“Delicious food with attentive service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We heard that this place was good and, boy, did it not disappoint. There were many Indonesians favourite with a Western twist - some turned out better, some not so. Overall, the food was lovely and the service better still.

“Stunning food, cocktails and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

The food here would rival any 1, 2 or 3 hat restaurant in Australia.
The food is modern, imaginative, plated and presented beautifully.
The chefs here should be very proud of their dishes, each plate was a piece of art.
Unassuming from the front, once you enter you the place seems to transfer you to an upmarket fine dining restaurant.
Prices are high, but the food and service definitely deliver.
The cocktail menu is as imaginative as the food, we tried a passion fruit margarita and the espresso martini -stunning.
Treat yourself to Chandi, it's a lovely dining experience

“Fabulous Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Went to Chandi last night and had a fabulous meal.
Duck Betutu was really quite an experience. Flavours are extremely good and the presentation and attention to detail with the dish are marvellous. If you've never done it, bring an appetite and do it!
Service was very good, not too strong but very attentive.

“perfect after a whole day travelling.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Brilliant food, great atmosphere, top notch service. The layout us such that it feels quite intimate but actually it's huge.

Service is incredibly attentive but not in the least over bearing, could rival any top London restaurant. London prices though, but well worth it in the middle of our trip around Indonesia.

All courses were excellent and sneaking a peak at other tables I think every dish was.

Good for families, couples and groups.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Heavy rain and strong wind did not detract from a memorable dining experience at Chandi. Set on the main drag in Seminyak in an uninspiring building the scenic shifts when you walk into a beautiful dining experience.

For the food...very nice menu for both seafood and meats. We went with the seafood platter for two persons and were not disappointed. Very nicely presented on a solid stone platter we devoured he spiney lobster, crab, tiger prawns,scallops and clams all delicately grilled too perfection. Didn't bother with the dessert but it did look tempting.

Good value for quality and service.
