After being the ‘life-of-the-party’ in downtown CBD for the last six years, Mama’s ready to kick-start another exciting new venture in the wild, wild East! And where better for this Tiger Mama to roar than the vibrant South-East Asian hub of flavour and culture that is Swan Street, Richmond!

It’s ‘Crouching Tiger, Whole New Mumma!’ – but this sequel is just as good as the original!

We’re beyond ecstatic to share this new space with the public and bring the Richmond tiger cubs some of Mama’s lovin’!

The trademark of Mama’s dining experience is the ‘Me Hungry Now’ offering! Patrons can bask in all the zingy and fiery flavours in Mama’s repertoire – indulging in a selection of our drool-worthy smaller, larger, and sides dishes – for an affordable spend per diner at $37.50 each!

Always soooo delicious! Amazing atmosphere and great value for money. Wow. It’s always a go to for me and a crowd pleaser - something for everyone. Only issue is the time limit. We were a table of 4 and we got kicked out after 1hr 15 mins.

Food is overrated. Tasted like cheap eats. Calamari was average, the pork belly tasted like crackling. Sashimi is good though

So incredibly delicious! Super friendly, helpful and very fast service, great ambiance, very helpful with allergies (I'm a coeliac and they have a gluten free menu with options highlighted that you can eat, and other options that can be made gf). Loved everything about Hochi Mama Richmond!

(Highly recommend the salmon sashimi, betel leaf bites, and lamb massaman curry, yum!!

We had a fabulous afternoon at Hochi Mama.. After changing our numbers for the table we were seated on the sidewalk but we still had a great lunch with so many yummo dishes and a few cocktails to wash it down.. Staff are friendly and will definitely be back when we can hopefully get a table inside..

The staff weren’t very attentive, it took ages for them to serve us and I understand it was busy but waving them down after being patient for 20 minutes to order food post receiving our drinks and then them giving us unrealistic time frames of when our food would arrive e.g. rice 5 mins, mains 20 mins but really it was an hour haha. I would just suggest reading the room of their current space and over estimating time frames for customers even though it’s uncomfortable rather than customers being disappointed with a longer time frame.

On the positive, food is worth the $$$, lamb shank was the best ever and they never let us down with their Bao buns! we also sat outside and felt very warm due to their fab heaters even though it was a freezing winter night. Also aesthetically pleasing venue as usual!

It was an overall great experience. The only downfall was the location of our table, as it was next to the door (entrance) and felt a little secluded from the atmosphere.
Food was great and service was good too. 100% going back again!
