Regular at Maks Place!

Have been going to Maks Place every Friday night ever since i was 5 ( im 17 now). I've never get bored of going to Maks Place. The food is cheap, tasty and the portion is huge. There's a variety of food to choose from. 

The butter prawn/squid is a must try! The seafood mee is also one of the best to me.

The owners are also very sociable and humble. He will always try to socialise with his customers and always make jokes. I can't wait to go to Maks Place again this friday!

Delicious food

The food here is very delicious, didn't took me long to like this shop. They have a good range of dishes that taste good. I personally loved their buttered squid. The owners are also very warm, allowing me to have a good time enojying my meal.

The greatest!

First time as a guest, I'm typing this out as I'm having my super heavy supper here at Mak's Place. We got here at 1245am, just in time for last orders. We had Crispy Baby Squid, Butter Prawn, Sweet & Sour Seabass and Salted Egg Crab (THE BEST! MUST TRY!) We ordered all in small sizes but the quantity per-dish is more than enough for 2 pax = value for money. They were already closing when our food was served. The boss came up to us personally and said, "Please take your time to enjoy your meal, don't let them (the staff who are doing closing) intimedate you..." looking at my other half he said, "I've been observing her and I can see that she's having a hard time swallowing her rice..." as I was already choking on my rice watching them clearing up tables & chairs (thinking they're all tired and that we're keeping them from going home to have their rests; because I come from the same industry and I know how it feels). I just laughed while still trying to swallow my rice. He said again, "Please, enjoy your meal" We thanked him for being very understanding. After slowly finishing our meal, we got them to pack our Baby Squid & Butter Squid as it was too much for us to finish. The lady boss had a chat with us awhile after our meal and before they head off, they again told us to take our time to finish our drinks. They left, we bid farewell. We spent a total of $70. With the awesome meal that we had, it was very much worth every single cent. We will definitely be back. Thank you dear bosses, for the kind & warm hospitality.

Just nice for a family dinner/get-together

It's a corner coffeeshop/hawker/restaurant and serves a menu of halal Chinese style as well as Western fare. Most of their beef dishes are delicious being tender but not too soft.

It's ala carte dishes are decent.

Its service is just so so. The owners (Pris and Mak) are friendly and often make small talk with guests.

Been a regular there since they opened about 8 years ago.

Since then they have included an air conditioned outlet next door for those who prefer a cooler sitting.

My personal favorite ala carte is the Beef Hunan Noodles or the Beef Fried Rice.

They also do Cze Char. My favourite dish is the Hotplate Thai Beef. Served on a hotplate with a spicy and thick(creamy) tom-yum sauce with pieces of delectable beef and slices of caramelized onion.

Highly recommended for the food though service tends to lack at times especially during the dinner period even when there is little to no crowd.
