Jom Makan means ‘Let’s Go Eat’ and that simple statement is the very ethos behind our no nonsense, minimal restaurant delivering fast, fresh, Malaysian cuisine to your table.

We offer a menu packed full of exciting dishes that appeal to both adventurous and conservative tastes. Remaining true to our roots Jom Makan features dishes that reflect the street food vendors and family kitchens of the true Malaysia.

Jom Makan London Reviews

Rude staff... food was 'okay' - I just came back from Buka Puasa at Jommakan today, a day before Raya. It was the most uncomfortable meal i have ever had in my life. But i do have some positive and some negative feedback to be fair.

The positive side of thing is that their Satay (with the peanut sauce) is very close to authentic. And so does their beef rendang which was absolutely brilliant. As the dinner was for my Raya celebration, having an authentic beef rendang definitely brought me back home.

The ugly side is, unfortunately, a lot. First of all their Roti Canai.... it did not come with any curry! This is absolutely a let down and a shock to me considering that im a Malaysian eating in a Malaysian restaurant. Although the Roti Canai bread itself is authentic, but there's no point eating Roti Canai without a curry to be dipped with. It wouldn't cost a dime to add a small curry to it and i wonder why they would leave this open for complaint.

But the biggest let down was their staff service, and this is the real reason why I said it was the most uncomfortable meal I have ever had. Their staff kept eyeing on us to make sure we finish our food fast so that we can leave early for their next customers - worse is they made this very obvious. At one point their manager even shouted at us saying that they have customers outside queing and they will lose customers if we dont leave soon (yes, shouted). How can a manager embarrassed us like that in front of other customers while we were having a meal? I have never felt so abused and insulted as a customer. Substitute that with a nice talk we would have left the premise happily.

So no, I will not recommend anyone to come to this place and I will also never return to this place. We had such a bad experience to do otherwise.

Malaysian food lover - Excellent - nice to get our first 'fix' of authentic Malaysian food since visiting the country last year!

Everything was wonderful; fresh, flavourful, spicy.
