I took a pizza and a pad thai, to try the different tastes. The pizza was really good, i was really surpised. The pad thai was nice, even if it was not the best one i had on the island.

Went here for dinner as walking distance from hotel. Looks clean and well presented from the road and is popular with western tourists. Food is OK but nothing special, Thai food tempered for the western palate. The restaurant is clean and a good place to explore Thai cuisine but not authentic and dishes are more expensive than many of the... More

Went here for launch, both the price and the service were very good. The menu has a lot of choices, we had 2 Thai dishes with rice which were very good.

We returned this summer to Ko Chang and based on the nice experience from last year, we went back to Mak Mak. Delicious curry and fair prices. Yes, there are cheaper places, but the food safety still seems to be a big aspect here and we digested our food well. Dinner for 2 people clocked in at 11USD, no complaints... More

Since the owner is Dutch by origin, he knows a lot... More

Stayed at the AWA Resort opposite and wanted something different for dinner. I was in the mood for pizza and after reading TA reviews decided to try Mak Mak. Big mistake!! This was probably the worst pizza I've ever had in my life (and I've had a lot). I'm not sure if it was because I ordered it to go... More

Dear Teddy, I March you took a pizza from our restaurant and now you write a review? It must have been terrible if it took you 3 MONTHS to take your mobile to write this review. I did not want to wait that long for my response. What can say? Thanks for the review! 😉 Edwin More

Looking at the reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to check the restaurant and at first we were quiet skeptical as the place was empty, granted it was off season. The food was absolutely amazing and we had dinner twice. Steak with pepper sauce and Fillet Mignon with Pepper Sauce both were simply outstanding, run by an expat, he always... More

Nice clean restaurant with good service. Had a green curry with chicken which was one of the best so far this trip. Also tried a pasta dish but that was average at best.
