Growing up, Rita's own mother Nahil taught her how to cook using delicious fresh vegetables grown in the Lebanese mountains by her father Simon. Rita took to cooking naturally and was soon adding her own touches to her mother's signature dishes. Recognising this gift, Jessica wanted the world to enjoy the flavours of her home. Such is their love for home cooking, the mother-daughter duo wanted to share this passion, and thus Mama Rita was born.

Premium in quality, democratic in pricing, the Mama Rita menu has been carefully curated by Jessica and Rita to bring all three generations of heartwarming home cooking to the public, beautifully fusing Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and International cuisine. Every meal created in the Mama Rita kitchen tells a story of authenticity; the food is real, wholesome and cooked from the heart.
