GREAT NIGHT OUT - review by mcglash
Found out about this great little bar when we read it won The best spirit bar in UK. We had my birthday here and went for their ultimate party package which is well worth it and includes a cake which to my surprise was not bought from supermarket but hand made by one of their staff who has their own cake business, i later found out. Cocktails are amazing and the same price as the other bars but much better quality and unique! We sampled some Cristal champagne which is why we went for their package which makes it accessible to try. I thought the food was fantastic. I can see the woman below seems to have not liked it, but i must point out that when talking to the friendly staff there, i commented on their food and they mentioned that they had to change their chef in Feb due to a lot of issues and are happy that now the food is being so well received. Overall i would say its a great place to have some unusual cocktails, great food which is Tapas grill mixed with some sushi?! and the music is just perfect. Cant wait to get the girls together again. I hope you all find this useful. Definitely check it out! I have lived here for 6 years and only just found it!! [Sep 12] 25 Sep 12
Drinks, ok. Food, nope. - review by karie
Mokoko prides itself on the cocktails, which are good but very pricey. And if you want food, avoid. You'd be better off at the Pizza Express across the street! [Jan 11] 24 Jan 11

Great caipirinha.. - review by south-sider

When we arrived at Mokoko just after 9pm on a Tuesday night it was very quiet. However, their inventive - if slightly unusual offer - of 'curry and a cocktail for £10' ensured that this cosy bar gradually got busier. We didn't stay long but we liked the decor, the friendly service and the quality of our cocktails. Recommended. [Apr 09]

Classy retro-chic - review by rnk

We popped into Mokoko for a bite one Saturday lunchtime, and very nice it was too. Stylishly retro wallpaper and fittings give it a cosy feel on a weekend afternoon, though I bet it's kicking on a Friday or Saturday night. We chose from their tapas menu and were pleasantly surprised. Great service too (though to be fair we were the only people in there at the time). And the loo was very clean and as classy as the rest of the joint, which for a bar just off St Peter Street is quite an achievement... [Feb 09]
