Mama Yo

About Mama Yo

Welcome to Mama Yo, a brand-new Chinese restaurant located at 76 Camden St.

The subtle façade of Mama Yo gives little away of what lies behind the intricately designed cast iron gate. Step through the narrow entrance and let Mama Yo welcome you to her home, where great food and hospitality await.

Duck Oven

The star of the show is most certainly the Roast Duck, a hallmark traditional dish that dates back over 1,000 years. Mama Yo uses the best quality Irish ducks from our suppliers Silver Hill Duck, roasted slowly over wood in the specially designed duck-roasting oven. This low and slow cooking process results in the most succulent, crispy skinned duck that’s not to be missed. The half or full duck is served with all the traditional accompaniments- pancakes, cucumber, scallions, and hoisin sauce.

Our Roast Duck, served only during dinner, is subject to availability and must be pre-ordered a minimum of 48 hours prior by calling the restaurant directly or requesting through Open Table.

To pre-order your whole or half duck in advance of arrival, please make a note on your booking to experience a truly authentic Chinese speciality.



Mama Yo is a beautifully designed space that is large and intimate in equal measure. Sit beneath the dramatically lit trees and low hanging lanterns, and be instantly transported to the exotic world of the far east. From the reclaimed wood roof and signature oven on display, to the colourful art pieces, every detail has been considered, down to the bespoke silk hanging lights, to create a warm, homely feel.
