Food was buffet style and super average. From the reviews it sounds better if you can order ala carte. Ordered a beer at the bar and they claimed not to have change which seemed a bit shady. Nice view. Bring your bug repellent.

This was another work related dining experience. It has an enjoyable atmosphere and nice view. The food was buffet meat, potatoes and rice. Nothing spectacular but tasty. I am not sure if they have Al Cart menu but if they do it will be worth trying.

Chez Maky is a lovely spot to catch up with friends after a day in the office. The ambiance is warm and cozy. The food is very tasteful and the menu has a great variety of dishes. The host is very welcoming and makes sure your visit to this spot is pleasant.

We went here with a large group in July 2016 and received a very warm welcome. We attended on the day of the Wimbledon tennis final and the Euro 2016 final and were able to watch both on the large projector screen. We were brought drinks quickly and had a nice soup starter before the buffet was served, understandably, in... More

I sited Chez Maky in a large group. We booked ahead & rather than ordering from the menu a buffet was provided. This restaurant had beautiful views over Blantyre. Would recommend.

Maky is an extremely welcoming host and the views are stunning. We love to watch the sun set from the terrace. Lovely pool too. I like the Mongolian Chicken. Service is friendly and leisurely.
