I was presently surprise when walked pass Mamaks in melbourne apparently I went on opening night and it was packed, I knew what was good and ordered and loved it. My first experiance was a trip to Sydney I looked up places to go and they said if there's a cue then it's good and visited Mamaks in Sydney. We of course went a few times on our stay and loved it.
Id call it an experience of something recommended if looking for an affordable place to eat, most dishes I'd share with another.
It's not a cafe its not quite but when ive been its been busy, it's a social gathering a place to meet after a long day at work and another style of eating in the varse selection melbourne has to offer I'd go back I like busy and culture
