Every dish satisfies the craving! (See photo descriptions)

Our only issue was they do not have timber chopsticks and had to use the regular slippery plastic chopsticks and spoon/fork.

Special thank you to David at the front desk for organising the birthday treat for my daughter.

Food were less qualified than usual. We ordered fried pork rib and a sort of fried lamb cutlets, felt a little disappointed as we they were all too fat, causing us sick after. Dumpling platter is fabulous.

The food and drinks were excellent, however the service was lacking. It took ages for a waiter to come and ask if we were ready to order and once the food was served no one came to check if we were enjoying the food or if we needed anything else. There was hardly anyone else in the restaurant by the time we asked for the bill and it still took almost 10 minutes for someone to come and process payment (we had to flag them down). I would still come back because I was happy with the food, but hopefully next time the service is better.

Food was ok, not original flavours but done nicely. Seems to be trying to jump on the trendy Asian fusion food scene. Wait staff were good, polite and attentive. Food service was odd, a lot of things at once or long wait, however presentation was lovely. Good to try but unsure we'd return.

Mama Mulan is a great place to eat. The restaurant is beautiful and very classy. The food is delicious- the best Chinese I’ve tried! Would have given full marks but for the service. I’ve been quite a number of times now and it’s always really difficult to flag someone down when you need them!

A very disappointing experience with food that was barely edible. We selected a range of dishes but overall the calamari was tough and tasteless, the pot stickers filled with tasteless imported prawns and the duck pancakes, while the best of the three dishes, lacked taste and presentation.

Overall a terrible experience food wise.

This is a real gem, beautifully presented clean and light. The food is delicious, and the service is attentive without being overbearing. My only comment would be to add some more spicy dishes to the menu. It’s a great spot for a working lunch or a date.

This is a newer restaurant on the scene but quickly gaining popularity. The menu is relatively uncluttered but offers some interesting variations on a Chinese theme with a more modern approach. Worth the visit.

Love the vibes and decor of the restaurant. The cocktails were absolutely stunning and we all ordered another round! The food wasn’t as spectacular as I had hoped. The sweet and sour pork was extremely chewy and lacklustre. The dumplings were pretty nice though and I enjoyed the sides. Our salted caramel deep fried ice cream dessert was pretty nice too. Overall not a bad experience and I may go again if I am in the area.

Went to Mama Mulan for a birthday dinner on a Friday evening. The place was buzzing with people so, prior reservation would be a good idea on Fridays/ weekends. Food was excellent on taste, quantity and spice levels though the show stopper for the evening was their signature cocktail - Mama Mulan!! Staff was courteous, was pretty patient as we took few minutes to decide on where to sit (inside gets noisy if you are there for an intimate dinner). Over all nice experience!

This is my second visit to Mama Mulan. My first visit was amazing food and service was excellent. The second time round was awful, it was my mum’s birthday, service was poor and we got desserts for her which they just plopped on our table in its bag and did not provide plates or cutlery. They rushed to remove the plates despite us not having finished eating. Very disappointed

Service staff need some fine-tuning - they accidentally poured water into my gin & tonic (but replaced it), no chopsticks set on the table before our food arrived, waiter leaned across us to clear our plates. However, the food was delicious - Chinese with a modern and interesting twist. Beautiful fit-out and the maitre de was so friendly and delightful - a real pleasure to deal with.

We were returning to this restaurant as the first time we had eaten here proved to be a pleasant experience which we commended to friends. So this time we booked for six on a Thursday evening. Specifically requested a balcony table. Three emails sent to me reminding me of the booking. Arrived to find the balcony closed. Maitre'd said it was closed as 'they were very busy', a pathetic excuse for any restaurant. At no time was it mentioned in any of the myriad emails that the balcony was closed. Instead of a relaxing time on the balcony then, we were ushered to a table in a corner and spent the whole night trying to hear each other over the excessive din and noise level. Had to ask to have the chairs at the table changed as they were so uncomfortable. Service was very inconsistent at best and the $59.00 'banquet' was hardly good value. And the whole experience cost us approximately $550.00. Not good enough and we will not be returning.
