Mamak – Three good friends, Alan, Clement and Julian wanted to open a restaurant. Living in Sydney, they missed eating freshly made Roti Canai, sipping on frothy Teh Tarik and snacking on smoky Satay skewers. It was the food they loved from their youthful days in Kuala Lumpur. They decided to put their corporate careers on hold, pack their bags, and travel to Malaysia.
Returning to Sydney, they set up a market stall at Sydney’s Chinatown Night Markets. Every Friday, the guys honed in on their ‘roti-flipping’ and ‘tea-pulling’ skills, which resulted in a cult-following of people who would queue up for hours to eat their handmade Roti Canai, homemade Teh Tarik and authentic Satays.

“Mamak has been my all-time FAVOURITE Malaysian restaurant in Sydney. Now I can tell you this – the food here is outstanding, authentic and top of the class!! Even though some of the dishes here can be a little bit pricey, but it’s still worth it due to their delicious food. Also, it has a very nice atmosphere to dine at & great service (looking at their staff working and cooking in great cohesion). Definitely coming back here again! I also highly recommend people coming here and trying out this place.” -MakStory
The Malaya was founded in 1963 by Wong Tai See. A merchant seaman who migrated to Australia from Hong Kong in the 1940s.
Inspired by the aromatic and spice-driven Nonya flavours encountered by Wong See on his Southeast Asian travels, but shaped by the scarcity of exotic ingredients in 1960s Sydney, the original Malaya was forced to create its own unique recipes that challenged the then conservative Australian palate.
Today, The Malaya continues to serve Sydney diners its unique range of Southeast Asian cuisine, from the orginal 1963 signature recipes to a spectacular range of seafood dishes that reflect the beautiful waterfront location and contemporary restaurant space.
Salt and Pepper Scampi, Otak Otak, Satay Chicken, Prawn Laksa, Singapore Curry Fish, Kapitan Chicken, Duck Perchik, Szechuan Eggplant, Coconut Beef Rendang
“The food here is amazing. The curry chicken is surprisingly creamy and delicious. Views of Sydney harbour are beautiful. Prices are very reasonable. Large venue but seating is comfortable. I would suggest booking ahead.” -David Newman
