I enjoyed the food especially the set menu

A lovely atmosphere, tastey food, although the service was slow, as it took a while before the food started to arrive, the service was pleasant

Although oddly located in Cairns, near the Hospital, the food and ambience inside the restaurant is excellent. Parking can b a bit of a hassle at times but well worth the effort. The set lunch menu gives a good selection of Balinese food for a reasonable price.

We had a set selection of about ten dishes, served with matching wines, and every single one was nice. We had never had Balinese food before so we won't have known what to order, so this was an excellent introduction. Clearly worth the price. Friendly staff.

Have been here a few times now and the food is great!!! The chicken curry is so delicious, I often crave it. Usually it's so busy so have to wait in the bar for a while but it is always worth it! The location is a bit random too but the food is epic!

This place is brilliant. The food is full of flavour and offers sometime different from the standard Asian fare you get a other places. Make sure you try the corn fritters and satay entree complete with burning coals giving a lovely smoked flavour to the meat. We will be back next time to enjoy the banquet which looked amazing and...

I absolutely love this restaurant! I have been a few times for lunch with work colleagues. There is a tasting plate which is around $22 per person at lunch. It includes Satay, rice, a few different curries, pickled vegetables and a fruit platter. Dinner is similar but with more variety and more dishes. Dinner also has an aMazing selection of... More

Booked for a large group. The waitress was rude and unwilling to make any changes to dishes for the one vegan who ended up eating nothing. No table service for drinks so we faced a 20 minute wait at the bar. We were advised the wait was because they were 'so busy' - manage your staffing better then? Hot &... More

Great restaurant, ambient, food. Be prepared to wait some time for service, since place is always crowded - need reservation! But it´s worth.
