It takes a lot for something I've enjoyed eating to play on repeat in my mind..over & over... & tucking into the most delicious Roti Canai & dessert Roti Tisu at Mamak in Chatswood is guilty in the 1st degree in every sense of the term. I have now dined here 3 times since 24th December 2012 (Christmas Eve) & I still can't get enough of the sensational crisp, light, 'fluffy' roti (roti canai) which is dipped in a wonderful chickpea &/or chilli sauce. A 'scrunch' of this alongside Mamak's famous version of KFC chicken & you'll forget Colonel Sanders ever existed! Top this all off with Mamak's beautiful, tissue-like 'cone' of gentle buttery "sweetness" i.e. the roti tisu & you will think your Christmas's (or birthdays) have indeed all come at once. A little 'tip' here is to order an extra serve of ice cream along with your roti tisu & while you're waiting take a peek in the kitchen as your roti is being stretched into airy thin-ness. There are some lovely curries & other delicious choices on the menu & while it is a little noisy, who am I to deny others the joy while enjoying the Mamak dining experience? The treat for the taste-buds is worth every minute of it!

There is usually a bit of a wait to get a table, even if you book. But the food is certainly worth the wait and is good value for money.

This is a great place to eat. Go early so you don't have to queue. The food is delicious and authentic. The prices are very reasonable. You won't be disappointed!

Why Mamaks gets great reviews is beyond me. The food is OK but nothing special. service poor because restaurant is trendy 'this week". So many good restaurants in Chatswood Mamak is just one of many.

We were in Sydney for a wedding and arrived Friday evening, exhausted after a 12 hour drive from Brisbane. We headed straight out to find food as we were starving and came across Chatswood's 'Eat Street'. I had read the reviews of Mamak and was happy to find it. We were just early enough to be seated straight away but it was already pretty full. We ordered Roti, Sate and a curry with rice and worried we'd have enough but we shouldn't have - there was plenty. Everything came really quickly and it was all absolutely delicious. The meal cost us about $35 and seemed ridiculously cheap for the quality. I wish we had one in Brisbane!
