Loved the fresh salads. This is a unique vegan restaurant. I'm not vegan but could eat there every day. Food was fresh. Love choosing from their salad bar. Delicious unusual toppings.

I'd passed by Alchemy many times, thinking I should try, before I actually went there - oh boy, I regret that! I've been there almost every day I've had the chance ever since. love the salad and the desserts so much!

First time there, I was greeted by a host, who explained the concept to me - where to order, where to pay etc.

I only have one day left in Ubud now, and I intend to eat as much as possible at Alchemy before I leave :)

Oh buddy where do I start. I'm not a vegan or a vegetarian at all but this place dishes up the best salad I've ever had. You want dressings, they give you 6 options, you want 20 different toppings on your lettuce.. No problem. You want to add cheese to it but not feel like a fatty, they have you covered. They make cheese out of some kind of nut people.. Just go there for that revelation.

I just recently been interested in eating clean/raw/vegan menu and was very excited to visit this place. I made sure after we landed, alchemy was our 1st stop.
A little hard to find, but we used waze so it was ok.
PROS:
- its a little heaven for healthy eaters
- variety of drinks (juices, non dairy drinks, and drinks in bottles to take home, desserts, non dairy ice cream)
- convenient seating/table
- tasty food
- the mini market offers many earth products which i can spend half a day only learning about it

Cons:
Confusing ordering concept, staffs seemed to assume we know how things work around the place.
The restaurant needs to find a new salad bar staff, someone who's passionate abuout the food, willing to explain, and has a big SMiLE! I asked about the quiche replacement flour and she grunted and said we dont use flour at all, well yes i know but a little explanation and joyful smile will help a lot.

Our order was spinach quiche, raw nori rolls, a variety of raw dessert from the bar.

Overall, i feel the restaurant has a lot to offer and would like to come back! However, the service and staffs made me feel i dont belong there :(
