“Hurry! Make a reservation now!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

One of the must places to go in Ubud. I usually book a reservation a day ahead. Amier is a dear and sweet and such a character. Fun to see him turn people away too. ;)

The reservation thing came about because other people are complaining it is taking so long. Amier is a one man show. He does EVERYTHING. People are made to understand this so I dont know why the complaints? Good food, like wine, takes time. ;)

As for some of the people complaining about being hurried, the only time I saw this happened was when Amier accommodated a request of a customer who did not have a reservation. She was told tho that the table is reserved for 6pm (there are only 2 tables here). And of course when the hour was near, she felt she was being shown the door. Oh boy.

So now it is strictly for reservations. But it is worth it. The food is really good and good value for money. Try everything!

“A fun experience in the heart of Ubud”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

I've lived in Ubud for a long time. Warung Saya is probably the first place I went to when I arrived and I consider that to be fortuitous! Be aware that this Warung is strictly reservation only so walk past during the day and make a booking. The best thing you can do is talk to the owner. A super interesting guy! Also a treasure trove of information on Ubud. The food is cooked lovingly and is cheap. The meals are filling and I have no hesitation in recommending warung saya to expats and visitors alike!

“Best Meal We Had in Bali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

It was not too difficult to make reservations at Warung Saya through our hotel staff, and I'm very happy I made the effort to do so. My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our exquisite meals; I got a basil & coconut chicken curry, and he got the Nasi Goreng, a traditional Balinese rice dish of mixed vegetables and chicken. The owner mentioned that he had recently downsized his menu to only his favorite dishes, but you can always check the menu ahead of time to make sure there's something you'll enjoy. We didn't wait as long as some other reviewers, but we did have a later reservation (8:30pm), so maybe that helped. Definitely worth planning ahead for!
