Ibu Susu is just awesome. I've been there a few times now and every time I try new dishes and cocktails - every bite or sip is sensational! They have a very exciting menu on offer, my personal favourite dishes include the soft shell crab salad and the pork belly steamed buns and for cocktails its hard to beat their lycheelisious martini! The staff are also super friendly and attentive. Ibu Susu is definitely a treat not to be missed. I'll be returning again and again.

I first visited this restaurant on the recommendations of some friends I was meeting in Ubud. They had been there for a couple of weeks and apparently Ibu Susu had already become a firm favorite.
I was a bit jet lagged when I first arrived, but a bangin' espresso martini and light, funny chit chat from the smiling waiter soon lifted my mood.
I ordered the quesadillas. Unfortunately for me, I missed the menu saying Tofu (I’m not a fan). It came out of my mouth before I even realised and the waiter immediately offered to get me a new one. It really wasn’t that much of a problem, I was just being picky… but he was genuine in his offer again, I laughably had to force the hand in decline.

In the 10 days scheduled in Ubud, I think I ended up dining in Ibu Susu 5 or 6 times, and even more for happy hour cocktails (BARGIN!!). Ibu Susus menu and execution keeps you wanting more. Every single dish delivers both in vision and taste.
With each visit I better understood the drive behind it all. That smiley funny waiter from my first night was actually the owner, Ketut. A local who spent 5 years living and working his butt off in Melbourne Australia to save and develop his skills to bring back home. It was then it all clicked, the Indonesian authenticity with that western flair, the overwhelming Balinese kindness mixed with cheeky Australian twang, the indoor/outdoor fresh, exotic and cool! Ketut, his restaurant and unbelievable staff dont miss a detail and are definitely all about the serious game of FUN!

Get yourself to Ibu Susu if you want it all, because its got it!!

I can't wait to come back!!!

Had a late lunch / early dinner here. They appear to be focused on cocktails at that time. The food was good, a reasonable size serving, but prices were a bit higher than average for the area. There are soooo many places to choose from in this area that once was sufficient for this trip.

Hi Milton,

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review! Firstly we are really happy to hear you enjoyed our food! Our pricing may seem a little higher than some (by no means all) of the surrounding restaurants however as a business we have made the decision to only use the best ingredients to maintain quality and consistency of our food and beverages and this does cost.

We are primarily a Pan Asian Bar & Restaurant with a focus on Signature Cocktails and our Dinner share plates - I worked in Melbourne in one of the premier Asian Fusion restaurants so I am confident in the product we have created.

In addition to quality product and good portions we also offer complimentary infused water, cloth napkins, hand towels and we always try and go the extra mile for our customers so we think our product is a steal.

We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Ubud and we hope to serve you one of our signature cocktails on your next trip!

THIS restaurant in the Monkey Sanctuary area, it opened 4 months ago. We had dinner here 2 times. We had the twice cooked chicken on both ocassions, the sauce was great. We also had the blacken cod with tamarind sauce, very nice meal well presented. We had a chocolate brulle one night it was mouth watering. They provide water infused with lemon and cucumber, really refreshing. We did not have a cocktail but they are very good from what I understand, they do 2 for 1 drinks during happy hour. They are opened from morning to night, this cafe is being discovered and is definitely worth the little extra you pay over nearby eateries. The service is great, the owner Ketut looks after the serving with his assistants and has a great chef managing the kitchen. Definitely eat here when you are in Ubud.

We went to this restaurant by chance for cocktails at happy hour, the service was so good we stayed on for a meal. The waiter made some great recommendations and the food was delightful, fresh with great flavour cobinations. Modern attractive decore and clean facilities.
I would recommend this restaurant fo those looking for fine casual dinning.
