After being the ‘life-of-the-party’ in downtown CBD for the last six years, Mama’s ready to kick-start another exciting new venture in the wild, wild East! And where better for this Tiger Mama to roar than the vibrant South-East Asian hub of flavour and culture that is Swan Street, Richmond!

Mama's second-coming will be servin' you Eastside excellence! – but this sequel is just as good as the original!

We’re beyond ecstatic to share this new space with the public and bring the Richmond tiger cubs some of Mama’s lovin’!

The trademark of Mama’s dining experience is the ‘Feed Me Now’ offering! Patrons can bask in all the zingy and fiery flavours in Mama’s repertoire – indulging in a selection of our drool-worthy smaller, larger, and sides dishes – for an affordable spend per diner at $39.50 each!

    Hochi Mama was excellent! The feed me menu is such great value for money, the food was delicious. The only minor issue was that there was no room for us inside even with a booking, but honestly that’s a testament to how good it is. Would recommend!

    Whilst the food was generally delicious , the service was at best chaotic. Many different wait staff & constant mix-ups with our wine order. 3 incorrect bottles opened & brought to the table, then a glass when our order was for a bottle! Finally the correct wine but overall not very professional. The beef rice paper rolls were also very oddly salty & unpleasant. We were then rushed out even though we’d sat down late whilst waiting.for previous table guests to leave.

    Amazing as always! We were running late to arrive (domino into running late for the footy), so I asked if our food could be rushed out. The waitress was so accommodating and got the food out ASAP Rocky! We made it to the game just on the death-nal! It was hugely appreciated. Can't fault the food. Those Bahn Mi sliders are too die!

    The Feed Me option is great value. The ambiance is a vibe and the food comes out looking fantastic. We found the 1.5 hour seating time to be slightly rushed but can understand the reason behind this. Would always recommend.

    Hochi Mama is like J-Lo, has been around for a while, but is effortlessly smoking hot every single time. Brilliant night, would of stayed longer and bought more drinks and food if there wasn’t another table waiting for ours! Great place.

The atmosphere was buzzing, yet we could still hold a conversation at our table. The wait staff were friendly, helpful and PATIENT!!! I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Great food and atmosphere but a disappointing start. Our table wasn’t ready when we arrived for a 8:15 booking and we had to stand out on the street in the freezing cold like idiots waiting for 25 mins. The manager advised that it was policy they couldn’t rush people off tables when they were still eating then why have 1.5 hours seatings?! Allow more time between bookings!!! We are so spoilt for choice in Richmond. I’m not sure I’ll be back!

    Food was phenomenal. But a 1 and 1/2 sitting to eat entree, main and have a few drinks was ridiculous. Never had to eat food so quick in my life and didn’t even give us time to enjoy the restaurant. They began clearing our table before we were even finished and I had to pack up the rest of food in takeaway containers. It was pretty obvious they just wanted people in and out for maximum financial gain. Staff were incredibly nice on the other hand.

    Although the dinner it’s self was great, unfortunately the service was not. We had a booking that was meant to be 90 minutes, however started getting told to finish up at the 70 minute mark. We had multiple waiters rush us and make us feel uncomfortable and like we were a bother to serve. We tried to order dessert and were denied any attempt, as the “kitchen was getting slammed” and having dessert was not an option. We had waiter after waiter shove eftpos machines in our face whilst at the table and honestly it was very poor service. Very unfortunate, as Hochi MaMa is one of our favourite restaurants, and now, this experience has put us off wanting to come again.

    When we arrived, our table was not ready (which I understand as the people before us were eating and enjoying themselves; however, this cut our time down, and we were given a 12 min time check until we had to vacate. Our table was half set, and meals came out with no cutlery. We waited for 5 minutes to get someone's attention, but this did not happen. We ended up having to pinch another table's cutlery. At our 12 min time check, we had to take the rest of the food with us because there was not enough time to eat and enjoy. Yet again, we felt rushed and pushed out. Please look into longer seatings and ensure your waiters and waitresses are on their designated tables.
