“Good cheap food, saw a rat ... But they're renovating!”
The nasi campur and nasi goreng are so delicious! The second time I had gado gado which wasn't that great, but healthy. This place is probably the cheapest for its type (tourist friendly, nice ambience), so it's good value. I'd go there for the rp 15k coconut too!
The second time we went we saw a huge rat running on the floor, which put us off a little. We laughed it off resigning ourselves to the fact that we probably will get a stomach ache later.. Oh well, it's Indonesia after all.
The nice waitress told us that the place is being closed for half a week for a renovation and a clean up, which I assume would fix the rat problem.

Thank you for your visit to Gula Bali,
Report response as inappropriate
we are sorry for your inconvenience
we have identified the source of your 'surprise encounter' is from our 'semi-abandoned' neighbour's bungalows and nearby ricefields
please rest assured that there are no health hazzard possibilities from this problem as we are applying good hygiene policy in our food & beverage production areas, and we are regularly checked by a professional hygiene and pest controller
however, we will include our neighbour's property and neighbour's backyard in our upcoming clean-up & renovation schedule to make sure it will not develop into a serious problem (since they apparently don't do that), and will figure out a way for them to be completely unable to enter our premises
To be precise and be thoroughly informative, there were some ricefield mice that got lost and went through our premises. Not a big rat, since there are no big rats in Bali (like in a Hollywood-movie sewer system, or roaming freely in Jakarta)
thank you for your valuable input, we really appreciate it
if you're in Ubud on February 10th, we'll have a refresh party starting at 7pm, please join us for some live music and cool cocktails
