This is a fave of mine as it's always delicious and a bit quirky. Lots of great options for just a quick snack and drinks or have a full assortment of loads of food. Has not disappointed anyone I have taken there! My fave dumplings are the cheeseburger and macaroni - sooo good! More

Vietnamese | Melbourne CBD, Inner City

We didn't have the opportunity to order the BBQ during this visit but I'll definitely return for that. The calamari, spring rolls, prawns, salad and tofu were amazing. The pancake was slightly dry and chewy and the fried rice was better than average but not amazing although the Tobico on top gives it an edge over other fried rice dishes I've tasted. The staff and service were exceptional. S any other BBQ point I'd suggest avoid Co Hanh if your heading out afterwards. The noise level was on the higher side although mostly due to one very happy & excited after work drinks table. Once they left it quietened down a lot. Overall grrat experience and I will deffs return. More

This is the best Mexican food I have had since moving to Australia from the USA. I have been to some "Mexican Restaurants" here in Aussie and food has been awful. Mamasita's food is flavorful and not overcooked. The dishes are simple, elegant, and caress the palate, not grab the throat. Lots of variety as well. I look forward to my next meal there! More
