    The food was tasty and it can be shared around. It doesn't take long to be served. Our waiter was very friendly and polite.

    Wonderful and delicious food, with a very friendly owner, Clara. We ordered the leek pancakes, fish dumplings, bibimbap, and beef dumpling soup. All were delicious. The star of the meal were the deep fried fish dumplings. It’s not entirely Korean, nor is it really reminiscent of any dish in East Asia (perhaps excluding a few dim sum dishes). It’s definitely innovative and thoroughly delicious. Well done!

    A nice place for a meal. While the Korean choices in Lilongwe continue to expand, this place served up good good. The dumplings were great and the sushi was what you’d want for Lilongwe sushi. It’s a mom and pop setup (hence the name) so you really feel like you are benefitting a business. Bonus points for the spotless toilets!

    Food was good. The California roll could do with a bit more salmon. Grated ginger and wasabi be nice. Maybe not Korean but be nice to have as optional. The lemonade was great. No cards accepted a downside

    Has some of the best Korean food I've had, without sacrificing speed, prices, serving size, or atmosphere! With the limited access to Korean ingredients, I have no idea how they do it. You can also order cheesecakes from them which are delicious!

    Mum's table is the only place in Lilongwe where you can enjoy authentic, home-made Korean meals. Although I live in Zomba, I take the long trip to LL whenever I get homesick. Its THAT goood!! :-) The menu ranges from traditional soups to savory finger foods (must try the chicken wings) to more of the popular ones such as Bibimbap. You will see that the ingredients and sauces are mostly home prepared and its not one of those quick diner meal with MSGs. The restaurant sits about 2-30 people and price ranges from MK5,000 - 6,000 for main meals.

    Literally used to go here once a week when in lilongwe. Have tried close to everything on the menu and have never been disappointed. The prices are fair allowing you to order a variety of foods. And love that it's a family run operation who are so friendly and welcoming! Amazing food!!

    I didn’t like the dumplings but everything else was good

  • 4/5 SL H. 5 years ago on Google
    If you come from North America, this may not be the best Korean food that you normally get. But for the convenience of the price and scarcity of ingredients/supplies, this is the best of every possible option that you can get here in Malawi and for your craving of course. Rice and kimchi are not served with food (only bibimbap or dishes that specifically state so). Portions are much smaller by the way. I normally have to order an extra appetizer and kimchi.

    The best place to have korean food in lilongwe. Customer service is also good

  • 5/5 Natasha K. 1 year ago on Google
    Every time I come here I wonder if it will be as good as the last time. I wonder if perhaps they were just having a good day when I came. But no, it's that good. It's amazing. Super fast service, the food is DELICIOUS and the prices are great. I can't recommend it enough. Love this place.

    Lovely place, the owner is friendly and kind, walked us through the menu nicely, the food was well prepared, the takeaway packaging was nice. Very great parking space, call in advance for reservations or call at the gate. Their menu is amazing, the sushi, the chicken and all. Hands down it's an amazing place.
