Noticed this small warung few years ago,but this year when i revisited Ubud in June,and stayed not far,so had a chance to have dinner here.i ordered their signature dish,putu kecap,i chose tempe,cuz found the price not cheap( compared to other big warung)and also ordered pisang goreng and special tea(lemongrass something), taste not bad,the sauce is sweet and nice,but the portion as you read here,some pointed out very small,so a bit pricey,not sure other dish,like nasi goreng big or small.for me just an experience,the tea no problem,but it is very common tea in Indonesia,so the price should reflect the value.about pisang goreng,for me a bit sour,they put honey on it to make it sweet,but not my taste!if you are new to Indonesian food or local food,and stay close to it,you can have a try,service is good,only the portion not good.

Have visited this Warung many times in the last few months. We have always found it to be absolutely delicious, the service is exceptional and it is very well priced. Thank you Putu, Nomad and Tueria Om Swastiastu!

Not sure how this place is so highly rated. I waited 58 minutes for a basic nasi goreng. Tasteless as well. The portion sizes for the cost are ridiculous. You get around 1/2 a cup of rice for 50k. I ask them to add chicken but they were out of chicken and did not tell me till after I was served. When I got the bill they did not even total it up right and by “accident” added an addition 15% on top of the already normal 15% so food plus 30%. When corrected they acted surprised. I presume this is a normal thing for them as most tourist probably don’t realize and just pay. I suggest going to another place as there are many in close proximity that are far superior.

It is a small but wonderful place in a side street, so much quieter and relaxing to have dinner. Although the street could look a bit dark first, you should continue!

The food is fantastic and we had dinner here twice. The avocado chicken salad was delicious, so we also ordered it twice to share. The nasi campur, goreng, and putu's chicken were delicious. Last but not least the pisang goreng also tasted great!

So definitely recommend this place! Delicious food for a very low price.
