Expected to queue for this popular Malaysian Eatery but must have timed it right. I love Malay food and in particular the Malay National Dish of Nasi Lemak that unfortunately I rarely get to try as I don’t eat meat or chicken. It was refreshing...More

You have to try it and may need a few visits as they have a very broad menu. But stay close to the front next to the chefs'. Observing their skills is just beyond awesome!

Our first proper meal in Sydney after an 8 hr overnight flight from SG It’s quite astonishing because the ones running the show are Chinese young adults rather than Indians or Malay uncles... We had the nasi kandar curry chicken and mee goreng. Mee goreng...More

Have been going to mamak for many years now. The food never disappoints and is full of flavours every time I visit. Always recommend everyone to visit if they want authentic Malaysian food. Will keep coming back!

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
