We returned to Starry House again last week after our pleasurable experience of trying to introduce the idea of sharing and yum cha in December.The food again was very enjoyable.Especially the crumbed chilli prawns .There was not a problem with the dishes coming at intervals,they seem to have grasped the idea and it is not a novelty any more!
Although wine is only available by the glass is not expensive and they have no problem if you want to bring your own special bottle. The service was again very efficient.
We also liked the idea of the "photo album" of the available dishes,along with the usual menu.Ask for this if you don't get one,they have a couple, and it certainly makes choosing dishes easier!
It is good to know there is an air-conditioned dining area at the back of the restaurant as well as the outside area. We think the Starry House is improving each visit!

Went there for a quick meal consisting of dumplings, springrolls etc.

Their dumplings of whick we triede several were terrible, the dough just flowed to the bottom of the wicker. Their springrolls was better but nothing special.

Chinese style restaurant in Sanur. Decided to eat here as we found the local Indonesian food quite bland and we can get western back home.

Spring rolls to start, I then had a noodle dish plus steamed rice and my wife ordered a beef dish which was strips of beef wrapped around oriental mushroom supposedly in a savoury Chinese sauce, I can’t remember the name of the sauce. The intention was to share, which we did.

It was a disappointment, the starter was ok, but the main courses were bland and did not taste like Chinese. The beef dish appeared to be over the counter beef slices wrapped around mushrooms with a bland sauce poured over. No bottles of wine only from a wine box by the glass, bintang about 38,000 rupiah. Food was about the same price as that at the Wicked Parrot but the quality did not match.

The waitress insisted on telling us her life story, how poor she was how much she earned and how much it cost to send her children to school, obviously to get a tip. The service she gave was actually very good and she would have got a tip without the hard luck story.

We did not return. Ten percent tax charged, no service charge, internet blogs and ex-pats we met said that only the larger establishments were liable for this tax although we found all restaurants charged it.

It was at least walled off from the traffic noise and fumes.
