Such a great place in Ubud. We have lunched here the day of our departure and we were upset to no having discovered this warung before. Staff is very welcoming and helpful. Meals were very tasty and the desert (creme caramel with coconut milk) was delicious. Booking in advance is strongly recommended.

We had dinner here twice. Geraldine is the perfect and professional host, her husband is cooking and they have some lovely friendly waitresses. Its the best curry we've ever eaten. Small menu choice but the curry is so fresh and so tasty. A simple concept perfectly executed, and very reasonably priced. Well worth a visit but booking is a must.

They only offer very limited menu, but at the same time the food is very tasty (coconut chicken Curry we had). The place is always crowded, so make a reservation! The service is superb , very friendly! The prices are a little higher though (50-80k for a main course). All in all we enjoyed it, thanks!

Visited a second time (lunch) after failing to get a table the first time (supper). We waited over 15 minutes to get a table. Unfortunately, this place has a very poor table management/reservations system. The place could do with air conditioning or at least a few more fans. The food menu is very narrow albeit the selection changes daily. So... More

A true melting pot of flavours. I enjoyed a table of food that included ginger chicken, chilli basil beef and chicken coconut noodle curry. Plenty of spice on the side, if like me you need it! Service is very good and made to feel very welcome. Would go here again, in a heartbeat, if I was lucky enough to get... More

There's a limited menu but this place is hard to beat. The portion sizes are huge! My wife and I shared a curry which was fresh, flavorsome and less than £5. Not a fancy place but just good local food done well and great for a lunch break.

Their offered menu was not big, in fact it's just 2 sauces, selection of rice or noodles and any meat or tofu/tempe. And two special dishes each day. The service was really good, the food was very fresh and tasted delicious, but it was missing that special "something" to make it truly excellent. But you can have a nice chocolate... More

We went here based on TripAdvisor reviews. It's hard to get into cos it's only small but it's worth it. Small menu on a blackboard but the food is really good. It reminded me of Vietnamese food with lots of fresh herbs and crunch.

This was recommended to us by a friend. It's a restaurant set in the side streets of Ubud and the food was so good. They have a very small menu to choose from. However, the portions are larger and the prices are very reasonable. We had the coconut curry chicken and noodle dishes and we couldn't get enough! -Samantha
