MerkatoThis superb Ethiopian restaurant can be a bit intimidating for the uninitiated. There’s raucous music from live musicians and ordering can be confusing from a menu full of dishes like wot, tibs and kifko. However, the staff are very helpful and the food is first class. It can feel like a bar at times but most customers will find their visit so enjoyable that they too linger for drinks. This is a great place for a relaxed occasion, and has extensive vegetarian options.


Notes:
Live music.
Takeaway available.
Good vegetarian choices.
