This is a small restaurant that is highly popular and reservation is a MUST. Their staff are very friendly and enthusiastic (perhaps too enthusiastic at times). Their menu is limited and simple. Food portions are good and taste is simple and clean (fresh). Though it is supposedly Cambodian food (cook is Cambodian) but I do find the food quite different... More

A pokey little upstairs place but as soon as you arrive you are made to feel welcome, both by the staff and the owner who is a French lady. The food was great, with us both choosing the specials of the day which were local dishes. Next time we come to Ubud we'll be back!

Service excellent - owner v hands on and could see a lot of obvious v happy repeat customers coming in. Book... More

We spent 10 days in Ubud and ate here twice. It really blew all the other food away (and I gave 2 or 3 other restaurant my 5* rating). Small menu, so each dish is carefully thought out and prepared. The French owner is lovely. The menu items are creative and distinctive but keep a real Asian/Balinese character. Not the... More

Menu is not big, but the selection is excellent. Delicious food, fantastic deserts. Hospitable atmosphere and good service - feel like very welcome guests. One of our best gastronomic experiences in Bali.

What a delightful find! Specialising in curries and personalised service, Melting Wok ticks all of the boxes. Geraldine is gracious and runs the front of house beautifully. The quality of the food is guaranteed by a tight menu and high turnover from a loyal base. We ate there several times for lunch and dinner (booking for dinner is a must)... More

Service was excellent from greeting us as we walked up the stairs to bidding us farewell. Specials were explained as well as main menu which were both on blackboards. To drink we shared a large bali hai beer (33k) I ordered the marlin in curry & coconut milk with rice - medium (39k) spice and my partner ordered chicken in... More

Having failed to get in the previous night we managed to get a table the night after. All the staff were extremely friendly and looked happy to be there. The food choices are limited so if you are fussy you may not have enough choice. I had the coconut milk beef curry which was great and a nice change to... More

Friends strongly advised to eat here and it was definately worth it. Limited choice, but all great dishes. Friendly staff and the French owner. By far best value for money meal we had on Bali. Don't forget to make a reservation.
