Not place for Malaysian. It is in the disaster category. The seating is a bit awkward with a small number of tables inside and outside. That being said, the boss is stern as. Not a good start and I ordered my usual, chicken roti. There was more potato in the curry than chicken! And they weren't even good chicken pieces, with bones in and all the rest of it. The roti was also pretty burnt. Definitely on the steep side in terms of price.
We arrived as soon as they'd opened one Saturday to avoid any queues, and although we were the first ones there, the restaurant very quickly filled up! We really enjoyed their Indonesian fare - it was beautifully presented, and it was brought out speedily.
Having tried MAMAK for the first time, I was super impressed with the service in terms of speed if being seated to ordering, to having my food delivered.
It's a very relaxed but friendly atmosphere and I was excited to try the Roti Canai with Chicken Curry, with a side of dressed broccoli and a milo dunosaur. I thoroughly enjoyed the curry chicken and could've enjoyed it more if it were super spicy. The only off putting element was the oiliness across the top however this didn't distract from the aromatic flavours.
The roti was crispy, flaky and accompanied the curry perfectly and the broccoli suited the dish very well.
I look forward to coming back again to try more of their menu and would highly recommend MAMAK. Almost forgot, my milo dinosaur was so cute and took me back to childhood!
One of our favourite Malaysian places. Delicious food and good service. The atmosphere, based on its location, is awesome. Really great little place. Be sure to try their roti bread, as they are one of the few places in Auckland that make theirs fresh every time.
