Situated at InterContinental resort the venue is famous for its interiors, food and teppan show. The show is done in a separate teppan room, which is quite often crowded so that you will have to share the teppan with other visitors. Good sake choice, excellent food and amazing show! Well worth a visit!

This is definitely the most beautiful and exquisite Japanese restaurant, we have been to. The gardens and fish ponds are beautiful and it takes you away to a different place, the moment you walk through the doors. The food is authentic Japanese, in our opinion and we had the most fun filled and extraordinary Teppinyaki experience. The atmosphere, service, food,... More

We ate here at least 5 times during our 3 week stay in Bali. Having eaten at Nobu, Koi, etc - this places blows them all away. The sushi is amazing. We also had a teppanyaki dinner which was fun & fabulous! It's a must do in Bali!

The Ko Japanese Restaurant at the InterContinental Bali Resort is a true experience with the chef performing right at the table. The food was excellent and the performance was spectacular. I am a vegan and the chef took special care to give me exactly what I wanted.

An extraordinary incursion into Assian cuisine. Staff above my expectations. Chefs are friendly and ready to fulfill any extra requirements. Ambient is fantastic, Japanese gardens had the role to relax.

The food was very good and service was excellent. Love the cocktail menu. Very expensive though, my husband had a steak (basically) which cost $65, we don't even pay that at home.

I am a big fan of modern Japanese restaurants in Australia and have some high benchmarks to beat. That said, I was not expecting to be amazed by a Japanese restaurant in Bali. For me, Ko was an exquisite, albeit expensive night out. The Japanese gardens (moodily light for night time) are delightful and the entry through narrow corridors to... More

Everytime we stay in Jimbaran, we never missed Ko. We could come more than once in one visit. The quality of meat, sashimi & the sushi rice never fail.
