A bowl of fresh shrimp-flavoured rice chips welcomes you while you make your difficult choice of food types. The slew of tapas dishes includes salmon ceviche tacos served with a delicious combo sauce of plum, teriyaki and wasabi, as well as the hotter, spicier Korean fried chicken wings. Soko offers skewers of meat, seafood, chicken, tofu or shiitake mushrooms, grilled with a variety of sauces ranging from green basil and mint for the lamb to a spicy fried onion, teriyaki and togarashi marinade for the beef sirloin.

Try the fluffy bao buns with their range of fillings, a Momo bowl of spicy noodles (with a chilli icon guide), or a poke bowl filled to the brim with an interesting assortment of fresh ingredients and perked up with dressings such as chilli soy, wasabi yuzu vinaigrette, or ginger scallion drizzle.

Yuzu is also on the dessert list in the form of a citrus tart, or choose to indulge in deep-fried buns dunked in a sticky salted caramel sauce.


There’s no alcohol on the menu but you can choose from a selection of very different oriental teas, such as popcorn tea (actually roasted rice and genmaicha), or intriguing and unusual soft drinks such as Turkish delight lemonade or lemongrass yuzu ginger beer.


Friendly and helpful.


It’s located on a breezy corner overlooking the road (with a phalanx of outdoor heaters ready for cold days) in the retail precinct of a modern office block. Food is well presented using stylish designer crockery, but the décor is pared down – a long counter, some decorative wooden slats and cherry blossom wall art, with spartan tables and plastic chairs.

Best for…

A healthy workday lunch break with colleagues, a pick-me-up snack or a shared tapas spread for a group of friends before clubbing.

    So I’m sitting in Momo Kuro feeling bad because I just had to ask for service to order coffees for a second time. Apparently I’m being unreasonable even though nobody has been to our table since our mains arrived over an hour ago. Momo - your Greenside Restaurant was great but you seriously need to sort out your staff and their attitude. Rosebank & Illivo need some management.
    The food is tasty but value for money hampered by the 100g portions of meat in the main dishes. The hot and sour soup was tasteless. Service poor asked a waiter twice and the manager to take the soup back, eventually took the bowl back myself to the counter, and then had to ask them to remove the item from the bill at the end of the meal. Tasty tapas treats, the mushrooms really good. Could improve by more attentive service and larger protein portions in the momo bowls.
    This spectacular restaurant is a winner every single time. From the ambience, which is a cool vibe as it’s busy spot in Illovo, to the mouth watering and absolutely to die for food. The BYO booze policy with no corkage fee is absolutely great as you cut down on cost and can bring along your favorites. Bear in mind the dishes are all very reasonably priced which makes you just want to order more and more. The food is the real show-stopper, beyond my expectations and consistent each and every time. A good variety of seafood and vegetarian dishes, makes this gem suitable for everyone. Make sure to book a table as this magical spot is always busy with happy faces enjoying their bao’s , poke bowls or tasty tapas. Best done shared. Love and Light. Laughter and yumminess.
