Waiting in line for 30 minutes, check. Seated and asked to order within the first 5 minutes, check. Food comes out after 2-3 minutes, check.
Ok, it seems that my first two sentences are reporting Mamak's negative marks and the third is for their positive mark. But No! All three above are their negative marks.
Queuing for a while and then got asked to order quickly has never left me a good feeling. And then we order some dishes (kangkung, fried chicken, satay chicken) and they all came out after just 2-3 minutes. Even the grilled satay! This actually makes me wonder. Are all the food pre-made and just need to reheat? There are 3-4 tables that got seated 10-15 minutes before us (we've chat with this other table on the queue), order just when we sat down and got their food around the same time after they ordered (2-3 minutes).
Well, for the price they listed, pre-made or frozen food is not good enough! Taste, it was ok for pre-made food, but you can taste that the meat was frozen (especially the satay chicken). Service is really quick (from "asking" our order to "cleaning" our table after we just finish eating) until you try to call the waiter to get some water.
Overall, we are impressed by how this restaurant manage to get the long queue every day. But no, we will not come back to this one. Maybe try the Chatswood branch one day, but certainly not to this one.
