Krakatoa menu is new and needs work. Some dishes great, some OK and some did not work at all. The Tempura oyster needs to be paired with something else. Not much fat on pork belly but lacking in flavour. The Tapioca dessert was also lacking in flavour.
The service was fabulous right from the booking and communication before arrival, dealing with Gluten and Lactose free and on the night. Big thumbs up to how the restuaurant is run and to the staff. Thumbs up to the chef for how the food intolerances were dealt with. I hope this menu is improved as the venue is excellent. Don't go if you want quiet.

The background playlist is hard to enjoy. I heard timomatic’s “set it up”. This is trash there was a lot of other b grade pop songs I dislike. I think the lame playlist doesn’t match the cool venue.
The food and staff was amazing!! ❤️

Fantastic opening night and great to have a degustation with a cocktail flight rather than wine. The food was innovative and true to an Indonesian style. The Pandan icecream is divine.

Annoying that while we arrived on time (5 mins early) to our 8pm booking, we had to line up until 8:20pm while everyone was scanned in. However, after missing this major time at the start of our booking, we were still required to leave at 9.45. Service at the bar was slow, meaning we were only able to fit 2 rounds of cocktails in during this time, and felt too rushed to order the food we were planning on getting. Would like to see improvements with the entry system so we don't feel as rushed during our booking.

Looove Kokomos - great selection of cocktails + mocktails.
Great place to go for a drink or some share plates.
I do wish the full vegan menu was still running though - the selection is limited.

It was good but annoying to have to go to the bar every time we wanted a drink even when we were dining and eating dinner. The lines were very long as well so we had to stand for a while. Food was delicious and we loved the drinks!

We were seated quickly for our booking but then found out we'd been spread across two tables which wasnt ideal since it was birthday event but we dealt with it. We were seated and not really given any info on how to order/ menu. we looked it up online ourselves and waited to for some one to take an order. Eventually we spoke to the bar staff and found out we had to order at the bar. painful but again we dealt. food took 30/40 minutes to arrive and it was ok, not amazing for the price but not awful. by the time the last of our food arrive at our table one of the staff told us we had 5 minute to finish as they needed the table back. We ended up not finishing our food and sculling our drinks so we didn't impact another guests night but overall a pretty average evening. I understand the need for booking times to maximize patrons in the venue during these weird times and completely support that however if you are going to do this i would advise that maybe guests are told how to order/ food is brought in a reasonable time and that you aren't standing in a line 15 deep to place a food order while staff are trying to make drinks and take food orders at the same time. Just seems like you haven't really worked out how to make your business model work and for that I will probably go elsewhere for special events in future as we didn't really feel any warmth or interest in our patronage.

I love Kokomo's and I would normally rate it a 5/5, however this past weekend they were not on their game.

The service arrangement seems to have changed over the last couple of weeks as we were required to order our food at the bar instead of receiving table service and an explanation of how the menu works.

We had a booking for 6pm and the restaurant was not terribly busy. After sitting at our table for 15 minutes with no attention paid by the staff buzzing around, we called out to a server and asked if we needed to order our food from the bar. He confirmed that we did "because of Covid". Im unclear as to whether this is the actual reason, as I was at Kokomo's just a couple of weeks ago and received (excellent) table service. Also, I would have thought that having a bunch of people crowded around a bar at the same time was more of a covid risk, but I am not a health expert.

My order was taken by a member of the bar staff who didnt seem too thrilled to have to take food orders, and was ultimately pretty short and sharp during our interaction. I will say that I was surprised as all of their staff are usually very welcoming and lovely.

The food was pretty good overall. The tigerprawn spring rolls, beef buns and the fries were fantastic, & the barramundi and the satay chicken were nice but not amazing.

As always, the place had a good vibe and the front-of-house staff were great.

Yes, I would definitely recommend Kokomos to anyone as my experiences here have been consistently good, this past Saturday seems to have been an anomaly (but still worth mentioning).

Kokomos has quickly become one of my favourite venues. The atmosphere, food, service and drinks are all amazing. The value for money is also second to none. We did the Bottomless Bellinis and felt spoilt with delicious food and cocktails for two hours. I also got engaged at Kokomos so it will also be a special place to me :)

The food and drinks are incredible! Our only reason for not giving 5 stars for service is the food comes out all at once, and for dinner for 2 it adds a bit of pressure to eat it all quickly before it gets cold!
