    Great service, very attentive staff and the restaurant is absolutely beautiful. I got the Duck Salad and the Pork Soup Dumplings - the food arrived really quickly and the flavours were really good. The place is a bit pricey (paid about 25 euro for the salad and dumplings) but the ambience and gorgeous interior decor make it worth it.

    We had lunch at Mama Yo at 1pm on a Sunday. The restaurant had their music off (they must have forgot to turn it on during restaurant prep) so it was quiet and an awkward ambiance. We asked the waiter to turn on the background music and he did, which made it much better. I got the chilli tofu which was not that flavourful and also quite dry. The menu said it came with a sauce but I got a plate of dry white rice and dry veg and tofu with some seasoning powder on top. I asked for a small bowl of sauce to pour over and that made it edible. The spring rolls starter was too expensive for the tiniest portion. I don't mind the price of food as long as the portions are good and it's delicious but Mama Yo had neither of those things so it was overpriced in my opinion. The only thing I can commend was the friendly staff and the beautiful decor of the restaurant.

    The food was really good. However, there were too many things that went bad: we arrived and we booked a standard table and they wanted to seat us on the terrace we said no so they gave us a table near the door that was super cold and the environment was terrible, comparing to the main part of the restaurant- worst was they had 4 tables of 2 available and they didn’t allow us to seat there - how could people book all that specific tables? We were so cold I couldn’t even enjoy the dinner. Then, the guy that was serving us grabbed our chopsticks to put on the table, without anything for them to don’t touch the table. Is this a fast food restaurant?! We ordered wine by the glass and they did not serve us in our table, they brought already the glasses with the wine. Once again, service level really bad.

    Quality of food was excellent, service was very good considering it was very busy and we were a table of 6. My special request to have a table under the tree was granted - I was delighted. The red wine was perfect. a really super spot for a celebration or dinner for two.

    Doesn’t seem to be enough staff serving for such a busy place. We had long waits for menus, drinks, taking orders. One starter was forgotten and didn’t come out until we reminded the waitress

    Absolutely beautiful restaurant way bigger than it presents from outside. Attention to detail in layout and decor is faultless. Food and service were very good, but my gripe was the table wasn't wiped down once between courses and we found ourselves repeatedly asking for napkins and cutlery. Really good experience overall though

    The vibe of the restaurant is really nice (press up put a lot of money into the ambiance) but the food was only fine and quite expensive. Satay skewers were the highlight of the meal. Cocktails were fine. Service was only okay. Only one vegetarian option on the starter menu and one on the main menu.

    First time going here and was blown away by the whole experience! Food is 10/10 extremely satisfied and the service was phenomenal and very personal which is essential! We had a Greek server who’s name I have forgotten (apologies) but he was amazing!! If you’re thinking of coming here but are hesitant due to the price point it is worth every penny!

    We called for our 10 year anniversary, I had organised a little desert that said happy anniversary with your staff on the phone a couple of days before booking and said it to staff in the resteraunt on the night that never happened. Also our bill was €110 I gave waiter €120 and he just presumed the rest was a tip and never came back with change. Everything else was ok.

    I booked Mama Yo on late notice about 3 days before hand for 6pm. We were allocated seats to the front of the restaurant. The manger was rude and dismissive as we came in. I asked would there be perhaps a table to the rear of the restaurant in the nice area. I was told that it was reserved for people who had booked a month in advance. I have a fairly skeptical view that anyone is booking this place a month in advance. Nothing special. But fair enough we sat by the door which would open occasionally causing a cold draft to flow through at this point my girlfriend is getting cold. I asked again would it be possible for us to move away from the door again dismissive he had “lots of tables coming in at 7pm”. The place when we left at 8pm was half full at best this was a Tuesday night. The food itself was overpriced and nothing special though the Mongolian Beef was nice Overall pretty dissatisfied. The waiting staff were excellent and very attentive couldn’t fault them.
