MamakÂ is an award winning MalaysianÂ restaurant, with branches in Sydney and Melbourne. Named after the roadside stalls of Kuala Lumpur that peddle Indian Malay street food, MamakÂ is renown for authentic, bold and traditional flavours, with smart and friendly service.
Three good friends, Alan, Clement and Julian wanted to open a restaurant. Living in Sydney, theyÂ missed eating freshly madeÂ Roti Canai,Â sipping onÂ frothyÂ Teh Tarik and snacking on smoky Satay skewers. It was theÂ foodÂ theyÂ loved from their youthful days in Kuala Lumpur. They decided to put their corporate careers on hold, packÂ their bags, and travel to Malaysia.
In 2007, the first restaurant openedÂ in the heart of the Sydney CBD. Mamak, named after the roadside stalls that peddle Indian Malay street foodÂ became an instant hit with the locals.Â Crowds gathered, lines extended out the door and queues wrapped around the block.
