Ate here with friends on a Tuesday night. Place was packed which is always a good sign.

Took our own wine and whisky as it's BYO.

The food was fantastic! Highlights were the calamari, the beef ribs, the sushi rolls and the Seoul bowl!

Will definitely be back next time I'm in Jo'burg.

The manager accommodated me early evening before the dinner rush when they were fully booked.

I sat at the bar - pleasant ambience, efficient service and cool decor.

Ordered the crispy beef. Noodles, veg were perfectly cooked. Unfortunately, the beef itself was disappointing as everything else was good.

Interesting, vibey place - will try it again sometime as the menu was interesting and different.

What a treat. An evening out with our supperclub... It took two attempts to book because the restaurant is very popular... Well worth the effort...

We had a fabulous meal, ordering a number of dishes to share. Clever, delicious combinations of flavours and textures.. We enjoyed everything we ate.

The restaurant is unlicensed so we brought our own wine and they supplied an ice bucket and glasses.

We noted that the restaurant acoustics are not great so it got loud and difficult to hear each other but at the same time created a lovely buzz.

The service was good and the staff knowledgeable about the dishes...

An inexpensive, excellent evening out...

What a cool name! Momo...Moma; Baohaus...Bauhaus? Get it? Anyway, it was noisy noisy noisy! So noisy you couldn't hear yourself think. It was slightly quieter at the bar where we sat - the only seats available. Here we watched surly staff fill the take-out orders. I expected the service to be terrible what with so many take-outs and the place so busy but surprisingly it was not! Yes - the dishes do come out at different times - it's the nature of tapas. So share - the portions are big. The firecracker prawns were absolutely delicious! The calamari good. Didn't have the bao- next time. And BYOB - they're not licensed.

The food was amazing - we shared a few starters and the plates were licked clean! We will definitely go back to start working through the delicious menu.

Very lively atmosphere.

Service needs to be improved.
