I wondered why ratings for this joint were high but reviews were mixed. Then I got there and realized that (formerly of Masterchef Indonesia) Chef Degan, the owner, has many years experience working abroad and has chosen a formula to stand out from the thousands of other restaurants in Bali. They make international-quality local dishes but also provide the usual... More

Came in here because Smokehouse BBQ was closed and I love me some Massaman curry and crispy spring rolls. Restaurant was very elegant but pretty empty and maybe a little too big with too much staff cause the spring rolls were excellent but for being the most expensive thing on the menu, there was only 3 very small pieces of...

Tried their ayam bakar (grilled chicken) and tumis kangkung. The taste is so so. But they charge Australia's price. Quite disappointed.

Fish was ok, have had better in much cheaper ikan bakar restaurant or sundanese restaurant, somtum was ok, nothing special, really liked the skewered chicken but would not come back only for that, now the...

Came here for lunch twice, I could not get enough of their fried rice with pineapple and salted fish, yum! The mee goreng was also very tasty!

The duck is good, real good. We had a simple meal of duck and steamed rice with bean salad. A couple of tempting masalas lay close by. But the bean salad had its complement of chilli, so the masala was not tested. Certainly would recommend the Degan (young coconut) if you're after some Indonesian authenticity in the food stakes.

Food is a mix of Thai and Indonesian. Both choices were of good quality. They offer a specific non smoking dining area which is a real plus. Service and price good.
