Went for dinner on second last night in Ubud. Had the chicken avocado salad, mei goreng and nasi campur. All excellent. Easily among the best we have eaten in the last 2 weeks.

Warmly welcomed from this lovely woman and her husband. We pre ordered the duck for 2- which was great! Hard to finish cause it was so much different to eat. It's a small location Ina sidestreet which is nice-don't have the scooter noises. Lovely place with heart!

Local Indonesian Food prepared in a really nice way. Service from the owning family was really friendly + it's a cozy place away from the tourist buzz. Mains 40-50K. Nothing to go wrong with. But only 4 dishes as mains plus the whole duck which you have to preorder one day in advance so we found the menu a bit... More

The place was so neat and cute. Putu is the name of the lady who is chef of this restaurant. I like her cuisine, avocado Salad, nasi campur, nasi goreng. She made her own sauce and dressing. And I love the rice wine. We didn't have duck cuisine , if you want to have it, must have reservation 1 day... More

Little hard to find because we drove by the place at first following Tripadvisors map but soon after found Putu's Wild Ginger. The menu isn't all that large but she has some excellent choices on there. I went for the Soto with pork as a starter and I really enjoyed it. I tried the Guacamole too which was a perfect... More

We had a very nice evening at the Wild Ginger. Since they had good recommendations for the duck dinner, I made a reservation for this one day ahead (easily by email). The place is not in the main road and less touristy. The whole family is involved. We had a really nice dinner. My friend whose food was swollen got... More

This is truly a home run business by a very lovely old couple. It's a team effort. Whilst Putu was cooking her husband would bring the ready food to the tables. The food tasted home made and very tasty. The soup and nachos were my favourite but the rice dishes are also very delicious. Very clean place and very reasonably... More
