“Most amazing restaurant experience in Bali!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Absolutely fantastic! Great atmosphere, deco, entertainment and most of all, AMAZING FOOD!!

We initially turned up and was told there wasn't a table free until 9pm, advise everyone to book in advance to save disappointment. We were happy to come back and thank goodness we were otherwise we would have missed out big time!!

We opted for the meat set menu (other choice was fish and vegetarian) and it came out on a huge platter. We asked for it not to be too spicy and they delivered on that request. All the dishes were tasty but there were four standout winners for us, the soy sauce pork, braised beef, sate and the lamb stew.

The restaurant staff were attentive and warm. The cultural dance was an added bonus.

The restaurant offer cooking classes which I will be definitely participating in on my next visit, in the meantime I will practice the dishes from the cookbook I was able to purchase there.

A must do for all visitors to Nusa Dua or, in fact, Bali.

“Fabulous is all respects”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We had a meal there as it was recommended. We would've returned, but it was very expensive and especially with our poor exchange rate. However, the setting is great, the welcome is excellent and the service is excellent. They are so professional and the food was beautifully presented. We shared a duck salad starter which was delicious, but we shouldn't have had a starter as the main course was huge. I would've liked to return, but it was very expensive for us. I highly recommend the restaurant.

“Very expensive.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

The Bumbu Bali was recommended as a taste of authentic bali.
First impressions were very good. Told we had to book days in advance, we managed to get in the same evening.
The atmosphere was very good and staff very attentive.
The entertainment was a cultural dance in national costume, with a photo opportunity afterwards.
The food is plentiful and presented well on a central platter.
But the quality was appalling; lots of bone and gristle.
We ate very little. The food was expensive. We did not try this one a second time.
