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.

A delicious meal

From all the reviews of this place, you can't but get excited. This very small restaurant (about 4 tables) was great and we can see why so many people return. The food tasted amazing, so much so that we would have eaten the whole meal twice over. I recommended to others who were passing through and... read more

My friends and I had the pleasure of dining at Putu's Wild Ginger a couple weeks ago during a trip to Ubud. It was a recommendation of our villa (Villa Madu) which was just a few short minutes walk down the road so very convenient. We also saw the good TripAdvisor reviews so figured it was worth a shot. It... More

The best Indonisian food I've ever eaten. And for a very reasonable price! The staff is incredible welcoming and genuinely friendly. Don't miss the opportunity to taste Putu's food if you stop in Ubud.

Little warung, walking distance from the center. The food is made with love and you can taste that! The dressing on the advocado chicken salad is to die for. Putu keeps the recepy a secret. Main dishes also perfect Relaxed atmosphere. We felt really wellcome. Thanks for the wonderfull diner.

Honestly we went all the way up there three times - day and night, and it was always closed. Gutted we couldn't try. Maybe they should clear a little bit the working hours somewhere on the door or some sort.

I have been here many times. Every time the food is fantastic. Great flavors and made with love. Putu is my master chef Bali. She takes her job very serious and always with a smile. Looking forward to eating there again.

Make a reservation, this place is very cozy with 4 or 5 tables. Food was inexpensive and well prepared. No wine here, and the family who owns the restaurant are all very friendly. It feels like you went to a friend's house for dinner. Ate here April of 2015.
