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.

“Great food :)”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

The food was really nice and the staff was really friendly. But I didn't know why the male owner was so grumpy at the female staff. He looks very unhappy even the restaurant was busy.

“A really nice restaurant with great food”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Really tasty food, large problems and good value for money. I really couldn't fault the meal that we had and we struggled to finish everything on our plates. The staff were very helpful and flexible. There was a good choice of both Korean and Japanese food on the menu.

“Gaining ground”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

We booked to eat here early on a quiet Sunday evening and were delighted with the whole experience.
There was a time in Christchurch when Japanese was available only in high-end eateries. Mum's is one of a number of Korean/Japanese restaurants meeting the middle ground. That is, casual dining, a broad menu, BYO wine and relatively inexpensive. The dishes are kind of authentic but biased towards European palates. The decor and seating felt very comfortable, with the larger space broken by louve timber screens.
Following a shared starter of garlic prawns, Mde had a teriyaki chilken, tempura veges, miso etc,, and I had a bento box. It was all great food, and really too much for two old fogies. Our own sav blanc went down well at only $6 corkage.
