Come to Makan Makan for delicious cuisines and good moments, and enjoy true Malaysian and Nanyang taste.
Makan Makan, located on Sukhumvit Soi 16, has a simple black and white appearance, and the outdoor green plants are perfectly established, so that black and white does not look dull, but makes people feel quiet and cozy. There is a small dining area outdoors, where you can sit and enjoy the evening breeze of Bangkok, enjoying Malaysian cuisine to your heart’s content. Walking into the room, it is completely different from the black and white outside, with log and white decorations, reflecting a warm and comfortable atmosphere. There is a long table on the second floor, which is very suitable for family dinners or gatherings of friends. On the wall are many photos of New Zealand, photographed by the owners daughter, as well as a large mirror that makes the space appear larger.
Makan Makan means “Let’s go eat” in Malay, the language of the Malay Archipelago, and is the name of a trendy, upscale Eurasian eatery. The menu is based on the rich culinary legacy of Eastern cuisine with Western influences left behind by the Portuguese traders who traded from Phuket to Indonesia in the 16th century. The restaurant serves brunch and lunch at reasonable prices throughout the day, and transforms into a warm and inviting bar and restaurant in the evening. There’s a good reason why Asians adore the food of Penang: it’s a fusion of the flavors and techniques that draws from many different cuisines, including those of India, Thailand, China, Malaysia, and others.
