    The staff at Makan are terrific. One of our party was gluten-free due to coeliac and this was taken very seriously including a note to the kitchen even though the dish ordered was already marked as gluten free. Not often that you feel you are really taken care of particularly with the large number of those claiming gluten free on a whim and a trend. Lunch always great with the lunch specials that are just the right portion with lots of yummy extras to add for a longer lunch.

    Hard to find. Wine list is limited and expensive. We could not get a booking until 8:15 and the kitchen closed before we'd finished.

    Makan is our favorite restaurant and is so consistent in quality and flavour of their food. It’s a beautiful space to enjoy either an intimate or group dining experience. The food is so authentic and delicious, and this is why we keep coming back and bring our friends too!

    The food was more to the sweet sides. We had nasi goreng, lawar, and sambal terasi which were too sweet for our liking. Urutan was the best we had.

    I an anaphylactic to peanuts and asked the staff several times about dishes that have peanuts in it but neither of our waitstaff seemed to understand what I was saying. Our drinks staff were wonderful and the quality of the food was very good for the other 5 people I dined with but was a little frustrated with the lack of support for my allergy

    I brought in our dear friends in for dinner and requested that it was a special occasion. But we were given a brand new waiter who did not know the product and many food items we wanted to order and they had run out. So overall I am not sure if we had a good experience or not. Food quality is good but not sure about the service and attention to detail when people put in special occasion etc. Why bother asking then.

    A lovely stand alone restaurant tucked inside a commercial building, entrance through a back alley, makes it feel like you've found a hidden gem. Lovely cocktails complimented great citrusy themes. 👍: Soft shell crab bun, salads, grilled pork belly, cocktails, service (the wait staff were top notch and considered my low spice preference amazingly), vibe (medium lighting, soft decor, noise level: medium), bathrooms (just outside the restaurant, in the building) 💅: Grilled Beef Rib (at $42, it was overly chewy and unnecessarily very sweet +++. It was the only disappointing thing that lost a 5 star rating)

    Food has been consistently good. Portions are good for sharing if you order enough dishes; could be a tad larger. About $40-$60 per head for food and drink. Place can get noisy, but it feels more energetic than a nuisance.

    The food was amazing, the service staff were great in providing recommendations which or party of 7 welcomed and enjoyed. The only small thing is a 2 hour limit, and extra 30 minutes would have allowed time for dessert. Highly recommended.
