Of the five people in our table, none was impressed with the food. Expendsive bland food. The best part was the interesting decor from forrest gump movie. If you go to eat, do not bother: but if you go take photos and see memorabilia from the movie, then is is for you.

I visitef this place with 2 friends and order just 2 menu and three drinks and we were beyond full with the big portions (note: we are all Indonesians with not to big tummies).

We order a shrimp platter (consist of 3 types of shrimp dishes - fried, tempura and thai sause) and it was quite good. The highlight of our meal was actually the baby back ribs. It was so good (definitely one of the best). We ordered the larg size and we got 18 rib bones!

The staffs were very friendly and you will get a complimentary birthday cake if you tell them.

Expensive. Expensive. Expensive.

Food was predictable and boring. I'm not a health freak, and I love my 'bad' food, but this is just uninspiring high fat, tasteless fried food.

The restaurant relies on Forrest Gump gimmicks, but like the movie, it's getting old and predictable.

If you like this type of food....go to the Hard Rock. That's expensive too, but seems to taste better. Better still, go to Maccas and Burger King and save yourself a fortune.

A meal for 4 adults, including a couple of drinks each, will set you back around AUD $120 - $140. That's a lot of money in Bali !!!

Just my opinion.

if you have seen forest gump movie and adore the movie that much. You have to come to the Bubba Gump Shrimp.
Because you feel like being part of the movie, they play on and on the forest gump movie all the time, every display are look like in the movie. The menu in print on ping pong stuff, there is big board written "RUN FOREST RUN" and many other display.

And the Bubba Gump Shrimp sell many kind of Forest Gump Souvenir, such as :
fridge magnet is written "STUPID IS STUPID DOES" " or "My Momma Say I'M SPECIAL", t-shirt with many design and quote from the movie, and many more.

They have anything related with the movie, you gonna love it.

The food in the restaurant is OK, the serve anything about shrimp, and also they have other menu such as steak, chicken. the restaurant sometimes giving a bonus because their promotion program (you may ask waitress early).
