We had calamari appetizer and 3 different kinds of Prawns. Chili, Garlic and Garlic with Lemon Grass. Of we topped each dish off with ice cold beer. The prices are a bit more expensive but we treated ourselves to some great food..

We had dinner at Chili in January 2015 and have to stay this small family restaurant is an absolute GEM in Kuta. You have to try their speciality: Chili Crab. crabs are fresh... You can actually pick your own (alive) before they cook it. Food has delicious Indonesian flavor and its well spiced. Also the Bintang is the coldest you... More

Small like all the others but the seafood was really good and the bunting beer the coldest in town. The service was really nice and they had great music not too loud.Spring rolls were super as well! All in all my favorite place to eat.

A cute little spot in the middle of town, make sure to order the chili crabs and wash 'em down with a cold Bintang. At about $8 per half kilo, you won't be upset. The garlic prawns are worth ordering as well if you're really hungry, but 1/2kg of crabs is plenty for one person. Make sure to order two... More

Decent seafood for a reasonable price. Not as cheap as some other spots in Kuta, but the food is good and the atmosphere is nice and the staff was good to us.

I read the reviews on trip advisor about this place and the chilli crab. I wasn't disappointed! I highly recommend anyone that likes crab to go here. It's messy eating but well worth it! I went twice on my recent trip to Lombok, both times the crab was huge and full of meat. The garlic king prawns were good also.... More

The food is quite good but the prices are a bit high for what you get. If you like lobster it is probably the place to be, but in other cases you can find better places.

We dined in numerous Warungs in Kuta during our stay. This is one we would return to as the dining experience was traditional, pleasant and the seafood was good.
