I love the gado gado here! A night at Makanan means a vegetarian feast for me. It's inexpensive and very laid-back. The family who runs it are very sweet. A highlight of any Makanan dinner is getting to watch Mono perform love songs on his keyboard... go on a weekend and don't miss him!

This is where I always go whenever I'm craving for Indonesian food in Brisbane. The food is quite good. Although if you are familiar with the taste of the original food, you might not like it that much because some food taste quite different. But for Indonesian people, this is a good place if you are looking for a plate... More

Well I don't like writing negative review and the people who run this restaurant were so nice but here goes. It was a special night for my husband and I and we've been to Bali several time so I hunted on Trip Advisor for an Indonesian restaurant with fantastic reviews and Makanan came up trumps.I was expecting a simple café...

Presentation was excellent and the food was tasty. Music was a bit loud but the songs were well known and the voice was good. BYO meant hat we... More

My husband had been keen to try this restaurant after reading many positive views. Unfortunately our experience was not as wonderful as we'd hoped. Whilst the yellow fish curry was a standout, the other dishes were surprisingly flavourless and not overly fresh. Even the laksa was quite bland, despite the addition of various condiments. Over the course of the meal,... More

Craving Indonesian food a few weeks ago. The item I was after not on the menu and I asked if they ever made it. The owner whipped some up for me on the spot! Delicious! Will return. Also good choices for vegan in the family.

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 dish came with chili on... More
