This is the second time i have dined at sakala, the first time was a wow the second time a big flat let down. Im not sure what the point of putting a small candle in a scented oil and not even lighting it meant, perhaps they are making cut backs. The food was a little better than average but... More

I dine at Sakala with friends lately and it was certainly the best meals we had in Bali. The food is divine. The quality of the products and presentations is from a Michelin star restaurant. Each dishes tasted different but better one than another. we will certainly return to Sakala and next time enjoy their tapas menu as well! Well... More

It was our last day and we found this place only 600mtr away from where we were staying. After phoning to reserve a table we were told that we would be picked up from our hotel. To cut a long story short this never happened as they said that they had been calling our room to tell us but we... More

This restaurant is superb! It is not that easy to find a gourmet restaurant in Nusa Dua (without having to turn to the high priced St Regis hotel restaurant). This fine restaurant is nearby located in Benoa and they even provided complementary taxi service. Dinner was so good we went twice. All my four dishes were beautifully presented, and almost... More

We loved it here so much, we had lunch 3 times! While the prices are higher than your typical Bali restaurant, the value/quality trade-off is more than worth it - particularly for lunch (the prices on the dinner menu do seem to climb fairly high). From the complementary artisan bread to the stunning tapas (including beef cheek spring rolls that... More

The Sakala in the Chedi Hotel is a modern Restaurant with very up-market settings and a Menu to match. From the time we arrived for lunch to the time we left we felt treated royally to the most exquisite cuisine with impeccable service. One would thing very expensive, but no, prices were very reasonable across the board. It is worth... More

Despite having almost no clients (around half of the place was empty) every dish took an eternity to arrive to the table. Luckly the wine selection helped to lose the notion of time (and buckets of money). Food was a little bit boring but acceptable. Nice atmosphere, nice staff, but very bad experience in general due to the slow unjustified... More

The cocktails were certainly enjoyable but the restaurant failed to appeal. There is only one asian option on the menu (Javanese prawns) and we certainly were not impressed by the choices available. The food we chose, Javanese prawns and ham pizza were hardly tasty and pleasant. The service was a bit slow though friendly enough. We have had good meals... More

We first went to Sakala in Feb 2012. It was amazing. We have been back 6 times since. We were there in March and it was still great. Sadly, when we were there yesterday, it was a big disappointment. The food was not quite as good as usual. Mediocre to say the least. The service.... it was a big letdown.... More
