Mak N Ming
Most unique and inventive brunch in Vancouver!
Special restaurant with delicate decoration. Simple but beautiful and right on spot. Foods are well balanced and creative to make fusion cuisine an excellent experience. Few details made the experience unforgettable.
This restaurant was wonderful in every respect...the food was creative and absolutely delicious...the service was perfect and we had a good time besides. As New Yorkers, we have had tasting menus in some of the finest restaurants and this one can stand among them.
Awesome. Best meal. Great service.
Maybe one of the best in Vancouver!!!
We had our 10th anniversary dinner here recently. The food was delightful and fresh, and thoughtfully presented. The wine pairing is definitely recommended. Real candles would have added to the ambience, the decor is contrast between concrete and felt, soft and hard. Slightly dimmer lighting would have felt more cozy. The price is definitely for a special occasion and not a spontaneous night with girlfriends, but we loved the experience and they had a couple of thoughtful touches for us at the end that we really appreciated. Service was excellent.
It’s for my wife’s 60 years old Birthday, tried to find something special for the special day. Believe me, Mak n Ming is the one you never missed! Kampachi sashimi definitely reached Michelin star quality, not only the Sakura dish setting but the food is delicious.
Western meet eastern created the impressive and gorgeous dishes, and service is great outstanding. Trying wine pairing which is awesome. Thank Chef Amanda and chef Ono brought us such an amazing dinner.
second time - really liked it but the price went up and I was a bit disappointed value food-price wise ; might not come back for a third time in a while ... other great restaurants for a better fair price point.
Service was great! Food had some good dishes but also some that I wasn’t a fan of (fishy flavoured dessert)
Great flavors, interesting combinations and wonderful wine matching.
Always tasty and original courses, delicate and thoughtful cuisine
World class gourmet dining at local prices. The owners are lovely to boot.
We were extremely impressed with the food and service of Mak N Ming! We found it on Eater’s list and was easily the best restaurant experience we’ve had in Vancouver. The flavors and textures were so sophisticated, and we love that it was a tasting menu. My husband had the beef striploin and I had the sable fish, they were both our favorite dishes. Definitely coming back!
Amazing food and service. Creative and excellent attention to details.
We had a delicious and enjoyable dinner at Mak N Ming to celebrate my husband's birthday. Each course was delightful, surprising, delectable and beautifully plated. Staff was highly knowledgeable and friendly and the space is gorgeous. Next time we're in Vancouver, we'll be back!
Aside from the sablefish and oyster dishes being overly salty, the food was amazing. The chef has come up with some very original combinations of fresh, seasonal ingredients, presented in a very artistic and appealing way. We look forward to trying this restaurant again when the next tasting menu becomes available.
Phenomenal flavors in an incredibly well balanced and well thought out meal one rarely sees in tasting menus. The service was warm inviting and informative and paced beautiful (kudos to the kitchen and staff for making that work! Some great affordable and eclectic wines on the list all chosen to compliment the food. This place is a gem and in a league of its own. Can’t wait to return!
Excellent food and service. The first dishes were both outstanding and amazing. A couple of the later dishes were a bit flat. Also, I think there were a couple too many dishes because I felt a little too full by the end. If the flat dishes were dropped, therefore, from the set menu the entire experience would be a transport to an ethereal culinary world. Thank you for the amazing experience.
Amazing experience at Mak n Ming! Food was paired perfectly with the wine pairings recommended. Would definitely recommend to friends and family :).
Very nice food and presentation. You pay the price for it, so not a value deal but worth it. I wish the waiter (or owner, not sure) was less full of him self. I think he got upset when I asked him about our meal as people who got there after us were being served before us. He was “doing his job” but with a noticeable attitude:( it spoiled our experience.
excellent food and service. For sure will come back
We went here for Dine Out and had a great meal. Really unique flavours, creative menus and beautiful presentation. Service was excellent. Will definitely be going back!
well cooked, subtle flavours, well presented. Attentive staff, pleasant ambience and low noise level
Appetizers were both very good. - chicken wings and tofu. Pork belly in the rice bowl was bland and dry.
We tried it for the first time during dine out. The presentation and atmosphere was quite nice, but we both found that the food was just okay. It wasn't very tasty. The three courses included wings, pork belly, and a dessert. With wings, I think you can go two directions - pub style delicious and sloppy, or impeccably prepared and finely seasoned. They were somewhere in between, not bad, but not memorable. I felt the same way about the pork belly. The desserts were delicious though, so it ended on a high note.
I started with the oyster and then the crispy chicken wings with yuzu dipping sauce. I shouldn't have eaten all of it [it was so good] because the pork belly rice dish is so big. And then to finish, a delicious dark chocolate cake with a surprise miso caramel sauce. It was a delicious meal in a cozy setting with great service. I would recommend Mak N Ming.
Over price. Small portion. Nothing original. Loud as hell.
Disappointed overall. Heard some hype but it wasnt worth it. The pork belly was not good, over cooked anand tough.
Incredible creative and personalized take on Asian fusion. The restaurant team's attention to detail stood out right from their pre-arrival outreach to discuss food allergies to the welcome at the restaurant and their curation of our dining experience. Its a super small and compact dining room which means you are not only rubbing elbows with your fellow diners but are also able to benefit from close visuals and smells of all the food that is showing up at tables near you. When everyone around is excited by their food choices this makes for a good thing!
Food delicious and well presented. Staff friendly, efficient and helpful.
We thought the room physically unappealing - appeared unfinished. Lighting strung vertically throughout opposite wall glaring and hard on the eyes. Room a little chilly. Seating on hard benches, no cushioning, just a thin folded blanket.
We had a great time, the food and service were very good.
We adore this place. On this occasion we had a few issues that gave us pause:
- we booked and it was not until we received confirmation that it was dine out. Our intent was not a five course meal mid week at 9 pm.
- we asked if we could add one to party which was not of issue but that there was no latitude in perhaps sharing four full meals with five total. Upon arrival we saw midweek second seating with no one in restaurant other than our table and one other table of 2. Shane greater latitude could not be accommodated due to fact it would not displace a paying customer.
- we entered to smell of natural gas, announced and were dismissed in an inelegant way. Not the greatest of receptions for what would lead to an over 700 meal.
We expect better for an exceptional restaurant we highly recommend.
Food is good, not outstanding. Service is up to standard.
Bad ventilation since the space is small and my cloths and hair smell like a Chinese Kitchen after.
Overall, good experience.
This was my second time dining at Mak n Ming and have left both times extremely happy. The food is amazing, the service is impeccable and the atmosphere is intimate. One of my favourite places to recommend to friends.
Wonderful, inventive but never over the top. Love the pace of the meal that allows you to appreciate the delicacy of each dish but also the conversation at the table. A favourite place!
Amazing experience throughout the night, definitely be back.
Decent ambiance, and service. However the food really did not deliver. Considering how much I spent on the final bill I was very very disappointed. There was even one dish on the tasting menu that we didn't eat. What a waste of money
The service was good. The place is cozy. All in our party enjoyed the food. The only challenge is to find parking. My suggestion is to arrive early, park the car on 4th Avenue.
The tasting menu was a miss. The description sounded amazing but the execution didn't deliver. Overall, lots of effort was put in the presentation and the food was innovative but at the expense of customers wallet.
