Mama San is one of award-winning Chef Will Meyrick's restaurants; its first restaurant is located in Bali, and now, they have outlets in Hong Kong and Malaysia as well. Mama San KL is located in Suria KLCC and what you get here is Asian street food in a refined setting. The menu showcases Chinese, Indonesian, Indian, Malay, Singaporean, Thai, Cambodian and Vietnamese cuisine. Some of the dishes you may find here include Peking duck, phad thai, pho bo, udang asam tumis, massaman curry chicken and more.
The restaurant interior is influenced by the colonial times in Shanghai during the 1920s. The walls are graced with a travelogue of old style photographs and retro-inspired mural wallpaper.

With every order of a main course, you would get a signature lychee tiffin punch (usually RM28) for free, thanks to a promotion they are running with CIMB credit card. Served in a small, adorable 2-layered tiffin carrier, this cocktail was pretty potent and contains vodka, lychee, strawberry, mint, vanilla, orange, lemon and lime.
We ordered two dishes to share - the wood roasted Balinese-style barramundi (RM60) as well as the Thai style wood roasted rib eye (RM70). We loved the barramundi, which was coated in a delicious marinade, wrapped in banana leaf and then roasted and served with 3 dips, including sambal matah as well as a bowl of plecing kangkung. The spice level was just nice and the fish was beautifully cooked so we really enjoyed this. The rib eye has also been marinated and then oven roasted to our preferred doneness, and served with some raw vegetables and nahm jihm jauw sauce. It would have been better if the beef was slightly more tender. Overall, the portions are generous and are good for sharing.
