Food

Start off your Momo street food experience with Asian tapas. The Firecracker Prawns, perfectly butterflied and crispy, served with puffed vermicelli, sriracha, togarashi spice and wasabi mayo, will get you into the swing of things. Meanwhile, the sushi menu will have you spoilt for choice. Opt for the volcano roll – a salmon casing holding fresh prawn, Kewpie mayo, sriracha, sour and spicy kimchi, togarashi spice, chilli oil and toasted sesame seeds, garnished with spring onion.

For mains, the Chairman Bao deserves special mention – a fluffy steamed bao bun stuffed with tender pulled lamb, hoisin, Kewpie mayo, crushed peanut, spring onion, coriander, fried onion and toasted sesame seeds. The Colonel Bao is also a winner. All bao options are reasonably priced, suitable for an adult main meal, and best eaten with your bare hands.

For something more substantial, tuck into the bowls. Choose either steamed jasmine rice, smoked wok noodles or stir-fried greens, and match it with a bowl of your choice. If you like a bit of a kick, go for the Szechuan bowl. For vegetarians, meat can be swapped out for tofu. Vegetarians are also catered for with veg sushi options, tofu dishes, greens and the Greenway Bao bun.

The dessert menu contains only one item. Rather finish off your meal with a pot of authentic jasmine tea to cleanse the palate.

Drinks

There’s a very limited list of non-alcoholic drinks on offer, such as soft drinks, coconut water, and lemongrass yuzu ginger beer. Guests are encouraged to bring their own alcoholic drinks at no corkage fee. If you’d like to keep it authentic, order one of the speciality teas, like the Alishan Black Dragon, a slow-grown high mountain oolong tea.

Service

Friendly, welcoming staff are clued up on the menu and drinks policy. It gets really busy during peak hours, so expect to wait a while for your food to arrive. On weekends, book a table to avoid queuing outside. The restaurant could do with a few extra hands.

Ambience

A vibrant energy fills the room and lifts the mood. When you walk into Momo Baohaus, you’re greeted with the buzz of conversation and laughter. The décor is warm and modern, with monochromatic abstract art covering the walls. A casual, unpretentious space for any and every type of diner.

Best for…

Lunch or supper with friends, birthdays, meetings, or just casual dining.

    Another visit and another satisfied customer. Taste explosion
    The baos which is the main speciality - are AMAZING and highly recommended!! Their tapas, noodles and sushi are also delicious! There are people here so the atmosphere is always lively. The waiters are attentive and answer questions about the food.
    Momo Bauhaus must have some of the best Asian food in Joburg. The bowls are super fresh and filling. The sushi is great, too I’ve been a number of times and while I always try something new it’s tempting to order old favourites. Friendly, funky atmosphere with great service. And one of the best things is you can bring your own wine, leaving extra cash to come again in a short time!
    The food is amazing! We are never disappointed. Must try- spicy kalbi beef, crispy calamari, Korean fried chicken wings and the sushi is all divine! Every dish is absolutely delicious. Go with lots of people, order lots of different dishes and try as many dishes as you can. We will definitely be back again and again. Winner!
    Ordered 9 different dishes and dishes were above standard. Fresh. Tasteful. Delisious. WOW.
