We came for a birthday celebration for our daughter. Food great, service attentive but not obtrusive. Would really recomend this restaurant to all ages.

Went for Dim Sum lunch with a voucher. Some of the dishes we had were delicious - like calamari or dumplings, other just OK. We had scallops - usual price around 7 euro I think - instead of 3 scallops, as described in the menu - we got 2, and they were really small ones, fried together with the coral (the orange bit). Wouldn't be too happy with that if we were paying the full price for this dish! Anyway, generally we both thought that food was rather on the tasty side. The service, however... Several young lads, not knowing much of the dishes. They brought us a dish we didn't order, but luckily took it away from us before we tried it, then instead of pork dumplings we got shrimp dumplings - which we noticed while we were half way through the portion so we did not even mention them their mistake. Had to ask two times to get more water. The worst thing was that they were incredibly slow! It took around 45 minutes from entering the restaurant to getting the first dish - and there was only six tables occupied, including ours. Even getting tea and coffee at the end of the meal was another several minutes wait, while staff was wandering around the place in the clueless way. They took the plates away before serving tea and coffee but left dirty napkins in the middle of the table. They did not smile once, did not ask if we needed something else, although have to admit that they did ask if everything was OK at the end of our meal. Considering the number of waiters per customer at the time we were there the service was surprisingly bad and unwelcoming... More training needed!

Had wanted to try Mak after hearing a lot of good things about it and managed to get one of the Grab One vouchers for a 5-piece dim sum lunch with tea and coffoe, for two people, for €20. The staff were fantastic and talked us through the various types of dim sum available. The stand out dishes were the spicy chicken potstickers and the extra side of broccoli with ginger and chilli. We'll definitely be going back again soon!

Pretty good. Not a 100% decided on this one but am going to go again. We had nice and super crispy calamari (with chillies! Thank god not typical, afraid of spice, Dublin restaurant), a really delicious prawn salad (prawn on lettuce), a couple of different dumplings - would like a black vinegar dipping sauce if possible please! and a nice duck broth - we ordered one dish too many and were pretty stuffed but happy overall. I would recommend sharing all the dishes and going in a group of four to try a few different things. My wife felt that there was a bit of residual stinkyness from the deep frier generally in the restaurant but I didn't find this to be much of an issue, maybe don't go in your finery to be on the safe side.

I was expecting great things from Mak after all the good reviews, but unfortunately it wasn't to be. It started off well with great service from a nice waitress. We decided to go for the Dim Sum and our first arrivals of salt and pepper calamari and the duck pancakes, were both delicious. Unfortunately it was all downhill from there. The scallops were over cooked and served in a soy sauce-type sauce, which completely overpowered the flavour of the scallops. The mussels were also overcooked and chewy. The pork dumplings were glutinous and uninteresting, but to be honest, I've found pork dumplings to be like this everywhere. The Singapore noodles were fine, but nothing to write home about and the ginger and chilli broccolli, although perfectly cooked, hadn't even the slightest whiff of ginger from it. We decided not to go for dessert as we couldn't handle another disappointment and the dessert menu was pretty limited anyway. My husband finished with an espresso, which came with no crema on top and he said wasn't very good. All told, including a bottle of Portuguese wine, the bill came to €71. I left wishing I'd bought a couple of nice steaks and cooked them at home and saved my money. A meal out is a rare event for us these days and I hate feeling like my money would have been better spent elsewhere! We won't return.

I have been here twice, once with girlfriends and then with a guy friend, both times the food was sumptuous.. I just can't fault it. It's worth noting though that this is not your traditional chinese restaurant the food does not come smoothered in sauce and MSG the dishes are so tasty and full of flavour without the additives. Having recently visited Hong Kong I was pleased that Mak D6 opened... It certainly has filled a gap in the Asian market in Dublin. You have to try the wasabi & cucumber cocktail. All the dim sum I have tried are to die for , the broccoli side dish is just delicious and the beef dish with chilli is like nothing I have tasted. I can't recommend it highly enough. Try it out !

went to Mak after months of actually wanting to get to it. heard mixed reviews from people. i wasnt impressed by the atmosphere in it but the service was great. our table was next to the bar/service area which i didnt like as there a funny smell coming from there, i would describe it as raw chicken stinky smell, but i guess it faded into the background after a while. we had a very nice crew looking after us. the cocktails are definitely worth trying, they are all so delicious. the food was very nice except for the chicken feet ( but thats personal). the dim sums were delicious. would go back for the food and drink.

Went for a meal at mak using a menupages voucher on Sunday evening. The restaurant was busy and is pleasnatly laid out. We did get a table by the door which was drafty for me which was a bit annoying at first. Staff were very pleasant though very busy so service was a bit slow. The food was worth the wait however , the dim sum was really nice - we had crab stuffed peppers and ribs and for mains we had beef in black bean sauce and beef in ginger and scallion sauce. All were really nice and teh special fried rice and singapore noodles were also excellent.The wine although limited in choice by the glass was also nice.
