This is truely an upmarket Teppanyaki, as good as any in Japan. Feels quite strange being in Bali eating here but it is a must try. Ate with family and the watched the Chef's Flying Knife display.

The food was OK, but the "show" was not as good as I have seen at many other Japanese grill-type restaurants. And it's very expensive, especially when you add the tax and mandatory service charge. I wouldn't recommend it if you weren't staying at the Intercontinental, and probably not even if you were staying there.

Service and facilities were first class. Ambiance was also good, as was the food. We always eat here at least once every time we stay at the Intercontinental Hotel. Prices not cheap.

Wait staff were attentive and very friendly, and specials were amazing - taste refined, un-rushed, and exquisite. Didn't expect to find such delicate Japanese-style tuna caparccio on Bali, even less in as established a hotel as the Intercontinental (noveau cliche in Bali is to eat out in the "new wave" of independent restaurants). Surprisingly good value for money - kids... More

KO is a really nice restaurant within the Intercontinental resort. We went on a Thursday night when they offered an all you can eat sushi menu. The sushi was very good and it turned about to be good value considering how much we ate and drank! We're only in Bali for another week but we may go back for more.

We had a wonderful evening at the KO restaurant while staying at Intercontinental. Excellent setting of the restaurant within a Japanese Garden. The food was amazing and the cook did a nice "show". It is really recommendable to go there!

We thoroughly enjoy our meal at KO. From walking through the Japanese gardens, to the friendly service and fresh beautiful food we just loved this restaurant. My only warning would be the cost of wine at AUD $20 per glass. If you stick to water this is actually a very reasonably priced restaurant for a 5-star hotel.
