“Pizza, Pizza, Pizza.......... with good looking steak too”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Pizza, in a way that only the Dutch can do!!!!
Fantastic food, service and atmosphere including a Thai guitarist/singer who had a massive fixation with The Beatles. We had been looking for a decent pizza since leaving England (2 weeks in to our trip) and finally found it here - happy days!!!
Well run and reasonably priced with two separate kitchens, one for western food and one for local Thai dishes - according to the menu all the food was washed with bottled water before hand etc etc.
HIghly recommend stopping by for a bite to eat, in fact it was that good we went back the day after and had....... Pizza, but the table next to us had steak and that looked excellent.

“An OK restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We visited Mak Mak ~5 times during a 5 day stay. As with any restaurant, some dishes are good, some just mediocre. In general, Thai dishes were better. Fried beef with garlic and the shrimp dishes were nice, with the chicken with cashew nuts you really had to look hard for the chicken. I was looking forward to trying the western food options, since it has a TripAdvisor award and all that, but after I tried the burger (bad patty, uneatable burned pre-fried fries), I didn't risk it. The smoothies are quite good and recommended. In all, nothing particularly special, maybe it does stand out compared to the competition.

Dear Ire,

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant and thank you for visiting us every day during your holiday here on Koh Chang. What i do not understand is that with your 5 visits to our restaurant you never complaint or give any kind of feedback about the disappointments you write in your review???

With kind regards

Edwin Nieuwkerk

“Nice friendly restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

The opinion on the food in our family were different. I liked the Thai food my children did not . The dessert (hot chocolate cake) was not good and we didn't eat it. But the prices are reasonable and the owner is very friendly and comes to the tables it gives a good feeling.
