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.

    Restaurant would not let customers in until 12PM on the dot. I think it’d be fair enough since they don’t officially open till 12PM. But, a little bit of flexibility wouldn’t go astray on a wet and cold wintry day. There were at least 10 customers waiting to be let in at 11:55AM cause we were all cold and wet. Ambience was not great, if you’re there for a date because it can get really noisy. Three ladies sat next to our table and literally screaming of their lungs. I could feel my ear drums were about to pop. As soon as all our dishes had arrived we couldn’t wait to get our bill and run out of the restaurant. Lucky their saving grace was their decent sized and OK tasting food.

    We're very sorry to hear about your recent visit- it certainly sounds like the strict opening time and noisy atmosphere affected your dining experience. We appreciate your feedback and will take it into consideration for improvements in the future. We're glad you enjoyed the food, despite the challenges and smoothness of your experience, and we hope to see you again soon to provide you with a more welcoming and relaxed meal.

    Fantastic food, delivered to our table quickly and hot. Substantial serving sizes and really friendly efficient staff. Fantastic service. I was surprised with a birthday’s cake and a beautiful rendition of Happy Birthday from our server! I would highly recommend a visit to this restaurant and we will be back for sure, next time we’re in Melbourne.

    My friend and I loved our meals and the outstanding service! We enjoyed chicken satay sticks and prawn tepanyaki so good! The main meals were incredible, the Hanoi pork curry and red duck were delicious and the curry sauces were best I’ve tasted. I would love the restaurant to turn down the music to help diners be able to converse more easily. The background music went from being enjoyable to being a distraction to a conversation so we left. Great food and service and i will be back for sure
