The venue and the instruction was professional and culturally enriching. The experience challenged all our senses: outstanding views of Mount Agung, exquisite smells from the market, scintillating tastes of Bali's spices, a connectedness with the land through the feel of preparing food with our hands and a spiritual calmness through the making of offerings and prayer.

We only went for lunch. It's well worth it even thoughit is probably the costliest nasi campur in Bali. Marvellous view of rice paddies, good service, great welcome drinks and nibbles on arrival. And a glass of cold Australian Chardonnay if you are interested. Hats off to the Australian woman doing authentic indonesian with style.

This restaurant was one of my highlights of my 2 week stay in Bali. The view was absolutely amazing and the authentic Balinese food was delightful. The owner, Penny was an absolute joy to deal with and an inspiration to my 2 teenage daughters with her life story. Next time I go to this restaurant and I am going to... More

We went to experience authentic Balinese cuisine and were not disappointed. The range is limited but you have to be prepared to follow the lead given - we'd recommend the more extensive of the two set menus, cost 220k rupiah for the full experience. Allow yourself to be immersed in the culture and enjoy. Staff we attentive and informative. The... More

We had our local Balinese driver take us to Bali Asli on the back of the trip advisor recommendations and we were not disappointed. Bali Asli is about 90 minutes from Sanur and has a spectacular view over the valley up to Mount Agung. We met the owner Penny and she explained the menu comes from what is grown locally... More

We had a great day, 6 guests including 1 child. Our day started off in the market buying the fresh produce, very interesting. Then we were back to learn about the flavours of what we were about to cook with. That was followed by a very well put together cooking class. Finally we got to eat what we had cooked.... More

Bali Asli is located in Gelumpang village, near the town of Amlapura, the capital of Karangasem regency, in the North East of Bali. About 2 hours drive from the airport, and 30minutes from Candidasa village, and 30minutes from Amed village.
Nestled in the foot hills of Mount Agung, Bali’s most sacred mountain, surrounded by rice fields, there is not a building to be seen.
Bali Asli promotes Balinese cuisine and culture without exploiting it or it’s people.
We embrace our community, supporting those who fish, farm and forage in the near by fields, ocean and jungle.

Our menu offers authentic Balinese food using a traditional Balinese style kitchen, cooking on wood-fired, mud brick stoves, allowing the real flavours of Bali to shine.
Most of our ingredients are either grown in our garden, in our neighbour’s garden or purchased from the local market

The cooking school runs unique classes themed on “a day in the life of...” every class includes an adventure into local areas off the beaten track. Weather it is learning how to plant rice or plough with a cow, fishing in a jukung canoe and cooking on an open fire or making cocktails from cashew nut wine, our students always leave with fond memories and new skills to experiment with when they get home.
