    The staff were absolutely amazing, so attentive and knowledgeable about the foods, advised us which sambal was hot so we knew only to have a little. Blows your socks off. The food was absolutely stunning and I would recommend going here for a Balinese experience. It was our honeymoon treat and what a great time we had. Can’t wait to come back again. The kingfish and the chicken ribs were outstanding, but everything was so good it’s hard to pick a favourite.

    The staff at Makan are terrific. One of our party was gluten-free due to coeliac and this was taken very seriously including a note to the kitchen even though the dish ordered was already marked as gluten free. Not often that you feel you are really taken care of particularly with the large number of those claiming gluten free on a whim and a trend. Lunch always great with the lunch specials that are just the right portion with lots of yummy extras to add for a longer lunch.
