I went to Kokob as part of an office function, the place is nice, good taste in decoration and a priori very good for a large group dinner. We were greeted warmly and the beginning was very nice. We ordered our food and were given the relevant explanations, when I tasted the pancakes it was not really to my liking... More

We love this place! If you've never tried Ethiopian food, don't be scared - its delicious! There are some spicy dishes, some mild, meat options, and a lot of vegetarian options as well! The food is always cooked so well and is so tasty and as with most Ethiopian places, you eat 'family style' at your table. So there is... More

We found this restraunt walking about, good menu with some vegi (hard to find here) at good prices. Went there the next day for dinner.

It was the first time I visited the place, and I can say it is an excellent spot for dinner in group. The service was very good, a woman warmly greeted us at our table as if the place is just one big happy family, which immediately creates a great atmosphere. The food is also wonderful, definitely try the chicken... More

I found Kokob during a two-day visit to Brussels at the end of October, and I am very glad I did. We arrived at approximately 20:00 on a Friday evening without a reservation, and the friendly and dynamic staff had us seated at a table for two within two minutes. There is no cutlery used for eating some Ethiopian dishes,... More

Our waiter started by highlighting that there were no knives and forks on the table, and that none would be provided! I won't divulge too much else but the food tasted amazing and I'd recommend the Ethiopian coffee if you're in the mood for a major lift!

Great restaurant with wonderful servers and even better food. This was my first time trying Ethiopian food and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The "communal" style was fun and the bread was of a variety that, while odd, was perfect for grabbing bites of the various delectables we had chosen for our platter. Don't be intimated by another cultures' fare, this... More

Hospitality and the welcoming is great. The waiter gives you a detailed explanation about the food how it is served. If it is your first time, go for the combo plates (choice of the chef). Bon Appétit. Also try the homemaw iced tea
