It was my second time in this restaurant and I have to admit that the chicken main was nicer than beef. However, I would generally recommend this Ethiopian restaurant as it offers very nice food served in a good manner. The service is friendly, they speak quite good English and also Spanish, plus they explain in details how to properly... More

Amidst the tourist traps in the Manneken Pis area is this great little Ethiopian reastaurant. Good food, good service and a nice introduction to the Ethiopian cuisine and way of eating. Make sure to book a table in advance and to not wear too many clothes, it was very hot in there the evening we went. The fact that I... More

We tried this restaurant with my friends and overall it was good but I not of my favourites. They gave a good service and they give you a good explanation of the Ethiopian cuisine. So you go for their dish of 5 different small portions in one plate.And of course there typicall "pancake" you have to eat with your fingers... More

If you fancy trying exotic flavours, that’s the place for you. It was the first time we went eating Ethiopian, and it has been a nice discovery. You can try single dishes, although it may be better to go for the menu, if you wish having a broader glance of Ethiopian cuisine. All dishes are served with a typical, slightly... More

Friends took us to dinner here. We had never eaten Ethiopian food before, but our friends did. One of us was vegetarian. We had the Discovery menu of 25 euros per person. This means that the chef makes something for you. You can order vegetarian food, fish or make it spicy: they adapt according to your taste. Everything came in... More

I came there with a friend after hearing a lot about it from other people. Was not disappointed at all. Very cozy and local atmosphere and excellent food quality. Friendly waiters and reasonably swift service. Also, an excellent concept of service, where diners learn about the food traditions of Ethiopia. It is not only a delicious dinner but an unforgettable... More

We were a group of 4, firts timers here. Kokob is a very cozy restaurant, with warm colors everywhere but tables way to close to the next one. The concept is good, we really liked food and it was fun to discover Ethiopian cuisine but one you order your food, be ready to wait, and wait, and keep waiting. It's... More

Came on a recommendation. None of our party of six had eaten Ethiopian before so were looking forward to the meal. Waitress was pleasant and took the time to explain the concept of how food would be served etc. We had the chefs recommended two meats and three veg dishes served with a 'spongy' pancake which is used to pick...

Service was good and ambience good. However, I found the food to be rather tasteless for my liking. Different and great idea to experience another culture's food, but I wouldn't go back. A couple of our party did enjoy the food, so maybe try for yourself at least.
