I love the setting of this resto. With rice paddies at the back, cool weather and delicious food! The duck is very crunchy although it is a little dry for my husband. But I loved it!

It is a huge property restaurant with a rice field at the back. Very relaxing, quality of the food is good with reasonable price. Recommended for those visitor visiting Ubud area to try this restaurant.

The duck here seems to be skinnier than the ones I would usually get from the Chinatown in Manhattan (Chinese Roasted version). I would not go out of the way just to try this duck. Lucky for me, my hotel was just located less than 2 minutes away from it. Just to try something different, this place it worth the... More

Not for everyone, but the Crispy Duck was amazing. I went here for a Saturday Lunch. I think many Western diners miss the point of this place. It's somewhere between an oasis and a restaurant. Don't go here if you want a quick 'in-and-out' lunch. If you get the option, sit in the huts with the pillows where you can... More

We came here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon recommended by our driver. My partner and I both ordered the Crispy Duck which is their specialty - it was delicious! We got the choice of sitting on pillows on the ground or at table with chairs, we chose the traditional approach and found the afternoon on pillows very relaxing. It's... More

This Restaurant is really quite unique. Firstly, the name Dirty Duck, which I was told was given because during the phase of building the place, a group of ducks flew in , waddled across the floor and dirtied up the premises. Secondly it's setting in lovely manicured gardens , fronting a padi field is a joy to behold.The restaurant is... More

My first time trying dirty duck and I was delighted to have tasted it. First, let me qualify that the duck was indeed small. The size of the fowl looks more like a free range chicken. Nonetheless, the taste was fantastic. The duck was super crispy as it was double fried just like how you would do a crispy chicken... More

We went there following a friend's recommendation. My advise is go for the pork ribs. Although the speciality is duck, I was disappointed. Having tasted Cantonese crispy duck with pancakes and hoisin sauce, and confit de canard french style, I thought their duck wasn't very good. My wife's pork ribs were tasty though.

We used the recommendation from our friend who recommend us before other cool place. Unfortunately, this time it was a bad shot. Duck was very dry! The portion was quite small. They gave so many spices. Rice combined with potatoes - who invented it? Unpalatable! it was not very bad, but it was so experience and NOT worth the money... More

Don't bother to waste your money. Use the money for a massage will be more worthwhile. Skinny duck with not much meat. I can get a whole duck in Singapore with the same amount paid.
