Hochi Mama

5 reviews
$40 and under
Hochi Mama was the God Mother of all aspiring street artists and rappers in the early 90's. 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 renown 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. Our ‘Me Hungry Now’ deal priced at $34.50 per person allows for a great value dining experience; everything is designed to be shared, meaning you can order a hell of a lot of food and get a taste of everything.

The scene is quite loud and energetic, but the food was good, the service was fast, and the cocktails were creative.

Food was brilliant, the larger options are terrific. Service was quite poor; manager was not handling customers well and had little to no control over her staff. Although the waiters on the floor were polite and attentive. Just needs some more stable management to be a top quality restaurant.

It took quite a while before any waiter or waitress came to take our order. Prior to this, they had already messed up our drink order. It's as if they were avoiding our table. When our food did arrive, one of the waiters could barely tell us what dishes he was carrying, telling us that our Bahn Mi was a pork dish and confusing many others. Everyone started eating each other's dishes because of this confusion. Drink orders were forgotten and one persons main meal was completely left out.

Ambiance was nice, and everyone was pleased with the food, (even though we barely ate the food we ordered due to the confusion), but service needs some serious work.

Couldn't recommend HoChi Mama for groups. Perhaps they're more attentive to smaller tables.

Won't be back.

Good ambience and very attentive service. We requested another table and the staff went out of their way to accomodate us. Live the vibe and feel of the place.

Food was great abd service was excellent! Only downside was the chair in the small tables as you can't move the chair inside the table, hence was slightly uncomfortable.
