Really really good Indonesian food!

I was craving for Indonesian food and decided to go here to try their $10 lunch special. My Taiwanese and Japanese friends want to join me as well so I took them there. We ordered fried chicken and I almost worried that they can't handle the spice, but apparently there's nothing to worry about, the... read more

Having lived in, and travelled extensively throughout, Indonesia I have developed a real taste for Indonesian food. It's a real treat to find a place with all my favourites - rendang, bakso, cap cai... Even their tea is teh sorso, and Indonesian brand so it tastes just like I'm having a meal in my local warung. On too of the... More

various members of the family have dined here for around 8 years now and the food has always been consistant and outstanding. The setting is very authentic a small shop like area to dine with seating outside on the pavement in a quiet suburb of Brisbane. We had tofu pad thai, mixed noodles, rice, a veg coconut curry, prawn rendang,... More

Having a friend married to an Indonesian, we go there about 3-4 times a year. It's just a tiny place, so don't wonder if you end up on the footpath, but this is common on busy Hardgrave Road anyway. If you come with an open mind (me as a non-Indonesian) you will be surprised by the different flavors on offer.... More

I've been going to Makanan since it opened years ago and the food is still consistently amazing under their master chef Mie Mie. Great place with a family feel. Love it!

Sambal beef and chilli fried chicken were just fantastic. BYO meant we could have our fave beers with lunch. Very casual and friendly. Don't let looks deceive you - very very tasty Indonesian food.

I've been here a few times now as I've been looking to move into the area. I always feel very welcome and it's very quick service. I've tried most of the vegetarian dishes on the menu and have enjoyed them all - recommend the nasi goreng :-) large servings for a reasonable price. I'm looking forward to having Makanan as...
