Delicious and good value. Would definitely go back again.
Great food and service as usual, one of my favourite restaurants and they didn’t disappoint.
Delightful! A gem!
Very accommodating for dietary requirements.
Our waiter was so welcoming and ensured we were always happy and served promptly! Our food came at a very quick pace which was great and it all tasted amazing! Highly recommend 👌🏽
Order was never processed to start with. Waited over an hour to receive nothing but Philip noticed from the bar and saved the day.
Great food and service. Very quick value for money spot on
The food and service as always was amazing!! i love coming here, was a bit surprised that the seating time was only an hour and 15mins. Apart from that was amazing will be back very very soon :)
Lovely, the wait staff were interesting. Food was amazing. Quick too!
We were initially greeted and seated
by one waitress at 6:45pm and were advised we had a 90 minute sitting from when we sat down. The food was delivered quickly and was delicious but we were served by a different waitress who made us feel rushed and made our dining experience less enjoyable. 50 minutes into our supposed 90 minute sitting she told us we had 10 minutes left of our booking and that we needed to leave... we were out of the restaurant at only 60 minutes into our booking.
I have dined at Ho Chi Mama a number of times but this was a very disappointing experience. Although I have raved about my previous dining experience here, this time round I'd say the food is wonderful but don't think I could speak highly about the service we had...
Food was lovely and came out super fast, great value for money
Good variety on the menu.. tastes great.. reasonably priced..loved the massaman curry n cashew chicken stir fry..
Food was amazing didn't not enjoy the 9.00pm sit when we had to order by 9.30pm.Couple of us ran late so I was constantly under pressure from the staff to place orders by 9.30.when 9.25 rolled around we were told we must order as kitchen is about to close.Being under pressure I over ordered,making sure I didn't under order.boys were not happy with $1000 bill.
This was my second time and was pretty disappointed since the first time was amazing.
4 of us had the table for 75min, which we understand, however they came to us every 10 min telling us to leave or nudging is to leave.
Would’ve been better if in the last 10-20min you let us know instead of bugging us and ruining the mood.
The usual taking plates away when we weren’t finished and just making us uncomfortable for our 75min.
It was an expensive and uncomfortable experience
Delicious food with full flavours. Friendly service.
Super delicious food, amazing tasting and looking drinks, really friendly service, the vibe was so nice, really artsy and colourful interior. Food came out super quick, close to 5 mins after we ordered the food started coming out.
Great food, great service, great location and no complaints. Special props to the guy wearing the shirt with watermelons on it, love it hehe
Friendly staff, good atmosphere, food was average.
Great service, and great food. Super happy with how fast the staff cleaned the tables and let us into our booking. Great little waiting area, super impressed by the food - plates are perfect for sharing for all group sizes.
Food was amazing, cocktails aswell and cant wait to go back thanks!!
It is absolutely value for money and complete deliciousness!
Always happy with the food, service and ambience of HoChi Mama. The banquet deal is such great value for money and an excellent option if you want to share the generous mains. The Golden Gaytime ice cream with the donut-like bao is an absolute treat.
Great food and ambience. Asian fusion with a kick of spice.
The food was next level and reasonably priced! The staff were so friendly and knowledgeable. Our waitress helped us pick all our choices as we were being extremely indecisive because everything looked amazing! The bao is a must try. We will definitely be back. 10/10
great cocktails delicious food excellent service. one of our favourite places to eat in the city can’t wait to go back thank you ho chi mama 😊
Great food and awesome vegan options in addition to non-vegan.
Waiting staff could be a little more friendly and attentive, not bad but not something to rave about.
One of my favourite asian-fusion restaurants in Melbourne, highly recommended.
Great selection of delicious food. Awesome service and atmosphere
I love this place. Staff are very knowledgeable and friendly, the food is delicious and good cocktails too.
Overall the experience was great however the only thing we noticed that was unpleasant was the service as staff seemed to be constantly watching us but will definitely back
Amazing food! The service wasn’t that great, a 10 person table arrived well after my 2 friends and I did and they got seated almost straight away, while we had to wait a good 15 minutes for a table (with a booking).
Would definitely recommend the Pad Thai, it is soo delicious! The coconut rice is also a winner. It is so creamy and tasty. Will be coming back
Excellent service, let us take our food home with us as we weren’t able to finish it in the allocated 1 hour dining time. Service was excellent
My go to place in Melbourne, love the food and atmosphere. Very reasonable
Great food and friendly service. Will surely come back for more.
Delicious food, incredible cocktails, relaxed aatmosphere and fun staff. Couldn't fault our casual team dinner at Hochi Mama's. Will be back for sure!
Would definitely visit again, food was sensational
Very nice! Had a lovely date!
Great vibe and food, just watch the spice level on some dishes for those that are weak to chilli!
Had a booking for six people inside at 7pm. This was an eighty minute seating. Arrived early and told to walk down the street at return later. Finally seated at twenty past seven outside which was not our preference.
At eight pm given a ten minute warning that our seating was to be finished at 20:10. This was before all the main had even arrived on the table and one of the starters was still not out. Complained that we were seated late so we should still have our 80 mins.
Told we could leave at 20:30. All mains and delayed starter arrived by 20:15. Given our warning five minutes later.
Rushed with bill.
Poor to very poor evening despite the tasty food.
The food is delicious every time and it’s great value for money - we love the ‘me hungry now deal’!
However, sad to say we were disappointed with the service during our last visit. We had to request cutlery, napkins, dessert menus and they never checked in with us to see how we were going. We had to constantly wave down a waiter for top ups of drinks and side dishes etc. Would have expected more considering the limited dining capacity atm.
But.... we’ll still be back for the food 😋
Had the best time food was delicious staff were lovely! Couldn’t recommend it more
I loved it! I keep thinking about the fried chicken! Was amazing food! Highly recommend
Food came out incredibly fast and was so delicious, staff were super lovely and helpful, and for the money I paid I cant believe how good the food was. Heaps of really good vegan options too.
