Chinese
Mama Yo is located on Camden Street in Dublin 2. The menu, which blends traditional Chinese recipes with a contemporary twist, has been created with sharing in mind, so is perfect for groups and family style dining.
With an extensive menu covering dim sum style small plates, whole barbeque duck, and an array of mains and sides, come prepared to make some tough choices!

The star of the show is most certainly the Beijing Roast Duck, a hallmark traditional dish using the best quality Irish ducks roasted slowly over wood in the specially designed duck-roasting oven, resulting in succulent duck with the crispiest skin. Book your half or whole duck in advance by leaving a note on your booking.

The stunning interiors of Mama Yo, featuring two full sized trees in the middle of the dining room with bespoke silk lanterns, create a magical and enchanting effect, adding a layer of far eastern exoticism to your dining experience.

    It was my wife's birthday yesterday and I had decided to take her on a date to MAMA YO. I am so glad I chose this place because in Dublin I have not tasted such amazing Asian cuisine. It was delicious. The service was quick and so good by BEN. He was the perfect host to our table and kept checking at regular intervals to see if we were happy. The ambiance is absolutely stunning. If it wasn't on a little expensive side, we would definitely be regulars at MamaYo. Thanks for the amazing bday evening.

    The food was fine. Very overpriced and no real flavor off anything. We were in and out in less then an hour (starters, drinks and mains) and felt very rushed.

    Food was delicious. Service a bit strange - food came before the pre drinks. The food also came too fast - makes it look like fast food outlet. Cleaning tables and removing cutlery a bit slap dash but overall the quality of the food made up for it. Service people good humoured but a bit stressed. Noise levels quite high but the clientele are quite young so that’s to be expected. We’ll definitely be back.

    Really cool spot but we were sat by the door so you were very removed from the main dining space. It was also freezing. We had finished eating our starters before we got our drinks (which were a beer and a gin and tonic so no prep involved). Whole thing just felt very impersonal. The service was very slow for drinks/orders but the food came quickly. Wouldn’t be rushing back.

    We had a lovely evening at Mama Yo. The service & food were outstanding. Our only disappointment was we requested a table in the main area & were seated at the terrace instead. We had booked this a few weeks in advance so it was a pity you couldn’t accommodate us. The terrace is nice but too hot with those overhead heaters on in the summer. We’ll be back. Caroline

    Great Atmosphere and setting. Staff were very friendly, but they failed to bring out the birthday candle on a cheesecake as agreed upon beforehand. I had to pull a staff aside to remind them. The food was nice but nothing phenomenal. Overall lovely experience but I was disappointed with the birthday cake.

    Beautiful place, staff very good, service was great, but and the end of the day you go to a restaurant to eat,! We got ribs for one of the starters they were lukewarm, the main courses we got were like a Chinese take it was ok, But I feel the value for the food isn't there, its very expensive for what you get, we eat in a few Chinese restaurant in Dublin and I'm sorry to say we will not be back again.

    For a Press Up, I wasn't expecting to like this as much as I did. The staff are fantastic, and they really put in the effort. The only small thing was that we were celebrating a birthday as were the table beside us. They got a plated dessert and a Lil birthday song which we didn't 🤔 The decor is beautiful...we were seated at the back which gave us a bird's eye view of the kitchen. Cocktails were tasty, if a little pricey but to be expected. The food was delicious with the portion sizes larger than expected. Overall I will be back! Happy customer.

    Experience over all I would rate a 4/10. We ordered cocktails after our starter when we had ordered cocktails first. The starters were quite small and the duck spring rolls were cold. I ordered the sweet and sour chicken and it was like a childs meal with how it was breaded. It was very greasy and looked like something you’d get out of a pub. I had high expectations as i seen great reviews about it but i will not be back.
