“The dream has always been to open a place that is more than just a restaurant” says Will Meyrick, the executive chef and innovator behind Bali’s success story Sarong restaurant. “An environment where people can feel comfortable", Mama San is for anyone who likes to lounge in style and eat quality South East Asian food without it being too expensive.
At Mamasan you can step into colonial Britain in Shanghai during the 1920s, with marble top mah-jong tables and oversized tan leather chesterﬁelds, in a purpose designed industrial high ceiling warehouse. Gaze up to Mama San in all her glory staring down at patrons while dining and ponder over a travelogue of old style photographs. Colorful displays of retro inspired ﬂowers tower up to vintage clocks and a Chinese patterned mirror. A feature of the ground ﬂoor interior are two staircases either side of a service bar that climb a brick wall to the second level.
The Mama San dining rooms are fully air-conditioned, the ground floor seats up to 70 at any one time and is open for lunch at 12pm - 3pm and for dinner from 6pm – 11pm. Reservations are recommended for lunch and essential for the dinner service while upstairs the bar and kitchen serve from 6.30pm until late.
The location of Mama San is where all roads meet, the junction of Eat Street, Oberoi Road, Sunset Road and the main Seminyak thoroughfare. Driving guests are offered valet parking.
Please kindly note there is a no smoking policy in the ground ﬂoor dining room during dinner service although guests are welcome to light up after 11pm.
Mamasan operates a 'smart casual' dress code policy after five pm. In respect of this we ask that no branded singlets, sleeveless shirts or board shorts are worn and that footwear is appropriate. Please do not wear casual 'thongs' or 'flip flops' to Mamasan.
