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 come here often as the Malaysian food taste authentic. Hubby always likes the Char Kway Teow or the roti with chicken curry. I like the chicken rice or the prawn/chciken rice noodles which to me is like the 'Ipoh haw fun' that I use...to have as a child in Malaysia. Their wontons are juicy and full of prawns, the Lawbak is another of hubby;s favourite. We have tried alot of their dishes and not one has disappointed.More

It is quite a nice Malaysian place and it is handy that they have parking outside the restaurant. They have plenty of tables but they do fill up. The menus are located on the counter. You do have to order at the counter though. I...stopped by again and noticed that they had a few new items on the menu. They also now have a vegetarian section which is handy for vegetarians. Most of the items are under $20 per plate. I had the curry puff and the sesame sauce rice noodles. I also tried some of the salt and pepper eggplant and that was really tasty, crispy and salty. The curry puff had a short pastry and the potato and egg filling inside weren't very spicy. The sesame sauce noodles was nice. It tasted mostly of the Japanese roasted sesame dressing which I like. It was topped with tomato and bokchoy. They had a soft shell crab laksa so that will be my next thing to try there.More

Looking for dinner we stopped at this restaurant then ordered Dirty Fried Rice ( a bit unusual name) and Kon Lon Mee. Wow, they were delicious - mainly the fried rice, with a big portion at affordable prices, and quick service. this one of good...dinner experiences for us.More

I discovered this lovely and authentic Malaysian eatery when I visited Greenlane dental next door. No regrets as I think this has become a favourite place for wanton mee and the best hokkien mee I have discovered in Auckland. Like: 1. They serve a good...menu with a lot of variety. They even have teh Tarik, curry puffs and soya bean milk! 2. Must orders are their hokkien mee - the broth is rich and so satisfying. Their wanton noodles are tasty, well plated as you can see from the photos and full of ingredients. Their roti canai is also good with a good chicken curry dip. 3. You see a lot of locals there which is also a good thumbs up for authenticity and taste. 4. Good ambience with a nice outdoor seating area. I have not tried their desserts or their wat tan hor which gives me another reason to revisit. Highly recommended if you want good quality authentic Malaysian food.More

Average to very good .... BA KU TEH pork belly and rib meat could have done with more cooking to tenderize and whilst the broth was tasty it lacked depth of a real Malaysia BKT. Dishes are large and the vegetable items quite delicious, especially...beans or eggplant. Fried rice dishes can easily serve two persons.More

This is a brilliant local eatery. The Laksa & Mee Goreng were sensational. Bought a take-away meal here three nights out of four. Incredibly friendly staff. Highly recommended

Great place with limited outdoor seating. We ordered loh bak roll, nasi lemak with beef rendang, and roti canai with chicken curry. Can't wait to go back and try more dishes, although I'd happily go back just for the beef rendang.

Easy to miss since it is hidden on the side of the building across the road from the Greenland McDonalds. Place is decently sized and has both indoor and outdoor seating. We came in and were given menus after being seated. Menu had quite a...few items which looked really interesting. They have classic favourites like the char kweh tiew. We then had to go up to the counter to order and pay. It is mostly help yourself, which includes the water. i had the dirty rice which came with a fried chicken cutlet. It was quite nice and the portions were ok. The place isn't too pricey, with most items under $20. Nice food so it is a place where you would want to come back to try the other items.More

Had been wanting to go here Since long time ago as I had heard heaps about the restaurant but was slightly disappointed the food was not very authentic and below average Malaysian cuisine. Had Nasi lemak - Beef rendang nothing made a mark, not even...the sambal. Still Cant beats Selera Newmarket.More

Compelled to stay in Auckland overnight I stumbled across Mamarich on my walk down to the supermarket opposite. Relieved of the need to buy ingredients for dinner I returned after it had opened for dinner ( 5pm ), and sat down to prawn dumplings, chicken...and corn soup, and beef rendang. I thought that this was a bargain at $35, and there was plenty of food.... Clearly a Chinese Malaysian restaurant, but none the worse for that. Service was very fast, and very friendly.More
