob Ethiopian Restaurant and Bar Northcote
Come and discover the charm of Ethiopia and MESOB.
Great service and great food. Can't recommend it enough.
The food here is so delicious! I also love that depending on the number of guests, the platter is evenly portioned for each diner. This is great for those who may not particularly like sharing with others. My only minor criticism would be that the service can be a little slow but all is forgiven when the food arrives. Great for families.
We were very excited to go to
Mesob and saved our visit up for Valentines Day, but we had a very disappointing experience. The waitress seemed to forget about us for long periods of time - it took half an hour to be given water, and an hour to be given our main. We left feeling very let down.
Valentines dinner for two. We were gratified at the well crafted flavours and the wonderful hands-on dining experience. The food was flavourful but without the one-dimensional overpowering spiciness as can sometimes spoil other cuisines. In all, I would definitely come back, preferably over and over.
Vast quantities of delicious, affordable Ethopian food, in a busy and LOUD restaurant. Go with a group, share a couple of platters and don't be sniffy about how loud it gets.
Great food for sharing, lots of flavour and caters to many dietary restrictions. Good attentive and fast service too.
EXCELLENT FOOD AND GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY. REALLY ENJOYED IT.
Very good Ethiopian food, wide range of choices. Good value for money
Much enjoyed an evening with good friend catching up in a great location Planning another meal at Mysob late February
A very popular but noisy restaurant. Service was prompt and there is virtually no waiting once you have ordered. We ordered the omni platter for two and there was a large variety of small samples of food, however there was way too much bread and not nearly enough salad for two people. Ended up cleaning the plate and still left slightly unsatisfied.
Great value and excellent service,very friendly highly recommend 👍
Great food, loved the atmosphere. I recommend the platters.
Food was unusual and very tasty. We thoroughly enjoyed our shared platter using our fingers as is tradition. There was ample food enjoyed with some wine. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the service.
Great food, and staff who are fabulous (extremely welcoming and patient with our group of 7) make this a place I'm always happy to go back to. Our group felt very well looked after! We each had our own section of the shared plate so the vegetarians were well catered to. We were happy with the list of drinks available, and a few of us tried the St George beer. Topped it off with some delicious coffee. A very happy customer!
Had a great night out with friends at Mesob in Northcote. Mesob is a great find for food with a difference. Great tasting, good vegetarian options, helpful friendly staff and well priced. Banquets provided great assortment of tastes and textures, but the a'la carte menu also has a lot of variety with both meat and vegetarian goodies. Easy to buy and share. Big thanks to the Mesob staff who were happy to help us drinks and coffees even though we stayed very late.
Love this place. Always take my friends and family here whenever they're visiting intetstate
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.
