You're basically eating in the front area of their home & you can see them cooking in the kitchen just beyond the dining area. Putu, her husband & their assistant are very friendly. There's only a few tables so it's best to book & they're only open in the evenings & not on Saturdays! The menu is somewhat small/limited but... More

14 of us ate here Christmas Eve and pretty much filled the restaurant. It is a lovely intimate place which is literally the owners home. Food was delicious- although you cant be in a hurry here. Very very reasonably priced. we also got takeaway here another night for the kids. Would definitely recommend.

We have dined at Wild Ginger many times and it is a must visit in Ubud. Putu and Nyoman will look after you like royalty and the food is outstanding. Should be No 1 in Ubud

Read about Putu's Wild Ginger on Tripadvisor and was very lucky the restaurant could accommodate our party of 10 at one of only a few tables, especially as we had just called earlier in the afternoon. Off one of Ubud's main streets is this wonderful gem of a restaurant. The food was great! Order the guacamole dip appetizer with sweet... More

This restaurant is small with only 5 or 6 tables but has a lovely atmosphere. It's owners Nyoman and Putu are passionate about their home cooking and do a fantastic job. You feel like you're invited into their home. It truly is an experience and is why I enjoy coming back. The prices are cheap and Putu's Special sauce is... More

Tucked away on a quiet street, this small but perpetually charming family-run restaurant is among my favorites in Ubud. The food is always tasty, colorful and worth the wait. And don't be surprised if you're asked, mid-meal, how you like the food. This family prides itself on preparing only the best!

We were recommended to eat here from our AirBnb and it was a hit. Really small place with lovely people working there and good prices. We would recommend this place to anyone traveling through Ubud!

Liked the super fresh food, friendly service. Not expensive. There soto and nazi campur are especially good. They also will do delivery. If you have the facility, Putuh will cater for a large group and do a variety of dishes including bebek betutu and smoked chicken.

I always admire when a restaurant has a beautiful story behind it and this one surely does. I had the Putu's special and it was absolutely delicious. The restaurant is small and authentic and the staff are very friendly. Also the guacamole entree is a must. Highly recommended whilst in Ubud.

We ordered Putu's duck feast - it came with chicken and satay and salads and curries too - and absolutely enjoyed it. The smoked duck was really good but my favourite was the tofu and tempeh curry. Ate every last bit even though I was stuffed. The feast isn't cheap (IDR700,000 for 4 pax) but it was good food that... More
