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

Visited Wild Ginger twice. Their story printed on their menu makes you enjoy their warung even more. Their dessert pancake is great and walking distance from the fabulous Kano Sari Villas. Can't wait to feast on their smoked duck feast in March.

This was the best Indonesian meal we had in Bali, and one of the better smoked duck dishes I've had ever! Several friends told us to visit Putu and Nyoman for excellent, warm service and authentic home cooked meals and they weren't exaggerating. The preparations are more full of fresh herbs and flavor than any other Indo restaurant we tried... More

After reading about it on TripAdvisor, we decided to eat dinner here and it absolutely lived up to its expectations. Great Indonesian food, great cozy atmosphere (only 5 tables ), the owner was so friendly and the food was amazing. Fresh ingredients, a lot of flavor for a bargain. Not easy to find, one of the side streets off the... More

Lovely evening at Putu's & Nyoman place. Hiding in the center of Ubud, this very quiet and charming place will provide you with some outstanding indonesian dishes along with a GREAT hospitality. Definitely the place to go for a nice indonesian diner in Ubud.
