Eating in is her favourite treat

I’m always one to push buttons so every year I try it out. “Let’s EAT OUT for your birthday Mum!” The usual glare, a tiny smirk, and she’s off, reciting what she’ll be cooking for that family meal.

Eating IN is her favourite treat.

Like many Vietnamese refugees, my parents and relatives began in the rag trade working 16-hour days in the garage to make ends meet. Mum was skillful and fast, but her magic has and always will be in the kitchen. Whether she’s feeding V.I.P (us!),those unexpected but frequent drop-ins, or ‘The Village’ (our relatives), mum always exceeds expectations, both in flavour and quantity!

What she created with the little we had was amazing! And while money didn’t grow on trees, mum could grow just about everything else. The Bưởi (a large grapefruit species) is a mainstay of her garden and our family table, and half the reason for the name Mama’s Bưởi.

The other reason is pretty obvious. Not in the negative sense, but a jovial confession of my admiration and gratitude.

The Mama’s Bưởi menu is inspired by both my Mum and close aunt’s (‘Thím’) home-cooked goodness. Our best memories are centered around family meals and the banter that echoed from them. We’re happiest when everyone is enjoying great food in great company.

So make yourself at home (respectfully!) and make some memories. Just do as mum says:

“Eat, enjoy, and never leave the table hungry!”

Vô! [Yoh! – Cheers!]

Bao Hoang – Director, Self-confessed Mama’s Boy

Why work for Mama

Our roots are embedded deep within Vietnamese culture where the fabric of our existence is based on kinship. When you become part of Mama's Buoi, you become part of our family, a link that is unbreakable. This network of family and friends make us a very unique kind of business dedicated to each person's growth and development.

At every Mama's Buoi restaurant we want to create memories for families centred around food and the banter created at family meals. We are all happiest when everyone is enjoying great food in great company, so our customers are welcomed like our family members. We encourage them to make themselves at home and in Mum's words: "Eat, enjoy and never leave the table hungry".

Join our family

At the heart of what we do and why we do it is family. Food is everything in our family. It's what we laugh over, cry over, fight over and have done since we were kids. As they say, 'do what you love', so here we are. We're here to feed people and bring their day a little bit of joy - because their joy is our joy and that's what we live for. Feed Joy.


Our family likes to make a difference

We have no doubt that we are blessed to be where we are today - surrounded by family, friends, food and a safe home. We're aware that there are others that are not as fortunate, some don't even have access to the basics such as clean water.

At Mama's Buoi, we know we can't change the world, but we can change lives, even just one. Our hope is that as many people as possible can have the opportunity to experience what we did growing up, and enjoy the simple pleasures and eternal memories that come from good food and good company.

Mama's Buoi has chosen the charity Blue Dragon Children's Foundation, an Australian charity based in Vietnam. Blue Dragon rescues children in crisis: street kids, children with disabilities and victims of human trafficking and slavery. With passion, determination and the generosity of supporters from around the world Blue Dragon rescues children and supports their long-term growth. They offer the opportunity to dream big and, most importantly, to dream safe.
