The base genep broth that came with the pork was the highlight of my dinner. I’m Balinese and that broth just hit all the right notes! Urap was good too, I wish there is more Indonesian restaurant like this in other cities so I can get this “just like home taste” more often. Thanks Makan! I’ll definitely back next time I’m in Melbourne.

Tried the feed me option and enjoyed all the dishes served - lamb satay tasted lovely but the meat was a bit tough. Having said that I would like to add that the rest of the meal was exceptional - particularly the pork ribs. Plan to go back to try some of their other dishes and would recommend this restaurant to others.

The food is amazing, the service is so good...friendly and professional. The foods remind me so much of my mum’s cook. And always bring so much memories about her. Best Indonesian dishes, and the presentation is soooo gooood💕

Food was terrific especially the spicy wings and the rendang! The waitress was helpful to solve our table issue. One of the waitresses (not our table waitress) was a little rude when we were paying but that's okay cause the food was good enough for us to disregard that. Overall a terrific evening

All the food was delicious at Makan I particularly loved the pork ribs. They were so tender and fell off the bone. I would recommend this to everyone. The rendang was different to all the ones I’ve tried but this beef brisket version was definitely the best rendang! Thank you makan. The service was faultless as well!

Would have liked a cendol (one of the desserts we had) with shaved ice - though I understand this was a re-imagining of the dish! Also refilling of water was initially slow but improved after we flagged down a staff member. Otherwise loved the other bits of the meal including the generous serve sizes! Came with an Indonesian friend who commented it was one of the best Indo places in Melbourne!

Excellent service, great layout and atmosphere. The feed me menu was excellent. The only criticism I would have is that there were very similar flavours through all the cuisines, which did become noticeable by the time we got to the mains. But in saying that, those flavours were delicious so we are really nit-picking to provide feedback. Will definitely be back - 4.5 / 5.0 stars
