Had a couple of breakfast here with my family while staying at the hotel and visiting JB.

The variety of food was good there was a lot to choose from (Malaysian, Indian, Japanese, ...) and staff at the restaurant was very polite.

I felt that the quality wasn't at the top notch but all in all very good place to have breakfast.

Remember to arrive in good time if breakfast is ending at 10:30 it means that they are shutting the place down at that time...

We would like to thank the personnel of Makan Kitchen @Double Tree by Hilton JB.
From the first point of contct, Nurul - Sales and especially on-site team of Roy & FnB team for making our event on 19th October, our Mother's 70th Birthday Party a success!

Appreciate the kind assistance rendered by Roy in the setup, accommodating our requests and making sure that our needs and requirements were met during the event. Indeed they were hospitable, very pleasant and always ever willing to assist throughout the event.

Our guest enjoyed the vast variety of food offered. The diverse platters consisting of Chinese, Indian and Malay food made it an even more interesting Malaysian blend.

The selection of seafood including a shell-out station was very much enjoyed by our guest.

The ambiance in the private dining room were cozy, comfortable. With proper ventilation. Ample space for guests to mingle and enjoy the evening.

We would recommend Makan Kitchen as a venue for small organized events and dining with its good service rendered and overall good quality food.

The experience is a positive one.
For us, it was a memorable event indeed.

Overall excellent.
