“Sorry, Aladin Cafe is gone”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

Yuli, the owner decided to sell. The new owners have changed the name to Warung Kwek Kwek. They're definitely not as friendly as Yuli. The menu is very different. The food quality is similar, but not quite as good as before. Michael is now working at RIB steak restaurant, down the street.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

I have always been a huge fan of this restaurant and always made it our first port of call for dinner on our arrival. We were extremely excited to be going back and seeing Michael and Yuli again. What a shock to learn that it had been sold and the new owners were now running it. We ordered the crumbed mushrooms same as always, but guess what? It has lost something, whether it is the carisma of Michael that is missing I dont know, the young waitresses were still as friendly but I am sorry to say we did not go back on our last night as we have done for the past five years, and dont really intend to go back on our next visit.

“Here you feel very welcome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

The owner is a very kind Balinese. The Rijsttafel is very reasonably priced and good. I already went here three times and each time I was satisfied.

“Good Food & Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

This little restaurant has always proven to be a pleasant surprise.

While it looks a little tired and in need of a refurbishment, the staff are tireless in their efforts to please and the food is always plentiful and tasty.

Michael, the manager, is always on hand and only too happy to assist you with orders and any special needs.

Don't be put off by the décor, you will end up with a great meal and enjoy the outstanding service.
