Delicious

Visited after reading the reviews and were not disappointed. Yes it does take time but everything is made from scratch with fresh ingredients and worth the wait. The food was delicious and one of our best meals on our whole trip. Better than any meal we have had in a fancy restaurant.

As long as you're aware that every dish is prepared from scratch including sauces, rice, vegetables etc. and the aromas from the outside kitchen swirling around your heart while you're waiting are likely to drive you crazy, you'll be fine. Every dish we've enjoyed here has certainly been worth the wait with the Bornean cuisine simply bursting with flavour. After... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by as the best Indonesian around and in a quiet and intimate setting. It is true about the setting and for those who like hot and spicy food, it is probably true of the food. Three of us ordered mixed seafood and Al found it too hot. The owner who cooks said she only... More

We come to Jadi Cafe every year and have never had a bad meal. The Borneo fish and the chicken lime are excellent. Yes it is down a dark path and the food does takes a long time to be cooked fresh but you can enjoy the peace and quiet with a few drinks and the food is well worth... More

Jadi Cafe is always part of our dining experience when we are in Bali. Again we were not disappointed, food is fantastic...flavours are a treat for the taste buds...all prepared from scratch, so can take awhile if it is busy....we arrived "at the right time" this visit and only waited about 40 minutes...cosy little setting and worth a visit to...

Went there twice in my 6 days visit in bali, friendly host, took 40 to 45 mins to whip up everything but everything is very delicious, she made everything from scratch, entree must have salt pepper prawn, baby scallops, main dishes must try is lime chicken beef rendang on average 80k to 100k per dish..

Eight of us went tonight, is the best food we have had in Bali, everything about this quaint eating experience is superb. So reasonably priced & the freshest food on the island. Go for a walk during the day to find then there is no stress at night. Do yourself a favour & meet & eat this gorgeous ladies food

Finding this food cafe is not hard you walk down the driveway to the pearl French food restaurant then just as you reach the front of the building turn right and jadis the second house on the right. The atmosphere was warm and friendly and the food was the best flavour palate we have had in Bali
