I really enjoyed my dinner at this restaurant. The wife and husband who run this little restaurant are so welcoming and the food is very good.

It's a slight walk away from the Main Street but was definitely worth it. A cute little restaurant and friendly staff. A basic menu with Indonesian cuisine. The meal was up there with the best I've had in Bali! Would recommend it to others and wish we were staying longer to return!!

Had a lovely meal - can only recommend people going to this wonderful family-run place. A little hidden from the main road - but a hidden jewel!

Suberb, low-key restaurant. They really make you feel like you are in their home. Food was just excellent.

We had this restaurant recommended to us by our accommodation owner. The service was outstanding and so very friendly. The owners both came to chat with us as we ate our delicious meals, commenting on everything from the food to the local customs and religious festivals. Their 'Ginger Fizz' drink was both refreshing and extremely good. A little jewel in... More

We preordered the duck on other reviewers recommendation and it was well worth it. Duck comes with many delicious sides, sambals, green beans, delicious chicken sate and crumbed pork. Bring a big appetite! The owner was very also friendly. Highly recommend the duck!

I read about their possible not opening in other reviews, so write beforehand to ask, it is confirmed that the warung will be open, but when I come as I said in the mail, there is no one. The duck feast is pricy, but I am not to say about the quality of food, since I do not even get... More

We're so sorry we missed you! The restaurant is open 6 days a week for dinner, closed on Saturdays. If you're still in town, we'd love to make it up to you. More

Not sure abt the rest of the menu, we pre-ordered our special duck dinner the day before. The best meal we had @Ubud!! It's like Mum's cooking and feel so much like home. Oh yes, try their rice wine and special blend tea too!! (≧∇≦)

I was looking forward to the visit given the excellent ratings but it turned out to be overhyped. Wasn't sure if i was eating authentic local good but i was pretty sure there were better ones out there that were much cheaper. Restaurant ambience itself was nice, although amidst some dark dingy neighbourhood. It seemed to be a favourite among... More

My husband and i came here for dinner after reading good reviews online! We were not disappointed. They could do with adding more options to the starters but the food was very good. The restaurant is slightly out of the way from ubud centre- maybe 15 mins walk. But i assure you that we felt that it was worth it!... More
