Delicious sushi!

We had the most delicious fish here for dinner. The sashimi was meltingly good. The sushi rice was a little underseasoned for me but still yummy. The banana fritter dessert was also tasty.

We went here for dinner to have a light dinner. Was the quiet seasons. Food was fresh but very expensive for Bali. This is understandable for an international hotel. Paid around $70aud for sashimi salad, sushi roll and sashimi plus 2 gins.

Based on the reviews, my wife and I thought Ko would be a wonderful Japanese dinner for the end of our trip. But it wasn't to be: the security staff manning the hotel's front gate literally told us we couldn't go to the restaurant unless we were guests of the hotel. Ridiculous, embarrassing and highly disappointing.

This restaurant which is located at the intercontinental, is a winner! I got the ko special. It comes with many courses...the highlights were seared tuna, filet, fried rice was to die for. The banana desert was also delicious. My husband ordered teriyaki chicken....also very good! Ambiance walking in, 5 stars.....just lovely!!
