“Great place for a beautiful meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

A lovely restaurant with good food to match. We made a reservation, and were seated promptly. The atmosphere is simply beautiful- traditional Balinese with modern twists. It's a great spot for a romantic meal, but don't expect adults only (young kids were seated on either side of our table).

The menu is large and diverse, with plenty of seafood, meat and vegetarian options available. A great cocktail list pairs well with with the cuisine. Standouts were the entrees- we weren't blown away with the appetizers, but they were okay (slipper lobster, meh, and sate, good but not wowed). My husband had a steak and thought it was delicious; I had the miso black bass and found it fantastic.

Dinner for two including two appetizers, two entrees, four or six cocktails, and tip was about $90. Very reasonable given the caliber of cuisine.

The restaurant is in a great part of town, within walking distance of plenty of bars for a nightcap.

“Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We dined here on the last night of our 15 day trip. Ordered the mixed platter to start, it was delicious. Our mains were a bit hit and miss, but we would definitely try Chandi again, as the food quality and service were excellent. They don't have any kids meals unfortunately, but great cocktails!

Excellent service, great menu and the food was excellent. Awesome cocktails too. Favourite place in seminyak during my first trip, was here 9 days so tried quite a few places but this was superb.

“Great venue, pretty good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

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.
