    If you like it spicy, try the fish curry n ask for plain roti instead of the roti canai,Or you will just end up with a lot of curry. Must end your meal with the Roti bom accompanied with icecream!

    Mee Goreng is pretty decent, just a shy of pure authenticity. Don't forget to squeeze the lime all over and ask for chilli sauce if you want some chilli kick dancing.

    Awesome. Menu is small but really good. Service is lightning fast and all food arrives within 10 minutes of ordering. The drinks are excellent too. Never had anything I didn't like off the menu.

    A plate of roti- Ayam fried chicken and some teh tarik.... Heaven! You can't book here and the lines are long- so come here early e.g. 11:30am Organise your next hangout here using http://Chillwith.me

    Had to line up on the pavement to get in but it was TOTALLY WORTH THE WAIT! The lamb curry is delicious and the Roti Canai truly is as good as everyone had told me. Highly recommended.

    The coconut milk rice in Nasi Lemak and beef satay were less than ideal, but so far this has been the best Malay food I have ever had outside of Malaysia.

    The famous Malasian restaurant in Sdyney.The long line but it is worth the time for waiting.The Roti tissue,a crispy and sweet roit with ice-cream,is the dessert that I recommendes.

    Go for the classic roti canai. Ayam goreng is their version of fried chicken, totally delicious! And top it off with ice Milo. One of the best restaurants in Sydney!

    We always come back for more of their chicken satay and rojak salad. Curry isn't that nice. Roti are delicious. Come late at night no queueing.

    Mamak remains. The bastest. Have faith in the wisdom of random internet tips and stay away from the roti murtabak. The plainest roti is the original and the best. Egg roti bats one down.

    Chicken satay are so good, roti is great. Used to the queue but once you're in the food arrives very fast. Overall... I love this place.

    Sydney cult favorite with another in Chatswood. You'll queue but it's worth it. Roti's light and fluffy and they serve Milo with canned milk. Oh Malaysia, I miss you

    Ridiculously good roti from @mamakrestaurant. Be ready to queue up no matter what time you go because you will be queueing up and I promise it won't be short.

    It's gets extremely busy so you might be waiting a while. However, it's totally worth it. All the currys are fantastic.

    Don't get shocked by the line outside if you are in twos they can probably seat you easier which means they'll take you out of the queue directly to your table after 5 min!

    Go, leave your name on the list then duck around the corner to Red Bottle for a solid beverage selection. By the time you get back, you're in

    Best roti in Australia, I always dine here when in Sydney. Well worth the wait & ordinary service. It's like dining in Malaysia but without the constant heatwave.

    Avoid Friday nights if you are really hungry :) Best hit up the Chinatown markets (or get one of your friends to grab you something!)

    The best malaysian I've had in Australia. They listened to me and are coming to melb. This will save me $$$ on flights. Try the lamb Nasi lemak and tea Tarik

    Highly recommend the sambal prawns and slow cooked lamb curry! Perfectly compliment Mamak's signature roti canai.

    The Nasi Lemak is excellent, and the delicate, sugary roti tisu the perfect dessert treat. In fact, we're in here right now just to have a roti tisu before shopping :)
