We ate here when I was in Bali last year, and I did the Bumbu Bali cooking School (highly recommended), so I was pleased that we'd booked for another Bumbu Bali experience again.

The Bali dishes that three of us shared: Chicken with a coconut cream sauce, chicken sate, BBQ pork ribs (from happy pigs, of course!), all with accompanying rices and sauces. I also had a spicy margarita (infused with fresh chilli), though that was a little disappointing.

The food was EXCELLENT and superbly presented.

Highly recommended. I'll be back.

We decided to try out Bumbu Bali based on friends' recommendation. The restaurant arranged for pickup from our hotel in Nusa Dua and send us back after. Reservation is required as the restaurant is pretty busy most nights.

The restaurant is set on the courtyard of a Balinese house. It was nicely decorated and the ambience was very nice.

Food wise, they are more of Balinese cuisine rather than Indonesian cuisine. It is supposedly famous for its babi guling (roast pork) but you have to order one day in advance, so we didn't get to try that. We ordered a set which was quite generous in servings. Some of the dishes were good, especially the pork satay but some were just average. We ordered the grilled pork ribs as well and that was quite good. Overall, although the food presentation is impressive, it still has some room to improve in terms of taste.

Pricing-wise, it's pretty good value if you treat it as a fine dining experience as Bumbu Bali has set itself to be.

Although not impressive, it is still probably the best we had in Nusa Dua/Tg Benoa area.

Made a booking to this restaurant after recommendation from a friend & was conveniently located from our hotel (Conrad). Bookings are a must as it took 2 days to get our preferred time & we saw many people being turned away on the night we dined.
Food was authentic Indonational food and was well priced, as were drinks. We (my hubby & I) chose a mini banquet that gave us a taste of about 8-10 dishes and again about 4-5 for sweets. We don't eat pork and they were more than happy to change a few dishes for us. A wonderful friendly atmosphere with very attentive staff. Venue is clean and very hygenic.
Thoroughly recommend to anyone wishing to taste traditional Indo food & we will definately return with our family on our next visit.
