“Speedy with service, tasty and affordable. What else can you ask for.

Love the roti and the satay, with a nice ginger milk tea, hits the spot. Yum” (Mamak Haymarket)

“Although a very busy restaurant on weekends, you don’t feel any slow service. The staff take your order quickly, the food arrived on time. Generous serving size. Chicken curry was spicy but delicious. Saray was also a hit. Definitely recommend this place. Reasonably priced too.” (Mamak Chatswood)

“Busy Malaysian restaurant. Tasty roti with a variety of dips, satay with delicious peanut sauce. When ordering some dishes they say it will take 20 minutes but comes much quicker. Good variety of noodle and rice dishes. Did not try the desserts.” (Mamak Melbourne)
