We were upset when we went past where Batan waru used to be and it was no longer there. But we were lucky to find it has moved to the Lippo mall on jl kartikka plaza, and it's still the same quality food and service. Very good Indonesian menu but prices were a little higher than I remember.

Last time I had the pleasure of eating here they were at their old location near Discovery Mall. The new location at Lippo Mall has lost some of the atmosphere, but the food is still amazing. Flavoursome, perfectly prepared & served, and just the right sized portions. Admittedly I did only have the Balinese or Indonesian dishes so I can't... More

This restaurant turned out to be our favorite lunch place on our Kuta visit. The food is tasty and colourful and the staff is just super great. A special thanks to Indra who took such nice care of our 2,5-year old during our latest lunch, awesome... Thumbs up!

Ate here twice, a little more pricier than smaller street eateries but the serves are a little larger and quality is far better. Service was excellent both times and the AC comfort factor is also a winner from cheaper eateries.

We chose this restaurant because it was an easy walk from the hotel, and we were very pleasantly surprised. It was absolutely delicious and the food was fresh and interesting and not too spicy for non-Indonesians. The mocktails were fantastic, especially the Batan Waru which was full of ginger and mint.

Hi there, We are sad to hear you did not think the dish was spicy enough. As you mentioned, it is indeed the case that our recipes have been formulated to suit our international guests who do not have the spice capacity of locals.
