After days eating Indonesian food, we wanted a bit of change and decided to have Japanese at Minami. We were very pleasantly surprised. The seating area of the restaurant faces a lovely tranquil courtyard which was a very nice sitting on a rainy afternoon. Service was good and prompt. The food was great. I had what was in my view...

My last meal in Ubud and Bali and Indonesia itself was at Minami (fitting as Japan is the destination of my next major trip) and it was a great choice. Aside from the entrance, there are none of the usual signs that you are at a Japanese restaurant-no tatami floors, lanterns etc but rather a bright and airy space facing... More

My wife and I are always drawn to Japanese restaurants and food. About half a kilometre west of the Campuhan Bridge. Minami offers a relaxed garden dining area. While the food may not be authentic in the strict sense, the gyoza entreat was better than experienced in some places. Good value for money, friendly staff and clean facilities, (yes, one... More

We haven't visited many Japanese restaurants but thought we would like to try one again. I had literally stumbled upon Minami when looking at art galleries and shops opposite our hotel. Choosing one of the set menus made life easier for the novice. All the courses were beautifully presented and a delight to the taste-buds. The staff were very attentive... More

Well what a special place this restaurant is, with an ambiance of relaxed and understated luxury. The food and presentation was beautiful. Japanese fare beyond sushi has to be understood otherwise it can seem a bit bland. You are not going to get a big curry or steak here so come with some open minded taste buds that perhaps enjoy...

Excellent!! One of the best sushis I ever had. I have been twice and will be back again if I go to Bali for vacation.

If you are a lover of Japanese food then you can't go wrong at this small and stylish restaurant in the heart of Sanggingan. Everything about the place is delightful: garden, decor and service and the food is exceptional. We ordered the set menu and were not disappointed as every course was delicious and was served with the same eye... More

Great value for money, go with the set menu as that will pretty much cover most of their a la carte menu. Overall a great little place for Japanese food without the astronomical prices that may come with an experience like this. The only let down was the beef tataki which was a bit over cooked and hence a little... More

A cosy Japanese restaurant that will bring a smile to your face once you try their food. The first impression I had when I stepped into Minami is quality and service. Everything from staff service to food plating did not disappoint. Minami takes good care to present their food beautifully and the food quality and taste is top notch. My... More
