“You would not believe it!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2011

Simply amazing quality food with attentive and professional service with a price point that you would not believe.

We have been lucky enough to travel widely and enjoy Michelin 3* dining acrosss the globe yet this haven of tranquility in a back street warung is literally right up there.

Starter was a superb prawn salad followed by a perfectly cooked Aussie tenderloin, gorgeous wife had the snapper which was perhaps the best ever.

It really doesn't get any better than this, even the wine was (just) affordable which is rare in Bali given the tax points

Do not miss this one if you are in or near to Sanur, we have been to Sanur for 15 years and only just found it so don't delay!

“Excellent Service & Yummy Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2011

We visit Sanur 2 times every year & always visit Kayu Manis. The food is the best, service is great & restaurant is small & clean. You need to book a couple of days in advance as it usually booked out every night. Highly Recommended.

“Lovely Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2011

This small restaurant has really nice decor and lovely fresh tasty food. The servings are not massive but what you get is very atttactive on the plate and very tasty. Due to its size it is definately worth booking, as they are quite popular and have quite an intimate setting.

“Just Brilliant Food and Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2011

Now been in Bali close to three months and have visited this great little place over half a dozen times. Have taken guests from overseas there also and they have just raved about our great find! The food is just second to none. The detailed presentation, great taste quality of food makes this just a brilliant all round place. Yes the Restaurant is small and menu limited but try and find better quality food with simple but friendly service is just not going to happen. We are a huge wrap and almost too selfish to recommend just in case we can't get a seat.

“Not disappointed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2011

Searching places to eat during the stay in Sanur area, it's on top of the list so gave it a try!
Booked in advance as advised by pervious visitors, it's vy true as tables are limited but it also keeps the quality of the food.
We ordered 2 appetizers shrimp salad (☆☆☆ out of 5)& tuna carpaccio (☆☆☆☆) , share a seafood pasta (☆☆☆☆☆) , stuffed squid w risotto (☆☆☆☆☆) & fish w beacon & bake potato(☆☆☆☆☆). Finally the desert, lime sorbetto w fresh fruit juice (☆☆☆☆☆☆)!!!
