This is a must for anyone who loves asian inspired food, from smaller tasting plates to whole steamed fish. We had a table of 12 for my birthday there and attempted to smash the entire extensive menu but ran out of space. Last night my wife and i returned for cocktails and more.

We had to repeat the snapper dumplings but the Burmese Pork Satays were a new addition and just incredible. Three entrees, a main and rice was plenty between two with (2 cocktails, 1 wine, 2 beers) - around $90 AUD.

We'll go one more time before we leave, mouth is watering at the thought.

Tip. You don't have to book, even on a sat night. Go there, head for the cocktail bar upstairs (lime and chilli margaritas*****) - it has arm chairs, little tables, sofas etc for at least 30 people and the whole menu is available. I personally think upstairs is better (& cooler/hipper).

Totally worth it.

This is our second visit to Mamasan after a wonderful 1st visit 7 months ago. Once again we had amazing food and spectacular cocktails! We love the atmosphere, the wonderful selection of Asian street food and unique drinks presented with a trendy twist! The decor is worth a look in itself! Have a cocktail upstairs while the sun sets before moving to your table to have a great meal! Service is quick and efficient. We booked by email and found this a easy and hassle free way to secure a table at this popular establishment! We will be back next time we are visiting Bali and will continue to recommend Mamasan to friends, family, and work colleagues!

Another restaurant by the talented team that gave us Sarong. This place has a real New York Industrial theme that really works. Cocktails first upstairs are a must. The menu is extensive and everything super tasty asian fusion on fire!

We'd heard great reviews and were very happy with our evening, great menu, service & setting... The food was a taste sensation . Upstairs for cocktails super stylish too...
Only tip they could do with more vegetarian options as we were with a "vegie " friend and only one dish to chose from.., highly recommend - need to book!

We went here on our last night in Bali hoping that it would be something special. When we first arrived we were told that they had a dress code and men couldn't wear tank tops. They did bring out a shirt for the customer to wear which was appreciated but this wasn't mentioned when making the dinner reservation. This does not bother me if you are in a fine dining restaurant but I wouldn't say Mama San is classified as fine dining, yet.

First of all, your plate is being cleared while you are still chewing your last mouthful and others on your table are still eating.

Secondly, a meal came out (chicken) that was raw. We were offered a replacement which we greatfully accepted but should not have been charged for in my opinion.

Happy to pay the prices charged here when the meal and service meets expectation and value for money but on this occasion we were disappointed.
