About the restaurant

Makan is a hide-away from Melbourne’s city centre. We are strong believers that food is made for sharing with those you love. From the well-thought-out menu, flavours, decor and extensive drinks list, all our menu is designed to be enjoyed amongst the table – whether this be date night, or drinks and dinner with your friends – we can tailor the menu to suit you.

Our menu is built to share – with punchy flavours, sophisticated plating, and traditional delights, there really is something for everyone. Of course, a cocktail or a glass of wine is always a great companion – so all you need to do is sit back and relax, and we’ll sort out the rest.

Makan celebrates what it means to cook from the heart and sharing it with those you love.

About tasia and gracia

Tasia & Gracia started their cooking career after winning the television competition, My Kitchen Rules, in 2016. After many private dining and public events cooking around Australia, they opened up their debut restaurant, Makan, in 2018.

Born in Indonesia and raised in India and Australia, the sisters began cooking at a young age after a lifetime of meals with their family, their mother being a big inspiration for their love of food. As most cooks, this love grew and became a hobby for the sisters, showcasing their talents across Melbourne before deciding to enter the cooking-competition, My Kitchen Rules. After years of recipe developments, tastings and trial and error, Makan was born in the heart of Melbourne’s city– established on their family recipes, as well the desire to showcase delicious Indonesian flavours: the sisters took this in their stride, creating their own oasis for people to come and enjoy.

"“We learnt a lot about cooking and flavours from our Oma and Mum. In particular, we love the flavours of our Beef Rendang – it is a recipe that is passed on from them, and something that is really close to our hearts.

We are so lucky to be able to share our restaurant with you, as it is like a home away from home.”
