    We booked online for 6pm and we cannot find anywhere that our booking was limited to 90 mins. At 7:15pm we were told we only had the table for a further 15 minutes. Most sittings are for 2 hours which I'm fine with, but 90 minutes is barely time to eat let alone socialise.

    They looked after us , after we were 30mins late due to a bar not serving our pre dinner drinks on time. Not only did Hochi Mama give us a complimentary shot they also ensured our food came out quickly, so we could eat in the set timeframe. Love the food, loved the service. We will be back!!!

    We dined here for a quick meal before the tennis. Very pleased we made a booking as the restaurant was full up, with limited space for walk-ins. 0ne of the guests was gluten-free, they happily dined off the gluten-free "Feed Me Now" menu which was a great deal and had lots of delicious, allergy-friendly options. The servers where friendly and the food and drinks came out quickly. Would love to go back or try their other location.

    Food and service was really good. I requested outside seating but didn’t realise this was street curb in Swan street, this seating was extremely uncomfortable and on a slope. My error for not checking the type of outdoor area prior to booking. I’d definitely recommend this just not outside

    This place was outstanding. We came from SA and were not disappointed. Very big served, very tasty (pork hock curry and rib were to die for)... excellent 90s tunes and great atmosphere. Staff were great if not a little too attentive - ie taking an empty plate while we were eating the other plate. Prefer being left to eat alone. So sad we cant just pop back.

    Horrible service. Seated at a table in a room with no air conditioning, took forever for someone to come and take drink orders, charged a fee for a birthday cake that wasn’t kept in the fridge and they didn’t even bring a knife until after we went up and asked. Food good but service was the worst I’ve experienced.

    Unfortunately, your restaurant suffers from being too popular. I didn't realize when I booked at 7 pm that I would be rushed so another sitting could come in. The staff handled the situation very poorly and made it very uncomfortable for my guest and I. At one point trying to take our plates away before we were finished. I was pleased we opted for a variety of small dishes and not a larger meal because I would have struggled to finish my meal in the 90 minutes allocated. The food was delicious as always. Please make it clearer when making a booking that the booking is only for a 90 minute time frame. I would have made 2 bookings and ordered accordingly.
