    This restaurant was a great find. The food is very good and so was the ambiance. Finally there is a restaurant in Melbourne that aren’t afraid of flavours and price!

    Amazing service and food. The satay chicken skewers were a standout. Would definitely go back to try the pork

    The food was tasty. Though the bowls were on the small side it was a good value express lunch in pleasant surroundings. A little difficult to find

    The staff was superb and the food was yummy. The chicken satay and crispy skin duck was the best. The ambience is of a top end restaurant. I will keep going back.

    Staff were friendly and welcoming, however we ordered the three way eggplant dish which was really hard and not cooked, satay didn't have the flavours and was quite bland covered in over powered lemongrass sauce. Fish dish was okay but will not be back there in a hurry.

    Lunch menu was extensive and reasonably priced. Food came out quickly and most were tasty. Service was attentive and friendly. Would come back again.

    I knew the restaurant through a friend of mine who works as a chef here. The pricing might be slightly on the pricier side but the amazing dishes are really worth it. I order a stewed lamb shank, mee goreng and black glutinous rice dessert, all of which were absolutely wonderful. The lamb shank was off the bones and the curry was a burst of flavours. The new goreng was simple and lovely. The glutinous rice was an unexpected delight with its layout and taste which was unexpectedly good

    Great atmosphere, service is best, the staff greet with smile and welcome us. Staff explained the menu really well. Tables is quiet small for 2 of us...a little bit bigger it will be perfect. Food is great, we order soda gembira for drink, it’s best combination, feel fresh to drink that. Especially during this hot weather. Try the Stuffed calamari, salmon filling, coriander, spicy bumbu rujak, grilled cos heart...love this one and also the chicken satay. For indonesian restaurant this is different from regular indonesian restaurant, new taste, definitely must a try.

    My partner and I loooved this place, generous serves, authentic tasting Balinese/ Indonesian food and the restaurant was well spaced and relatively quiet ( hate noisy restaurants) .We have recommended this place to many friends since our dinner there. We will be back.

    Went for my Daughter's birthday. Could not have gone to a better restaurant - the food, service, atmosphere and venue were first class. To find a place with such good food, but the whole family can enjoy and be made to feel so welcome, it's a credit to management and the staff. Chicken Ribs were a highlight, and when they say they are spicy, they are not kidding - Highly recommend!

    Love the overall experience at Makan. The food is full of flavours and love the modern twist to the traditional indonesian food. We love the Ubud duck, the skin is crispy while the meat is tender. We ordered sambal gila which was not on the menu, the sambal was absolutely amazing, right amount of spices and it is spicy enough for us! Highly recommend the cocktails too. We love Whiskey Sour and Indonesian Remedy!

    We went for an early dinner sitting and were not disappointed. We ordered the grilled corn, cabbage salad, grilled Jimbaran fish and kang kung veggies. Fave dish was the grilled corn. There was so much flavour packed into every cm of it! Only regret was not having enough room in our bellies to finish everything. Would definitely come back again!

    Authentic Indonesian flavours elevated with fine-dining techniques. The flavours honestly brought me back to eating dinner at my great grandmother's house.
