“An unique,friendly and delicious food ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

Knowing Amier as a multi talented person especially as a designer since long time. So surprised and happy to know that I have chance to taste his special and delicious food ever! I love eat and mostly doing my culinary trip wherever I go. I had Gaeng Gari Chicken or people know better as Thai Green Curry, simply I can say it's delicious as I can compare the taste with the original one that I had in Thailand.
Will make sure to book in advance in near future so I can have chance again to chit chat while enjoying some great foods and the "enak" banana lassie. Thanks a lot, my bro Amier!!! xoxoxoxo

“Overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

We've been attracted to this restaurant by the great reviews posted on this website but quite disapointed by our experience. True, the food is good but you have to wait a quite long time before getting it and you can easily find as good in Ubud. Service depends on the availability of the chef/owner/waiter who is also a big smoker and will therefore take care of you after a cigarette or two. We didn't care until he made us understand that it would be good if we left so he could have new customers. After all, business is business, even in Bali.

“Tiny but great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

You better book in advance as this lovely little place has only 3 tables. Despite its size the menu offers a good choice of different flavours.
As this is a "one man show" food takes a while to be served but waiting is absolutely worthwhile. Reserve the outside table and enjoy the experience.
Best food in town, best "dadar gulung" in Bali. Well done, Amir!

“A real find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

Wouldnt have spotted this place was even a restaurant without having read tripadvisor. We booked for the evening when passing during day. Only one other couple were there a bit before us so nice atmosphere. Food took about an hr to come but we expected that and were happy with our beers. All food was delicious and we had plenty plus dessert. Chef v chatty and overall a great and unique dinner!

“Be realistic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

We went to this tiny restaurant because it showed up as being within the best 2 or 3 in Ubud with a rating of 5 or close to it. There must be something sentimental about those other reviews. We loved our time here and had wholesome food. The owner/chef/waiter/bottle washer is a great guy. But as a restaurant it does not rate anywhere near 5. I mention this in case anyone did like us and makes a booking here expecting something awesome.
