“Delicious meal in nice surroundings at a great price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

We found this restaurant (not a café I feel) on Trip advisor and made sure we had a booking. It is quite small and off the beaten track but as previous reviewers have said; well worth tracking down.

The décor is simple but well planned with privacy between tables. The meals were delicious and all of our party of eight stated they enjoyed their meal. The meals arrived together, were well presented and had heaps of flavour. The choice of wines was limited however we found some that were satisfactory.

The staff were polite and attentive and of course very friendly. To top it all off the bill was a real shock. We expected to pay much more than what we did.

We have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant but suggest you make a reservation in advance as it is relatively small but not to be missed.

“Wonderful !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

We have been following the TA food trail and decided on this restaurant for our last night in sanur. What a wonderful meal. The three of us had the tuna, duck, and stuffed chicken and all were exceptional. This restaurant is setting a new benchmark for sanur. We are looking forward to returning!

“Excellent dinner with friends at Kayu Manis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Excellent food.
Excellent service.
However, limited wine/alcoholic drink list especially when compared to, say, CharMing.
We had a great night.
Thx Kayu Manis.

“Put this restaurant on your list!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

Kayu Manis is well worth trying. The menu is a pleasant 'upgrade' to most of the local warungs / restaurants in the area. IF this place was located along the main strip with other restaurants you would not get a table, luckily it is tucked away in a quiet street just a few minutes drive from the main tourist area. The restaurant had a recent upgrade this time last year and the atmosphere is pleasant, tables presentation is appealing and part of the restaurant is air conditioned. Staff are all welcoming, well presented in matching uniforms and it is obvious they have had decent training. Specials 'boards' are bought to your table, starters of salmon and fresh hot baked bread is complimentary.Food is served in a timely manner and presentation is tops!. Food is all fresh, well cooked and reasonably priced. We paid 400,000rp for 2 meals, fruit juice, large bintang, soft drink and 3 deserts, and this price included the salmon & bread. Overall a very good price for what we received. The chef makes his way around the tables welcoming guests and checking they are happy with their meals. This place is a 'step up' in service, ambience, food choice and quality and we will be returning. I would recommend booking as it can get busy and many tables are reserved in advance.
We caught a local green bemo to the corner of Jln. Tandakan which is where the restaurant is located. The restaurant is towards the bypass direction of JL Tandakan, (not the beach side of the street). It is a 2 minute walk to get there. Well worth the short drive to get there.
