Lakaz Maman is a Mauritian Creole word for 'Mum's House' and the food you'll find here is relaxed, informal street food you can get messy with. No napkins, no airs or graces, just authentic Mauritian street food with a modern twist. We are also proud to be rated the best street food restaurant in Bedford Place, Southampton.

Here at Lakaz Maman in Bedford Place Southampton you will find food to suit all your needs, from a simple kids menu as we know some kids are fussy eaters, to spicy and complex dishes such as our octopus with masala aioli and pineapple salsa there is a dish to suit everyone. If you have never tried Mauritian food before it is a lovely blend of flavours and not all dishes are spicy, our magic bowl is a Mauritian Chinese inspired dish made with a soy sauce, ginger and chives and it is served with steamed rice and a perfectly fried egg. If you have any specific dietary requirements please do give us a ring and we can go through the menu in more detail with you to ensure we cater to your needs.
