Overall Winner – FreeFrom Eating Out Awards 2017
Judges comments - September 2018
'I visited Mommi with a colleague following a low-FODMAPs diet (no garlic, onion, soy and dairy) and I am coeliac so we presented some fairly complex dietary needs for Mommi to address.
Because they were fairly full we were offered a choice of sitting at the bar OR a table in the otherwise unused back section. We chose the back section. Our servers promised not to forget us – and did not.
We had two servers, one of whom was in their first two weeks. Both were charming and displayed excellent allergen-safety awareness. They provided certain advice and info when they had direct knowledge and checked and returned when they did not - no guesswork. Dishes with garlic, onion, soy and dairy were clearly identified along with dishes without.
The food, which is Japanese-Peruvian was fantastic. The small plate format means that most meals have lots of variety of flavor, taste, texture and aroma. There was not a single dish ordered (and we ordered about a dozen) that did not offer something pleasant or special. Even better Mommi desserts come in a 'mini puddings' format. We chose all seven desserts (including two dairy free) and these ranged from great to fantastic. Passion Fruit & Yuzu Cheesecake and Peruvian Chocolate Mousse are the signature dishes.
Not super cheap but absolutely not expensive for the fabulous quality of the food and the charming and totally allergen aware service.'
