My wife and I happened upon the Batan Waru while searching unsuccessfully for another restaurant in Kuta. We were very impressed with the Batan Waru. The food was excellent, as was the ambiance and the service. The lunch menu included three different set price meals, each for only 95,000 Rupiah (or about $7.40 in US Dollars at the prevailing exchange... More

Located out front of Lippo Mall, South Kuta, Bali, the kafe hides behind Starbucks... and serves Indonesian food with fusion influences. We had lunch there today and we were very pleasantly surprised by the service, quality of food and cost. There are boards everywhere promoting different daily specials and such but we settled on two Set Dinners for 95,000++ rupiah... More

I ordered the set menu which included: Soto Ayam, Ayam Rica-Rica and Klappertart (Dutch bread pudding). Food was delivered timely. Service was impeccable. Staff were attentive. As soon as I had finished the soup they made sure the main was ready and delivered to my table. They did the same after the main and ensured the dessert was delivered timely... More

Kafe Batan Waru have moved to Lippo Mall. Much further than it's earlier location (opp WaterBom Park). It took probably another 15mins from it's last location with kids in toll. We almost gave up while in search for it as the locals kept telling us to walk ahead which seems never-ending. Service seems lacking during this visit. The previous batch... More

The food is more expensive than the previous restaurant that occupied this location. We found the food to be good and the service to be excellent. Will come back in the future.

On our recent holiday in Bali we returned to the restaurant as we had enjoyed our previous experience at this location. We were welcomed back as part of the family. Once again the service was superb, the drinks cool and refreshing with great choices. Our group consisted of 6 adults and the order, Nasi goring, BBQ pork spare ribs, chicken... More

Our hotel resort, Amandari, recommended this as a great Indonesian restaurant, so our expectations were not met here. This is a nice-enough outdoor cafe with a limited menu of Indonesian and non-Indonesian food. Service was barely adequate...we had to keep signaling for a waiter when we wanted to order, or another drink, or for our check, although the place was... More

Friendly staffs and nice interior, but can't say much nice thing about the food. Quite pricey, but the food was quite bland for me. I ordered Sayur Asem, an Indonesian delicacy, but it wasn't near to the true taste of it. My mom ordered Mie goreng (fried noodle), it was too salty to eat. It was a disappointing experience, I'm...
