    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
  • Denea G.
    Denea GourmetRabbitJanuary 18, 2011
    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
  • Tommy C.
    Not worth the report 30+ min wait, get there early as the restaurant opens & you should be able to get in on the first round of seating w/o wait. Food is ok, not the best. The star here is the roti.
  • Gwenny H.
    Gwenny HubertJanuary 11, 2016
    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!
  • Bodie S.
    What is not good. Had almost all the menu and i still love going for a roti canai or planta with chicken curry followed by some satay sticks or even some fish curry.
  • George W.
