“Value for money but not exceptional”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

The food is of decent local flavor but does not really apply to our palate. We got to sit in a unique hut-like section of the eatery and it was quite cool. I think people who like heavily flavored food would enjoy this place.

“Still good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Food as good as my last visit here in March. Geraldine is a warm and welcoming hostess. The creme caramel is a firm favourite. Glad I was able to return here and the food was still good

“Can't get that fried chicken out of my head”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

Far out, it was so tasty. Ginger fried chicken with lemon grass and papaya salad. I loved it and really wish I had the recipe!
This restaurant is really great and cheap.

“Delicious and inexpensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

We arrived at 6 pm, by 7 it was full. Had the curry with coconut milk--excellent! And the crepe coco was amazing, simple and light. Can't beat the price, too. Service was excellent. Two things to note: there's only about 7 tables and the menu is fairly short. But we would go back any time.

“Yes yes yes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Located in a blessedly quiet side street in downtown ubud, melting wok warung is an absolute gem. Tired, hungry and wilting in the monsoon humidity, my husband and I ducked in here for a quick, cheap bite and were provided with 2 plates of the most satisfying, imaginative curry we've had in a long time. The portions are very generous and the flavours will keep you feeding your face until you have to roll yourself down the street like a stuffed turkey. Geraldine (spelling?) the owner came and chatted to us, very nice lady, made us feel welcome, and the staff are very attentive and professional. The iced tea was also very refreshing and complimented the curries nicely. Amazing value. We will definitely be back!
