I love going here when I just want an authentic experience. When I go, I enjoy the bolgogee (barbeque beef). The experience of cooking your own food at the table is phenomenal. The sides that they offer along with the food is tasty, as well. I personally enjoy the spicy squid, fish cakes and sweet potatoes. The kimchi is also... More

Mama's is just a tad to far for us to drive for a quick meal. If it were 10 minutes closer we'd eat there way more often. While we have had most if not every dish on the menu, we do a favorites. Chop Chae (not spicy) goes great with Pork & Kim Chee Saute. If my husband orders fish... More

Authentic Korean food! Had Dinner there on a Sunday. Had the Korean Full Dinner & Squid Sauté. Super busy!Very fast service...from time of ordering to food on the table. Regular table is faster, if BBQ tables are all taken. I definitely recommend Ma Ma's House Korean Restaurant in Indy.

I had watched an episode of Master Chef where the contestants had to prepare bibimbap, a Korean dish I'd never heard of. I wanted to try it so I went to Mama's. I got carryout and was disappointed to see how little meat was included with the mountain of veggies. The vegetables tended to taste the same due to the... More

Delicious and fun way to enjoy a wide variety of flavors and grilling your own food makes you relax and take time to have a conversation with your friends.

I lived in Korea for a year in 2009, and this is BY FAR the most authentic and delicious Korean food I have had since I departed the land of the morning calm. Dolset bi bim bop is one of my favorite dishes, and usually does not disappoint even here in the USA. Even though it was pricier than I... More

We have been eating at Mama's nigh on 25 years. We probably eat there every other month or so. We either have Pork Kim Che Saute and Chop Chae or he'll have the seafood soup and I'll have Dolsoet Bebeem Bop. We seem to have settled on those after trying everything on the menu many years ago. If we have... More

We brought a large group to celebrate my birthday and should have realized we might have awful service when we arrived. We told them that we were the group of 16 and they just walked off (hopefully to ask someone?). We were one of the first few tables to arrive (a few mins before 6bpm) and drink orders were taken...

They have good food, but for some reason they decided the two of us only needed one menu, and they didn't even offer water. And it was not because they were too busy, we were the second group entering the restaurant. Food is not exactly the same as it says on the menu, we ordered a soup, they didn't say... More
