Our menu has been designed with sharing in mind as we believe food tastes best this way. We recommend ordering several dishes to share, take the time to graze, savor the experience.Beverage: “When in Bali!”A list of creative, locally inspired cocktails (alcoholic and non), and a variety of Asian beers are on offer as both a refresher and an accompaniment to the food.A small and surprisingly varied wine list keeps things interesting for wine connoisseur.And a fresh tropical juice menu completes the enticing selection.Our core objective is to support and encourage our staff and as many local business as possible.

“Don't miss this delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We had read and heard so many good reports on Ginger Moon , it was had to believe it could be that good...but it surely is ! Greetings and service by very attentive staff was professional and a pleasure to receive. The selection of food on the menu and its presentation is possibly unique on the Bali scene or at least done in a style that sets it apart from others. With seven people to feed, we selected a variety of styles (tapas type meals), including the Spring Rolls (chicken curry)..Babi Guling 1/2 Moon steamed buns...Pork&Prawn dumplings...steamed Baramundi...Nasi Goreng and Beef Rendang Pizza(who'da thought!!!). The timing of meals service was impeccable and the taste variety was a delight. They also have a fantastic trio of Creme Brûlée (Pandan/Ginger Mango/Black Sesame) and once they got the temperature right , on the Chocolate/Caramel Volcano, it too was a winner. Great food, great people and great service make for a very enjoyable evening in Bali.

Dear Steve B,

It was a pleasure having you and your friends dine at Ginger Moon, sorry about the hick-up with the volcano, I am glad you enjoyed it in the end, something to warm your hands over was quite an amusing comment and fitting since you ordered a volcano!

Thank you for leaving your in-depth comments for all to read, I am very happy to see people embracing our concept, sharing food and enjoying themselves, the old adage s true “good food is best enjoyed in great company”.

We all hope to have the opportunity of welcoming you back again.

With kind regards

Dean and the team at Ginger Moon.

“My new Favourite place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Ginger Moon truly stands out as the menu is large enough to have a good choice, but not overwhelming. the fresh tasty asian meals are served beutifully, and are very generously sized. The Juices and cocktail list are also amazing, and I dont think I could fauilt a thing there.
The dessertis also great, the trio of creme brulee was the best dessert Ive had in Bali. The food is well priced compared to a lot of places in Seminyak, and the added allergy information on the menu was a great addition.
Cant wait to go back!

“Tapas at its best in Seminyak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We were recommended to Gingermoon from our villa manager and it sure didnt disappoint. We had the best sweetcorn fritters I've ever had, dumplings, duck pancakes and finished off with asian pizza. There were 4 of us, one being a chef and we were so delighted to have found this little treasure.
You have to book so dont miss out on this great food and plated up and served to delight your senses.

“Yep good.. could improve with little effort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Nice food, not cheap but we don't mind this and enjoyed the quality. Only things to watch - very average dumplings and credit card machine failed alot so i had walk the street for cash. I dont expect this in a joint like this. Nice place and setting.

Dear Deancob,

Thank you for dinning at Ginger Moon and for the comments you have left on TA, your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Sorry about the CC machine, the problem we have is the electricity fluxuates a lot in Bali; it is all ways up and down, and often not enough or none. We have a generator that automatically kicks in once the flow drops below a certain rate, this chopping and changing plays havoc with anything electronic, even the PC’s in the office struggle to keep up some days. We are already aware of the issue and have found a solution, we are currently waiting on the bank to deliver us machines that work via satellite, these machines don’t need PDX cabling so aren’t affected by the unstable flow of electricity.

I am worried about your dumpling comment; there are many fans of our dumplings out there; that said it is possible someone in the kitchen made a mistake during your visit. If you don’t mind please send me a quick email and let me know what dumpling didn’t live up to your expectations? dean@gingermoonbali.com

With kind regards

Dean and the Ginger Moon team
