I booked for a work lunch and the food was amazing! Loved everything that was brought out and would recommend to anyone. The music was a little bit loud and had to raise my voice to speak but otherwise excellent.

Food and venue was excellent. Asked to wait outside before being seated and waited about 10min before we went in and asked again and then we’re seated straight away. Not sure what that was about but otherwise meals were great.

Beautiful fresh colourful food. Delicious pear cocktail. I’d suggest you need to not mind a bit of chili to eat here! Staff were great. The only down side is the 90 min to eat is a bit short, but I fully understand the need to turn the tables at the moment.

The service was the only bad thing about our time here. I love hochi mamma and have been multiple times this is the first time that my family from Sydney have been and they loved the food. My Dad can’t stop talking about it!

The soft shell crab fried rice is amazing get 2 for your table at least!

The fried chicken Bao is amazing as is the pork these are such staples. Seriously amazing food every-time.

Amazing vibes of the restaurant as well.

However, I had a booking for 8:30 and arrived at 8;30 and was told to wait as table wasn’t ready which is fine. However, no one came and got us for a maybe 15 mins so I queued up again and then was seated at our table. Then after about 10 minutes no one had brought us menus they eventually did after I asked. Then we ordered and food arrived took maybe 25 minutes so not bad at all as restaurant was so busy. However, no one had given us plates/ cutlery so all this food arrived on the table and no way to eat it. So I got up and asked the hostess she ran and immediately got plates etc. so it was just frustrating to have to keep asking but as soon as I asked for things they came- it was a super busy night at the restaurant but everyone was very friendly.

We were seated outside and the heaters were so warm which was great as it was a cold night.

This is the first time I had experienced having to ask for things repeatedly like this and I think it’s a Covid situation. I will be returning and I would 10000% Recommend still coming to eat here. The staff couldn’t have been nicer when each situation came up.

Was great, just the Octopus in the Saigon Salad was unfortunately really chewy and rubbery, it tasted pretty old. But everything else was great, good value for money and the staff do a great job (felt sorry for the host as she was absolutely slammed, doing everything)

Good food, however it was warm (not hot), server was very helpful. Unfortunately we were cold the entire time. Sat inside with all windows open and only one inside heater on, the breeze was very cold. Most people also had their jackets on.

Also disappointed in the peppermint tea - only tea bags which can be bought for $5 from Woolies. Expect a higher standard from a Melbourne restaurant.
