Reservations for a birthday dinner were professionally taken by Henry and we enjoyed very attentive service from Alice. Hubby enjoyed the meal recommendations as well as his birthday desert which was accompanied by some excellent singing by the Soko team. We'll definitely be back!

Hey Joy there is a lovely verandah area at the back that can have at least 50 people. I'm sure that would be enough for a Baby Shower

Description
'SOKO,' meaning market in Swahili, focuses on using the finest organic ingredients and seasonally inspired produce to offer an exciting interpretation of classic dishes with a touch of progressive gastronomy. The daylight-flooded, restaurant with its cutting edge design, warm amber tones, private dining roundel and sublime terrace is the perfect venue for an upscale business lunch, a get together of a romantic dinner for two. The end result is an international and eclectic menu in an equally striking setting.
