Service and food at Hochi Mama is terrific. Share between two was a huge amount of food for a moderate price. All food is tasty and so fresh as you’d expect with Vietnamese food. ❤️
Make sure you are hungry before you go. The food is amazing and there is a lot of it, especially if you do the feed me.
Outstanding service, everyone felt welcomed. Didnt wait for food even though restaurant was busy. Heaps of great dishes. Catered for Vegetarian. Overall 10/10
Absolutely brilliant! No faults! One of the best meals I’ve ever had!
Food is amazing! The only reason for a 4/5 rating is we found it very hard to order drinks or get staff attention. We were booked for an early lunch (12pm) and there wasn't many people in the restaurant, service started out great but after the first round of drinks and ordering, we weren't able to get anyone's attention to order more (we were sitting at the front of the bar, near the window and felt this area was a little ignored). They were very polite and apologetic but it did limit our spend here as a consequence.
We arrived at 6.05, so for be minutes late. The second member of staff to come to our table talked us out of having the set menu we wanted because we had to leave by 8pm. This was dreadful service and put us on edge. I understand the stress that working to rigid two-hour deadlines can bring about, but hurrying us along when we had over an hour and a half of our booking to go was unacceptable.
It took almost 30 minutes for drinks to arrive. Again, totally unacceptable. But the absence of communication compounded the issue: if you say you are understaffed in the bar and drinks may take a while I believe people would understand. I certainly would, and would make those with me were patient.
The food was outstanding, however, and was so good I’d come again. If the service was as poor next time I wouldn’t come again.
Fusion food great quality and presentation. Drinks were missed, but we reordered. Restaurant was busy, a little understaffed. Atmosphere great, music perhaps one level down. Salmon sashimi a bit thin, otherwise all meals filling.
Absolutely loved my experience at Hochi Mama, the staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful and the food was just AMAZING! My friend and I got a completely vegan dinner (5 dishes) and each of them was ridiculously delicious. Will definitely be coming back!
Food was superb and plenty of it in the banquet.
Service was great even though it was busy. Food portioning can be a little better.
Food was amazing and the cocktail choices were great
Very fast service to keep the turnaround quick. They dont let you stay a minute over your timeslot of 90min per booking.
Food was very tasty and good portions.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Everything we ate was delicious. Good value for money
Food was really tasty. (Extra words inserted here to reach form's word minimum)
Great restaurant, very friendly staff. The little things were done well, plates cleared in good time , table water upon arrival, answered questions about menu. Clean and tidy. Food was good, didn’t blow us away but definitely a solid meal. Very reasonable priced. The cocktails are amazing. 6 stars for the drinks.
The vegetarian/vegan options and the cocktails were delicious, we got the feed me menu for 2 people and it was a lot of food, struggled to finish so really good value for money. Next time I'd get 1 small and 2 large plates.
loved the food. great value for money and the servers were so nice!
Great food, great service and cater brilliantly for food sensitivities!
The best Lamb korma on the planet. In fact, every dish was superb.
The food was burnt and salty! Second time I have been my first experience was great thts why I went again but so disappointed :(
This restaurant is an event all on its own. The service was outstanding and The flavours dance in your mouth.
Definitely will be back.
We had a quick dinner before a theatre show. It was fabulous!! We did the feed me menu. Food delicious. Delicious cocktails and the atmosphere helped us get in the right mood to go to the show. Our waiter “Tee” was terrific! Very helpful. Would go again!
The food was beautiful, service was outstanding and the cocktails were lovely. Will definitely visit again.
Southern tofu curry every time! Best food in Melbourne
Great food - you couldn't go wrong eating here 👌
We were sat outside, a little windy but there's nothing you can do about that in Melbourne haha. Beautiful day, and was lovely and warm when the sun was overhead.
We had to prompt for service every time we needed something, we weren't waited on. BUT the restaurant was packed so important to acknowledge the servers were run off their feet. They did serve us immediately every time we were asked, and they were wonderful and friendly.
Food was fantasic, a little bit expensive - presentation was fantastic and as you'd expect for the price.
No complaints here, can't wait to go back!
I loved it - the food was so nice and really filling I struggled to fit it in. Can recommend the green tea bao and pad Thai.
We would have liked a longer sitting though before we knew it we had to leave.
The food is always so delicious, staff are professional and kind. Great food, great service and the feed me now deal is so reasonable! I’m a regular and shall continue to come here often :)
Amazing cocktails and service!
another delicious meal with excellent service can’t wait to go back !
The food was spectacular
Great food and cocktails. Perfect for before a show. Quick service
The mains came all at different times like 5 min difference each, there wasn’t music after the life music
Food was absolutely delicious, reasonable priced and staff friendly and efficient.
Hochi Mama is a great place to go for a good feed and cocktails that will satisfy you. The food and drinks were a little pricy but worth it for the quality. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a nice Asian dinner with good vibes.
Food was soo tasty and the service was good. We were served quickly once seated and encouraged to get the deal as better value for money. Could not even pick a favorite dish out of everything we had and definitely will visit again to try everything else!
Good food and nice atmosphere
We booked for outside but were offered a table indoors which was great. Our waitress was efficient and friendly and the food was excellent.
Music was slightly too loud, it was hard to hear within a group of six. Great food and would definitely come again.
