Simple but delicious and great value

Ruby's has a simple menu, but everything we tried was delicious - and home made. Most recommended are the calamari fritti - the best we tried on the island - and the chicken "ayam bakar", which our 6 year old ranked as "the best chicken" she ever tasted!

Quality traditional food cooked to the highest standards. Everything was seasoned perfectly. The chicken in the Nasi Campur and Indian curry was very succulent. The spring rolls and calamari was also very good. The best traditional food we have sampled on our entire trip. Charming place and run by a great couple. Find the restaurant down the side street just... More

There is an instant feeling of warmth and welcome as you enter the little paradise that is being created by Ruby and Jeremy, known Ruby's Cafe or Gili Warung. Ruby’s culinary passion is evident in every dish she creates and delivers to her customers. There is a combination of western and local items on the menu and Ruby is more... More

My first visit to Gilli Air. Walking to my accommodation and smelled the most aromatic smells coming from this Warung I was passing. Couldn't resist and went in for brunch. Simple menu of western and Indonesian food. But the aroma was from an Indian curry sauce. Sat down and met Jeremy whose wife Ruby does the cooking. They have just... More

A hidden gem on Gili Air, and one of the best warungs I've experienced during my travels in Indonesia. Ruby and Jeremy are extremely friendly people, always in for a chat, and they do everything to make you feel at home. The food was just so delicious, fresh and authentic (eventually made me come back three times a day), and... More

You must try Ruby's (formerly Warung Gili) if you are looking for the best authentic Indonesian food on Gili Air. Its located just east of the 'crossroads' near Scallywags resort. We are here every day for the four days on the island, sometimes twice a day! I highly recommend their Nasi Campur, which is a daily roundup of the preparations:... More

During our 12 gili a trip we just kept coming here time after another because the food is simply put amazing. Chicken satay, nasi campur were so good I had hard time not licking my plate. We also tried the eggs benedict which felt like a risky move but was stunning. Ruby really knows her stuff in the kitchen, determined... More

Track this simple, friendly place down and you'll be rewarded with fresh, flavoursome local food prepared by Ruby who really knows her stuff. The campur, chicken and satay were all great and excellent value.
