Four of us dined at this restaurant on two separate occasions. Great food, nice surroundings. Took us a little while to find it but worth the effort. Have a taxi take you first time because i rhink you'll be back. Food was great. Try a couple of the little plates. Great to share.

We had dinner at Kafe Batan Waru which is located at the new Lippo Mall. Here you can enjoy the local Balinese food at reasonable price. Try their Mie Goreng and Sate! They do have 'live' band but it is rather loud for us.

Although this restaurant is a bit further away by the Lippomall now, its worth the hike if you are staying further away. Food is ALWAYS delicious, ALWAYS presented beautifully and ALWAYS well-priced. Service is also outstanding, some of the best I've had in a low-budget restaurant. Although the new set-up is temporarily outside, we received awesome service from the wait... More

We ate here again on three occasions on our recent trip to Bali. The restaurant has changed location and is now outside the new Lippo Mall on Jalan Kartika Plaza. Food was always delicious and I especially enjoyed the chicken curry. Chilli crab night was a huge hit with my husband and daughter. The staff are very attentive and pleasant,... More

The reason i didn't give it 4 stars was because the duck we had ordered (2plates) were over cooked. Rest of the family had fried noodles and fried rice and they like it. Spring rolls and tofu dish are nice too. Ambience is nice and relaxing. Were told by staff they are closing down in June and moving down the... More

We ate here on several occasions during our month stay in Kuta. This was one of our favorite restaurants. On our last visit we were presented with a letter (see photo) stating that after ten years in this location the restaurant would be moving. They have not found another location yet so the staff has been told that they will... More

We are currently staying in Tuban. We have now had two meals here and all have been very good quality and most reasonably priced. Rendang is the pick. Service is excellent
