“Excellent food at very reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

We visited this restaurant several years ago with friends who live in Bali and we were delighted when they suggested we should meet up at the Dahana a few days ago. Situated in a former house there is a lovely warm welcoming atmosphere which is a great plus but the main event, the food is extremely good. We decided to have a drink to start and remembering our previous visit we ordered Atatak which went down very well. We had a choice of wonderful starters, so many that it was difficult to choose because every dish is beautifully presented and tastes as good as it looks. One of my favourite restaurants in Bali, it is particularly good value and I would have expected the dishes to have been much more expensive for the quality.

“Nice ambience, good meal at reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

It's been my numerous time to come to Dahana.
Still same place with nice ambience.
Dont expect crowd, neither sophisticated menus nor varieties... by the way they serve japanese menu
Now they have a teppan kitchen, that you have booked in advance

“Amazing food, fantastic value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

We ate at Dahana 3 times during our stay. We eat quite early so it was relatively quiet each time we got there, but when we left the restaurant was beginning to pack out. The restaurant itself has quite a nice outdoor seating area by a pool. There are some cool looking Japanese style seating areas too, but they were always reserved. The service was fast and efficient. The food quality was amazing, everything we ordered was so fresh and delicious. I ordered the large Sashimi plate each time as it was great value for money and so tasty. Will definitely be back next time we're in Bali.

“One of my Bali favourites”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

Have been going here for years and twice in the last week.

This trip the service was not exactly spot on, usually you had to hail someone rather than simply be attended but the food is still of the same high standard and remains exceedingly well priced.

One of my absolute favourites with one of best outdoor settings around.

“Where's the good button when you need it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

Just came back from a night eating in Dahana. There's not that much I can say. There was one hick-up. My friend made a reservation the same day but when I arrived then they were not aware... It wasn't a big problem as they still had some places left.
Food was good. Atmosphere was good. Prices were good. Service was ok. Everything was brought to us on time. On the other hand there was nothing that really sticks out but then again I can't give an average rate either. Therefore I prefer to give the very good rate even though it was not completely this way. But then again there's no "Good" button on Tripadvisor. Not really sure why this is not the case.
Would it go back to this place? Probably not. I prefer to go to other Japanese restaurants.
