Hochi Mama was the God Mother of all aspiring street artists and rappers in the early nineties. An immigrant in the big city, she hosted underground art shows along with rap battles for the rejects; a place where you could just be at home, but with family. The whole crew was always welcome, the more the merrier, and she was well renowned for creating innovative dishes using the original famous dishes from her home country, and plenty of booze, in her spacious and homey warehouse.

This cheeky, vibrant and buzzing Vietnamese Fusion venue is one for your to-do list. Boasting a killer menu and a super cool vibe, this place is known for a cocktail, feast or an intimate date night.

    As usual the food was very good. It was very noisy, but I knew that before going, so didnt have an issue with this. We arrived on time and ordered drinks which were slow to come. Food arrived quickly after ordering. After we had been there just over an hour, my son tried to order another drink. After 10 mins the waitress returned and said we couldnt have any more drinks because I time was up and they needed the table.

    A favorite that delivers every time. Food is always good in my opinion and the servings are very generous. Feed Me Now for dinner is a great option. Drink list is also great. Friendly happy service.

    Everything was great except the 10 kids on the big table behind us who smashed some glasses but can’t be helped. We will be back. Food is amazing and excellent value

    Meals brought out at all different times, people had to start their mains while others waiting for 10-15 mins for theirs. Had to ask for some dishes where they were. Cocktail was mainly all ice with a few sips of liquid. Very expensive curries for what was in them.
    Hochi Mama CBDResponded 6 days ago
    Thank you for your honest feedback Fiona. We do apologise for the delays in receiving your meals, and that you felt let down by the cocktails. This review will be passed back to venue management for their investigation and to see if we can't improve things for your next visit. We do hope to see you again soon.

    Cannot get enough of this place. The menu offers a delicious range of dishes catering to all dietary requirements. I can’t go past the sashimi king fish or betel leaf wrapped prawns.

    I have dined with my girlfriends and had a wonderful time. Ambience, food, service, vibe outstanding. Booked a pre theatre experience for my son and stepdad who attended Chicago. They concurred. My son said I never thought I would enjoy a bahn mi with a prawn pattie as he has avoided prawn in the past. Will be bringing my mum in the next month for your feed me now lunch menu.

    I had the best cocktail I’ve ever tasted in the Mandarin Queen! Very attentive staff delicious food. I started with Tuna Tartare, fresh and flavourful. My son had the Golden Child cocktail 🤪 and the Green tea Tofu Bao. We then shared the Sweet & Sour Vegan Duck, the Cashew Stir-Fry with crispy tofu and the Vegan Spring Rolls. I chose this restaurant as they had great vegan options and the didn’t disappoint. A wonderful start to a lovely evening!
