We chose the Feed me menu for dinner. The food was tasty however, we were served 2 different type of salads. I thought this was odd as it’s winter and was a chilly 3 degrees outside and not really salad eating weather. The staff were super friendly and the service was good.

We arrived at 2000 with our two young daughters for dinner. The helpful staff took us to the back of the restaurant where it was a bit quieter and really looked after us. I can’t remember the lady’s name but she was great and helpful with proposing some mocktails for our girls and food that they would like. Bar staff were great also that they went to great efforts to make something our young girl’s would like. Thanks team.

Great vibe but the servers got our order wrong and then argued with us when they brought out food we hadn’t asked for. Mixed reviews for the food but the drinks were delicious.

Make sure you leave a lot of time for the feed me menu. We were there for an hour and half and they only had brought out 4 of the 8 small share dishes. We had to leave and they wouldn’t off we any discount or vouchers.

Love Kokomos for their cocktails, they are always spot on.
Food is quiet interesting and small. Not the food you would expect from a place that looks tropical.

Excellent service, delicious food (especially the 8-course "feed me" menu), fun setting and comfortable booths. Maybe a bit noisy, but good 70's-80's music, and reasonable prices, so overall highly recommended!

Came here for my birthday dinner, not a good place for a date night. Food is ordinary and the service was horrendous. At one point it took 30 mins for a cocktail to come. They did give me a free drink but still. Wouldn’t recommend for a date night dinner

1. Bar staff = rubbish. Stood there for around 20mins waiting to be served, the bar staff saw that we stood there waiting, but proceeded to serve people who arrived at the bar after us.
2. Food came out cold and didn't taste great.

My advice, choose somewhere else. Or, come once you've had a few drinks so you don't see the chaos.

The grilled cheese (Saigon cheese) can be thinner so the flavour won't be too rich. The portion can be bigger. The oil on the kimchi fried chicken tastes more like szechuan chill oil rather than kimchi. The flatbread can be more tasty.

The foods was Very quick and service was good. The down side is they keeps coming over to remind you to be quick(not saying directly but keep on checking) so you don’t feel relax to enjoy. I constantly had to check my phone for the time which is quite annoying.

Food was very disappointing and over priced.

I haven't been for a while to eat but the cost the food was expensive and not worth what we paid. $9 ea for 1 kebab. The menu changed and was very cheaply done. Drinks were fine.

As first time visitors we selected a variety of dishes to share. Evie, our waitress for the evening helped us with our selections and we were impressed with the choices and Evie’s great attention to us and other parties.
The food was delicious and we will most definitely return to try more dishes and experience Kokomo’s uniqueness.

We planned a girls weekend to Canberra purely to return to Kokomo’s for a meal. The new menu is truly inspired and every dish we had was delicious. And that Blu-Tang Clan cocktail will win my heart every time!

Food was great, cocktails superb and the waitress looking after our table was attentive and friendly. Score would have been higher, but we were served a dish with nuts after being told it had no nuts. My wife has an allergy/intolerance to nuts and so she had a nasty reaction. We mentioned this to the staff at the beginning of the meal and to be fair they were quick to inform us of their mistake. Still things could have been a lot worse if the allergy were more severe. This needs to be better managed.

Always love going to Kokomo's! Great food, service and especially love the cocktails.
The music is slightly too loud during the dinner service though, or maybe I'm getting old haha

We tried the 'bottomless bellini brunch'. While the bellinis were great and the staff were happy to keep bringing them, the food was disappointing. Five courses - the first two were small snacks served on the same type of cracker. The ceviche one was nice but the other was jus small cubes of carrot and fetta - not a lot of flavour. Then fried chicken, fried eggplant and fries - so overall quite greasy.

The best restaurant I went to in Canberra! The food was incredible and tasty for $49pp for the feed me set menu. The venue was fun. I would definitely go back again. I rated it better than Pilot, which I also went to in Canberra.

Recommended set menu - apart from 2 of the courses, the other 5 courses were pure fat and/or deep fried.
