A creation of award-winning hospitality entrepreneur Yenn Wong (JIA Group), Mak Mak serves classic flavours that fans of Thai cuisine know and love.
The design, reminiscent of 1960’s Bangkok, was created by NC Design & Architecture. A retro replica of a Thai shophouse, Mak Mak is comprised of two spaces with distinctly different purposes. Similar to a traditional Thai shop with owner’s home attached, The Landmark destination features a storefront that bears resemblance to a classic Thai grocery store with a 60-seat airy 'Thai residence-style' dining area hidden behind it. With its notably convenient location, Mak Mak’s storefront offers seamless takeaway orders, while the restaurant welcomes guests to enjoy the homey environment and delicious Central Thai cuisine.
We believe plant-rich diets are integral to good health and, in addition to the classics, we provide an extensive vegetarian (and sometimes vegan!) selection on our menu. These offerings come from a place of tradition and authenticity, with many of these dishes being ones the Mak Mak kitchen team grew up with. The quality of the ingredients added to transform your vegetables is important too. Clean and natural, our sauces contain no artificial additives meaning the vegetables and herbs, can take center stage.
JIA was created for the design-conscious traveler seeking high standards of personal attention without formality or intrusion. They are quietly theatrical, eclectic, warm spaces infused with a sense of fun – each with their own personality and style but always providing an experience which is uniquely JIA. The philosophy behind its restaurants is about culinary excellence in a unique and comfortable environment – taking the roots of traditional cuisines and delivering a modern interpretation through innovation and style, using only the freshest ingredients.Check out other JIA restaurants
