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

I have been to every ethiopian restaurant in Brussels and this one is from far the best one! Friendly staff and delicious food! Great place to spend quality time with friends!

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.

We had the New Year's Eve menu and the food was simply delicious! Not sure what it was, but so many savours and great service as well! Will definitely come back.

It’s always a delight to have dinner at KoKoB. Lucky for us, the restaurant served Ketfo (the Ethiopian steak tartare). Staff was friendly and welcoming as always. I defiantly recommend you visit this restaurant when you’re in Brussels!

We loved this unusual and tasty dining experience. Very tactile and communal eating style from common plate. No knives and forks (unless you ask), just tear a piece of pancake and glove your food straight into your mouth :-) Food is quite heavy and filling,...More

One of the best ethiopean restaurants in Europe, absolutely delicious and very fast service. Water bottle was 6 euros (yikes), but otherwise it was a normal price for a nice dinner (about 24 euros each). Food was outstanding, and the cocktails looked amazing. You definitely...More
