Very nice restaurant!!! Definitely worth it!

It was my first time I tried Ethiopian kitchen, and I really liked it! Great service, nice environment! One of the best restaurants I've been in Brussels I think!

Last week I had a business dinner at Kokob, an Ethiopian restaurant in Brussels, and even though the sizes of the meal were decent and the wine was also nice, the food itself was not too authentic I'd say. I'm not a peron who enjoys hot food, but I can tell you, for an Ethiopian place, this was really not... More

Great tasting, quality food, helpful staff with fast service. A very enjoyable and unique eating experience; a variety of Ethiopian tapas style dishes eaten by hand.

The food is great and the girls who explain the Ethiopian eating principles are really nice. However, the Belgian staff is quite rude - we had a table reserved and the lady almost shouted at us to wait in the doorway until we could be lead to our table. Also, we wanted to share two variety menus between three people... More

This is somewhere to come for something a bit different. Our dinner was served on injura (kind of a thin, savoury Ethiopia pancake) and everything was delicious - we had the 6 dish vegetarian menu and it was great! A really nice balance of flavours and textures. The ambience was also really nice, with it being busy (even on thursday... More

We tried here after seeing it reviewed on Trip Advisor. The restaurant is close to the centre, a short walk from the Grand Place and near by are bars for a drink before or after. It does get busy so its worth reserving a table, though it is quite a large restaurant it extends through to the rear of the... More

The most expensive and pretentious Ethiopian restaurant ever - and be sure that you will not find a single Ethiopian person inside. The waiter will teach you a lesson about how to eat the food by stuffing food in your mouth at his free will. Be prepared to be shocked, stuffed and to wake up with a swollen face the... More

We ended up here after the place we'd originally planned to visit turned out to be full, and thank goodness we did! The food was delicious and the waitress did a great job of talking us through the process, which basically involves scooping up mouthfuls of a selection of different meat and vegetable dishes using what I'd describe as a...
