The Lamb Curry in particular is amazing. The wait in the queue outside is well worth it. If visiting Sydney pay this place a visit!

Have eaten here a few times. The food is nice (but you must like curry to appreciate the menu), the service substandard and the atmosphere average. If you just want a quick meal then it's ok. If there is a line then don't bother!

I love Asian food, but for the first time I found not all Asian food. It isn’t that I disliked Mamak, just that I didn’t like it. Sure there are lines, sure it was busy, sure lots of people liked it, just not me. Something...More

Before this restaurant appeared a few years ago at the far end of Goulburn Street (the Star Hotel end) there was nothing that really showcased locally what Malay food was or could be. Mamak changed that at a stroke! We stumbled on it a few...More

Mamak has great Malaysian street food here. Quick service and the quality is quite good. My favorite is the Nasi Lemak. There is usually a queue outside but it moves quickly.

Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the
entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk
through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where
aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers
transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors
can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the
