    We had dinner at Makan in February 2024 while visiting from Canada and loved everything. After booking our table, we read more about Tasia & Gracia's story and inspiration behind the restaurant. We immediately felt welcome and taken care of our meal. We had Bintang, Chicken skewers, Wagyu rendang and more, everything brilliantly balanced. Truly a memorable meal for all the right reasons.

    Celebrated my birthday here with my husband. We thoroughly enjoyed the Chef's Reccomendation menu, the dishes all came out in a very timely manner and staff was very attentative with clearing plates, water and overall service. Would highly recommend the wagu beef brisket rendang, chicken wings, kingfish, pork sliders and prawns, all dishes had a very good level of heat and the sambal was next level delicious ! Definitely worth a try if you want authentic Indonesian cuisine.
