The store service was great, and the interior design was nice. While the milkshakes tasted great, they were overpriced, however the quantity served was great or than expected. Worth the visit only if you intend on purchasing a full lunch/dinner or breakfast,
not just to order a drink.

I thought that Mama brown was one of the famous restaurants in Wellington but it turns out not good as what people said. Me and my girlfriend ordered big papa and double cheeseburger. The size of patty was way too thick and also the texture was similar as meat ball. I recommend to go Lucky burger or Burger fuel thank you

About 10 of us went here for a birthday celebration.
What a disappointment.
The place was raucously noisy, the toilet had no hand towels, and the food was absolutely ghastly!!
One of our party had 3 children (and his wife) and they spent over $170 for absolute trash.
A couple of examples: the fish was still half frozen after having been over-fried in batter that was about 2cm thick (I kid you not). It was inedible.
The chicken waffles consisted of two pieces of chicken (thin) that was tasteless, with waffles either side that had been dressed in "maple" syrup. Four of us had this dish and we all agreed it was the worse chicken dish any of us had had. At over $29 a plate one expects, and is entitled to, much, much better.

In hindsight we should have all walked out without paying, it was that bad.

In summary, if you are looking for a place to eat, avoid like the plague Mama Browns.

I had heard somewhere that this was good , so we decided to get via Uber eats, we ordered big papa burger and nachos. Burger looked literally nothing like the pictures and for the price of $22.90 a complete rip off, no chips either. Crap dry bun and dry chicken not tasty at all. Nachos came a a tray of corn chips with all the topping seperate in a plastic container. Good idea to stop chips getting soggy, only good thing about it.again $22.90, not value for money at all very disappointed. If your looking for gourmet burgers/American style food GO SOMEWHERE ELSE.

Please improve the way of behaviour to the customer. Staff at the counter was rude. Thanks so for worst experience.
