This used to be one of my favourite restaurants in the area for special occasions however after going recently I will never return. The quality of the food has gone so far down hill and the service was atrocious. The edamame came to us straight...More

Definitely worth a visit, the food was incredible. The fish dumplings are a must have, melt in your mouth with the kick of the chili oil.

Our menu is based on the famed Taiwanese Night Street Markets, with a creative Japanese streak & a hot lick of Sichuan Pepper. Mamasans' Gemma was born in a remote Taiwanese fishing village & grew up in Japan before coming to Australia. Australian food culture is too young to have it’s own national cuisine - but there is no denying our love Asian food!
