“Jap fix in Ubud”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

A cosy Japanese restaurant that will bring a smile to your face once you try their food. The first impression I had when I stepped into Minami is quality and service. Everything from staff service to food plating did not disappoint. Minami takes good care to present their food beautifully and the food quality and taste is top notch. My friends tried their lunch set and they left with a big smile and a big belly. Definitely a hearty lunch set at a reasonable price. As a vegetarian, I had less options but I highly recommend the warm minami noodle. It's a thin udon that is served with a special dipping sauce, nothing similar in Singapore. Must try!

“Not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

I was recommended this place by some friends. I have to say it was not bad. Service was good, place is beautiful, but the food for me was average.

“what happened??!?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

this place used to be fantastic. We went back after two years and were completely dissapointed by its low quality. The menu is the same but it was not the same. Pork was fatty, tuna tasteless, desserts with no flavour, no coffee, portions ridiculously small and overpriced. The place is beautiful still but the waiter told us owner changed....maybe this explains the poor service and food. The place was empty, last time it was always full.

I will not return, a pity since it was a highlight for us in Ubud.

“Great Japanese food in Ubud”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

We had lunch at Minami - it is located a few steps from the famous Naughty Nuri restaurant. We were shown a table that faces an internal garden - peaceful and quiet. We were given the alacarte menu, but asked for the set lunch menu instead. The set lunch cost Rp300K each, but was well worth it. Lunch started with a small cup of plum liquor, followed by a 6-course dish - starters, soup, 2 appetisers, main and dessert. Each was lovingly presented. Pace was casual, unhurried and friendly. Not exaclty cheap - but you get what you pay for.

Overall, great experience. Will surely come back again when I visit Ubud.

“Truly great Japanese food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014 via mobile

We made our way back to Minami for the second time in two years. We actually had the restaurant to ourselves for the first hour or so. The menu is easy to understand, and includes 3 potential fixed menus. We decided to order a la carte. The sizzling prawns & the agadashi tofu were a great start. We then had a beef hot pot washed down by a couple of lovely cocktails and then two small bottles of saki. Great feed and you weren't over-full at the end of the meal. The staff were attentive and friendly throughout. Might just slip back there for an extra dinner before going home!!
