Hochi Mama was the God Mother of all aspiring street artists and rappers in the early nineties. An immigrant in the big city, she hosted underground art shows along with rap battles for the rejects; a place where you could just be at home, but with family. The whole crew was always welcome, the more the merrier, and she was well renowned for creating innovative dishes using the original famous dishes from her home country, and plenty of booze, in her spacious and homey warehouse.

This cheeky, vibrant and buzzing Vietnamese Fusion venue is one for your to-do list. Boasting a killer menu and a super cool vibe, this place is known for a cocktail, feast or an intimate date night.

    The team were doing their best but I suspect they were under staffed. Also the 1.5 hour sitting was not long enough and we were not able to order desert. Food was excellent but the overall experience was a bit disappointing.

    My friends, on a first visit to Hochi Mama, enjoyed the Feed Me menu which was imaginatively provided to us (we asked for the selection to be made on our behalf) with the usual friendly and efficient service.

    We went for a pre-show dinner on Sunday. They opened exactly on time but no earlier despite the queue and service was very quick. The cocktails were excellent. The food was reasonable but not what we expected. Chicken with cashews featured crumbed chicken and the Pad See Ew had only a small quantity of rice noodles in it. Nonetheless the food seemed very fresh.

    Service attitude was great! A little slow in removing cleared plates but food was served very timely. The outside space is great on a nice sunny day although some seats are a little rocky due to some uneven patches.

    Food was delicious and of good quantity for the banquet. Service was a little inattentive (needing to ask for water regularly, dishes not explained despite their being a mix of dietary requirements at the table, etc). Would definitely come back, just wasn't seamless.

    Didn’t have any expectations going it but pleased to say Ho Chi Mama ticked all the boxes, beautiful decor and ambience, excellent food and drinks and at a reasonable price for what you’re getting, especially if you go for the banquet option. slightly slow service on drinks but to be expected given how busy the restaurant was
