Due to work, I have chances to visit a lots of cities and countries. From Japan Tokyo to Ireland Limerick, I've never seen a restaurant service like Mamak Melbourne. They served dessert before main course, I remembered I ordered DESSERT, the dessert was large size, and within ice cream, avoided melting, my friend and I tried to have some, in... More

By about 6pm the place was full - of Asian people. I always figure if an Asian restaurant is full of Asians, it's going to be good - and it was. The roti's were perfectly cooked, the satays delicious and the satay sauce to die for. Quite traditionally served. Meals came out quickly. Dessert - think it was called Ice... More

While somewhat daunting for a vegetarian at a cursory glance at the menu, Mamak provides outstanding vegetarian options (perhaps a little too much a single trick pony) -- we enjoyed the rotis of all kinds. The desserts were excellent.

Best roti bread hands down - great place for lunch after shopping in the city. Staff are very attentive and quick with orders, you never have to wait long for your food. My husband loves the lamb curry!

We really enjoyed our foodora purchase from this restaurant. All of our dishes were nice and look forward to going back next time we are in Melbourne.

This is the third time we have visited a Mamak restaurant, once in Sydney and twice here in Melbourne. Food is always very tasty, fresh and fast. Staff are helpful and friendly. We had dinner here before going to a show in the city and it was a great meal, relaxed, cheap and cheerful! Hint: If you want to slow... More

As always, I am generally very cautious when I visited a Singaporean/Malaysian restaurant and did not want to set my expectations high. However, Mamak exceeded my expectations in food quality and authenticity and I applaud it for that. Prices are Australian, so do be prepared.

The city is full of Asian eateries and Mamak is consistently above average. Loud, vibrant and relaxed our Sunday lunch ticked several boxes, it had to be kid friendly, (food and atmosphere), reasonably priced and authentic. I had the Rojak for the second time and my dining companions had chicken, roti and veggie curry. We all had the delicious lime... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
