It's a small restaurant with good maintenance. The food is pretty good, and they have a live accoustic performance. Their nasi goreng was good. But I think, all the menu were overpriced, since it's located on unfamous busy street in Kuta-Tuban area.

But looks like it's cause they are famous so there are may people coming for decent food. But to be honest, the price is too high for the food quality in our opinion :) But... More

If you have your whole life to wait for the food to come, you can try this restaurant. The food is good. It was not crowded when we came, but took more than 30 minutes for the food to be served.

This is my first (and will not be the last) visit to Plengkung. The food preparation is simple but lips smacking, finger lickingly delicious. Go for their catfish; the fried chicken; the tampe; their stir fried kangkung and of course their sambal. This is traditional Javanese food at its best.

No other words could describe. The food was very tasty, amazing. I've been here many times, and keep coming back. I always recommend this place to friends or families who come to Bali. I love Gurame Goreng and Kangkung. I also love the sambal. They were super delicious. Just love it. ;) Worth try
