The food was really nice and the staff was really friendly. But I didn't know why the male owner was so grumpy at the female staff. He looks very unhappy even the restaurant was busy.

Really tasty food, large problems and good value for money. I really couldn't fault the meal that we had and we struggled to finish everything on our plates. The staff were very helpful and flexible. There was a good choice of both Korean and Japanese food on the menu.

We booked to eat here early on a quiet Sunday evening and were delighted with the whole experience.
There was a time in Christchurch when Japanese was available only in high-end eateries. Mum's is one of a number of Korean/Japanese restaurants meeting the middle ground. That is, casual dining, a broad menu, BYO wine and relatively inexpensive. The dishes are kind of authentic but biased towards European palates. The decor and seating felt very comfortable, with the larger space broken by louve timber screens.
Following a shared starter of garlic prawns, Mde had a teriyaki chilken, tempura veges, miso etc,, and I had a bento box. It was all great food, and really too much for two old fogies. Our own sav blanc went down well at only $6 corkage.
