We visited Koko for dinner in October, we were a group of 5. The spacious, well-appointed gastropub seats 80 people. It was crowded at 8 pm, early by Mumbai standards, but as they take 2 sittings, the next at 10 pm, understandable. It was our 1st visit to this restaurant which opened in July where it’s still hard to get a table reservation on any day of the week! At the moment, it’s only open for dinner.    

Spicy Salmon Sushi

Crispy prawn sushi

Crispy pork belly slices

Spare ribs

We mainly ate sushi and sashimi:  crispy pork belly, spare ribs, soft shelled crab, spicy salmon roll, mushrooms, shrimp done in various sauces. Very delicious, served with a variety of interesting chilli sauces. Quite full, we barely had room for the main course.
But so glad we did- ordered black rice with burnt garlic and sauteed morning glory, both outstanding.

We had a variety of interesting cocktails –my Funky Buddha cocktail was good.
The only disappointment was the dessert, the salted caramel tart, which was strictly average.

The people behind this are the brothers Tham, sons of Henry Tham, who’ve given Mumbai Trilogy, Juhu and the Good Wife, BKC.

Good service and lively classy cool vibe. Recommended

We’d just visited Bastian 3 days prior and I can honestly say I’d rate Koko higher – with its huge menu, generous portions and cost per head less than Bastian! (It was Rs 2000 approximately at Koko versus Rs 3000 per head at Bastian – both without tip and one alcoholic drink per head)
