We arrived about 12.30am and there was no queue! First time ever I have been here when there is no queue.
We were seated straight away and our food came really quickly. We were in and out within 45 minutes which was perfect for us.
Food was sensational as always. So much flavour.
Can’t wait yo go back.

Went here in the CBD store after having been to Chatswood store many years ago.

Bit of a queue to get in but very busy on a Monday night.

We ordered roti canai each, lamb curry and chicken curry with rice.

Roti was amazing - authentic like you would get in Penang, curry sauce quite hot (spicy) on the palette.

Chicken curry (ayam) was best I have had outside of Malaysia. Delicious, generous serves of chicken - really good.

Lamb curry was also delicious, like a rendang but with more sauce.

Overall I had a fantastic meal. Very happy diner.

You need to queue up for this place, but it's only aboutt 10-15 mins. The service is very efficient. The food was great and quickly served. Had 6 satay, one roti and two main dishes with 2 soft drinks, paid $62. We were full. Couldn't try the sweet roti so need to come back soon!

Have been before but was disappointed this time.

Service was poor, but the food is ok. Not as cheap as you think when you look at the menu.

I think it is time to look at service quality.

Watching through the window is still fun.

Had wonderful fluffy roti chanai here with fish curry gravy ( decided to swop the lentil curry for another fish curry gravy. Supplemented it with peanut chilli sauce rojak and 6 skewers of juicy charcoal bbq-ed beef satay. Englishman hubby was initially reluctant to lunch at Mamak but when he started on the roti chanai and then the rojak and satay , there were only compliments in between the mouthfuls.
Well done Mamak.
Please can you set up in London or Surrey ( Guildford or Weybridge ) would be fantastic.
Woking would be even cheaper overheads. Thank you.
We would love to return tonight but the renown queues trying to get in for dinner starting at 5.30pm may be too much for me to wait.
