expired Free Roti @ Papparich (App Download Required) With Purchase of Main Meal

1212

Download the Papparich app and redeem a free roti worth $6.90. I ordered their curry chicken for $6.90 (if I'm not wrong) to make it a meal. Tastes great, wasn't a dhal meal at all.

From T & C:

Offer can only be redeemed with a purchase of a main dish (Main dish refers to any dishes from our Rice, Noodles and Vegetarian section)

    Are you trying to curry favour with me, OP? Well, it's working. Thanks.

    Edit: This app needs far too many permissions. I'm going to delete it after claiming the roti. And probably put it on a spare phone.

    • +2 votes

      Well it's purpose is to spy on you and helpfully nag you with advertising you don't want so it's probably a good idea.

    • +1 vote

      Ok, that does it. Based on the stinginess of the offer as reported below and the intrusiveness of the app, I've deleted it, and won't bother claiming.

    WARNING! Do not click "Redeem" on the app yourself before approaching the cashier to pay. There is fine print saying that staff only should click this to make it valid for use. I only say this as my housemate just came home all flustered after having to fight with Papa Rich (QV Melbourne) over getting the free roti. Apparently a few people have been duped so far.

      How does one get duped if it's in the terms and conditions?

      • +8 votes

        yeah because everyone reads all the terms and conditions don't they…

        •  

          Yeah those mongrels at Papa Rich, they have some nerve giving free food away. It's their fault for covering themselves and not the user's. /s

    • +5 votes

      That's pretty poor form, my waitress actually explained not to click redeem until I went to pay at the end

      The stupidest thing about the app though is the rewards scheme. If you have a look, you only earn ten points per dollar spent, but an iced drink will set you back 3000 points and a laksa 6000 points! So you have to spend $600 before even getting a decent meal back. I deleted it the next day.

      yep $6.90 for a single roti canai is the biggest ripoff I have heard of..
      Even Mamak only charge $5 or $5.50 and they are damn expensive…

      especially considering the Papparich roti canai are most likely the frozen variety which cost about 20c each…

          I'm still on the lookout for somewhere that I can get a decent thick style appam balik with sweet corn and peanuts in Sydney. Hawker does the crispy ones, but its the thick crumpet style ones that I crave.
          I've been known to arrange stopovers in Singapore during O/s work trips just so that I can call into the markets at Bugis and grab a few. My favorites stalls though are both from Penang - Georgetown (just near Chinatown) and Fettes Road.

          Sorry didn't realise you were from Melbourne.. and because I'm not from Melbourne I'm not as familiar, but I've tried:

          • Sarawak Kitchen (previously called Kitchen Inn) next to Victoria Market, CBD - I really like their Kolo Mee/Kampua Mee
          • Laksa House (previously called Coconut House) - down the road from Sarawak Kitchen - they have decent Laksa from memory
          • Laksa King in Flemington? I think that was their name..
          • Petaling Street - Box Hill? Carnegie? and CBD

          Sorry as I said not from Melbourne so my knowledge and familiarity of the places is a bit patchy!

          @billyb67: Me too!

          Cinta Rasa is not bad too btw
          A little cheaper and a little smaller.

          There's also a new one a couple of doors from Albee's Kitchen called Penang Hawker which I haven't tried yet, but would like to try.

          There's another one opposite Albee's called Golden Crown Yummy Restaurant (funny name) - they have pretty good Bak Kut Teh but I am not a fan of Bak Kut Teh.

          Albee's Kitchen is still the best for curry puff though!

        •  

          @illumination:

          yeah Laksa King is definitely supposed to be one of the best in Melbourne,
          I was down that way last week but ran out of time to eat there :(

          @billyb67:

          I can vouch for that after countless bowls of combination Laksa

    •  

      For $6.90 I'd assume their roti is massive. Can anyone confirm?

      • +3 votes

        From what I have been told (friend who ate there), they are slightly bigger than a CD. Definitely not the "standard" size you get in Malaysia.

        Hardly a bargain in my opinion.

        Yes I can confirm. I went to redeem this offer weeks ago when the FB post was posted. Didn't post it as a deal as I was disappointed with the meal.

        • +3 votes

          Oh, forgot to mention that the free roti is one plain roti without any sauce. If you want curry sauce, it's $1.50.

          I can't think of anywhere in Malaysia where you'd buy a piece of roti without getting free curry sauce. It's just SAUCE after all.

          @moocher:

          Haha that is so true.. you can even get extra sauce, or several variety of sauces if you want for free just by asking too.

          However.. you don't often get charged for water in Australia, but you do in Malaysia. Water (or "Sky Juice") is one of the few things that is cheaper in Australia than Malaysia. I suppose it makes sense though, given that you shouldn't drink tap water in Malaysia.

    I must be the only one that hates the food at Papa Rich.

    • +2 votes

      I've been to several outlets including in Malaysia, Sydney and Melb. The quality can vary depending on the outlet even though it's meant to be a franchise. The ones in Australia aren't quite up to scratch compared to Malaysia (and even then a really good hawker stall beats that). If you're in Sydney, I'd avoid the one in Macquarie centre - the worst of the lot. Chatswood is better. But then again, if you're in Chatswood, might as well head into Chef Rasa Sayang.

      •  

        I'm in Melbourne, I've been to the QV one and the one in Knox I think. Both times I didn't enjoy the food.

        I don't know why you'd ever want to go to Pappa Rich in Malaysia though…I guess maybe it's a similar thought to how people when they visit other countries want to try the all the fast food restaurants they know back home to see the difference.

        •  

          Agreed. Most, if not all PR's in KL have closed now. I only ever saw locals drinking/eating their western foods, that market is saturated with many Starbucks style shops there nowadays.

    •  

      I find they make decent quality food (obv. not on the same level as what I ate in malaysia) though I normally just stick to nasi lemak (the laksa, chicken/rice etc. is so-so). Their prices are high for what you get but in Perth there aren't any other mid range options!

      • +1 vote

        If you're in Perth, there's better roti at Sarapan in Vic Park imo.

      •  

        I have been looking for great Char Kway Teow all around Perth (the Penang version, not the gross sweet Singapore version) and its SO hard to find an authentic tasting one with the char taste. All the Papparich outlets I've tried has the most authentic tasting CKT, even though its about 7x more expensive than the price I pay in KL, I'll pay for a taste of home ^_^

        •  

          taurus hawker down in willetton not good enough or tak chee in northbirdge.

        •  

          @t25: nah, dont rate Taurus or Bamboo at all. Not sure why there is so much hype. Tak Chee was good, but not as good as Pappa's

        •  

          I also don't like the Singapore CKT. Best one i've found in Perth is Hawkers Cuisine in Northbridge, Malaysian style. I actually order a dry beef Ho Fun and ask them to spice it up, wok hei is noticeable.

          Others that aren't too bad -

          Billy Lees (Northbridge) - again, dry beef ho fun
          Lezat (Willetton)- CKT, recently tried but will need to go back to confirm which I might do this weekend. Note, there is a mamak type shop next door doing roti chani's, they aren't good.
          Malaysian Hawker (Wembley food court) - CKT.

          It's good to go later to any of these places if you want good wok hei in your dish, that way the flavours build up in the wok.

          Agreed with your other post re Bamboo/Taurus. Taurus was originally good, but they sold out and it went downhill. The old Taurus owners opened Bamboo.

          I've always found Hawkers Cusine to be the best for all Malaysian/Singaporean hawker foods, roti chani (no variety though)/curry laksa is good they also have a spinoff called Old Lane Street East in their old spot in China Town which is decent too, same chef came up with the dishes.

          Been to Papparich both here and KL, in KL I wouldn't dream of eating their street foods, its nowhere near as good as the street hawkers and every time I go to PR in Perth, I walk away partially disappointed.

          I've been going to Malaysia a few times a year for about 10 years, eat at the hawker/mamak stalls both permanents and at pasar malams almost exclusively so always on the look out for decent hawker/mamak foods in Perth :)

        •  

          @Kizz: yass omg I cannot eat SG CKT at all… I have no idea why people would enjoy sweet noodles?!!

          Malaysian Dining Delights in Bentley is quite good, but closer to my house we go to Ah Wongs on Parry Ave, food portion is quite decent there and prices are same for lunch and dinner. But now the other Bullcreek Hawker restaurant on the other side does huge lunch portions too! Haha, me and my mum will just order one plate and share.

          Wembley good court has good CKT, but the standout place there (or was, havent been there for a year) their dimsum stall! The salted egg bun and the fried squid best I've had.

          I keep trying to go to Enak , but everytime it was closed! Finally I got out of the car and took a picture of opening times, will try to head there eventually…

        •  

          @kza2610:

          Rasa Enak in Greenwood? It's near me and I've seen the name but was reluctant to try due to it being in a 'Western Area'. will read reviews on Zomato now, thank you!

          There was a Penang lady (Hawkers Delight) who did the best Chai Tow Kway, firstly at the Wanneroo markets, then a few years ago at the Subiaco markets which are now gone. Would love to find her again. She also did a decent CKT but I could never go past her CTK. Actually, just did a search and it seems she's back at the Wanneroo markets, think i'll go there tomorrow!

          Wembley's Salted egg bun sounds good, I must get across from work at lunchtime and try.

          Still need to find a decent Assam Laksa, know any, preferably NOR?

        •  

          @Kizz: ohhh no I meant the one in Wiletton area sorry, on Rostrata Ave. I live SOR and dont really venture up NOR to eat (except for some Banh Mi's and Pho occasionally :) )

        •  

          @kza2610:

          Found it, on Apsley Rd, i'm down that way over the next few days, will see if I can make it there. Thanks kza!

        •  

          @Kizz: if u wanted Assam Laksa, I just saw a post from 'Lepak' in Bateman, they do it on Thursday, and people wrote in the post that its good :) (i havent tried myself, but Ah Wongs on Parry Ave do A.Laksa on weekends too : https://www.facebook.com/bullcreekhawker/)

          heres the post : https://www.facebook.com/lepakkopitiam/photos/a.160802872611...

        •  

          @kza2610: I haven't been to Taurus in quite a while. So definitely wasn't aware that they changed ownership. These days, I'm flying to Singapore/Malaysia every 6-12 weeks that I can eat up whilst I am there, so my craving for local Singapore/Malaysian cuisine has dropped when I come back to Perth.

    •  

      It's alright I think, but for its price, there are nearly always better options for Malaysian food.

  •  

    When I redeemed mine (Brisbane) they actually give you a paper voucher to use. That voucher has a longer expiry date (June or July I think), so you could probably still claim your free roti even if you don't actually eat there by 23/4.

    And yeah had a look at the points system, works out to about one free meal after 40 similar meals! Terrible value.

    Most deceptive ad ever.

    The offer is a free roti WITH a main meal. Putting THAT in the fine print cost them probably $20-30 dollars as I popped in to give it little try today, only to be told a main meal was required to be purchased. So instead of knowing this upfront and organising to have lunch or dinner with someone, they've lost my money and in wasting my time and in not respecting this, my patronage indefinitely.

  •  

    I went to the Adelaide Papparich yesterday and they only allowed us to claim the $4.90 Roti instead of the $6.90 one as mentioned.

    https://files.ozbargain.com.au/upload/12716/48409/dsc_1157.j...

    It's the E24 they gave us…

    •  

      The sauces must be made of gold if they are that stingy. I mean, dipping roti into some curry sauce isn't going to break Papparich's profits.

      •  

        I showed them the OzBargain page and said it says the Roti worths $6.90. They said the deal is only for the E24 one. I couldn't find it anywhere that mentions about the $6.90 Roti…
