Description: Putu's Wild Ginger is built out of love. Love that Putu and her husband, Nyoman, want to share with you. If you're coming through Ubud, swing by for the best home-cooked meal on the island. Reservations strongly recommended. Please give 24 hours notice if you'd like to try Putu's famous smoked duck feast.

“Lovely food, lovely owners - a real delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Stumbled on Putu's when scouring trip adviser for something small and locally owned. The food (especially the Tempe) was outstanding - fresh and tasty. The owners were so genuine and welcoming and the fact it was just a small place with 5 tables up a quiet alley off the main street made it really nice and relaxing. We booked a babysitter for the following night and headed back for the smoked duck which was spectacular. We will certainly be back!

“An unexpected treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

We found this warung by a recommendation from another traveller. My friend and I had a bit of difficulty finding it as is off the main drag, but well worth it. The menu is authentic Balinese fare, and very tasty. Nioman and Putu are just lovely hosts, we will be back.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

It's a slight walk away from the Main Street but was definitely worth it. A cute little restaurant and friendly staff. A basic menu with Indonesian cuisine. The meal was up there with the best I've had in Bali! Would recommend it to others and wish we were staying longer to return!!

“Friendly service and excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Had a lovely meal - can only recommend people going to this wonderful family-run place. A little hidden from the main road - but a hidden jewel!
