I like this place. Always a good place to start a night out. Not bad prices. Gets pretty busy. Large seating area which is always a plus. don't always have to pay to get in. Will come back here.

I had such a fun time at Kokos- reasonable price for drinks. We went out with the social. Bartenders were nice. It was a really busy period, still we got served in 3 minutes. They were flexible with everything- we could move the chairs, tables. The ladies was nice and clean.

I visited Koko's Café and Bar last night with a few friends. I got served straight away, I ordered a lager and some food. The Kingfisher was great and the menu choice is huge! I would recommend the curries (notably the Biryani) it was very authentic Indian cuisine. All staff are friendly and welcoming. It's a must visit in the... More

A friend recommended this place to me saying this was the best place that he had a curry in Cardiff. I was sceptical as it did not seem like a place that would be known as a good place for curries. Fortunately I was very wrong! The curries we tried were amazing, full of so much flavour, all of it... More

This place is smack in the middle of studentsville. The food is at best mediocre and the service haphazard. way better dining options literally within yards of this place. Its ok for a late drink though.
