We went to Putu's after reading the reviews. We went during a quiet time so there weren't a lot of people there. Our visit turned out to be one of the best dining experiences we had. Putu was charming. Her restaurant had a great local vibe to it and we thought her food was the best local dishes we ever... More

Delicious meal in a small street close to Ubud's main Road. Putu's cooking is really special. We had her special Babi Kecap and the pisang goreng as a dessert, And both were absolutely great. It was one of the best diners we had in Indonesia.

we've been to putu's due to the positive ratings on tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed! cozy little restaurant, only 5 tables available and a small menu, but a perfect selection of indonesian food. try the nasi campur and the pisang goreng (fried banana with homemade palm sugar sauce, to die for). there's the chance to book a smoked duck feast...

We brought our families because reviews said this was a great local restaurant. This was understatement - this was a truly wonderful meal: succulent, sweet, rich smoked duck and chicken, beautifully constructed salads, superb value all round and an absolute highlight of our trip. Great for kids - our fussy one loved the satay sticks and the duck. Adults just... More

Impressed by the TripAdvisor reviews, we went there on Sunday night, 2 families with 4 adults and 4 kids. The restaurant is very small, so we booked via email and ordered the signature smoked duck in advance (you need to order at least the day before). The meal was magnificent, not just the duck (which was delicious) but also the... More

What a great find. We booked to eat after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and were so glad we did. It is hidden away and you wouldn't be likely to pass it but DO make the effort to go. We booked the duck in advance and it came as part of a huge set dinner. The flavours were really good... More

The wi-fi password for Putu's Wild Ginger is "madewithlove" and that sentiment is entirely evident when your food arrives at your table. You will be genuinely welcomed by Nyoman and Putu (as she leaves the kitchen for a minute) and seated at a table in a small and cosy room. We pre-ordered one smoked duck dinner. We expected this to... More

We finally tried this warung after driving past numerous times and we are so glad we did. This is a lovely family owned and run resto. The two things that stood out the most about our experience were the attention to detail and the sense of pride. Whilst the service is not exceptionally fast (indeed, it's nice to just relax... More

I happen to indulge in heaven on a plate @ wild ginger!! I've heard rumors of this quaint restaurant and found myself eating an amazing home cooked meal there one night, and checking the menu I noticed a feast of smoked duck which requires 24 hrs notice. Deciding that I had a few more days there and the service and... More
