“Authentic Turkish Mezze in Bali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

IN May we visited Tulip restaurant in Bali. Don't let the name fool you, tulips are traditionally turkish flowers ( which we did not know) and this restaurant honors traditions of turkish cuisine as well as putting the modern turkish dishes in the spotlight. Really enjoyed the mezze, the wines, the fresh and warm baked bread ( you can see it being baked), the service, the ambiance! Really a jewel on jalan petitinget!!! For Bali the prices are high, compared to a warung, but not higher (even less) than other high end restaurants

“Nice food to share with friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

A friend told us about that place, and that was good for wine and sharing some turkish food.

So we went and give a try. The place wasnt busy, but the restaurant with pounds and open view was really nice.

We sat first at the bar and having some cocktails at the bar while waiting our friend. The waiter asked us if we wanted to have dinner and we explained that we wanted to have a casual gathering with friends with some food for share and easy bites.

They prepare a high tables next to the bar and when everyone arrived we went for wines and several appetizers such as mezze, pizza and other local turkish food that we shared all of us.

Overall it was good just a bite quiet not much ambiance.

“Sorry, I wasn't impressed.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Went here a few months back (and hopefully it has improved) with a large group I was hosting and found the dinner to be somewhat uninspired, awkwardly paced, and fairly overpriced for what you got. Bali is a competitive place and Tulip has a great concept but execution of it can be improved. That said, it's not bad but it's not a five star dining experience either. I'll try them again soon to see if it has improved.

“Turkish delight!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

I had long wanted to try Tulip & decided to head here on a surprise child-free evening this week.
The ambience is lovely, particularly the tables at the rear of the restaurant & the service was outstanding (although the waiter did forget to give us the wine list when we arrived but this was a very minor point).

The food was excellent, delicious dips (the eggplant in particular is very good) & the accompanying bread was soft, fluffy & piping hot. My husband had the sea bass & I had the jumbo prawns for main course and both were fantastic. We were disappointed that the Baclava dessert was unavailable as none of the other desserts appealed or seemed to have a Turkish/Meditteranean flavour.

Overall I would highly recommend this restaurant - it deserves to be a lot busier than it was on the night we visited.

“Unexpectedly fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We were travelling with our two year old and realised it was valentines day. With no booking, we wanted to find somewhere nice that we could go early and be out of everyone's way.
Tulip was recommended to us by an expat, and we thought we'd give it a shot. It didn't look much from the front, and it was fairly quiet, so we weren't really sure what we'd let ourselves in for, but we were pleasantly surprised.
From the moment we walked through the door we were made to feel welcome. We were treated like a happy valentine couple of three, which was incredibly special for us. The menu was another surprise. I can't even remember what we ordered now, but I remember expecting my husband to receive some kind of burrito and for mine to be fairly bland - how wrong I was. Easily the best food we ate during our holiday, all the more for the fact that we didn't have terribly high hopes. Sitting and watching the sun set while eating, the meals all being brought out in good time (no time for the little man to get grumbly), the lovely relaxing ambience and wonderful staff. it all made for an experience I'm eager to repeat next time we're in Bali.
