Great place for both lunch and dinner, only downside is the parking! Staff are helpful and willing to make your meal gluten free! Menu is easy to read and there are heaps of options to choose from! Perfect if you love Korean and Japanese food!

Established in 2002, Mum’s Restaurant has gained high reputation for its authentic Korean & Japanese cuisine for both locals and tourists.We have received many praises and reviews by delighted customers and have been recommended by the famous travel guide book "Lonely Planet".

Whether you are new or experienced in Korean & Japanese cuisine, we are confident that your taste buds will be satisfied.We believe the tastiest foods are fresh and good for general well-being and pride in ourselves for always producing health oriented food using the traditional ‘slow-cooking’ method with fresh materials and spices. We DO NOT use MSG. If privacy is required, Mum’s restaurant offers a spacious function area ideal for corporate lunches, birthday parties and family gatherings.So we cordially invite you to our restaurant, and look forward to seeing you.
