Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We've tried plenty of Malaysian food chains in New Zealand, Aussie, Singapore and even Dubai - but nothing comes close to the Mamak in Auckland's Chancery Square's Curry Laksa. Save the hassle and just enjoy the meals here, the prices are very reasonable too if...you compare to what you're getting!More

The service was very good. We ordered two dishes -- see the photos. As opposed to other reviews, we found the size of the dishes to be substantial. A full plate of food. You can order no spice or spicy. The dishes we ordered were...$19 NZD. We ate inside the restaurant. The restaurant is tucked away inside an external mall that has many restaurants. It's a little tricky to find. We would've given a five out of five rating, except that the couches for seating are very worn and need replacement.More

A tiny restaurant which also does takeaways tucked away in central Auckland near the CBD. Authentic cuisine. Wide range of dishes. We had chicken satay, green beans and an enormous bowl of chicken laksa.

We had been to this restaurant a few years ago and were keen to try it once more. But never again. The chicken kebabs with satay sauce were dry and burnt. There was supposed to be cucumber and onion accompanying the kebabs, instead chopped cabbage....My dish of beef rending was acceptable but the cooked cabbage filling up the plate contained a human hair. Totally unacceptable.More

We have eaten at Mamak several times but this time brought our friends along and we couldn’t have been more impressed! Amazing atmosphere for groups as well as couples. Great food and great value for money too! We will definitely be back lots! I highly...recommend the seafood laksa and the spring rolls!More

Visited this restaurant for a quick lunch! Expectations were not on the service or the venue itself but more on the food. Sadly we both ordered a rendang (which is more an Indonesian dish) presentation and taste were basic but well seasoned based on the...price but nothing exceptional and to shout about. I was more surprised that our sparkling water (San pellegrino) came open to our table and after assessing the taste (I always order sparkling water at restaurants). I clearly felt I was being cheated on the water. As confirmation I could not see any San Pellegrino in their display fridges. Based on this experience I would not recommend this place. I would also suggest to the owners to either open mineral water to the table to avoid unnecessary suspicion but definitely not cheat their customers.More

We got Char Kway Teow and Chicken curry with roti bread. The Char Kway Teow had plenty of shrimp and was supplied with chili sauce on the side so I could spice it myself and there was lots of food. The inside tables were cramped...but at the time, the outside tables were too cold. We got takeout the next time with their version of Mee Goreng and another order of Char Kway TeowMore

I was very disappointed in this place. After visiting the mamak in sydney i was thinking mmmmm succulent rendang and warm crispy fluffy roti. Biiiiggg mistake. The roti was dry like a cracker and the rendang was dry and chewy. When i paid for the...bill the guy asked how was your meal? When i told him i was expecting a decent roti like mamak in sydney he was so fast to reply with "different company" I SAID OH OK SO THATS WHY THE ROTI WAS SO BAD? Do yourself a favour and avoid. There are some great cheap restaurants in auckland and this isnt one of them.More

Very uncomfortable seats - food ok but be careful to make sure what noodles you are ordering. I’ve never had Kuay Teow with egg noodles as usually made with rice noodles- so I couldn’t eat it as egg noodles have too much gluten. Not happy

Good food, service and clean location. A bit too salty and lack of any local craft beers would be my only complaints.

I had a huge portion of Nasi Goreng, which was cooked to my taste (spicy!). They serve beers too, which was appreciated. It is a nice space with inside and outside options, and wasn't too busy and noisy. The rice was a little too oily...for my taste, but that's a personal preference. I was very happy and would certainly come back again.More

Tiny little place with a few seats inside and out. May not look much but the food was really good. Lots of it so having only a main will not leave you hungry! The prawn laksa was in a mammoth bowl and delicious as was...the chicken/prawn rice, it was supposed to be chicken and they messed the order up so they cooked some chicken up and brought that out too. Rotis were equally delicious and the price did not break the bank, totally satisfied and full!More

A hidden gem! Awesome affordable Malaysian food. Large portions. The restaurant is a bit small and quickly filled up once we sat down. Takeaway is another option. Many vegetarian dishes available. Friendly and quick service.
