Really good

Great muquecas, also the Siri is delicious. And the caipirignas are well done. Mostly locals you do not see tourist here as it is a bit out of the center. Portions are big, one is good for 3, even if the server says it is for 2. I loved it, the food was carefully prepared, and relatively light (for... read more

The food was ready 5 minutes after we have ordered and it was excellent. The waiter was very honest while I was asking few questions about the food. But a restaurant like this with 2 broken air-conditioners is a joke.

It´s a good alternative for very famous restaurants ... Nice food with fair price ... There are other restaurants from the same owner with same quality in other places, as in Itapoan, where scene is much more pleasant.

We ate here twice, and I have to say the food was plentiful and excellent. The moqueca and bobo are exquisite, wonderful!! The price is very good, in truth i could not fault the food or service. Don't miss it.

If you want brazilian food, and Salvador is pretty good at it, Ki Mukeka is a great option. Ask for the ki mukeka salmon it is really delicious.

We came here because of a recommendation from our driver. The place was close to our hotel but not close to the major tourist areas of salvador. Sea food is great here. We shared two shrimp dishes and both were excellent. Desserts and drink options are good as well. It is very much on the steep side of costs but... More

Food is all bahian style. They portions are also for 2 people. We got the shrimp stew (camarao Moqueca) and 2 drinks. It costs us a little over $100 real for 2 people. The location is in a good location. Service good. The shrimp stew was good, but not the best food in Salvador. They also take credit card. :-)

I went for lunch in a week day. It was perfect: not so crowded, a good service (and fast...); and the food was delicious. Actually the cone siri was not (it had some hard pieces that I don't like). But the shrimp bobó was perfect!!!!

Very good food and friendly service. One mukeka is enough for 2-3 persons. The right address for the restaurant is: Avenida Octavio Mangabeira, 136.

Am allergic to shell fish and every time I go to Ki Mukeka restaurant, the cook make sure that she comes to the table to assure me that I can eat what I like without fear. I just love the food and the service. The environment is familiar and cozy. Service is friendly and respectful. We just love everything about... More
