“GREAT PLACE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2009

We stumbled across this restaurant after walking for kilometers and the name rang a bell. It looks like nothing from the outside but once you walk through the door it is beautiful inside with lovely gardens and very friendly staff. Food was wonderful and we had very prompt service. Will definently go back next time.

“An oasis in Kuta”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2009

Wow - what a find. The food is very nice, we booked ahead and reserved one of the bale huts which has a low table inside and big comfy cushions, so you either kneel or sit at the table inside the hut, a really unique experience. Thoroughly enjoyed the food, cocktails and atmosphere.

“Nothing was too much trouble”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2009

My (new) husband and i had our wedding reception at Kori on the 5th March this year. All of the details were worked out by e-mail and everything went exactly to plan.Max who i dealt with was both professional and accomadating to our requests and very patient with all my last minute inquiries. I had eaten at Kori on previous visits to Bali and was not dissapointed by either a group dinner we had there before the wedding or the wedding reception itself.
We had around 65 guests and as we own a restaurant ourselves were not keen on the easy option of a buffet, we opted for choosing a variety of entrees to be brought to the tables and then for everyone to choose their main meal from the a la carte menu. The service was absolutely amazing and the quality of the meals wonderful. We also had around 10 children in the party (including our 5 year old son) ranging in age from 2 - 12, they were catered for with a special bale set up for them and even staff to help them choose their meal and keep them amused.
As a surprise ,after the cake had been cut (complimentary thanks to Max) all of the staff including the chefs came and sang us a song using pots etc as drums.(sounds bizarre but was actually really cool!!)
To conclude Kori delivered exactly what we were after in a wedding venue, somewhere central to where everyone stayed, classy , with great food and service but stiill having that Balinese feel.

“Not as good as last trip”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2009

We just got back from Bali and visited Kori as we do everytime we go to Bali and must say that we were pretty disappointed in the food. We later found out that the NZ guy that use to run it has sold it which is probably why the quality of food has dropped. The atmosphere is still great, and the service is still good but the food was average.

“The best restaurant in Bali...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2009

This was THE BEST restaurant i have been to in Bali...there's nothing i could suggest to make it better. The atmosphere is relaxing and very asian, the staff are very attentive and helpful, and the food is to DIE FOR!!!

The koftas and java corn soup were divine...i don't think i've had a better soup in all my life...that soup was AMAZING...i've been craving it ever since i left Bali!!! Their mei gorang is delicious as well...and their lamb shanks just melt in your mouth!!! We went with a whole bunch of people and everyone enjoyed their meals...no complaints at all...

Their menu has a wide variety of dishes for every taste and so does their drinks menu. I couldn't ask for a better restaurant in Bali...i'll definately be going back there when i visit Bali next...I LOVE THE KORI!!! :)

If you're in Bali, you HAVE to go here...it's amazing!!! :)
