We were staying at the Intercontinental Bali Resort and this restaurant is inside the resort. We came for the Tokyo Night where you can choose 8 from the 15 tapas style menu on offer. I thought that it was ok, some of the dishes were outstanding like the Beef teppanyaki on skewer, wagyu sushi but the rest were pretty average.... More

Ko was an amazing experience! The service was efficient, attentive and friendly. The restaurant itself and gardens are inspiring. Most importantly the food was fresh and delicious. I have only one other dining experience which is close to comparison that being Tetsuyas Sydney.

The food was fabulous, although it is quite pricey. Wonderful atmosphere and great. friendly service. Everything was so fresh that it was worth the high prices.

Very authentic and well designed restaurant. Setting and ambiance was perfect to suit the dining experience. Food was delicious, and cooked fresh in front of you. Chefs were trained like stars putting up a show every time a dish was prepared. It was very entertaining and really enhanced the dining experienced. Loved it!
