“Nice Malaysian Food in the City Centre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2015

There is a lot of Malaysian Restaurant in Auckland, one of them is Mamak Malaysian Restaurant.
The food were really nice and yummy, we have tried Mee Goreng (Fried Noddle), the Malaysian Traditional Menu Nasi Lemak with Beef and the renowned Roti Chicken Curry Malaysian style.
All were above average, nice dinner treat for us, and worth to visit.
The restaurant is located in the city centre, a bit hiding behind high rise buildings, unless if you walk, using car, on the road parking could be a problem.
Service was good and quick, expect waiting to be seated in the peak dinner time.

“Nice roti canai but too little dhal and sambal sauce to go with.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2015

I always go to this restaurant whenever I'm in Auckland city but on this particular visit (the first time I tried the roti canai) I was a bit disappointed when I saw the amount of sauce that came with it, so I asked for a bit more but even more disappointed when told that it will cost me an extra $2 for more. Definitely not the authentic way to serve/enjoy roti canai in Malaysia.
Next visit I will definitely not going to have roti canai again and won't recommend friends unless their serving portion change. I wish I have taken a photo to show.

“Really nice Malaysian food – great lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2015

Busy, busy place during lunch hours but you do not have to wait too long for your food, which arrives steaming hot. I had seafood laksa, absolutely full of flavor, as good as it gets. Generous portion sizes. All mains are around 14 NZ dollars, totally worth it. Great place for lunch if you like Asian food.

“A Great Way to Start a Journey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2015

Mamak was the first restaurant we ate at after our arrival in Auckland. It was a tad hard to find (it's in a shopping plaza in the city centre), but utterly worth it. We had dumplings and the beef rendang-- both fantastic, and possibly the best meal we had during our two-week sojourn in NZ.
