About Mesob Ethiopian Restaurant & Bar

At Mesob Ethiopian Restaurant & Bar, diners can explore the rich culture of Ethiopia through their authentic cuisine and charming decor, combining traditional design with sleek, modern furnishings. Ethiopian dining is all about sharing with family and friends, so at Mesob Ethiopian Restaurant & Bar you’ll find communal platters and dishes that further enhance the cosy and welcoming vibe of the restaurant. We recommend trying the bozena shiro (a chickpea stew with cubed beef slowly simmered with chopped garlic and tomato) or sharing the negus platter with friends (a selection of vegetarian and meat dishes served with a side salad). For a slice of Africa in Melbourne, book a table at Northcote’s Mesob Ethiopian Restaurant & Bar – you’ll find it located on High Street.

The 14 of us had a fantastic time together, sharing the delicious vegan & vegetarian platters & chatting throughout the night. Highly recommend the restaurant. It was not my first time & I'll be back again.

Always excellent food and wonderful service, our fav Ethiopian. Attentive service and food arrived very quickly, as there were only 2 of us we had the Omnivor platter.

Amazing food! Lovely staff (although you need to ask for water refills a lot). Get the banquet so you can try a little of everything. Really good value for money.

The experience was a new one. We enjoyed the food and the service, but it was a bit of a stretch for the kids. This is only due to the new flavors and one particularly unadventurous kid..... One big miss from the restaurant is that eating with your hands (as is the custom) there was a need for many more serviettes and they were not on good supply. We ordered way too much in the end - but they provided some take home containers so we had it for lunch the next day as well!

the food was amazing, really hard portions of food and incredibly tasty. the only downside was that it took over an hour for our food to come out, I understand it was a busy night but still, we had ordered before some people there and even they got their food before us

Great atmosphere and delicious food. Loved the share plate, with it's light fluffy pancake like bread and the assortment of meat and vegetable dishes. I tried the Ethiopian Syrah and enjoyed it very much
