I am not used to having Vegan Cheese although in my life before becoming Vegan I loved Cheese. The last thing I wanted to do was to give up Cheese because it was just so nice to have. However with the poor treatment of Cows...and how they process the milk for the cheese it was time to take the challenge and activate the willpower to just say No to cheese from cows. I was very surprised to get such a cheese flavor and texture from Sayuri's Vegan Cheese plater. I was happy to see that they also have so many flavors and takeaway section in the refrigerator of the Cafe. Next time you are at Sayuri's Cafe do try the Vegan Cheese Plate you will Love it.More

Bizarre experience. So I ask for an ice tea. The staff come with a small glass with no ice. I ask for ice and if I can have a larger glass. The waitress says they have no larger glasses so I agree. But then behind...the counter I see a hole bench of taller glasses. Puzzled, I go to ask the other staff if they can use one of those taller glasses and they say no because it’s not for use with tea. I said please as they cafe is basically empty. Again they said no. I just don’t get it. The prices are high. The food is nutritious but average tasting. The staff are rigid and in this case it wasn’t just no but a cold no.More

most terrible food in Ubud. I took a nurish bowl and it was full up with incongruous tastes and products. coconut kefir was quite alcoholic.

The food and drinks are great, and the "store" also has a lot of good stuff to offer. The staff is very kind and friendly, as far as you are also nice and respectful. Regarding the atmosphere, well, I agree that there's a lot of...pretentiousness from the clientele as I've never seen in my life. You see a whole spectrum of spiritual loving egos strolling around, from the poor barefoot shirtless one that just came out from the trash bin to the yoga style one full of adornments and painted spiritual symbols all over the body. But to be honest, sarcasm aside, I REALLY enjoy the show! I do think though, that the staff is a bit saturated with this whole yoga spiritual hippie wannabe aimlessly wandering and sometimes can give the impression of being unsympathetic as I've read in some reviews, which I find totally understandable given the circus show they have to bear. Apart from this the only thing I'd add is that I wish there would be more available tables for people to actually eat and drink rather than to accommodate others only for using their laptops, chilling, meditating, playing guitar and group hugging, because it's Sayuri Healing Food and not Sayuri: Healing Hugs. Anyway, a great place to eat and learn! And to finish with something I've read at the door: "Shoes are welcome"More

The service here is remarkably bad. I understand that service is different in SE Asia, and I'm far from picky, but you have to constantly be tracking someone down to get anything here (even a menu!). Servers are extremely inattentive and even seem to try...to evade your gaze as they walk by. This made for a pretty lame dining experience. That said, food is okay. The raw pad Thai was pretty great, tempeh burger was dry and the spirulina bun makes for an odd taste. Raw key lime pie was warm and melty. The atmosphere was interesting and bustling and they had live music which was cool, but the poor service and mediocre food wouldn't bring me back. There are too many other amazing restaurants in Ubud to prioritize this one.More

This place was totally packed when we arrived. It was really hard to find out if bit was ordered at the counter or at the table. We ended up grabbing the menus from behind the bar and then going to counter to order as it...seemed it was the best way to get anything done. It was clear the place was way understaffed for that situation. I ordered the Norwegian style gravlax. Coming from the Nordics, I know this dish didn't have anything to do with the name but it was quite tasty despite it. For the food I'd go back. As it started to calm down, I asked the staff when they were closing. It was still 45 min to closing and asked if I could still get a tea. I got a hard no as a response. I totally understand if food wasn't being prepared at that time anymore, but 45 min to closing and a tea is impossible to serve anymore and the way the staff delivered the answer.. Well let's say if this was in the western world... But we are in Bali. Still that particular service moment left a bad taste of the overall experience. So even though I didn't mind the understaffing situation, the chaos, or anything else, I felt that last moment it was more lack of willingness and rudeness than policy that dictated the situation and now that's now the brand image of Sayuri for me. The same attitude was followed upon payment.More

First impression- I've stepped into a 70s hippy commune. The reason I was there is because I am allergic to gluten, eggs, and dairy. So, I look for gluten free restaurants to check out. I've also dabbled in raw food diet a bit because it...can be gluten-free friendly. However, this place's interpretation of healthy eating is so pretentious. Let me give some examples of the cliental we saw while we were there: a lady in a flowy dress twirling to the trans music while ordering a smoothie, a hippy dude with huge headphone half on saying namaste and bowing every time the waitress brings something to him....need I say more? Everyone in there was "trying" to play this role of cool hippy hemp loving persona. Healthy eating is NOT that. So, putting all that aside, the food was meh. I got the macha pancake and my husband got the waffle with cream. His waffle was only half of a waffle and rubbery. The waffles I make at home is much better than that. The "cream" is just a giant scoop of straight up coconut cream whipped and if you've ever had that before you know how unappealing that is. It also came with a scoop of vanilla ice cream that is borderline gag worthy. The saving grace, my pancake was actually good and so was my "Estatic" smoothie. So, 50/50. Pretty hefty price tag for a 50/50 chance of getting something tasty. Overall, healthy food are abound in Ubud, that are not pretentious and over-priced, I recommend finding another place for healthy eating. Side note: The no shoes policy is pretty gross. Again, hippy persona, not sure how often they take showers.More
