When we first started coming to Bali 22 years ago, Poppies Gang II was a quiet, pleasant lane connecting Jalan Legian with the beach. There were a couple of small Warungs, Poppies Cottages II, a few cows and chickens in the fields - and not much else. Now it is an ugly thoroughfare with too may shops, touts, magic mushroom stalls, motorbikes and other undesirables. Unfortunately for Kori, it is situated smack bang in the middle of this chaos.

We have eaten at Kori on many occasions in the past and the food has generally been good. This time, however, it was a bit of a let down. Both our appetisers - crab spring rolls and calamari were fine but my chicken cordon bleu was dry and stringy. Not really up to the standard we expected. Our Bali benchmark wine - Hatten's rose was Rp 280,000 - towards the expensive end of the spectrum. As always the service was good and the garden setting is pleasant.

The more we see of Kuta, the happier we are being in Legian and eating in Seminyak or Kerobokan.

We had to spend lot of time to reach this place and it was worth taking the trouble. The place is nicely done for an wonderful dinner with family. The quality and presentation was excellent. The price is also good. I wish they had some more choice. The staff is very nice and warm. We enjoyed the evening for it's ambiance, food and live music.

Visited Kori following the advice of Trip Advisor & were not dissapointed. Tucked back behind the entrance is a quaint spot with a lovely atmosphere including tropical plants, water features & cosy nooks of tables. Not cheap, yet not expensive, delicious food & great service. Would definitely go here again.

I visited Kori with two friends on our last night in bali. The food was quick delicious and cheap. The staff were lovely and easy to communicate with. The actual venue is beautiful with the whole Indonesian garden theme happening. This place caters for those after something traditional and also for those who are missing the foods from home in Australia. Would be a great family place or for those who aren't adventitious with trying new foods and wants something yummy. Would defiantly go back again
