Putu's Wild Ginger is built out of love. Love that Putu and her husband, Nyoman, want to share with you. If you're coming through Ubud, swing by for the best home-cooked meal on the island. Reservations strongly recommended. Please give 24 hours notice if you'd like to try Putu's famous smoked duck feast.

The reason to go out for food...

By far and away the most welcoming family Resturant outside of my fiancés family dinner (they do welcome me really ;-)) Jealous that we didn't pre-book the duck! But we will be back! Old school as old school goes - please never change 5* all areas

Recommended by my boyfriend's friend. Better be familiar with Ubud vicinity if you plan to walk to this place, suggest you go in daytime also. We ordered the Guacamole with Sweet Potato Fries and the Shrimp Crackers, and the Chicken Avocado Salad with Tomato Kecap, both were equally good!! Then I had the Pork with Special Sauce. It was great... More

Excellent food (try the Nasi Campur!), good service by the owners themselves! We'd definitely recommend coming here.

We got there early and managed to get a table (we were the only ones there but was booked out later). The service was fine however I found the food to be rather bland And I was expecting more after reading the reviews. The sweet potato deep fried in coconut oil was ok but rather dry. The guacamole was already... More

A small family run warung. Impeccably clean. The menu specifically mentions that they use mineral water to wash vegies and for ice. Putu and her family can be proud of their special little place. Delicious Balinese / Indonesian food. Limited alcohol choices – Bintang. Nyoman is the patriarch and keeps the customers happy whilst Putu and her team run the... More

Set back off the main street of Ubud,this café offers excellent cooking,pleasant service and a really nice ambience. It.s only open at night and certainly worth a try.

This restaurant is located just around the corner of the busy main street. A very small place that seats 18 people. But don't let the looks fool you. This restaurant lives up to it's motto: made with love! Go there.

My wife and I had a lovely meal at Putu's last week. We chose Putu's based on TA reviews and proximity to our accommodation. Once again we hit the jackpot. The whole package is first rate, the dining room, the service, and oh the food! My taste buds are still tingling from Putu's special Indonesian curry. Do yourself a favour... More
