“Food was amazing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

We went here after seeing the reviews on trip advisor and it met all our expectations. For $9 for three of us including drinks it was one of the best meals I have had in Indonesia. We had Urap Urap and Chicken Satays. So friendly and everything was cooked from scratch while we waited.

“Little Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

This is a delicious local eatery inland from the touristy places on the beach. We ate there three times during a five day stay. The food was tasty and authentic and the price can't be beat. The food was fresh, plentiful and yummy. We had nasi goreng, mie goreng, gado gado and satay among a few other choices during our meals there. Each thing was worth every bite and I strongly recommend the five minute walk from the beach in order to eat at this gem on the island.

“must have been an off day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Authentic warung round the back of the scallywag mango retreat. We have been meaning to eat here all week as it gets rave reviews on here...we finally got there today and I hate to say left feeling disappointed. Having eaten mie and nasi goreng pretty solidly for two weeks I had high hopes on both dishes topping the chart at number one, unfortunately both were oily and bland tasting. The place across the street (warung kampung) was miles better. Maybe we caught warung gili on an off day as we didn't find it to be a particularly friendly place either.Shame

“Great food in the village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We tried Warung Gili based on the good reviews on Tripadvisor on our last night at Gili Air, and were disappointed that we didn't check out Tripadvisor earlier, we would have eaten there every night! Really delicious Indonesian food, and very cheap.

“Best Indonesian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We visited Gili Air in early May and went to try Warung Gili because of the good reviews on Tripadvisor. Food was excellent, far the best we ever had anywhere in Indonesia. Owner lady is clearly putting all her heart and mind in preparing the food. It was absolutely delicious and on top of that also very affordable. It is really worth making the effort to walk the 5 minutes out from the beach to eat at Warung Gili. If you like you can also try the Warung opposite, their food is also very good and far better than in the beach restaurants, but not fully in class with Warung Gili.
