The word 'Mamgoto' literally translates to 'to play with food' and be sure of this fact that their kitchen does the same thing. The Mama folks quite frankly stay away from the word authentic, simply because it's too serious but that does not mean their flavours deter any far from the origin of the food served here.

Mamagoto sources the finest of ingredients, flavours and cuisines from all across the continent and what you get on your plate is the fusion funk of street-style food, urban culinary expertise, all wrapped in a traditional kick!

To put it aptly, this soul food extravaganza is so wide and thorough, you'll always be spoiled for options when here. Their menu brings in the best of Asian food culture, fresh from pans to plates, cooked in only organic flavours and no MSG.

Our spread here included the creaminess of Chilli Garlic with Cheese dumplings, the kick Rainbow Chicken variation, and the crisp of Old Street Gyoza along with Prawn Sesame Toast, Coriander and Vegetables, Spicy Street Style Chicken, and trust us -we just could not have enough! But do you even blame us!? They have 14 types of soft and juicy dumplings on offer, including vegetable, chicken and seafood variations, each served with 4 special, made in-house relish dips.
