Came here for our first night on Kuta. Really nice place - fishpond in the centre of the restaurant! Food was excellent, not too expensive either. Really enjoyed the enchiladas, nice and cheesy. Nachos were awesome too! Really friendly staff, and lovely place to go.

Didn't consult trip advisor so hot from a day in the sun. Ended up in TJ's Mexican, the place is average at best. We ordered the set menu and it was pretty clear that they don't put any effort into it. Cocktails were pretty poor and food was beyond mild even though we asked for extra hot and added chilli...

Came here 6 times when stopping over on our month in Bali and everytime the cocktails were just as spectacular as the last! Margaritas are out of this world; generous, flavoursome and fresh! The staff are exceptionally friendly and attentive , the place is atmospheric and the rest rooms are equipped and very clean. Ate here once or twice and... More

Access in a wheelchair was not easy with a couple of steps helped by the friendly staff so proved no real problem. I didn't even dream about an accessible toilet so did not try. My frozen margarita was tasteless & I sent it back. The remainder of the food was flavourless & lacking in flavour & spice. Even their jalapeños... More

It just seems funny that the day after I used my credit card at this restaurant and it was the only time I had used it in Bali that it got compromised. The following day I started to get fraudulent transactions on my account - lucky for me my bank was onto it and cancelled my card immediately. So if... More

We were very upset and concerned to hear that you had credit card problems possibly after using it in our restaurant. In 30 years trading we have never had a problem of this kind. We have not been informed by Visa of any ensuing problem and have no evidence or knowledge of this problem. There is no name mentioned or... More

I have been going to TJ's for over 24 years. The food is fantastic and so are the drinks. The atmosphere is wonderful. It is a great family place to eat. You can have your food as in spicy to your liking. The stuffed baked potato is to die for. Love it.

Haven't been to bali for 10 years and was stoked to see it still there. Ate here twice this trip, I love it because the food is amazing and the restaurant reminds me of the old bali from when I was a kid going on family holidays. I had the chicken fajitas which were delicious. I know it's been here... More

I first came here 28 years ago and have visited every time to Bali since. Located in Poppies 1, TJs is an experience you don't want to miss. A lovely atmosphere arranged around a large pond full of fish, you instantly feel removed from the rest of the world. Amazing lunchtime deals, excellent selection of Mexican and other cuisines, TJs... More
