Lovely place

Even coming out for dinner early the restaurant was almost full. Not really a surprise given that the restaurant is tiny and the food here is so good. I had tempe with vegetables in Putu's special sauce and my boyfriend went for the chicken curry. Both dishes were delicious and we had just about... read more

Even coming out for dinner early the restaurant was almost full. Not really a surprise given that the restaurant is tiny and the food here is so good. I had tempe with vegetables in Putu's special sauce and my boyfriend went for the chicken curry. Both dishes were delicious and we had just about enough room to share a dessert.

After a few bad duck experiences in Bali (dry/tough) our group was a little reluctant to chance it by ordering the duck again. But we are so glad we did! Tender, fall apart meat with lovely flavours. Wild Ginger is a tiny little place just a couple of minutes walk from the main town centre, and is well worth a... More

This was my first time here and every dish was soo good. It is a little more expensive than a local warung, but worth it! Putu and her husband are so genuinely nice and welcoming, if was a pleasure to meet them. Definitely would try the duck next time I visit!

This lovely little local warung made for the perfect final night meal in Bali - beautiful simple food in a homey environment. The service was excellent and we all left happily full, but sad to leave!

Had a seriously delicious smoked duck dinner at this place. You reserve it 24 hours in advance and the meal comes with rice, satay, salad and several other sides for a set price. The duck is smoked to perfection and the sides are wonderful as well. I walked out with that feeling of having eaten a great homecooked meal (something... More

Wild Ginger is located a bit outside of the center of Ubud, but so worth going there. The owners were really welcoming and friendly. The food was freshly prepared and DELICIOUS. Especially the "tempe with tomato sauce"!! I can really recommend going there and enjoying a tasty meal in a relaxing atmosphere. Come early, as the restaurant only has a... More
