“Beer & Greasy Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

OK so this is the place you go when you want beers, greasy food and a "camp" environment. We stumbled upon this place on the walk back to our hotel and just had to drop in. There's great attention to detail in this place - especially if you know the movie "Forrest Gump". The cocktail menu's are on table tennis bats, all the signs are either from the 1950's or quotes from the movie. There's also quite a unique way of getting your waiters attention - you have 2 number plates on your table.....when you need the waiter you use "stop forrest stop" and when you are all sorted you use "run forrest run". We had some amazing waiters, very bubbly and they even performed some little magic/card tricks. The staff are very loud and happy, so it makes for an enjoyable visit. The cheesy fries and "bubba gump dip" (cheese, artichokes, spinach etc) were delish!

“Great experience but expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

We had lunch at Buuba Gump's in Kuta, the food, service and experience was great however it was expensive for Bali prices. Been there done that now, probably wouldn't go back. Love the way the staff call out and sing.

“Great Family Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Bubba Gumps was a huge hit with our large group of 13 (mostly teenagers) The decor was interesting even for those who have never seen the movie with lots of 50’s/Forest Gump memorabilia around the room. We booked earlier in the day to ensure we were in the airconditioned section, specify that you want the front airconditioned room as the back one lacks the atmosphere of the rest of the restaurant. While shrimp is predominant on the menu there are also burgers and a few other choices for non-shrimp eaters. It’s right next door to Waterbom so a great place to eat after a long day in the sun.

“Plenty of atmosphere here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

Great food and variety. If you are a Forest Gump fan you will not be disappointed but even if you are not you will love it. Forest Gump memorabila all over the place and the movie being played continuously. The staff are fantastic and really get into their roles. If you are having a birthday celebration then this is the place to go. Staff will all come out with their pots and pans and bring a cake out singing. Very very funny. We had the pasta, chicken corn and mash and the mahi mahi - all very very happy with our meals.
