“Great venue, pretty good food.”

Ambience in this place was excellent. Food was a bit up and down, some food amazing, some not great. Well worth a visit though.

“Impressive - have you considered it for lunch?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

I recently had a couple of lunches at Chandi and was really impressed with the quality of the food. Chandi isn’t as pretty during the day as it is in the evening, however its central location makes it very appealing. It’s a good place to stop off for a late lunch after a morning of shopping!

They offer a 2 course lunch menu for 125,000 rupee or you can order from the varied lunch menu – a couple of my favourites included the dumplings, dim sum and vegie stuffed indian bread with vegie chips.

The great thing about lunch is that you can order an entrée or two and enjoy a glass of wine and experience the excellent food at a fraction of the evening dining prices. We felt no pressure to over order.

Chandi has a nice selections of wines which they sell by the glass.

This isn’t a pretentious Seminyak restaurant (despite being high end) they are happy for you to bring the whole family and have a relaxed lunch.

“Another good restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Managed to walk in Saturday night at 7pm, loved the atmosphere big open dining room very tastefully decorated.
The ginger, lemongrass Mojito big thumbs up and I rarely drink alcohol?
There was a full moon set dinner on for 300++ which looked amazing but we went a la carte and had the pork belly which was very good! the surprise was the black rice pudding with coconut ice cream and toasted flakes of ginger with diced mango cheeks, heaven on a stick and bumped Scratch Restaurants desert of the trip into second place!
Coffee as per usual very average.
Great attentive staff, clean restrooms and a good dining experience even though are daughter fell ill whilst we were dining ( long day at waterbom and too much chlorine water me thinks)
Was not a lot on the menu for children I would have to say.

“Wonderful dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We visited Chandi for a friday night dinner and absolutely loved it.

For appetizers we had the lobster and the dim sum, which were both perfect. The grilled lobster was juicy and the soy based sauce had that special twist. The dim sum (sea food, beef) were creative and better than any dim sum I have tried in Europe so far. As main courses we had the Sate Platter (nice dish that comes with 6 sambals but scallops and beef sates alone would have been a better choice) and the grilled black sea food which was everything you want from a fish dish: fresh, juicy, well prepared, lovely combination of flavours in the reduction.

The dessert platter was only average. If you stick to the fondants and/or the homemade ice creams/sorbets you can't go wrong though.

Cocktails are above average but can't keep up with the best bars of Europe/US.

Service was good.

Make a reservation to get one of the "better" tables.

In a nutshell: Great asian fusion cuisine in a lovely ambience. Expect relatively high prices for Bali but a great deal if you're used to European/US/Aussie prices. We'll definitely go again!
