Pero Restaurant is as rich and diverse as Eastern African culture. The spectrum Pero Restaurant cuisine can be said to lie between two dietary extremes: vegetarianism and meat-eating. The essence of good Eastern African cooking revolves around the appropriate use of aromatic spices. The skill lies in subtle blending of a variety of spices to enhance, rather than overwhelm the basic flavour of a particular dish. Pero food relies on the spices in which it is cooked, just as Japanese Sushi relies on the freshness of the meat, and Chinese food relies on the various sauces to impart the right flavour and taste. It is interesting to see an Eastern African chef at work, with a palette of spices, gratuitously sprinkling these powders in exact pinches into the dish in front of him. It is these complexities of regional food in Eastern Africa that make it a so very fascinating experience. Pero aims to bring the most traditional dishes from all corners of Eastern Africa, maintain the classic Eritrean recipes and enhance the offering with some signature dishes to reflect the changing food trends in modern Africa. They will gladly prepare a dish you require that does not appear on the menu, time permitting. The menu is designed by Award Winning chef Wondiy Beshir.

Highly recommend! The food, service, and ambiance was remarkable!! I mentioned to the owner I was surprising my gf for our anniversary and the owner delivered. They have really nice cozy and private places throughout the restaurant. We had the vegetarian platter and it was nothing short of amazing. Finally, the owner invited both of us to the bar, put on a firey show accompanied with a complimentary drink. The owner and staff truly went above and beyond what we were expecting and made it a memorable night for us. We will be back!

My friends and went to celebrate a friend's birthday and we had an amazing time. The food is absolutely delicious, their coffee is amazing, and most importantly the service was impeccable. The owner had us surprise our friend with her favourite song, and he lit the bar on fire (yes literally on fire) and did a shot with us! It was really good. I highly recommend this place. 5/5

This place never fails to impress the people I bring. Hidden gem on Bloor west with unique flavors and the perfect amount of spice and my fellow diners always say "this stuff is addictive!" Peros is classy, cultural with a cool African tent in the back with couches for private bookings.
