I was reluctant to try African food but this, was so good. I suggest to take a menu shared by 2 people to taste different specialities. I can't say nothing of wrong about the food which was delicious. Also The staff was kind and funny....More

We went to KoKoB on a Sunday night. We booked ahead and were glad we did as it was quite busy. It was our first time there and we opted for a vegetarian discovery menu. It was OK but, for us, no more than that....More

It was our first time at an Ethiopian restaurant so we can only comment in terms of the food experience. And, in that sense, it was great. However, the room and the tables could be much better, the service could be quicker, and the drinks...More

Food was excellent and really appreciated staff explaining how things worked. Taking their advice we shared a meal - novel really since we are one veggie and one "eat anything" couple. Also had the best iced tea in Brussels.
