We read the reviews, saw the queue, gave it a go. The basic roti really was awesome - served as a crumpled flower, almost, deliciously sweet by itself and so light. It was definitely worth stopping by for. The rest - not so much. The...More

Came here for lunch and thought try something new. The roti's are very tasty with the daal and salsa. Main course curries, meat and veg, were tasty and not too spicy. The lunch menu is excellent value and good portions. Service was prompt.

Mamak is a well deserved restaurant with the line outside always long. I especially love the food and the atmosphere is warm and welcome. Great for families. Would recommend.

Got the recommendation for this place from my Malaysian friend so I knew it had to be good. The restaurant itself is on the smaller side so it gets very crowded especially around noon - 1pm and for dinner. The roti dishes were absolutely delicious!...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
