Embrace your inner monkey!

If Japanese snow monkeys lived in Reykjavik, they’d be right at home at Makake. With their natural curiosity and shared love of hot springs, snow fights and delicious food, the monkey is Makake’s spirit animal.

Sister restaurant to Ramen Momo, Makake is the rambunctious sibling. Here, it is all about sharing — small bites, custom drinks and a culinary adventure of Asia here in Iceland.
