10 days here...3 meals at Kayu Manis. It continues to be consistently good. The ambience is great, the staff know their menu, are friendly, welcome back their clients and the food is innovative, fresh and creative. Over the many visits, we have tried just about everything listed on the menu...either personally or amongst friends dining with us. Be it a... More

Lovely food and service. The restaurant is a little 'cold' in its decor, not as 'warm' as it was before it's renovation, pumpkin soup recommended. Bagus the owner and chef is charming and speaks to all his customers.

A trendy restaurant,catering to tourists,this place offers great dishes,with innovative ideas and flavours.Complimentary tiny and artistically presented entrees and sweets was a fine gesture.However the night I was there,I had to send back the duck as it was tough and stringy,but the salmon that came in it's place was perfect. Modern and somewhat sterile interiors,and a separate room for those... More

I don't get why this place is so highly rated. The service was average for Bali standards, The fruit drinks were extremely watery, and the food quite bland. The prices were ok, but it was a regretful decision eating there

We followed the advice on trip advisor and went to Kayu Manis. Following the beautifully presented cocktails we had seafood soup and Asian rolls to start which were nice although quite average. For main we had the gnocchi (not very flavourful) and the butterfish. Overall it was Nice but we have had better in Bali.

Tracked down this place after reading other reviews and so glad we did! Service was outstanding and unobtrusive, little per things like the complimentary taster( which was simply Devine) and the warm bread served with pepper and herb infused cream cheese make it a standout. Quite extensive menu and couldn't fault any of the dishes we had. The risotto that... More

The menu choices are different to many of the options around Sanur. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service was equally as good.

We always eat at Kayu manis once or twice per visit to bali. The quaint modern restaurant delights with little extras that make it my favourite restaurant in bali. Complimentary hors d'œuvre & bread plate are followed by well presented, tasty, culinary dishes. While the menu is not huge, it is well thought out and usually includes a daily specials... More
