We ate here our first night on Koh Chang, as it was across the road from our hotel. My partner had pad thai, I had beef with chilli. Both dishes were ok.

After all the good comments about this place, we decided to try it tonight, probably the worst food so far in the island. The pad Thai was without any taste (considering I'm a pad Thai lover). The spring rolls were not fresh at all and the chicken with cash-nut tested more like a European casserole chicken. Really disappointed....

Dear Sir, Yesterday you ate in our restaurant. When i asked you if everything was ok, you responded that everything was fine. 10 minutes later you ordered me to your table and complained that there was not enough chicken in the chicken with cashew nut dish. Strange, since we always use a fixend amount of meat. So if you already... More

We had very tasteful Thai dishes with delicious fruit shakes. Ran into this restaurant in Kai Bae by coincidence. The restaurant has two separate kitchens. One for Thai and one for European food. The place is family run with attention for details in setting and service. A must visit when you are on Koh Chang!

It was late, about 10.00 p.m., and Mak Mak was one of the very few restaurants still opened. So my boyfriend and I stopped here to have our late dinner. I had a shrimps pad Thai, pretty good, and a regular chicken breast with veggies and fries. Nice service although it was late . Total amount with one large Chang,... More

Having eaten here many times, it's about time I reviewed it! Friendly staff - non intrusive and welcoming. Lovely ambiance and lighting. Easily accessible from the main street, yet somehow feels distant from the bustle and noise of the road. Steak is cooked to perfection - exactly as ordered - medium rare, beers are cold and service is excellent, prompt... More

Yummmmmmmmm. This place is a foodie's dream. Across the board from pizzas, steaks, pastas and of course the Thai food, all of it was well prepared and presented. It taste brilliant too!

This was an ok place to eat, mostly focused on typical Thai food, but not limited to it. Service could have been faster, but we had a good meal anyway. As there are so many restaurants around we never came back to it, since there was nothing spectacular about it.
