My wife and I ate here twice while in Ubud and it was incredible both times. We can highly recommend the coconut milk curry with noodles and the curry with veggies! Best curry I've ever had anywhere! The owner and the staff are very friendly and helpful as well too! Highly recommended!!!

You have to book in advance. During our visit we saw 15-20 couples tureen away within the space of 75minutes. It's popular and rightly so. Decent portion sizes, small menu (good thing in my book), friendly staff.

We read about this place on trip advisor and the first time we walked by there was a queue of people waiting for a table. We went back the next day for an early dinner (around 4.30pm) and got a seat with street view no problem. They have a small menu but that's all you need - they explain everything... More

We came here because of the reviews and the truth is that the reviews are mostly right: you do definitely need reservations, as the place is very popular; the menu is limited; the host and waiters are very friendly, albeit encouraging you to leave subtly; Overall it was a good place to grab a quick bite and the portion size...

Lovely simple menu that changes regularly. Limited choice but the food is fresh, local and full of flavour. We tried to walk up but it was fully booked, so made a reservation for the following night. Good value. Definitely recommended while in Ubud

After reading good reviews and recommendations to book, I tried to make a dinner reservation. However, as I am travelling alone they would only offer me a 5-5.30pm or 9pm booking. Never experienced this anywhere else. Very rude!

This warung is run very well, there are limited meal choices and you really need to book. The food comes out really quick and is fresh and tasty. The French owner/manager? Is very nice and makes sure you have good service and good food. It's a little in and out for our liking but I can understand that this works... More

Excellent food, good portion size, it was tasty & once again the customary Balinese hospitality not lacking. Would recommend trying it for a meal.

As stated in the heading, this is a well oiled business but not a great dining experience. The food is fine and the proprietor is a delight, she is also a very astute business woman. My review is about the experience and not just the food. Melting Wok is often booked-out and you may have to book a day ahead... More

We had a couple of failed attempts at reserving a table at Melting Wok because they are so popular and always seemed to be fully booked, but we're glad that we stuck with it. We enjoyed an excellent meal, and the prices were very reasonable - I think we paid about 20-30 AUD for two curries, one dessert and a... More
