Tucked away among the embrace of the Marrakesh, one of the four unique precincts in Sunway Pyramid, you will discover authentic Kelantanese cuisines cradled for your delightful gastronomic satisfaction. As you step into the restaurant, you can already see a hint of some Kelantanese touch on its walls and floors – the Kelantanese wau, some photographs which carry the reminisces of Kelantan and furnitures that reflect the Malay culture.
As you settle yourself for food, ready to order, do remember this – the food can get pretty spicy at Maké so be mentally prepared for it. We recommend that you arm yourself with Teh Tarik (with or without ice, your choice) or Sirap Bandung Selasih to combat its spiciness.
