Like this cafe! Very casual and trendy, food been packaged to have very healthy feeling, no complaints. The only issue is the cafe nature of this set-up, it has character but again because of that, don't expect super services. Still a good place for hang out though.

I go to this restaurant about once a week. I still haven't gotten tired of it in a year as they add new dishes every once in a while, and you can customize them a little bit. Definitely the best smoothies in Beijing. I tried almost all the dishes and loved every single one of them. Healthy, but you're still pretty full as the portions are pretty big and the variety of ingrdients in one salad gets you stuffed well. The service is really fast and the pay-at-the-counter thing makes everything easy. Love this place

Healthy, fresh, tasty food with decent portions at reasonable price. Only problem is I eat here too often. Wish there were a few more specials or some rotation of menu. Great spot for lunch. Very casual. Think a good wagas or element fresh. But much nicer.

The place is cool and offer healthy packaged food. The power bowls are very appealing. Service is moderate as staff are friendly but not very forthcoming. Given its location, not a bad place to hang out but be prepared it will be crowded and staff will not be very attentive.

The venue is hip with low lighting and loud music. The espresso is pretty bad and not so many dessert choices beside waffle and crepes variations. It's nice for a date but just don't expect so much from the dessert or coffee taste.

This used to be a place I enjoyed going to for breakfast, lunch and dinner but since they removed table service I don't like it anymore. Staff are unhelpful unless you approach them at the counter and it now has a feeling of "get in, eat, get out". That being said the food is nice and there are good portion sizes but it's no longer a place I would suggest to friends to eat.

I must be missing something here. The food is only fair and overpriced. Service is awful. Waited one hour for a 50rmb bowl of rice. Caught waitress wondering around with bowl after watching her circle restaurant several time.

Great venue: on-point with hip, international design, and a sophisticated menu based on simple healthy ingredients, delivering a clean palette of tastes and textures. Most importantly, the coffee is excellent. On the flip-side, they let themselves down with a lack of table service. I go here regularly, but even when it is empty, and all the staff are standing around doing nothing, you have to get up and order at the counter, and pay up-front. Once you've settled in; are happily munching on your delicious wrap or rice bowl, and want another coffee, you have to get up and order (and pay), again. Wake up guys - I want to love you more, but I consider this an *epic fail* in basic customer service. Regardless - if you haven't tried this spot, get on down there!

Moka Bros has become the best reason for me to visit Sanlitun from my Gulou home. They serve healthy, fresh and very tasty food. Very unique combo in Beijing, I think! Very suitable for vegetarians and vegans too!! I've had their olive-dip (great!), bean dip (nice!), fresh juices (always good), goat's cheese and mushroom sandwich (very nice, although doesn't beat the one at Bocata), mozzarella salad (good) and more. The prices are very reasonable for Sanlitun-standards. The portions are good too! The only thing I like a bit less is the service. You need to order at the counter and the staff is not always very friendly. But well, in such a busy place that's very forgivable ; ) I really hope we'll see more places like this in Beijing!

Since i decided to get healthier Moka Bros is my number one choice for dinner, lunch or breakfast. I love their Kale smoothie, I almost addicted to it, find myself thinking about this smoothie constantly :-) haha Also love their Dr. Rice, it's my comfort food, if I don't feel well or feel down I always order it. Another favorite is artichoke, spinach and poached egg, I also always add salmon for additional RMB28. Very creamy, hearty and filling dish. If you are a early bird try to catch their breakfast, it starts at 8.00 till 10.30, I love their bronola and ham and omelette baguette, it comes with a bowl of sauteed mushrooms and tomatoes. Tough I can not say anything good about their desserts, tried most of them, cakes are not good, sweet crepes and waffles on the other side are really good.

The coffee here is standout delicious. One drawback is getting a seat can be just luck of the draw -- although the cafe is pretty large, it also gets really crowded. But go and get the green smoothie with avocado, kiwi and spinach. You will be happy. As was I.

Definitely trendy, however I can't say everything else was as impressive as the furnishings. Food (berry waffle) was fine, nothing that could be elaborated on though. Service went from good to bad. Impatient servers gave the impression you were putting them out by asking questions. Moka Bros is certainly not bad, and I'd return to sample more menu items. However, for its stylish layout, I was expecting something slightly better.

Hey, these guys offer brown rice. I like that. Brown rice is way healthier than white rice. Had the French onion soup (excellent), and a protein rush bowl which was also pretty good. This place isn't going to blow anyone away, but offering up healthy stuff is worthy of accolade on its own. Could be a regular spot for me. The 5-7pm happy hour gets you a glass of house wine for RMB30. Good deal.

Went here with a friend. Had to wait for a table. We split the curry chciken salad which was not very good at all. Couldn't find any chicken really. I had the red rice bowl with chicken and the hydrate smoothie. The red rice bowl was good, but I loved the smoothie and regretted not ordering a large. All in all a decent place. I'll have to try more menu items.

I was very excited to come check out the new place of the guys behind Mosto and Modo (pumped up by awesome reviews in CW). Took my husband and 3y.o daughter along. We liked funky,modern and stylish decor. Was hard to decide what to choose( especially for our kid). Would have loved to see more options for kids. We ordered thai curry tofu crepe and parma ham crepe. Food came very fast. Although, it didn't look very appealing( as most of the healthy food is), we put our bets it would be delicious. And to our great surprise, it wasn't. Parma ham crepes were stuffed with super spicy chunks of cheese( like seeing-sparks-spicy). My thai tofu crepe was cutely done as a pocket. But taste was quite plaine. Cheap chinese tofu too. Also, both crepes were hardly even warm:( For that price we did expect something more. I tried to smooth things out by ordering " Go bananas" crepes and couple of coffees to polish it off. They came suspiciously fast. They did look super delicious. But, sorry Moka Bros, they didn't live up to our expectations. And by that, I mean a special crispiness you expect to get when order waffles. Ours were chewy and..just warm. Bill was 215. Very, very steep for what we got. And we didn't even get the fancy options( like 65 RMB smoothies!!!) What I write maybe a bit harsh, but I do hope things could be improved. I will definetely come back, as I want to see this "child" grow up as successful, as it's older brothers( M&M).

I really enjoyed everything at my recent stop at Moka Bros. The crepe wraps was delicious as were our salads. My one recommendation would be to serve the salad dressing on the side, as at least one of our salads was made too salty by the extra dressing. Moka Bros is definitely one of the hipper and healthier options in Sanlitun now. I can't wait to go back.

I really love the decor here and the potential but the coffee is terrible. I ordered a low-fat cappuccino and got a massive cup of full cream milk with what must have been a dash of burnt coffee at the bottom. Just tasted like a baby would drink. Very Chinese style coffee and I had to just throw it out. It is a little shame but there are much better coffee places nearby. I think this is just all about showing off. On a Friday night the place was pretty empty but maybe just because is new.

Service was excellent. Coffee was burnt, bitter and the milk over heated. I don't understand cafés that go to all the effort of having quality food and great decor only to ruin it all by having UHT milk in coffee. With all the alternatives for fresh milk (Wonder, Sanyuan) it baffles me that a small cafe would use UHT. I liked the place but would not go back because of the coffee. Portion sizes were also very small.

The internet situation is untenable. Molasses-slow (even for China) and less reliable, it makes doing productive work here extremely difficult. I cannot load my email. Connecting to a VPN is like a faraway dream. Moka Bros is the ideal environment to arrive for lunch, work and snack throughout the afternoon and move on after downing one or two of their total-steal happy hour drinks. But the only way I can stay that long is if they fix the internet. Everything here I've ate or drank here is delightfully good–the red rice bowl is a total winner, the crepes are magnifique, alfajores and waffles legit to die for, strong well-brewed coffee and smoothies made with beets, tables ideal height for working. I can even (almost) overlook the platitudes marring the wall and ubiquitous filament lightbulbs.

Lovely place, great drinks, excellent coffee. The wrap I had was delicious, however the onion soup was sweet, so not to my taste. I really love onion soup, so my heart was broken. However, I am even more disappointed that no-one one asked why I didn't eat the soup. Broken-hearted and left feeling like no-one cared. Apart from that, service was good, and the food & coffee are definitely worth a re-visit. I would recommend that the restaurant get rid of those black plates, as you can see everyones' fingerprints all over them. I prefer not to have visual reminders of how many hands go near my food.
