Marie-Lais Emond

Begin with tapas-type starter dishes, like five little Gyoza potstickers that are Japanese ridged dumplings, pan-fried with a kimchi-and-tofu filling, served with Japanese plum sauce, a heavenly spicy, creamy, sour mix of cultures on a cute plate. There’s also beef and pickled shiitake stuffing. There are many tapas-sized dishes from which to choose, including the popular firecracker prawn that comes butterflied, crisped with Japanese 7-spice flavouring and wasabi mayo.

A bao as a main dish is just ideal – perhaps go for the Lucky Bao, the steamed bun containing an unforgettably tasty pile of soft and smoky-sweet Chinese brisket, spring onion and coriander, with Momo sriracha. A bao with a completely different but immensely satisfying flavour profile is the Kung Pow one, with Korean beef, kimchi, gochujang and mayo. For mains there are also bowls, both ramen and speciality ones. All the food is really very good and vegetarians are well taken care of.

Dessert isn’t really a thing, maybe because there’s a famous patissier right next door, but the sole dessert of little fried buns in a dulce de leche sauce is sweet enough.

There’s no corkage cost or liquor license; however, the lemongrass yuzu ginger beer is divine and there’s a Turkish delight lemonade too. The teas are excellent and taste pretty good throughout the meal, like the strange-sounding popcorn tea and the serious Black Dragon oolong. The usual soft drinks and coconut waters are available.

The staff are confident and knowledgeable but there are generally not enough people to go around, even when the restaurant is not too full.

The room is simply functional, not as creatively styled as the other Momos but it has its own zen atmosphere, despite the noise from the traffic and the noise from within when busy, bouncing off the hard surfaces.

    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.
