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!

Great value quality Indonesian food with a twist. Decor was beautiful and a nice space to be in. Service was friendly and attentive.

Tucked away in a quiet laneway. A bit hard to find. Service was acceptable. Food was tasty but some dishes were overpowering with too many strong flavours. Would give it another try one day.

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

Service and atmosphere was outstanding and menu is exceptional so much so I had a lot of trouble deciding. We ended up ordering 2 starters 2 mains with a rice and a salad and 2 desserts. It was too much! We wanted to try a few things however we would have been better off with possibly 3 starters and 1 main. Any that was our fault. Everything was pleasant soft shell crab bao was the best. Ribs were a little dry and desserts looked great but didnt really hit the mark. Overall I wish I had of tried other things on the menu...ah well!
