Headed to Mamak at 8:30pm on a Sunday night to try the much hyped roti - there was no line and we were seated (in the packed restaurant) straight away. Having eaten plenty of authentic Malaysian cuisine whilst in country I had high expectations -...More

We had to long up and wait outside for about 10 mins but was worth it. The food was just like in Malaysia and very fast as well considering how busy they are.

Had a not very satisfying seafood platter at Hyatt Regency (through Groupon), still a tad hungry, night food stalls, Mamak, oh yes, one of our favourites, 6 chicken satay sticks for $13, filled the gap and best food of the night

Traditional Malaysian food! Although you may need to wait outside the restaurant during dinner time, it worth! Beside, the curry is spicy so be careful of it! Apart from that, I would recommend you to try the fried vegetables and satay!

I would recommend never to go there. First you have to stand in the queue for hours and then would have to stand the rude behaviour. Avoid avoid avoid!!

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
