“Fantastic service and food......”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Melting Wok last evening. We booked a table due to the limited size of the restaurant. That may be the only limitation this fine establishment has.... from the greeting at the top of the stairs until we departed, the service was friendly, knowledgeable and we were not rushed in any way. While a limited menu, the choices from the regular and special menus (listed on a chalk board and thoroughly explained by our host and waitress) are varied enough to satisfy all. If you like spicy, ask for it, but you will have already been asked by your waitress. My wife chose the fried chicken special (spicy) and I the pork curry with noodles (spicy). Beyond compare! Delicious and an adequate portion which leads us to dessert. We decided to split the chocolate crepe with ice cream. A fine choice to end a pleasant evening.

“Incredible service and curry”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

The service was insanely good, it was like eating at a 5-star restaurant. My girlfriend and I both got the tempe curry and it was delicious. The owner is a lovely French lady who moved here 3 years ago and seems to really love interacting with customers. We'll be going here often.

“Wow, this warung has it right!”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

Melting Pot is worthy of its rating. We turned up on a busy Saturday without a reservation and the staff and owner were very friendly and organized a table, keeping us informed during the short wait. The menu is short and delicious. The curry gets plenty of reviews here but the salad and the tuna we had were every bit as great. This is real and spicy Asian, not toned down for lazy Western tastes. Just amazing. There are a couple of local wines by the glass, served in a very generous portion, and beer. The owner is really lovely and the staff amazing. The detailed descriptions of the dishes and the friendliness were the best I've seen in Bali, including in the fine dining spots. And of course the desserts were as great as everyone says. Super friendly place, and we had a faultless night. Amazing value for what you get.

“Great dessert!”
Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

Had to write a review before I even left the restaurant. We both had the daily special...when they say spicy they mean it. Dessert is what really set this restaurant apart. Chocolate crepe with ice cream was perfect after a long hot day.
