We were lucky enough to turn up without a booking... they managed to squeeze us in. The food was great, we both ordered the special. But the service was very impressive. Wouldn't even expect that level of service back home at an expensive restaurant. Highly recommend it.

This very small "warung" is always full, and having eaten there now, I can understand why. We had the chicken filet special, extra spicy, and the marlin curry. Each dish is well prepared, beautifully presented, and politely served. The desserts were just fabulous--get the creme caramel with coconut---delicious! If you miss out on a dinner reservation, give it a try... More

Found this one on TA which was nice and close to my accommodation so decided to give it a go. I just walked in off the street to a restaurant full of reserved tables and told by one of the staff that they were full for the night but the owner approached and gave the nod for them to open... More

Finally after 2 years and our 4th visit to Ubud we finally were able to secure a table at the Melting Wok. Booking is essential for evening meals. It was so worth the wait it was the best chicken curry we have had in along time. Freshness and flavour was beautiful. Both meals were served promptly with the wonderful friendly... More

We were lucky and managed to squeeze in without a reservation but you really need to make a reservation 2 days ahead. The chefs specials were wonderful, service was excellent and the food was quite reasonably priced. We will definitely be going back

I came here for lunch with two others. We had the ginger chicken and the Mahi mahi and dessert. The waitress was excellent, very charismatic and thorough. Food came out fast and fresh. However I was expecting a little more 'wow' factor given the reviews. It's a nice meal, great service and staff, but lacked the flavour of some other... More

Do yourself a favour and book a table at the melting wok. The food was awesome and the staff and owner delightful. It gets very busy so a good idea to book. You won't be disappointed.

We discovered this little place through the recommendation of an American expat who lives in Ubud for six months each winter. He told us that the Melting Wok has a couple of specials each day, and that they were reliably delicious. He was right. The place is owned by an interesting couple. He is from Laos, she is from France.... More

What a great little restaurant! The food was delicious, generous servings and well priced. Geraldine and her staff were outstanding in providing prompt and friendly service, and that is what elevated out review from 4 to 5 stars - it was above and beyond. Don't miss out on this gem of Ubud. Will definitely come back next time we visit... More
