We had been to Bumbu Bali several times during previous visits to Bali so were keen to go back as we had very fond memories of the meals we had eaten there in the past. We arrived at the restaurant only to find that they were full and no table were available but they phoned Bumbu Bali II which is just up the road where they were tables available and arranged transport for us, which was great. The new restaurant doesn't quite have the charm of the original but it is beautiful all the same and is very Balinese. The staff are delightful at both restaurants, friendly, efficient and obviously wanting to please.
We ordered a couple of dishes, a duck salad with duck satay and a delicious fried tofu dish. Each dish comes with a variety of side dishes and condiments which are all beautifully presented on a huge wooden tray decorated with bright red chilis. The food, as always, was absolutely delicious! It is reassuring to know that there is at least one restaurant in Bali where the quality of food never changes and where guests are guaranteed of a memorable meal. Bumbu Bali is an exceptional restaurant and should figure at the top of anyone's lists of restaurants to visit during a stay in southern Bali.
