Putu's Wild Ginger is a gem just off the main road in Ubud. I would suggest booking them by calling them because the place only opens for dinner and gets packed very quickly as there are only 5-6 tables available. While this intimate setting means you will see potential guests being turned away, the food is astounding. Putu's Nasi Campur... More

The food was really great! I went twice, once with a friend and the second time with my boyfriend. We all really loved the putu's special sauce dish, it's starred on the menu as a recommended dish. The staff was also very nice. Great experience for trying local food

Fantastic food, friendly staff, amazing prices, a must for anyone who is staying in Ubud near the Main St. Take note that it is closed on Saturdays and make sure you book in advance as it's a quite popular and walks ins may be out of luck to get a table! Lovely story to this place too ;)

Ate here after reading excellent reviews and it didn't disappoint! It is a small, quaint family run restaurant. We both had the nasi goreng and it was super tasty! It's definitely worth a visit!

I went for dinner two friends, we booked an hour in advance and were squeezed in. Great tasting food, quick service and a very intimate and homely atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this place and would go back in a heartbeat!

Wild Ginger is a must visit if you're in Ubud. There is so much love in this little warung, both in the food that they serve and also in Putu and Nyoman's smiles. The Kecap Goreng is particularly excellent; I think Putu makes the best tempeh in Bali!
