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.

The only letdown for us was the service. Unfriendly an inattentive at first (our table was not ready yet, and when someone finally informed us we could sit at another... More

We came here for lunch during a stay in nearby Jasri. The view from Bali Asli is stunning, even in the rain. The staff were so welcoming and the Indonesian dishes were delicious. It's definitely worth a visit.

I can't rate our Bali Asli experience highly enough, we had an absolutely brilliant "Day in the Life of an Indonesian Fisherman" from our driver Made, to out fisherman, O'Neil, our chef Dewa, Gudi and all the staff. Such a beautiful place to spend time. Our cooking class was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire day. I have told... More

Description
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.
