“Second time and still great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

That was not our first trip to Bali and although we had some very seriously delicious food in Bali but we had to go back to Melting Wok and Geraldin and Phillip did not disappoint us.

Great fresh food as usual, not to many choices however it is so yummy, Geraldin is as welcoming and cheerful as always.
Reservation is needed specially if you are going after 7pm, as they only have 7 tables. It is also good to know that they close on mondays.

we will certainly go back on our next trip to bali. Thank you Geraldin and Phillip.

“Lunch Date with Susan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

It is best to have a reservation. The French owner is lovely and she will make her rounds to ensure that everyone is satisfied with the food and service.The menu is limited but the food is fresh and good. Be careful of the little side salad - it is spicy!

“Delicious food, excellent staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

We went there because of the excellent reviews here on TA. We wanted to make a booking for the evening, but they were already fully booked. So we decided to go at 5 pm and the owner already told us that we just have 1,5 h for our dinner. For us it was no problem--even better that she told us before. The menu is really small and the staff comes to your table and explains everything. she even tells you that they serve the food with peanuts on top just as an information for any allergic person. My boyfriend and I both took the Coconut curry with noodles and marlin and chicken. It tasted great!!!Definetly one of the most authentic curries I have tried so far. Unfortunately, theres was no space left for a dessert, but we already made a booking again for tonight..
