We went here because of the good reviews and were not disappointed. The service was very friendly and the food was great, very tasty with Indonesian flavours. Can especially recommend the pork dish and the BBQ chicken. Great spot for a relaxed budget meal.

Dined here at 6pm and was the only person in the restaurant. I was immediately welcomed by one of the two brothers, Puti, whose manners and customer relations were impeccable. I also met the owner/chef Nyoman, a true gent and deliverer of promises. I was taken through the menu and it is clear these brothers know their trade inside out.... More

Food is very very cheap (was 5gbp for two for dinner) and extremely tasty and good. It is a bit out of the hub of sanur but definitely worth going to. I have paid ten times as much for meals which aren't nearly as good.

Just arrived back from Makan SMS, and couldn't wait to write a review about this gorgeous Warung. As all the other reviews, the restaurant is off the main road, a little difficult to find, definitely get a taxi driver to get you there. We had gado gado, spring rolls, ayam soto (indonesian chicken soup with glass noodle), pork ribs (and... More

Great guys and wonderful food. Apparently they have a friendly contest with Little Birs on being nr 2 and 3 in Sanur on TA and I do not know who wins... Little Bird is always very crowded. This SMS was empty - which I totally do not understand. Kids very welcome. Take a Taxi and go there.

We used to live in Betngdang but never new this warung existed.....to our detriment. It was only once we'd moved that we found it one night coming home & what a find. We've tried a number of their dishes over the time & even ask the locals dining there, what they are having....that's always a good indication also. We also... More

SO worth the taxi fare down a little lane off the main drag to sample a true chef's take on his national dishes in an authentic street side setting. Taste the broths and sauces before you start each dish for just a hint of what's to come. A relatively basic but delicious menu if you are after indonesian food in... More
