Lost and found at Mama San

Tucked below St Judes on Bath Street is Mama San.  If like us you don’t find it the first time, be persistent.  When we somehow missed the entrance and ended up in St Judes, we were warmly welcomed and escorted to our table.

The 5pm deal is a great way to sample the wares and includes two courses and a drink for £12.95.  Bargain – and particularly brilliant considering your drink can be one of their totally tasty cocktails.

The recently refurbished restaurant is slick and chic, complete with a larger than life naked lady adorning one wall.  Mama San perhaps?

Cocoon of calm and soothing cocktails

But the bum-bearing lady is surprisingly fitting, somehow adding to the calm cocoon-like space.   It oozes cool, yet has a warm feel – or perhaps that’s the cocktail buzz.

Pad Thai Spring Rolls at Mama SanNot forgetting the all-important food, Mama San offers a delicious selection of dishes from Thailand, Indonesia and China.

It’s admittedly tough to decide between the Thai Green Curry and Beef Rendang.  In the end I go with the luscious chicken satay starter and an equally enjoyable Basil Chilli Chicken.  I have slight food envy when I see my friend’s  Pad Thai Spring Rolls and Thai Green Curry.

If you want to stray from the 5pm menu, the Chilli and Lime Sea Bass or twice cooked Pork sounds just as enticing.

So if you’ve had a long week and need to unwind, take a wrong turn – relax, enjoy good food and soothing cocktails in welcoming surroundings.
