Mak Chin's has changed since I first visited nearly two years ago. It use to be order at the counter, sit down restaurant, but now it is a regular seated and be waited on restaurant. The prices are a little steep, but food is delish! I love the bacon wrapped spring rolls, and the citrus glazed shrimp is to die for! small portion, but excellent and tasty. would highly recommend, nice ambiance......

We stopped in the chic bar/lounge area for Happy Hour there last week, and I was SO impressed! The HH menu is an assortment gourmet appetizers - the ribs were delicious ($2.95!), the calamari, and the tuna tartar. But the best part was the bartender, Nathan, and his AMAZING selection of creative and DELICIOUS martinis! I am in love with the green tea liqueur one (forgot what else he uses), but all of the ones I tasted were so original and SO YUMMY! And our food came out almost immediately. I think I might go there tonight, my mouth is watering!

Pros: Atmosphere, Martinis, Happy Hour Prices, Service, Yummy food

Cons: The awesome martinis are NOT on the Happy Hour menu, so don't get carried away!

Went in for lunch at 12:00, ordered one of the bento combinations and 3 dumplings. The restaurant was less than half full, but the kitchen was in complete disarray, scrambling and sniping. Dumplings came out in 20 minutes, the main course much MUCH later - several other customers had arrived, ordered and received. Got the check at 1:15.

Vegetable dumplings were ghastly, not even pinched together. Main courses were adequate; Think Chinese soft taco. Overall food quality has dropped dramatically since my last visit several months ago, and they've removed the condiment bar.

But most importantly, any restaurant that can't turn around a lunch menu in less than an hour, let alone when one-third occupied, is in serious trouble. Needs a serious dose of Gordon Ramsay foot-in-the-arse.

Pros: Decent value lunch; nice ambience

Cons: Appalling lunch service; "dumplings" don't deserve the name

Nice simple menu. Great tasting food with different degrees of spice and aroma. We ate in the restaurant area where service was average.

Good price/quality ratio.

Will go again.

I have been to Mak Chins several times. It is true that the service is usually lacking and sometimes terrible. I have met friends there for happy hour and appetizers and the food was great. It is perfect on a nice night for sitting on the patio and ordering a few appetizers and splitting one or two entrees with friends. Their cocktails are inventive and refreshing- even if they are a little pricey (sometimes around $8). I do really like the place but as a service industry person for 12+ years the service delays can be very frustrating. Note to management: when a waiter is assigned a section they should plan on being attentive to each of their tables. Showing up once twenty minutes after food is served is never sufficient.

I'm not one who typically reads the negative reviews for restaurants and assumes they are correct. Things happen, some people have very unreasonable expectations, others are just having a bad day and are impossible to please. It is for that reason why I overlooked the two negative reviews for Mak Chins, the other 14 people couldn't all be wrong. However, I'm actually pretty disappointed with the evening. I had never tried Mak Chins, and invited 5 other friends to join me for dinner after work (about 8pm), I never imagined such a disappointing evening would ensue. Our waiter was no where to be found, and consequently a very nice girl took our groups appetizer order, saying the waiter would be by shortly to take our drink order. It wasn't until after the appetizers had been served were we able to get a member of the staff to pull him away from the larger table he was catering to and attend to our needs as well. A multi-tasker he was not. And at that, he proceeded to say he wanted to finish with the other table before he even greeted us. Not a stellar first meeting with him, and things only got worse. We watched him have a conversation on the phone for a bit, all the while continuing to sip our water. All said and done, the food was mediocre at best, the service of the waiter left much to be desired (the busboy, on the other hand, was on his game), and to top it all off, the waiter charged us for the wrong bottle of wine. But what is most frustrating about that is not that it was human error, for when we brought it to his attention, he tried to tell us he gave us the more expensive bottle and it was our error for not clarifying what we wanted, while the (less expensive, long empty) bottle was still sitting in the middle of the table. Only when we pointed this out did he in fact acknowledge that we were charged for the wrong bottle, but served what we ordered. Will I go back? Absolutely not. It wasn't horrible, but definately not worth the time/money.

Are you kidding me with the reviews of this place? We started with an order of Chicken Sate which was all dark meat chicken. Who the heck serves dark meat chicken except the cheap places and this place fits that bill. I then ordered a chicken w/ a dry rub served over sticky rice and my partner ordered another chicken dish (which was so so). Mine came in a clay container with a lid that was so hot that I could barely touch it. Uhmmm, couldn't the runner have taken it off? When I finally got the lid off, it was sitting in about 2 inches of GREASE and guess what...MORE DARK MEAT. The runner, who spoke very little English, had no idea what we were saying when we asked if we were supposed to have rice.

Finally our waiter came by and I told him I could not eat the food that had been served to me and he offered something else which ended up being really good. And he brought us both rice.

The unfortunate part is that the Asian man, who appears to be the owner, just stared at us the entire time we ate. Thanks for checking up on us to see if the rest of our meal was good.....NOT! It was so comfortable to eat our meal while the Owner and entire kitchen and wait staff stared at us.

We will never go to this place again. Auntie Changs, Pei Wei and Kam's will win this place over ANY day of the week. Later Mak!!!!

I so look forward to going to Mak Chin's at least once a week. I find it to be a wonderful place to unwind, have a cocktail, relax, and have some quality appetizers and/or entrees. I enjoy dumplings and while Mak Chin's are very different than what I am used to they are wonderful, good, light yet large. The accompanying sauces / relishes are delicious as well. The mussles are delicious as well as the crab puffs, fried rice, any chicken dish. Everything is delicious. The only con would be sometimes the bartender can be in the weeds and it might take longer than you would like for a drink. The relaxing atmoshpere though should keep you comfortable as you wait your turn.

It used to be "order at the counter", but recently a consultant suggested they revamp the entire menu. Now Mak Chin's is a sit down experience with more daring fusion food. Be careful of the crab and shrimp dishes, some come with shells still on so ask before you order if that bothers you. Portions are sensible, but smaller than what they used to be. Prices have gone up slightly, but it still is considered a casual restaurant in that range. Best time to stop by is during their "Happy Hour" when they put many menu items on special right after work.

I'm not completely sold on the new menu, but it does offer a more serious experience. Before Mak Chin's served solid but simple dishes, and now they use a lot of spice and unusual blendings of many Oriental disciplines. It leans heavily towards Thai, but traces of Japanese and Chinese are there. Look around and you'll find enough to please any palate.

This is still a great neighborhood restaurant, and it is less crowded than the ones around it. There is a nice ambiance and some good value to be had. Try the China Silk house wines - they are affordable and quite good.

Pros: Nice amibience, tables are far enough apart, solid and unique food, good service

Cons: Some will find the food overly complicated and fussy served in "healthy" portions

I used to really enjoy Mak Chin's quick, inexpensive lunches. I went today, and the menu is completely different--no lunch menu, no more desserts. What used to cost about $7.00 for an entree, vegetable, soup, and eggroll is now at least $9 for a small plate with no sides. Before, you would order at the counter for lunch and your food would be at the table almost as soon as you sat down. The restaurant was very understaffed today, with only one server and two cooks for the entire lunch area. Very slow service, bad dumplings, and overpriced food.

The discription of food did not match it's entree. We ordered a chicken curry that was extremly spicy and was not labeled as such. It was so spicy that it was not even enjoyable. I am usually a big fan of curry but this curry had a piculiar taste. The waiter asked if I wanted to order something else. He waited as I looked at menu and I asked if he could give me a minute. He gave me a dirty look and walked away. We also ordered the soft shell crab. It was breaded and deep fried with the shell still on it. It was for my daughter and she usually loves crab, but she really didn't enjoy it. Is she really going to eat the whole shell off the crab. We asked the waiter a question about it and again he was rude. The service and attitude was not exceptable. I've eaten better food at Pei Wei!

Eating on a budget? Come here! The food is good for the price and drinks pretty good also. Great lounge atmosphere, with slightly better than typical bar food. Really good for lunch or a weeknight dinner. Bring friends, get loud, have fun.

Great place to try out! I agree with many in the terms of price to quality ratio as far as the food is concerned, but it certainly isn't bad. The best part about this place is their happy hour drinks that I can go for anytime...only $4 bucks for a yummy Mai Tai blend and lots of others! If you come in during the evenings, its definitely going to be bustling, but what I like to do is go with a few friends after work, etc in the later afternoon say 5p/6pish and you get to have a very intimate yet super cozy lounge area pretty much to yourselves! If you're the type that likes to spend time out with your buddies and not have to worry about pushing through people or yelling over each other to have a good chat, then go a bit earlier and really enjoy yourselves. Try their menu by sharing plates before you go out and just order one for each person. Hope that helps!

Pros: Awesome awesome happy hour drinks! great hangout lounge, gotta bring your friends~!

Cons: food quality/expectations are on and off, overall decent

Nice try but still food court cuisine. I am not hot on getting my own drink, set ups, and condiments. Bet the bar is rockin after happy hour and food always tastes better with a cocktail anyway.

I love this place! Laidback, yet hip, delicious Asian-fusion with a twist. The portions are huge, the food is super yummy, and the service is quick and friendly. This place has a great atmosphere and lots of space for quality lounging. I can't wait to try it for brunch!!!!

Looking to skip the boring and predicatable Sunday brunch offered everwhere in Houston? Check out Mak's on Sunday, with tasty and cheap, yet super potent Belinnis and a DJ spinning vibrant tracks outside on the patio. Had a great time and didn't even miss the Eggs Benedict!

I am a HUGE fan of all Asian food - so when I heard about this place I was super excited to try it out. My first experience was a sit-down week-day lunch. The first thing I noticed was the minimal staff - cooks in the back and 1 hostess/order-taker at the door (no waiters). Once we ordered, it took about 10 minutes to get our soup and another 15 or 20 to get our entree - this is not ideal for a working lunch! I was unimpressed with the service, but the food made up for the wait. I got the Mango Sweet and Sour Chicken which was totally delicious - great portions are provided and very unique vegetables are implemented into the dish. My friend got a Beef dish that was equally tasty. If you are not on a time schedule - go for the dine-in experience. But every other time I've eaten here, it's been pick-up. The portions are just as generous for take-out!

This has quickly become my favorite Asian American or Asian Fusion restaurant. The trendy decor and casual atmosphere make it fun to dine but the food it what brings you back. My favorites are what sound like old faithfuls; Madarin Orange Chicken and Mango Sweet and Sour but Mak Chin's take on the classic Asian American dishes is delightful.
The condiment bar with asian delights is fab too, especially while your waiting to chow down. They always have great specialty hot and cold teas that vary from visit to visit and gourmet asian inspired desserts that make you want to break your diet.

Food is great, but costs more than I would normally pay for this Pei Wei type cuisine. Makes it a little unreasonable for a work lunch break, but good for a friday night dinner.

Ordering at the counter and food-wise it does remind me of Pei Wei, and having the bar and patio reminds me a bit of PF Chang's (which owns Pei Wei). So I guess Mak Chin's is a combination of the two places. It's a nice addition to the area since PW and PF doesn't have a place near by. The food is good and I love the condiment bar. I am confused about the cliental they are trying to attract since I saw people fresh off the jogging loop at Memorial Park as well as suits from downtown. But the location is great and I believe everyone will find something to suit their taste there.

ok, ive been here 4 times now and im still not sure what they want to be... lounge, take out asian, patio bar, sports bar??? there is something really coool about the vibe and the service (especially in the bar) is fantastic. as far as the food goes, i definitelty see the pei wei comparison, but to be honest its not as good as pei wei. everything ive had with shrimp has been good - but sometimes a little bland (i highly suggest interviewing the sauce bar!) one thing i do NOT enjoy are the chicken lettuce wraps - they are HORRIFFIC! not so much bad, just not right! the chicken filler concoction is almost identical to the chicken salad at either murphys deli or chik-fil-a. its WAY too finely chopped such that you dont know where chicken stops and nuts begin. a nice addition to the neighborhood, if they can get the food kinks worked out it could be a standout!

I brought friends here on my birthday and we had a wonderful time. The food was awesome - one of my friends was so impressed she ordered it for her husband's birthday party that weekend. The prices are reasonable, the atmosphere's fun, but what I loved best was the easy access between the restaurant, bar/lounge, and patio. It was pouring rain when we went, and we just kept moving back and forth between the rooms as the evening progressed.

Despite the casual counter service concept, the atmosphere at Mak Chin's is modern and trendy. Seating options include a traditional dining room, an adjacent bar/lounge area with raised seating and cozy couches, or…
