Mamak (Chatswood) – Very tasty Roti, spicy chicken and sweet coffee

Restaurant: Mamak (Chatswood)
Address: Shop P9, 1-5 Railway Street, Chatswood 2067

I know I am a little behind on the Mamak train, I have never tried Mamak until last night. When I lived in the city, I would walk past Mamak every night and there would be a huge line. I always wanted to try it, but never really had the patience to line up. After all of these years, I finally decided to try the restaurant in Chatswood with my partner. The long wait was worth waiting and I don’t know why I didn’t try this sooner!
I am a huge fan of Roti and having browsed the menu prior to going to the restaurant I was keen to try Mamaks Roti! 

 Murtabak ($12) (Lamb or Chicken)


We decided to order the Murtabak ($12) with lamb and inside had spicy lamb, cabbage, onion and eggs. The menu does specify that this will be a 15 minute wait. Once it came out it looked amazing! All the ingredients were rolled up into the Roti and then cooked over a hot plate. The Roti also came with 2 dipping sauces and chilli sauce, absolutely delicious.


We then also ordered the Chicken Satay skewers ($9 for 6 pieces). These were scrumptious, very generous with the sauce in a bowl. The textures were very divine and I thoroughly enjoyed these.

Mamak’s Classic Chicken - Kari Ayam ($16)

Our final dish we chose was Mamak’s Classic Chicken - Kari Ayam ($16). My friend told me prior to going that this would be a bit spicy for me. The chicken pieces were very tender; I think the chicken used were thigh pieces. At first I started eating and didn’t realise there was bones in the chicken, so be careful when eating this. The chicken was very tasty with boiled rice and not too spicy for me and I don’t usually eat spicy food.

Kopi Tarik ($4), Malaysian white coffee

My partner also ordered Mamak’s Kopi Tarik ($4), Malaysian white coffee. This was very interesting as it was in a mini pint glass. The coffee was all foamed up and looked amazing. The taste was even more surprising, it was very sweet. When we paid the bill the waiter told us that the coffee is mixed with condensed milk and that is why it taste soooo good, but sooo bad if you have too many.


Later when we walked outside of the restaurant I got to watch the chefs make the Roti from the outside window. I hope I didn’t creep him out a bit because I stood there for about 5 minutes lol. It was very interesting to see how they create the Roti, they have a little ball and they roll it out like a pizza into a flat sheet and then add the ingredients and fold it up.



Exciting evening in Chatswood, trying Mamak for the first time and it was a great experience. Our bill came back $50 even and I was expecting it to cost more. Cheap food, delicious food and tasty coffee. 

Until Next time foodies!
