you're invited

We worked tirelessly in late 2022 before our opening on 25 October 2022 to bring our new space to life. The outpouring of support you have given us is beyond anything we could have imagined.  So with open arms, we welcome you to join us at our new pop-up restaurant, mahob by amok. 

pop-up closing 23 December 2023

After working behind the scenes in the last three months to extend our pop-up, we're excited to confirm you can now catch us until 23 December 2023.


Join us for dinner as we add a little more sizzle to the Melbourne food scene. Book now to enjoy modern Cambodian cuisine one last time. 

modern cambodian cuisine returns

We've evolved from amok in Chapel Street, Windsor to now become mahob by amok and appearing in Hawthorn East for a good time, not a long time.

We've been working around the clock to bring modern Cambodian cuisine back, even if it's temporary. So gather your friends, family and the whole tribe to enjoy the punchy flavours amok was renowned for. And for those that have yet to try something different, we're excited to introduce our interpretation of modern Cambodian cuisine to your taste buds.

Remember we're here until December 2023 so visit us for a modern Cambodian feast you've been craving.

we're uniting people through food

Food brings the connection of kinship, love, joy and laughter. It nourishes us and heightens our senses. So we source quality ingredients and produce to help us create memorable experiences that are anticipated and savoured.


mahob is about sharing a meal together

It is customary for Cambodian families to serve communal meals for family and friends to share together. Life is special and every little moment is important. So let's enjoy our meals together, be present, love the moment we're living now, have fun, and be surrounded by everything that brings out the best in us.

Because it's these moments that create lasting memories that you will cherish.

​Please note: our pop-up venue is owned by the Riversdale Hotel thus owning the liquor licence, so there is no BYO.

chef’s signature dishes

Crowd favourites such as our Cambodian crispy fried chicken had to stay on as it would be criminal to deprive our guest's cravings for these morsels of goodness.

the classics

Our amok dishes have garnered a loyal following in the last seven years so we've brought some of your favourites back including our freshly shucked oysters with Kampot black pepper, truffle oil and mango boba,

new dishes that honour our roots

Growing up in Cambodian, chef Khmer has always loved the unique flavours of Cambodian food. He will be paying homage to these traditional dishes that have been passed on from generations and we're excited to be sharing them with you in the next six months.
