Pretentious with over solicitous service. Tried to do a la carte looking food but everyone still hungry when we left. Had desert at another restaurant as the waiter was really irritating and, not their fault, the people on the next table were talking so loud couldn't hear ourselves think. On the plus side cocktails were good

As there are not so many good restaurants in Sanur I can understand that a few above-average restaurants get overrated. The food is OK, price looks cheap, but the portions are pretty small. The waitresses hesitate to bring the wine, cocktail and special of today menu, which is listed on a big piece of wooden board. Service varies extremely from... More

I stopped in here for lunch as I was riding past as I remembered the name from TA. It was a late lunch and I was the only person in the restaurant, but the food was delicious. I had the Mei Goreng and a bintang and it cost $3.80 aud. great value! It is quite a small restaurant so if... More

We visited Kayu Manis after reading the raving reviews on Tripadvisor. As an entree we had vietnamese spring rolls, as well as some fresh ravioli and bread that was complimentary. For mains we had salmon and duck breast, which were both nice. The desserts were also good, and the presentation was pretty impressive. The service was excellent - almost at... More

We went there last night purely based on its score from Trip Advisor. Yes this place is upmarket-ish in appearance, the staff are friendly and super efficient, BUT the menu is nearly all western. Servings are well presented but small and food quality was at best average. Value not so good - a bit expensive given what you get.

The menu has a great selection of Asian and international dishes, with a personal touch. No matter what you order, the presentation and quality of the food was outstanding. The waiter and waitress were extremely friendly. Don't hesitate to go if you're in Sanur.

Every time we go to sanur we always eat at Kayu manis and the food, service and atmosphere has always been great. The head chef, owner comes out to see if everything was fine and of course it always is. I had the duck on polenta with an amazing balsamic reduction. The only negative is the desserts are not as...

Wow. The food, presentation and service were all excellent. I had the grilled snapper and decided I wanted a lighter (no cream) and spicier sauce . The chef prepared a slightly spicy tomato relish for me. It was the perfect compliment to my meal. The fish was grilled to perfection - flaky and moist. My husband loved his soup and... More

Third time here and it's still as good as I remember. The first time we went it was a tiny place and taxi drivers had trouble finding it, but now it's a bigger place and they all know it. The food is a cut above the usual places and is more expensive, but still a bargain compared with equivalent places... More
