I always make a point of going to Mamak when I'm staying in the area. If only I could convince my colleagues to eat here every night, I would. Definitely ranks in my top 3 favourites in Australia. Just keep bringing on the Roti Canai...More

The pest restaurant service you could possibly ever get in sydney. They may have great food they may have a queue outside but horrible. I would never ever go there in my life, after waiting for one hour they were teaching me what policy is...More

I enjoyed the food. But it is good just as other places. I went there at 2pm so didn't wait. I wouldn't line up for this. This is good for this price. I think the reason why this place is super famous is good price.

Amazing to pass the place with a full house, reviews on the windows etc, and see it packed out, with a queue of around 10 on the street waiting to get in on a Friday Night, so Sunday late lunch it was...but hidden beneath the...More

We ordered only a small meal however the home made roti was superb and the dipping sauces so yum. The satay chicken were cooked perfectly and we're so delicious with the satay sauce.

I had tried to eat here before and the queue had put me off....but boy was the wait worth everything. Inside the dining decor is simple with small tables and some stools or fixed benches. Classic chicken Kari ayam and spicy slow cooked lamb stood...More

I'm a Malaysian and certainly know what constitutes as good Malaysian food. Unfortunately, this place certainly does not deserve your time waiting during peak dinner hours, and even when it's not that busy, I don't think I would come back. We ordered nasi lemak with...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
