The food here is excellent - our experience was specifically with Roti. We were a group of 7 and tried every Roti on their menu and all were really tasty. Their service was very good and they warn you the Roti Bom desert will take...More

What a gem of a restaurant. Super fast service. Delicious food. Highly recommend the satay chicken skewers. Be prepared to wait for a table-you won’t be disappointed.

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

It was a Friday evening, and everywhere around was heaving with people. Nevertheless Mamak’s was the only restaurant with a queue of eager potential diners waiting outside - and with good reason! As one table emptied a group or couples were admitted and shown to...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.

We eat two dishes, one was prawns with rice (absolutely delicious) and other plates chicken curry with rice. The last one, was tasty, but I missted more chicken. Also, the local should be include beer in the menu.

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

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
