We offer two, seasonally conscious, set menu selections nightly – our full Chef’s menu of 6 courses along with a shorter 3-course Demi menu. Additionally, vegetarian set menus are available upon request with advance notice. Dishes are inspired by the changing variety of available produce and protein throughout the year.
Executive Chef Makoto "Mak" Ono and Executive Pastry Chef Amanda "Ming" Cheng create progressive French/Japanese inspired cuisine with innovative breads and desserts.
Courses that have been featured in our set menus have included Dungeness crab noodle soup, kale “Pocky”, crusted nori bun, mirugai with celery root and parsley, duck breast with bitter greens and pear, farro ochazuke, and squash Mont Blanc.
A carefully chosen beverage and wine selection by our head sommelier Roger Maniwa is designed to complement our unique menus; guided wine pairings for both the Chef’s and the Demi menu are also available upon request.

The set menu was carefully crafted and was paired with a beautiful Spanish red. Dishes were perfectly spaced and we didn't feel rushed at all. Staff was very attentive and were able to answer our questions about the dishes.

A true gem in this city.

The service and the food were great. You can only choose from 2 set menus. We had the smaller menu with pork belly which was great if you like fatty pork belly (if not, go with the other option). They are strict about all members of the table being there before they’ll start bringing the food out. If a person is late or one has to leave early, this might not be the right place to meet.
Also, I noticed our clothes smelled like a deep fryer after we left the place.
This place is great for foodies who like to try something different and tasty that involves many many ingredients in a small plate.

This tiny restaurant was freezing cold. All the staff were wearing sweaters. After the first course, I had to put my jacket back on, but my legs were still cold. The wall lighting is so bright it renders the table tea lights irrelevant. Offered a choice of two tasting menus - a short and a long - I chose the short expressly because I wanted to minimize how long I spent here. On a positive note, the temperature and lighting can be fixed, and the food and service are already excellent.

My experience at Mak N Ming
Unforgettable
It was the kind of dining experience when you want to get to learn and truly appreciate cuisine,
The talent out of that kitchen. excellent
The flavours to say on point wouldn’t give enough credit
The spirt tasting with the chefs tasting was my choice and I will return for seconds.

The restaurant is small, about 30 seats, all of which were filled when we went, and to no surprise, after having experienced the Chef’s tasting menu. All of the dishes were thoughtfully put together, the size of each course was perfect, and the beverage pairing added to the overall experience. Flawless service-this restaurant is run with passion and it was definitely a joy to eat here :)

Between the two of us we ordered both the Chef's and the Demi menus so that we could try every dish. Both menus had highlights that we were glad not to miss. I recommend the same strategy to others!

Loved the food and the wait staff was super attentive. We were murmuring how we wished one of the dishes had a little bit of a kick since it had very rich flavours but almost so rich it was almost a little bland. They appeared with a bit of siraicha sauce which they certainly did not have to do and we were not expecting it.

The chefs are doing a fantastic job with the place and definitely a place to check out. They only have a set menu - a standard three course and then a chef’s menu with 6 courses. I definitely recommend taking the chef’s menu for a spin! And if you are a drinker, order the pairings - it too comes as a set and nicely compliments the meal.
