We went here seeing the great reviews and the food definitely lived up to them! We tried the roti canai, chicken satay and nasi lemak - all three were spot on to the extent that I couldn’t really pick a favourite! The place has a...More

This place looks dodgy from the outside but there is always a line to get in. The line moves fairly quickly though and it is worth it. You can see the chefs cooking from the window making the roti's as well. Food is authentic, tasty...More

If you've never had Mamak food in Malaysia itself, I guess the price in this restaurant is considered affordable for Sydney. But, if you have been to Malaysia before, the price will give you a heart attack. The chicken curry with the roti was insanely...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
