“Good grub but quite grubby”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

Had nasi campur and ayam panggang and they were both tasty and freshly prepared. However the place needs a good spring clean as it is looking a tad shabby....nothing like the snazzy pix you see on their website.

“No Service and average meals”
Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

After looking at TA we went yo BuBu and it did not live up to the expectations

The service was poor, we ordered 2 cokes 1arrived chilled and a 5 minute wait for the second while the staff went a purchased a hot one from the shop up the road, hot coke and no ice....

The food was OK the mixed satay was fine but the spicy chicken was very very dry... Tasted like it was cooked 2 days before and reheated on the grill. The sweet potato fries where the pick for the night.

“The Real Deal”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Come to Penestanan, a short distance from Ubud and you will not be disappointed. There are a few warungs in this lovely village, but the best by far is Bubu Warung. You have a family run restaurant that serve excellent fresh food ( you can hear the chop chop chopping in the kitchen) and the result is sublime. Lots of favourites so hard to list, but this family could not get enough of Made's Spring Rolls ... so so delicious. The value must not be ignored ... Fantastic. Lastly, the family who run this warung make up a key ingredient to returning.. They are friendly, warm, gracious and modest.

“This is what you want when you eat in Bali”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

A few Kilometres from the centre of Ubud, go to this great family run warung in Penestanan. It's what we think of when we we don't want the hyped up, glamed up eateries that lack the essence of Bali. The food is as fresh as it gets and Made is a brilliant cook and has great family backup. I have eaten in numerous warungs around Bali and this one is the one I always return to. Don't expect slick sophistication that you can get in any city, but do expect incredible authentic food served by beautiful people.
