Not sure where to start with this review.... I'd been wanting to go to Melbourne Mamak, since it opened, after experiencing Sydney Mamak, which was an awesome experience. So I was looking forward to the same good food and service. We got there as soon...More

Have walked past many times and a friend suggested we try it. Great Satay and Roti selection. Allows BYO - bonus for us - but no wine glasses - good fun - very full and lots of noisy atmosphere. Cost was next to nothing between...More

I walked past a few times and have enjoyed looking at the skillful roti makers through the big window. Before 6pm and almost full. I didnt have to wait for my table but had to queue up to pay my bill. I cleaned my plate...More

Having now sampled meals from all of the Mamak restaurants in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide I ca say that they are consistent in their taste and standards. The original in Goulburn st in Sydney is still the best but this is mighty close. Fresh, light...More

The Nasi Lemak was incredible! The restaurant is also BYO (which is a plus). My husband and I will definitely be returning to Mamak!

The satay is excellent and as good as I have had in Brunei and Malaysia. The other food is also very good. The only downside is the speed of service, getting hit with everything at once.

Wow, what a place. Authentic Malaysian cuisine. Spicy with aromatic sauces and cardamon and cloves visible. We had the Kari ayam and the Nasi lemak with Sambal sotong cuttlefish. Both dishes were very tasty and just spicy enough. Any more and they would've been too...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
