We eat a couple of time a month at this simple local eatery that provides decent tasty Chinese/Japanese/Far East food in good portions at a very good price. The staff are friendly but because Make has a very busy take away/delivery business service can be a little slow. But just be patient; for this value you have to make some... More

We had lunch at the Make restaurant. This restaurant is main road. The restaurant provides Chinese, Japanese and Asian cuisine. The sushi we had was fresh and appealing on the eye. This little restaurant is well worth a visit.

I had nice dumplings; a bit small but good. The main I had was shrimps with fried rice: delicious! Big portion and many shrimps which is rare nowadays. The ambiance in the restaurant could be better... a bit loud during rush hours. The light was a bit too bright.

As a vegetarian I usually struggle to find options on many take-out menus, so Make at least has a (limited) vegetarian menu. I called to order the braised tofu, but when my boyfriend arrived at Make to pick up the order, they told him that they had no tofu (could they not have said this over the phone?). He then... More

Very disappointed. We placed our takeaway order at 20.25, and were told to collect our order at 20.50. Upon arrival none of the staff let us know what was happening with our order - we finally managed to coax information out of the disinterested staff and were told the food would be ready shortly. At 21.15 we asked again where... More

Perhaps it is just the time of the year but this restaurant is simply not coping. Instead of employing extra staff, they seem to be struggling with one or two waiters and absolutely no management. Last night was chaotic. They should have closed their doors and said no more orders. Instead they packed in as many as they possibly could... More

This is a terrific spot for a quick sushi! Sea Point restaurants come and go with many struggling during winter hoping to make it to the season. I suppose the reason for this is that the Sea Pont main road is such an awful place. I really hope Make is here to stay. Their sushi and Chinese food is fabulous... More
