I stumbled upon Make after a walk in Sea Point. The restaurant is fairly nondescript and small but the good value sushi makes up for any lack of ambience. I had the new style sashimi salad which was very refreshing. The tempura prawn roll was also quite delicious. I cannot fault the food and would love to go back. The... More

In fairness visiting at 7.30 on a public holiday may not have been wise. A tiny place with people standing for their booked tables/ take away food. Very noisy & rather cramped so conversation limited. They have an open kitchen & bar. The two of us had 1 plate of Tempura prawns (2) with a spicy sauce both good. Mains... More

We eat a couple of time a month at this simple local eatery that provides decent tasty Chinese/Japanese/Far East food in good portions at a very good price. The staff are friendly but because Make has a very busy take away/delivery business service can be a little slow. But just be patient; for this value you have to make some... More

We had lunch at the Make restaurant. This restaurant is main road. The restaurant provides Chinese, Japanese and Asian cuisine. The sushi we had was fresh and appealing on the eye. This little restaurant is well worth a visit.

I had nice dumplings; a bit small but good. The main I had was shrimps with fried rice: delicious! Big portion and many shrimps which is rare nowadays. The ambiance in the restaurant could be better... a bit loud during rush hours. The light was a bit too bright.

As a vegetarian I usually struggle to find options on many take-out menus, so Make at least has a (limited) vegetarian menu. I called to order the braised tofu, but when my boyfriend arrived at Make to pick up the order, they told him that they had no tofu (could they not have said this over the phone?). He then... More

Very disappointed. We placed our takeaway order at 20.25, and were told to collect our order at 20.50. Upon arrival none of the staff let us know what was happening with our order - we finally managed to coax information out of the disinterested staff and were told the food would be ready shortly. At 21.15 we asked again where... More
