Dined with a friend, after looking at several reviews. The food would have rated more highly but for one main (i.e. we had two exceptional entrees, one very good main, and was very disappointing main). Price is reasonable and the service was efficient, though not as knowledgeable as needed in describing how some of the dishes were prepared. There was a very loud table near us which made conversation difficult and detracted from the atmosphere. The problem main occurred with the lemongrass chicken dish which was dry and chewy. I would still rank it as one of the best restaurants near the UNSW (where I am a frequent interstate visitor), as those eateries located on Anzac Parade are just not worth exploring, unless you are looking for a cheap takeaway meal served fast.

Love this restaurant and friendly service. Excellent decor and the background music and lovely smells always take me back to holidays in Bali. You can either sit inside or in the garden (heated in winter).

Great food choices are the Lumpia Goreng Udang (Prawn spring rolls), Sate, Jimbaran Seafood Curry, Rendang and the delicious Fried Eggplant topped with Chilli, but you can't really go wrong with anything on the menu.

BYO alcohol.
