Masak Masak is a new casual Malaysian eatery on Smith St in a space where a couple of generic cafes have previously failed. In reinvigorating the space and changing its use I think it will do well, because there’s been nothing else like in the area since the closure of Roundhouse Roti a few years ago.

I had beef rendang with roti canai and my friend had soy braised pork with rice. The rendang was fantastic but the roti was a little dry, and my friend said her pork was very good. Both are $10 lunch specials which is very reasonable.

Like Yim Yam and others nearby, Masak Masak offers a limited lunch menu and a much broader dinner menu. That means I will have to return to try the stingray, satay and other delicious sounding things on the menu. I am sure I will be returning soon because Masak Masak is a welcome addition to Smith St.

    Mate, you were spot on re: comments Masak Masak it is one of most enjoyable Asian venues in melbourne , authentic however with a twist without losing the identity of its origin. We ( my family) have been on numerous occasions and are yet to be disappointed. Cuisine and service are to be commended. Hope it is around for a long time yet. Recommend to all a must try .

    I’ve recently tried the chicken rice recently, and unfortunately it was quite average. The fried kway teow was decidedly better, but portions could be a little more generous.
