Started the day with Penny the chef/owner taking us to the local buzzy market to buy some of our ingredients. She told us a lot of interesting facts about the produce and we sampled some of the food. Back at the restaurant we made our own offering baskets and learnt about the Gods and the rituals. With Mt Agur in... More

This was a beautiful traditional restaurant set up high with an incredible outlook. We visited this restaurant with 18 other women and were given the Nasi Campur which was a taste of several traditional foods. It was interesting and not too hot! The view from the toilet has to be seen to be believed.

We learned about this beautiful place from tripcanvas and immediately decided to try. The place was not difficult to find, it took us approximately 1,5hr from Ubud with the help of google map. The view was clear at that time, blue sky, calm sunny weather. Tables were completely filled by other guests by the time we left. The service was... More

We went for a cooking class, and were delighted by the architecture of the restaurant. We met Penny, the owner and our instructor. She gave us a ton of insight as to the ingredients we were to be using, the cooking techniques and so much more. We cooked using basic non electric good old fashioned hand tools and gas and... More

Penny the owner and Chef of Bali Asli is a wonderful ambassador for Balinese cooking and culture! We spent the day learning about Bali's history, culture, spices, and then we prepared a 5-dish meal that was delicious. Do not miss this experience!

Location location location. Incredible views for a very spacial restaurant. A bit difficult to find unless your driver knows about it or that you use a gps like gogglemaps. They have local cuisine classes that you eat afterwards. Truly a experience. Awesome views of the wilderness.

Thank Starmoad

Location and Contact Information

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.
