We visited after our visit to Neka Museum with our 3 boys in tow. Service was great. A beautiful apperitif and great service. We love our Japanese food and have had some really high level food before. This is not high level Japanese but it is very smart food and we and our boys really enjoyed it. The building is... More

This Japanese restaurant was recommended to us by a friend and it definitely lived up to its expectations! Definitely one of the best dinners we have had in Ubud and service to match!

My last review of Minami was 2011 but I have been back four times since then. Though Ubud may have lost its quiet ambience, up the hill on JL Raya Sanggingan this Japanese Restaurant still offers a retreat from the 21st centuries madness. It is quiet, the music is unobtrusive and the food is always a delight to your senses.... More

Have visited here several times over more than ten years. It has changed ownership at least twice in that time but never fails to please. This is an upmarket restaurant in Ubud terms but is perfect for that special meal. The setting is beautiful in a quiet open garden, service is spot on and the food always great quality with... More

It is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL restaurant. We stopped in for lunch. It was pricey, but everything was really good. You definitely felt the authenticity.

First of all, sushi in Ubud is generally nothing to write home about. That being said, Minami is still, in my opinion, one of the best places in town for sushi. Good thing about the place is that it also offers other Japanese dishes, like miso soup and excellent Japanese powder green tea. Tuna steak was also pretty good. Service... More

I spent $40 for one person for a set menu meal and 2 Ginger teas, which is pretty pricey. It's a beautiful space and I absolutely loved it but there's room for improvement. It really should be full and buzzing. The Ponzo dressing and steamed veg dressing was amazing. The fish was cooked to perfection! But the dishes lacked substance... More

We had a nice meal and each order was tasty. But the bbq could have had a little more imagination. Bit simple compared to others we have had, ie could have a coal fuelled bbq for the atmosphere

We chose this pretty Japanese restaurant for our New Years Eve dinner (family of 4) and it exceeded our expectations. My husband and I had set meals of several courses and the kids ordered from the menu. everyone was very, very happy with the food and the presentations on an endless parade of little plates, dishes, pieces of wood, stone,...
