Been there many times. It's always delicious. there is a long shared table down the middle and smaller tables to the side. Booking is recommended. I've eaten there numerous time and never had a bad meal. Everything is good!

Went here before the Swans game, waitress was very nice and food was good. But she asked if we wanted sparkling or still water.. I replied regular and she charged us $7 for still water. Definitely shady price gouging.

Cute, quirky restaurant. Nice food, with a great selection of dishes. The food was priced appropriately. Most of the dishes we ordered were very nice, although the pork buns were 80% thick dough - not nice. Overall it was a fun experience with nice food,...More

Fantastic food of a similar standard to high end Sydney Asian restaurants but much cheaper. Great dumplings, duck pancakes, sashimi platter, delicious greens and an amazing beef dish! Extremely reasonable good quality sake, excellent service, funky fit-out and relaxed, vibey atmosphere. What more could you...More

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!
