What began as a supper club in the restaurant owner’s own home soon became a pop-up in Brixton, where it then became a permanent fixture. Since its humble beginnings, the Chinese food revolution has now opened in a number of areas, with East Village being its fourth restaurant spot; a brilliant addition to the area for anyone looking for a full-flavoured, Asian-inspired bite to eat!

What can you expect to see on the menu? From handmade dumplings to noodle soups and striking salads, Mama Lan is all about bringing the authentic flavour and experience of Chinese street food straight to your taste buds. Restaurant owner Ning Ma was inspired by her grandad’s very own market stall in Beijing and aims to bring her family’s traditional recipes alive at Mama Lan.

The restaurant itself offers an open and relaxed atmosphere, with simple décor and a number of paper lanterns hanging around the place, making for an ideal casual dining spot that reflects the ‘street food’ vibe of the place. So whether it’s lunchtime, a late night dinner or an afternoon gap to fill, Mama Lan will be here to bring a bite of Beijing to East Village, and we can’t wait to try it!
