Adulis Description

The atmosphere at Adulis is always chilled out. Their customer base includes a cross section of South London and beyond. Since its inception in 1996, the restaurant has gone from strength to strength - it's now bigger as they have acquired the old Indian restaurant next door. The decoration is strictly Eritrean including various traditional Eritrean bric-a-bracs. Adulis was recently refurbished.

The Adulis philosophy is driven by a commitment to provide good and wholesome food within an authentic Eritrean setting. In order to stay true to our commitment, we import all of our organic herbs and

spices directly from Eritrea. Moreover, our fish is imported from Eritrea as harvested from the Red Sea.

You can also have a taste o f the homegrown beer – Asmara – as well Eritrean honey wine at Adulis.All our recipes are prepared in a strictly traditional manner without modifying them to meet a ’stranger’s’ preference. By doing so, we believe that we can give our customers the best of Eritrean cuisine. Our injera is freshly baked in-house on a daily basis.

“Great food with amazing flavours. Had a great meal in a nice environment - if you ever visit, don't ever leave without trying the traditional coffee ceremony - it comes with popcorn and incense and the aroma is out of this world. My friends and I will definitely be back!”

“I'm actually totally mindblown - as to just how unbelievably bad an experience we've just had. at Adulis. We waited an hour & a quarter just for the starter, then when the main finally came, it looked really amazing (we had ordered a vegetarian combo platter for 2). It was a big dish of injera, with at least 8 or 9 different dishes on it, possibly as many as 10. The first one i tried was tasty enough, but it seemed strange that it was only just luke warm. I tried the other dishes 1 by 1 - luke warm was the best it got - & that was only for 1 other dish. All the others were abolsutely stone cold. And I mean like straight out of the fridge stone cold. They were all tasty enough, but it just didn't seem right. We have eaten at ethiopian restaurants several times, & it seemed to be much the same type of food, but the dishes were always hot previously. We called the guy over & asked if they were supposed to be cold, & he said no, apart from 1 of them, they should all be hot. He took the plate away, & came back another 15 minutes later, with the very same plate, with the very same injera & the very same half eaten scoops of food on it. The injera, that had previously been just about at room temperature, was now completely cold. The actual dishes themselves were still only luke warm. It seemed that they had been microwaved halfheartedly 1 by 1, & that by the time they had finished, most of them were cold again. I think that as a minimum, they could have put it on fresh, warm injera, & properly heated the food through, & preferably given us fresh scoops of all the various dishes. Basically, I walked out in disgust. And instead of being apologetic, the guy started getting shirty with me. Maybe this is not how they usually are. I really feel compelled to say something now, as this is quite possibly the worst meal out I have ever had. And it's Valentine's night as well!”

Adulis Food Menu

Eritrean cuisine is spicy but not necessarily hot across the board. The menu at Adulis includes an extensive selection of vegetarian dishes. All dishes are served with Injera, a tangy pancake-like soft bread, or rice.

"Very rude management. Asked to leave the table when there were no queues. Then the manager was very arrogant and told us that if we wanted to leave a negative review we could do so. Poor customer service..." Which venue is this?
