“No place to sit down, no place to wait, no politeness from staff and clients”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

The restaurant is so popular among students and foreigners that live in Harbin but on the other hand, so small and there isn´t area enough to accomodate all clients, including off-peak hours.
Even the clients, that already finish the meal, never vacate the tables for others clients that are standing waiting and the restaurant employee only asks to you wait outside, even at the winter time.
it is frustrating because the dishes, juices, coffe, desserts, etc are delicious, maybe, the best one in Harbin.

“amazing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

its probably the only legit western restaurant!! their food is amazing!! just too generous on the dressings and sauces. its a really small restaurant and always full so dont expect to show up and be seated right away. they have great deserts! even carrot cake! :)
their drinks aren't that good though. just overly sweetened stuff. but their burgers, club sandwiches, and chicken salads are just a little taste of home.
if you miss western food go to hamamas!! its definitely worth a trip and the long wait!

“Great Food, Good Coffee, Friendly Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2011

Great western food, coffee and deserts. If you need a break from Chinese food this is probably the best place in Harbin to get it. A relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Around 50 yuan for a meal, drink, and desert. Highly recommended.

“Like home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011

Great food, great service. Family, foreign and Chinese friendly. Always relaxing and friendly. Note: I visited before Sept. 2010 but that's the earliest choice the tripadvisor had.

“Cosy cafe with friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

Great place to get a cup of coffee, some good food, with the friendliest service in Harbin, and a perfect place to meet other expats or foreign students, have to say that Hamamas became an essential part of my life during my time studying in Harbin. Place is run by a foreign couple who are extremely friendly.
