“Excellent Caribbean takeaway with friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

Takeaway whilst we waited, not a ridiculous waiting time. The owner mama Flo was there and was very friendly and helpful given we aren't really in the know on this area of food. Chose three dishes and the plantain all of which were brilliant! Some small area for you to eat at the restaurant if you wish though I think most get takeaway. Def worth a visit in the vicinity.

“So glad it's moved. Love it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

Having been a regular at Mama Flo's when she was over in a Gorton I was delighted to hear that she'd moved into Great Moor.

We've been busy so haven't had time to visit until tonight.

Food was as good, hospitality as good and great value.

The premises is not as big or as homely but I'm sure she's working on it.

Great food, great host will certainly be frequent visitors.

Food is authentic Caribbean food, all the favourites, hot, homely and great flavours.

“Mama Flo's Great Moor…… Lovely vibe, great people, delicious food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

We went to Mama Flo's for tea on tuesday night and will definitely be going regularly. The place has a lovely vibe and Mama Flo and the guy working there with her were both really lovely, friendly and welcoming. There was a steady stream of customers and you can eat in or take away (we ate in). We went for the browned Snapper Fish with rice and peas (which come with free coleslaw or steamed veg, we went for one each to try both) and tried the plantains and dumplings on the side. We also had a freshly squeezed Soursop juice. Not being massively familiar with Jamaican cuisine the guy was super friendly and told us what it was all like and helped us to order.

The vibe of the place is lovely and chilled and everyone is friendly. We chilled with our Soursop juice (which was really very delicious, creamy and sweet) while waiting for our food which was freshly cooked. When it arrived we were very chuffed. The snapper was so fresh, lovely and moist and it fell away from the bones so was very easy to eat. The sauce was yummy too, deep in flavour and rich with spices. Everything was fresh and tasty, a real nice mix of tastes and textures.

It's also a real bargain, for two of us the whole lot only came to £21, and it was well wroth every penny.

We are planning to return this weekend with friends. They do not serve alcohol but charge corkage so we would like to go with friends and share a bottle of wine.

We will also certainly be returning for a nice mid week tea too.

Would certainly recommend it to anyone and can't wait to return (in fact really fancy nipping there now for lunch :O)

PS: Just to note there still seems to be reviews for Mama Flo's on the Trip Advisor page for their former Gorton address, so worth checking those great reviews too!

“Life Savers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

If you're from London passing through Stockport on a Sunday and you insist on having a traditional West Indian Sunday Dinner.... This restaurant will exceed your expectations! I opted for the Curry Goat with plain rice and corn meal dumpling, goodness me! I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. The food is what you would expect; perfect, the price is consistent with that of London and the owner and her daughter were very professional in providing a good standard of service. Mama Flo's flies the flag well, big thumbs up!

“Curried Goat and Peas Rice - Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

We went in on a Saturday night and my mates had been to the one in Gorton before. We tried the dumplings, the jerk wings and curried goat with peas rice. The taste of food was expectional. We had to wait as there were a few orders before us they had to cater to. Again this is not a complaint but a reflection of the good quality of food and service at Mama Flo's.

I'd definitely go back again and strongly recommend Mama Flo's.
