    We were walking around Nuku'alofa looking for a place to have dinner. We came by Mum's Cafe and after looking at the reviews we decided to give it a go. We ordered 'Ota 'ika and grilled chicken with mash potatoes. After a small wait the 'Ota 'ika came out and then the chicken. Both were fantasic! The seafood was fresh and the marinade has a lovely zing. The chicken came with a small salad, lots of mash, lots of chicken and a amazing creamy sauce. If you are looking for a relaxing place to have a great value dinner I would recommend Mum's Cafe.

    I had breakfast one morning and went back for the mixed plate and 'ota ika and fried chicken. Food was delicious the 'ota ika was so fresh and the best combination with the kamala. They have western and Tongan food. Service is awesome and the staff are super friendly. Indoor and outdoor dining. You have to be in quick for their Tongan food as it always runs out.

    Used to be better. The Kentucky chicken is soggy and not crunchy nor tasty, chicken tasted off. The chicken nuggets are crunchy but very thin that it's like a schnitzel biscuit and chips are always under. Price is decent nice location away from town.

    Really enjoyed the outdoor atmosphere, but the neighbors acted as if they hated being next to a restaurant. We walked from town to have lu, but they were out and couldn't say when they would have it. Wish they had what we wanted. It's a half mile walk. Ended up ordering sapasui wich tasted expired. Wouldn't feed it to a dog. The Ota ika was good, and the kale moa was good... but all you can taste was the kale for hours after. The kumala was good and I took with me what we didn't finish because everywhere in town serves fries, garlic bread or rice. Only other place is Escape who serves Kumala with their Ota. That gets big thumbs up. We came from America for Tongan food. Not rice, fries, or garlic bread.

    Nice lady on counter. Wife loved the fruit salad. Sandwich was very tasty but was on the dry side.

    Nice clean place. The food is kind of fast food prepared before hand and flavor is good but not amazing.

😐 Food is almost the same as friends, but higher price. Great atmosphere, great food, and great service. The only thing I didn't like is, the high cost of food and the portion of the food for the cost. Other then that it was good. I give this a 3 star rating because they do know how to cook their food...

😠 Beware to the tourist, this restaurant tried to take advantage of me big time. My friend and I waited 2 and a half hours for our meals to come out and when the food arrived they only brought out my friends meal. Then the lady who took my order said I never ordered anything. Being the only white guy...

👍👍 Nice Lunch Spot (probably even better for dinner). We were looking for a decent meal and we found a beautiful restaurant with a stunning view. We ordered the fish and chips plus a fish taco. Both were good and the local beer on draught was ice cold. Waitstaff was kind and courteous. Before we le...
