There is nothing I can fault with Mamak, especially the Roti. Fours years running I have used this place for lunch and dinner and both take out and eat in and have never been dissatisfied with either the quality or freshness.

Nice little Malaysian restaurant near china town. Generous portions, almost authentic Malaysian flavours. Some dishes can be little spicy. Overall a very satisfying experience during my visit.

This place reminds me of Malaysia. They even use the metal plates to serve their roti. I had kang kung belachan, chicken curry and roti. Food was excellent. The only complaint, if you could call it that, was Thea the place was too cramped and...More

Normally a queue for tables and if its a short one then I'd join the line. Authentic Asian food for sure and good quality. Rotis and Satay particularly good. Lots of other good Asian places in Sydney though.

It's an overrated restaurant. Environment, food and even thr service was just pathetic. Didn't enjoy our food thr. It was just a waste of money, mood, and holiday eating out 😔

We had a very good meal here. The atmosphere was very busy which gives it a bit of a "fast food experience" but on the other handside we did not have to queue up for long even though there were many people waiting to be...More

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
