Simply wonderful, tasty, spicy Malay food cooked fresh as you watch. No bookings, just get in line. Tables for 2 will get in quicker but hell, whatever, its worth the wait. The best Roti I have had, and the currys are world class.

You need to line up for this place but it is worth the wait. The roti bread is to die for and the meals are very nice. It is a small place so there is not much space between tables but it didn't worry us....More

Great flavours, great atmosphere, great location, and all served up with great service at a great price. This was our second visit, and we enjoyed the Mee Goreng, the Nasi Goreng, and some chicken satay. Simply superb.

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
