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.

Authentic Balinese

This is a small warung run by Putu and her husband yeoman. You often need to book as its so popular seats about 20 people in a quiet street of the Main Street of Ubud called Kutuh Kelod The food is authentic Balinese delicious and not expensive

We really enjoyed our dinner here. The restaurant is operated by an original and very friendly family. The decoration is nice and the prices are as well. We loved the guacamole with sweet potatoes as appetizer and the deep fried banana with coconut as dessert was also delicious. The curry wasn't that tasteful unfortunately, not the same as in Thailand.... More

Good Indonesian food for an Indonesian price (<€ 3.50 for a course). Of course it is this not the best food you can get but it might be the best value for money. Nice and cozy atmosphere and friendly host. Place is somewhat hidden so despite sitting next to a street there is little to no traffic. Would recommend for... More

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

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.
