It is a nice place to change a bit, not the usual burger but neither the same old Japanese restaurant. A lot of different meals and choice, even for typical drinks, which I recommend to try. The atmosphere isn't that special, but the food and the right price make up for it. I'm looking forward to go back.

I was in Malaysia back in November and was craving for some good Malaysian food as it is one of my favourite cuisines. Mamak is legit! I got the chicken curry roti and it tasted the same as the ones I ate in Malaysia. The rotis were so fresh and flaky and the chicken curry was so flavourful! The chicken... More

Not terrible considering the price, but tastes very similar to food court / train station meals. Too salty, not fresh, and the noodles tasted like any chinese takeaway. Definitely overrated.

The meal was terrific (and gigantic). My wife's Chicken Murtabak came with a chilli sauce, spicy leek and dahl/bean sides; I over-ordered, starting with delicious Salt and Pepper Squid, followed by a Chicken Curry,which was served with two roti. It was a lot of food! It all arrived at table piping hot and fresh; the overall impression was one of... More

Mamak have a well deserved reputation in Auckland for being a fantastic Malaysian restaurant. The homemade roti is to die for and the staff are friendly. I am working my way through all of the dishes on the menu with my favourite being the Roti Curry Chicken

Met a group of friends here for dinner, it was delicious. Pretty good options, and the prices are really good, especially for Auckland. The staff are attentive, and the location is really good too! I had the curry puffs and the 'mamak' mee goreng, and I could choose how spicy I wanted the mee goreng (mild!). My friends got the... More

Well positioned in the Chancery Square area of eateries. Very tasty and reasonably priced. Reminds me of visits to Malaysia. The beef rendang was great and the roti is really excellent. They are happy to substitute for rice. The staff juggled tables to make us comfortable.

We've eaten here often in the last few years - I've never been disappointed. The flavours are sumptuous, portions generous. Service is appropriate to the price, which is cheap! Laksa is a favourite, as is the classic Rendang, the tofu, and the roti. It's fun sitting people-watching in Chancery too - I always like it outside, even if the stools... More

My wife had the beef Murtabak, and I had the seafood laksa. Both meals were a good size and very tasty. Washed down with a small bottle of beer each , the total was $42. This is a reasonable price in generally expensive city.
