Mesob Ethiopian Restaurant and Bar Northcote
Come and discover the charm of Ethiopia and MESOB.
so delicious and fresh and authentic! Love this restaurant! The Bar next door is also awesome to drop in after dinner and see some great African music. We always go back!
Also great for coeliac's as they offer GF option with the enjera and most of the food and understand safety wand risk with cross contamination in the kitchen.
The food was absolutely delicious. I was introducing a friend of mine to Ethiopian food and she was blown away. Wonderful service and food came out quickly, was also reasonably priced. I will be back very soon.
Great atmosphere, with excellent ethiopian food! An awesome place to bring a big group of friends
Insanely delicious Ethiopian food. Lovely staff. One of the best in Melbourne (possibly the best).
Amazing food, super friendly staff. Will be going back again as soon as possible!
We ordered the omnivore platter and everything was delicious. The Ethiopian beers were super tasty and a good match
Delicious food, super friendly service. Share platters were generous. Dietary requirements were easily accommodated.
This is one of my favourite places to eat on a regular basis. The quality of the food is outstanding and the value is amazing. It's the perfect place to go on a date or eat with friends.
Had such a lovely time ! The service was amazing and the food was so delicious and filling. The whole experience was great. Definitely coming again and highly recommend
Food is excellent and priced competitively for the quality. Recommend the share platter.
So delicious! Loved the variety of food available. And service was wonderful. Everyone was so lovely and accommodating. Will definitely be making this a regular spot!
Absolutely delicious food, kind helpful wait staff. Beautiful decor, we'll definitely be going again.
A great restaurant with amazing food, nice Ethiopian beers too!
Great staff, great food, great service - definitely will be back!
Superb food. Had the herbivore platter (vegan), we are no strangers to Ethiopian food, this was VERY good. Really helpful waitress. We had a great evening.
Fabulous food. Quite different experience eating with our hands but well worth it.
Staff were great and atmosphere was buzzing.
We had a wonderful night. The food was delicious and interesting. It's fun to have a night out eating with our fingers! The only warning I would give anyone going there is that it's not necessarily the best place for people with hearing difficulties because it's quite loud. Generally this just adds to the atmosphere but it was difficult for one of our party who does have a hearing difficulty. Luckily, the quality of the place, the service and the food meant that she has an enjoyable night anyway. Thank you Mesob people!
Great food and friendly attentive staff.
If your coeliac check this place out! Lots of options.
Wonderful experience we will be back. The good was delicious and the atmosphere was fun.
Always an incredible experience at Mesob. Food is amazing, staff are friendly and inviting. A true standouts along High Street.
Great food and service. Love the spicing in the good. Would highly recommend.
My boyfriend and I have been wanting to go here since we heard about it last year, but had to wait because they closed over Christmas and New Years.
We are so glad we followed through, the staff were so nice, our food was amazing and it was a truely great experience, eating traditionally how they would in Ethiopia, the music, the vibe, we are already planning to go back again.
A great alternative to the “regular” way of dinning out. The share platter was well portioned, very tasty and good value. Friendly and excellent service.
Tasty and different!
We ordered a share plate, value for money and delicious!
Very crammed and a little disorganised, It was suggested we try the Omnivore combination platter, very little food but lots of bread, if I was to go back I’d order entrees and mains.
The most incredible traditional Ethiopian food! Huge portions, wonderful staff and an overall amazing vibe. Cannot wait to go again!
Family dinner on a Saturday night. Good food, service & vibes.
Such a great place - we had the vegetarian platter (can easily be made vegan) and absolutely loved it! Highly recommend.
Wonderful food especially for a coeliac. Also sell GF beer.
Very warm people.
Ate way too much
The food and staff were very polite and very helpful. They chose to bring snacks for our child who wasnot sure of the cuisine and were very encouraging to him to try new things. Definitely a great experience and we loved all our food.
Great experience, something completely different but really fun. Amazing flavours and eating with my hands really put me outside my comfort zone, but it was fun too. Highly recommend Mesob
Cool experience. You eat with your hands which was different and a great way to experience the culture. Food was delcious, we had the share platter.
I’ve been to Meob a handful of times and it never disappoints. The staff are lovely and at times distracted but this didn’t dampen our meal. In fact I come from interstate and as my partner says “to the country” to eat here. It was a catch up with great friends so the communal platter is best for this occasion. I’ll be back.
Beautiful spicy food, friendly staff. Interesting atmosphere. I really liked that sour bread - very unique and the perfect balance to the hot beef dish I had.
Lovely staff and the food is honestly heavenly. Will definitely have come back to try everything else!
We had a lovely time introducing my father to Ethiopian food. Delicious food and a fun and interesting culinary experience. Thank you!
I ate at this restaurant a couple of years ago and remembered how fantastic the food was, so I decided to give it another try on a recent visit to Melbourne. We were ten minutes late, but I called the restaurant and they were happy to hold the table despite how obviously busy they were. Since the last time I was in Melbourne, I have was diagnosed with coeliac disease. The restaurant completely understood my allergy requirements and were able to cater for me nonetheless. They made me a gluten free equivalent. And it was DELICIOUS!!! Everyone else at the table also enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. I cant remember the name of the dish I had but it was the Ethiopian bread on a platter with various toppings you eat with the bread and your hands. Highly recommended! Mesob! Come open a restaurant in Canberra!!
The most amazing food experience for such a great price! A great place to go with a group of friends!
Very tasty food, great range on the menu ...we chose the $26 pp platter to get a taste of several different things...service great....would go again.
So delicious and great value for money! Highly recommend.
