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 $37.50 each!

    Food was amazing and ambience was fabulous. Only downside was that it took us about 20-30 minutes to get our first drinks which was frustrating. Otherwise I would definitely go again.

    Table was pretty unsteady and needed some supports on the bottom. The table next to us had the water on the table and it fell off from the angle. Staff seemed run off their feet and it was pretty hard to get their attention. Food was alright, the menu should probably mention which food is marinated in chilli if you have dietry requirements.

    Booked for mums 70th birthday. Arrived on time for our booking. Was told to wait outside in the freezing cold cos our table wasn’t ready. 12 minutes later we finally got a table. 20 minutes later our drink order was taken. 10 mins later our food order was taken. That’s 42 mins of our 90 minute booking gone before we ate/drank anything. Took about 35 mins or so for mains to come out after our smalls. No one asked if we wanted more drinks. Food was, as always, exceptional. But the service left a lot to be desired.

    AMAZING!!! Honestly one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a long time, and a great pick for my 21st birthday dinner with friends. Got the FMN option and it’s a great amount of food to share with friends - if anything it’s too much food. Amazing value and will definitely be dining here again because all of the food was absolutely delicious. Memorable experience. Cocktails were yummy too! Thank you very much for a wonderful experience!

    Excellent service and even better food! Highly recommend the feed me menu! Staff were very understanding even though we were quite late to our booking due to heavy traffic - and were very kind to not hurry or chase us when we were towards the end of our booking time (managed to finish just in time!) Highly recommend : betel leaf with prawn, roast duck crisps, stick beef ribs (table favourite), crispy pork hock and pad thai. Will definitely be back!!

    Not many gluten free options. The tuna tartare and chicken skewers were the stand outs. Cocount curry and coconut rice too sweet. Salt and pepper silken tofu didn't quite work - too mushy.

    We got the feed me option for 6 and the waiters didn't explained what meals where delivered to us, lots of mix up with meals in general, wrong drinks delivered without an apology, and in the end we got overcharged by $60 as well.
