- Expensive

4.3

Mokka’s all about ‘fusion’ - with African décor and a menu that jumps all over the world.

I’d say that Mokka is the best of the several eateries that have cropped up near [node:173318] in recent years. Its interior is bold in style and the menu is similarly inventive; however, it’s not cheap.

Food and drink

You’ll find few more imaginative menus in Budapest, the dishes draw on (and ‘fuse’) Asian, African and European influences. The selection changes seasonally and the quality is generally good, although I’ve been told of misses alongside the hits (notably overcooked poultry main courses).

Recommended dishes

The tapas platter starter (you choose six dishes) is excellent.

Ambience

The low-lit restaurant takes Africa for its muse, with dramatic wooden masks on the ochre-coloured walls. It all feels pretty slick and funky.

Service

The service is top class.

Location

It's very central - standing just round the corner from St Stephen’s Basilica.

Price advice

A meal at Mokka can be expensive. Set three- and four-course menus range between 9,000 forints and 11,000 forints. If you go à la carte, you’ll find starters average 3,000 forints, mains 4,500 forints and tapas dishes are 600-1,000 forints. You can get chicken breast quesadillas for a fairly reasonable 3,000 forints, but the tenderloin steak with goose liver and coffee-flavoured mushrooms will set you back over 6,000 forints.
