MamaLan: Changing The Way People Think About Chinese Food In London

“Perfect every time.”

“The BEST prawn dumplings I’ve ever had!”

“The best chicken wings in London!”

“Great food at great prices!”

These are just some of the incredible things that our customers have to say about us. This is what it is all about for us here at MamaLan: we want to make food that you will fall in love with. Delicious, tasty treats that will make you want to get up and dance!

With the buzz continuing to grow around the exciting menus on offer at our restaurants in Clapham and Brixton, we are having a full relaunch of our brand. We want to change the way you think about Chinese food, and give you a little piece of MamaLan magic with every bite – or slurp!

All of our fantastic food is handcrafted with skill and fresh ingredients that taste as incredible as they look. From stir-fries and noodle soups, to dumplings, baos, and wings, every dish pops and zings with flavour. While traditional recipes are behind all of our dishes, we like to feel that we have given everything our own special, modern twist. For us, it’s not about recreating something you can eat just anywhere – it’s about cooking food that makes you happy. Basically, if it tastes good, we put it in!

The MamaLan concept was born back in 2010, when our founder, Ning Ma, started a supper club serving traditional Chinese food. Since she had arrived in the UK in 1998, it was obvious to Ning that there was very little in the way of real, authentic Chinese food available in London. What she saw instead was just a Westernised version of Cantonese cuisine, full of grease and salt. It lacked the freshness and magic of the savoury treats that she had grown up with in Beijing.

The supper club proved to be hugely successful, and in 2011, Ning was able to open her first restaurant in Brixton. Its prime location right inside the Brixton Village market was ideal for showcasing its incredible ingredients and street food style, vibing perfectly with the local scene. It attracted rave reviews as well as more than its fair share of famous visitors. A couple of years later, MamaLan opened up another restaurant in Clapham, bringing in families and local professionals looking for the perfect lunch or dinner treat.

As Ning says:

“My granddad and my mum used to run a dumpling and snack stall in the bustling street markets of Beijing – it was a real family affair. Today, the food we serve at MamaLan is inspired by the very same food that was sold on my granddad’s humble little market stall all those years ago.”

Whether it’s delicious dumplings that tickle your fancy, or beautiful baos that rock your world, MamaLan is bound to be your new favourite.

No grease, no MSG, just wonderfully authentic flavours.
