A creation of award-winning hospitality entrepreneur Yenn Wong, Mak Mak serves the 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. While a traditional venue found on the back streets of Bangkok would encompass a shop with the owner’s home attached, The Landmark destination features a storefront that bears resemblance to a traditional Thai grocery store with a 60-seat airy 'Thai residence-style' dining area hidden away behind it. With its notably convenient location, Mak Mak’s storefront offers seamless takeaway orders for those working nearby, while the restaurant welcomes guests to enjoy the cosy, homey environment and delicious Central Thai cuisine.
Heading up the culinary team at Mak Mak is Chef Mumu, who previously worked with Yenn at her restaurant, Kha, in Singapore. Mumu has been dishing up traditional Thai cuisine since 2008 in a variety of restaurants ranging from fast and refined to high-end fine dining concepts.
Mak Mak is the newest concept of Yenn Wong’s JIA Group which also includes Chachawan, Duddell's 22 Ships, Aberdeen Street Social, Ham & Sherry, 208 Duecento Otto, Meen & Rice and Fish School.
