“Wonderful food. Wonderful Service. Wonderful Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

The starting point for this review would have to be a reference to the service. Faultless throughout, and very helpful.

They staff gave very informed advice about the quantity of food (which can be hard to know when ordering), what foods worked well with each other, plus guidance into other good dishes, all the while checking to ensure how much you liked / could handle spice. Also when ordering drinks etc, they were good about reminding you about water etc.

The food was also amazing. The highlight being the crispy pork belly entree (amazing), and the lemongrass panacotta. The latter being a delightful and refreshing end to a lovely lovely meal.

The other entries were both types of scallops. Unfortunately they brought out the pork belly first, which was so nice, it made the scallops a bit bland in comparison. Still very nice, just would have been nice if the scallops were placed first and then the Pork Belly.

For main, we had Tandoori Butter chicken. Which surprisingly is a little bit spicy (we were warned of this). I like spicy, my wife less so. It was really nice. This was accompanied by the Vietnamese Caramelized Duck. The sauce was lovely, but very over powering, and unfortunately you really couldn't get the taste of the duck in the meal. I loved both, but they also paled in comparison to the Pork Belly (which really is a must have dish).

Overall it was a lovely night. Booking was easy. The seats were lovely, the food wonderful, and the service fantastic, at an amazing price. I will be back.

“Living on it's reputation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

I ate at Sarong 3 years ago and found the food, and service excellent, unfornunately my recent visit wasn't so pleasurable, the food is now very average compared to the competition, one of dishes the crispy duck was inedible as it was tough and chewy,
We were so loking forward to visit Sarong again during our return to Bali but unfortunately we so disappointed, there are now far better restaurants in the area.

“Love this restaurant but...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

not quite as much as the first time I went.

The Atmosphere is amazing and the food equally so but they came with the wrong order for one of our diners.
Being too embarrassed to say anything we didn't realise until the bill came, however the rest of the food was fantastic.
I would like to see a couple more Chicken dishes with gravy - there's only the massala - maybe something with a bit more kick to it?
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE DEEP FRIED BANANA FOR DESSERT!!!
