Affordable romantic dining

Had dinner here with the fiance on our last night in Bali and decided to order the minami set and special set. These are roughly 8-course meals at only RP300++K per set, which is a steal compared to where I come from! We didn't regret our decision. The ambience was lovely, tables nicely spaced out... read more

I went there when I spend my weekend in Ubud and find this nice semi outdoor restaurant with really nice garden where I chose to sit there.. ordering sashimi and sushi and salmon salad and since I'm sashimi and sushi lovers I can tell that the chef really know what he's doing. He chose the best and perfect part of... More

We have ben to Minami before a few years ago so decided to go on our recent trip to Ubud. The food here is just amazing, so fresh and so Japanese, I have eaten at the Tokyo fish markets where you wait hours for a table and I think Minami is better. This restaurant is a little way out of... More

Saturated with Indonesian fare we tried our luck at Minami - a lucky strike indeed. AFter our first night we came out agreeing that it was the best Japanese meal we had outside of Japan. Minami has it all: a lovely setting, discrete service, and great food. Edamame tempura was a noverly and the presentation of the tuna sashimi a... More

Spent an evening there during our visit to Ubud last December. Not impressive. Tempura was not light and crunchy but rather soaked in a thick batter. Sushi roll done with no expertise. The hot pot, which should be served with a clear strong broth was served just with boiling water - no taste, and not enough meat. Service is aloof.... More

We went based on a friend's recommendation and loved this restaurant. Beautiful decor overlooking a Japanese garden, a complete oasis from the street. We felt special straight away. The food was all extremely delicious and exquisitely presented. We shared a number of different dishes and the timing of service was impeccable. And the staff were very attentive. Highly recommended, thanks... More

The very first time I ate lunch at Minami, (which is now considered by many to be the very best Japanese restaurant on the whole island of Bali and maybe in the wider global horizon), I was immediately transported to another island, this time to where Osaka is.The restaurant is owned and managed by a Japanese family who attend to...
