If you want authentic malaysian chow you have to pay a visit to Mamak. Good food spicy if you like it that way not expensive. A word of caution the place is generally full at lunch and dinner so be prepared to wait other than that it is a fine plaçe to eat.

A friend brought me here as he had been often in the past and found it good value for money. The meals were ok but at 9pm, when we were half way through our mains, a lady staff member told us we had to go up and pay. She then stood there and waited for us to go up. We... More

The most popular restaurant in Chancery, Auckland. Majority of guests are Asian. Prices are reasonable, service is quick. Limited bar and prices are quite high but this is a fast food restaurant and takeout. Food is tasty.

This has become a real go-to whenever we visit Auckland. It's all good, the central location, the exceptionally tasty food, the excellent value, and the efficient service. The menu works for my unadventurous seven year old and my egg-allergic 12 year old just as well as it does for me, my wife, and my highly adventurous 10 year old. Get... More

I am visiting NZ from USA. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food at Mamak. The place is small but the service was great. Staff was very friendly. It gets busy so I recommend calling ahead and getting a reservation. Will go back again before I leave town.

A little Malaysian cafe with some outside seating in the Chancery area of town and with some the best Malay food we have had. It is a simple little place but the food is great and not expensive. We tried both the Prawn Randang and the Beef version and they were terrific. Loveley flavours from the meats and the coconut... More

Went there with a friend I hadn't seen in ages to catch up. Staff were very understanding when it took us a while to order. We eventually started with some dumplings which were delicious and then shared two of the main meals. The price was excellent and we had plenty to eat. The only down side is there isn't much...

Good food, hot as in hot from the kitchen, hot as you wanted the flavours. Quick service -but not rushed to eat even on a busy night. Amazing how the number of tables could expand as more people came and yet you didnt feel crowded. Effiicent service, reasonable prices. Loved the leek dumplings in the steam box. And the rest...

The TA reviewers so far seem divided on whether the food at Mamak is authentic to Malaysian cuisine; and I have insufficient experience to comment on this. What I can tell you is that this is one of my go-to places in Auckland when you want a meal which is delicious, filling, reasonably priced and comes without a lot of... More
