Small but very solid menu, well presented in a lovely small venue above a bustling alley. Food is local, with a selection of curries and woks. The owner, a lady from France, is absolutely charming. Book a table in advance!

I'm a seasoned traveller, especially around SE Asia and I'd been finding the local Balinese food pretty average at all price points (aside from babi guling, that I bought from a market about 15km north of Ubud on the way back from a day trip to Mt Batur - much better than anything in central Ubud). The Melting Wok is... More

The Melting Wok is a small, tucked away little cafe big on taste. For adults. My husband and I enjoyed the wonderful fusion of fresh seafood cooked in basil and soy sauce, as well as traditional bergedel served with rice. It was spicy (but not too much) and very, very tasty. Sadly, the restaurant had very limited options for kids,... More

I are here four times while staying in Ubud. I simply couldn't find anywhere that was nearly as good in terms of price and quality. Staff were very friendly, while the owner was very nice and accommodating. The coconut curry with chicken is the best option.

Busy, bustling restaurant with competent, friendly staff. No menus, he a chalkboard with maybe 2/3 dishes. The day I was there it was all curry. Menu very well explained by waitress. I imagine the curries are recommend and then amended -spicy, medium or not. I went for a slow cooked pork curry - delicious!! Went for the chocolate crepe but... More

The person who created the dishes is without a doubt very clever and you can find a wide array of items that are simple superb. Staff was very friendly even after our really late arrival (sorry about it guys and... More

We visited on a Wednesday night, and were 10min late for our booking. The hostess was gracious about this, which we were so thankful for considering how busy it is! Even though it is small, it isn't packed to the rafters with people. It is seated sensibly and enough so that it can still be romantic. The dinner menu is... More

Had a lovely lunch here would recommend booking only a few tables. Food and service was first class and great value for money. Make sure you leave room for dessert to die for. Was the best place we ate in Ubud.
