“Do NOT go in if you are not of certain origins.”
Reviewed December 19, 2013 via mobile

Went to ibu rai as it was highly recommended by our hotel. We were pretty much the only asian table there, and the servers did not seem very willing to serve us. They look perfectly amenable to all the other tables.

Presentation of food was marvellous but the taste was horrendous. The best thing we had was the complimentary starter which was the gyoza, even then it was cold and soggy. The simplest dish of gado gado (indonesian salad with peanut sauce) came with sauce that was so bland it was as if i was eating steamed/boiled vegetables soaked in water.

Ordered a separate dish of kerupuk (prawn crackers), it was delivered to the wrong table. The patron ate it, and then the server realized his mistake, he then took the plate and served it to us. Not wanting to be difficult we ate it nevertheless. The crackers were not fresh, not crunchy and when we were finishing at the bottom we found some liquid! Yuck!!!

If you have this kind of money to spare, you are better off spending it elsewhere... good luck!

We visited this restaurant a year ago and found it very okay. So we came back today. We get a nice table on the front of the restaurant. Friendly and pleasant staff. The food is really good + tasteful. This restaurant has not the best reviews on this site, but the food is always GREAT !! The price is very good.We can recommend Ibu Rai.

“What a surprise...fantastic food and service.”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

We had lunch here and were genuinely surprised at the fanastic quality of food - beautifully presented dishes, fantastic flavours and huge portions. It was almost fine dining with super value prices.
I'd defiantly recommend The chicken satay and the black cod - but as the portions are so large maybe go in the evening to really enjoy.
The juices and smoothies were also excellent.

“Traditional Balinese food at good prices”
Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

We were traveling as a family of 16 and it's difficult to please all but this restaurant did. Even the children were happy. Nice mix of western and traditional. Fresh green salads, chicken with ginger and coriander, Mie goreng with satay and excellent sauces. The prices were very reasonable and the food portions were large. Beautiful decor in the restaurant. Well situated in Main Street in Ubut.
