We decided to visit for dinner based on previous reviews and I made a reservation well in advance. The restaurant is bright and cheery and has a great atmosphere, the staff are all very friendly and we were welcomed to the restaurant by Ketut and shown to our table. The menu is Balinese fusion with a very modern twist and deciding what to order took some time. We had starters of Butterfish Sashimi, Thai Papaya and Pomelo salad and the steamed pork belly buns, OMG everything was outstanding the sashimi melted in your mouth and I could have eaten another six buns they were so good. For our mains my wife had the chicken satay which she polished off in no time and I had the beef rendang, I like to think I know my Rendangs and this was one of the best I've tasted. An espresso martini finished off the night and we went home happy. Please give this place a try if you are in Ubud you won't regret it, as far as we were concerned it's the best restaurant in town

The food here is amazing - we returned twice. The flavours are exquisite and the staff are super friendly. Every item we ordered - pork belly bao buns / dim sum / salad / tofu stir fry was delicious and full of flavour. Despite being in demand, nobody rushes you out. Best restaurant in Ubud.

Hi Nadine,

Thank you so much for the review :) we only have a small kitchen and therefor a small menu and our ratio of non vegetarian to vegetarian is actually quite high which includes 10 main items (a range of different dishes) plus all our sides and desserts. Considering we are a cocktail bar and not a vegetarian restaurant I think there is more than enough to chose from but perhaps one day when we have more kitchen space we will look at expanding our vegetarian menu so thank you for the feedback.

Cheers,

Ketut

We stumbled across this place by chance and it was packed in comparison to the surrounding restaurants which were all dead at around 9pm. As soon as we sat down, we quickly realised how friendly and attentive, as well as knowledgeable, the staff were.

The food was out of this world. We opted for a mix of small plates - chicken satay with peanut sauce and taramin butter, Peking duck pancakes with hoisin sauce, Korean fried chicken and finally some chicken and prawn dim sum with an extra portion of fries. Everything was incredible and tasted fantastic. So fresh and full of flavour. The drinks were equally delightful and so well thought out being garnished perfectly.

The final touch was how engaged and welcoming the owner was, constantly talking to his customers and just being brilliant in general.

I could not rate a restaurant any higher and would urge anyone in Ubud to make it a must visit destination.

This new restaurant radiates enthusiasm. Everything we tried on the menu has an original little twist, and presentation was beautiful. The young owner Ketut is friendly and involved in everything, which is why his business has taken off. The first night we couldn’t get a booking, but after that we booked a couple of nights ahead. Had a wonderful meal.

On our last night, we had a sick child and had to cancel our ‘return to our favourite restaurant’ booking and get takeaway from Ibu Susu’s. It started to rain heavily. Ketut lent me an umbrella which I was so grateful for. It’s indicative of the restaurant’s friendliness that they offered me an umbrella to return the next day, on trust.

Ketut studied/trained in Melbourne and we felt sure that his food standards, were as good as the stylish, warm decor. Great job. We’re sure your little restaurant will continue to be a big success.

Hi LittleLaurie008,

Wow thank you so much for the great review! It was a pleasure hosting you and your family and I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed our food the most out of all the meals you had during your stay in Bali :) We always try and go the extra mile for our guests because we truly want them to have the best possible experience not only at our Restaurant but in general during their time in Bali. We hope you had a safe journey home and that you will come back and visit us again next time!

Cheers,
