Good Vegetarian Options
This restaurant is permanently closed.

Mama Rumaan offers authentic Middle Eastern cuisine. For those who can't decide what to have or are new to the culture there are choices of a five-course or seven-course meal that is selected by the chef. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options are clearly marked on the menu for easy identification. Start out with a small dish like the lamb kibbeh, Sabah's Egyptian Falafel or roast pumpkin bourani. Mama Rumaan offers larger portions dishes like the Masgouf (fish fillets), Qouzi (slow-cooked lamb shoulder) and beef Kavurma (beef, cumin, lemon, chili potatoes and peppers). Beverages include red and white wines as well as several non-alcoholic drinks such as Uludag green apple, uludag peach, espresso, cappuccino and several selections of teas.

Mama Rumaan offers both lunch and dinner for pick-up and delivery. The process has been streamlined by the online order form.

SUPER delicious food, great service, and a nice chilled atmosphere. Only downside is it's not that easy to navigate to the restaurant in the area (some obvious signage near the main footpath would be great). Numerous vegan options that are not just an afterthought. Great place to visit before the footy at Marvel stadium, easy walking distance.

Food was good, but service was very average. Took a long time to receive drinks after ordering. Two meals came out, last one was 3-4 minutes later

My most recent experience wasn't positive. I booked a table for lunch. Our group arrived on time and ordered our meals. 45 minutes passed, we were told it would only be another 5 minutes until our meals arrived. After an hour had passed and only the side salads had been served, we unfortunately had to leave the restaurant as we needed to go back to work. I strongly suggest the prioritisation of meals for restaurant customers rather than Uber Eats orders. Please communicate with your customers.

We went to Mama Rumaan for a work team Christmas lunch, and we did the smaller "feed me" menu. We had one person who was a vegetarian and this was no issue. We got a huge amount of food, we sadly couldn't get through about 1/4 of it! It was great value for money, and every course was delicious, it is by far the best restaurant in the docklands! Service was also very friendly and speedy. Could not fault our experience.

Went for a birthday celebration and was pleasantly surprised by atmosphere after off-putting conditions on booking (you may be placed at a shared table and will be expected to leave within 2 hours) but it was relaxed, not crowded (Wed evening) and food and service were great.

I went to Mama Rumaan with a group of friend and had an amazing experience! Service was good and the staff was kind. They were very accommodating to vegetarians and vegans. Everything is clearly indicated on the menu and made things easy. The food was so delicious. Everyone enjoyed the meal and would eat there again any time. Mama Rumaan is a hidden gem in Docklands!

Overall a very good dining experience and came back for a second time within a week!

The Ramadan menu was fantastic and great value for money. The only slight downside was being asking if we wanted alcohol with our Ramadan menu, however the waiter was young (obviously inexperienced).

Would still definitely recommend to others.

We dined at Mama Rumaan for Mothers Day lunch and it was fabulous! They were so accommodating of our food requirements and children. Their service was second to none! They served up amazing food that everyone was very happy with and even gave us baklava on the house! Yummo! I will be back here for sure and cannot recommend this place highly enough!
