Mamuk, Haymarket & Chatswood

'There is always such a massive line outside it'. 'I waited for over an hour for just a table'.

Yes, those are the complaints that you will usually hear if you want to dine at Mamuk. For me personally, I've waited for over 1 and half hours for just a table of 4 on a typical Saturday night. Was it worth it? ABSOLUTELY! Coming from a family with a bit of a Malaysian background, Mamuk in my opinion is so far the most authentic Malaysian restaurant I have been too in Sydney and it is definitely WAY WAY better than Tamasek and Chinta Ria.

Roti Cannai - $5.00

Their Roti Cannai can be a bit small and pricey however you probably can't find ones as good elsewhere! You may find it to be a bit oily however you do get the light and fluffy texture which is why it tastes so good! Their range of Roti is also quite extensive as they offer both savoury and sweet!

So for those who haven't tried and were turned off by the line? Give it a go, even if it means for you to wait almost 2 hours on a Friday/Saturday night!

- 15 Goulburn St, Haymarket, Sydney
- Soon to open in Chatswood! =D

Gotta go eat!!


  1. I always feel so intimidated by their long line! Even after I make it to a table, I don't know if I could dine in peace and not be pressured by hungry looks from outside haha. But I definitely want to try it out to see if it lives up to the hype!

  2. Ourbillplease - If you dont want to wait, check it out at lunch time. There are barely any lines, I have ever been able to just walk straight in and grab a table. It is a place you have to try because it is as authentic as you will get in Sydney. Try to keep those hypes down though just in case :)
