I was truly impressed by this restaurant. Enjoyed the breakfast particularly. The scrambled eggs were done in the way I like best and the Streaky Beef was yummy. Oh, and the Teh Tarik was delish! The one that elevated our experience was Mr Zabli. That...smile ... he always attended to us cheerfully and was preemptive of our needs. He should be given a medal!

I celebrated my birthday yesterday at Makan Kitchen with family and friends yesterday evening 2 August 2019. Party of 8. Grace of Makan Kitchen organised a wonderful table with a great view for me and a free birthday cake and gave me a good discount....The evening International Buffet was delicious with plenty of variety including my favourites: Oysters, grilled King prawns & quail,and sushi.Grace told the chef that I liked butter cake and icing so he make a beautiful and delicious cake for me. The service from the staff was wonderful and the restaurant had a nice ambience. Thank you Grace, the chef and all the staff for your wonderful service. My guests and I really enjoyed ourselves at your restaurant. Most had not been to this restaurant before and they were very impressed with the restaurant and the food. If anyone is celebrating their birthdays, ask for Grace to help organise things for you.More
