We only went in to use the loo but decided to stay for lunch. The staff were so friendly and the service was excellent!!! The chicken stays were very hot and the peanut sauce was the best I have tasted in Bali. We had lots of fun with Bogart who mad us feel very special and even sang a song with two of us. He even introduced us to his beautiful girlfriend Bella who was outside on her bike. We felt like part of the family and all this in only 1 hour. The other waiting staff were fun too with pictures taken and smiles and laughs all round. We will definitely go back again.

We do hope you will come again in the future soon.

The Indonesian spread buffet looked really varied; although we tried the a-la carte menu. The restaurant has a very rustic Indonesian feel to it, without compromising on the nouvea features we have come to expect from good restaurants. The food is excellent; and there was a performance by traditional dancers. My wife was called on at the end to accompany the dancers on stage for a few steps and she enjoyed the experience; as did many others from their smiling faces after their dance. We spoke with the owner who is a nice elderly gentleman; and I'm sure I will be back here next time I am in Kuta.

Front of house very good at getting us inside for breakfast (discount) and happy he did. Typical hotel buffet with egg station, bacon, beef sausages, nasi kuring, cereal, pastries, juices etc. Relatively tranquil setting considering next to main road. Staff friendly and attentive. Close to airport which was a bonus for us.

Well well well!! So disappointed!
We had dinner at Gabah on 4th June.
We dined here on our last visit to Bali and really enjoyed our meal so we were looking forward to returning this visit!
Just plain wrong!!
I had the Nasi Goreng Gaba horrible!!! The sate's were stone cold straight from the fridge the egg in the Nasi Goreng was blue Bali belly waiting to happen!
Hubby had the Be Sampi Base the beef was so tough that we couldn't even chew it!!!! Kids weren't hungry that night thank god!! We left all of our meals to tired to complain and I cannot believe we didn't get sick!!
Meal was 540,265 with 2 alcoholic drinks and 1 soda water, what a waste of money!!!
That food should not have been served!!! Never Ever Again NO 2nd chances after that!!!!
