It was a let down. I had a relativeIy high expectation after reading positive reviews online.
l ordered the onion roti which arrived with 2 curry dips on the side. What went wrong there first was the roti; it was not crisp but soggy, the curry dips were too thick and sickly sweet. Nothing like the roti from Malaysia at all.
Now, the squid in sambal. The squid was cooked well but the sambal was horribly sweet. I can tell you that their Sambal sauce was sweeter than the bottled sauces!
The vegetarian curry was no better. Never in my 40 years of South east Asian food tasting have l had a Malaysian Vegetarian curry with zucchini in it and a consistency of a Dahl. Even in this dish they could not omit the sugar!
Will l go back to Mamak again? Maybe. Maybe not.
