“Unique Concept from Chandi Group”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

This newly opened (less than a month) restaurant belongs to the same owner of Chandi restaurant, which can be considered one of the best restaurants in Seminyak.

The menu consists of noodle, crispy dumpling and steamed dumpling. We tried the ramen with oyster mushroom, black noodle with fish bakso (meat ball), pork belly salad, crab dumpling (steamed) and curried fried dumpling. They all taste good, but my favorite is the oyster mushroom ramen. The mushroom was fried perfectly and very tasty. The noodle, coated with salty egg yolk was also very good.

The portion is quite big and the price is reasonable. Will definitely come back to try the other different dumplings and noodle.

“A great wee find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

Came across this restaurant by walking past, thought the menu looked good so we gave it a try, and we were pleasantly surprised! It was really lovely, fantastic food, we even ordered more dumplings just to sample some of the other flavours. Good cocktails, lovely staff, definitely worth a visit.

“Pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

We came across this restaurant when looking for a decent meal after a terrible dinner at a tourist trap "Made's Warung". The watermelon soup with crab meat was so delicious that i came back for lunch the next day - without disappointment!! Place really worth recommending to all looking for great food and new flavors.

“great creative dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

This was a great surprise find by just walking by. Had lunch there then been back for dinner 2 more times. Food is a creative use if local flavours combined with noodles and dumplings. Realy good to order a few and share. Friendly staff and great deco and atmosphere. Only 1 issue was with the sangria, as this was a frozen version, which was not stated on the menu, and was expecting something to drink, not spoon. They did change ir for me which was great. Overall had a couple of great nights there. Highly recommend this.

“Fat Gajah, easy to walk past without noticing, but stop, go in & try! Worth it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

Atmosphere was the only thing that lets this place down since it is very open on the street and traffic is constant. However, everything else is superb: the service, food & value.

The service was so attentive, walm, sweet natured Balinese style.

Food was lovely some pictures are attached. I really wanted more but stuck to small portions for lunch. We ordered Jerk Chicken, Coconut & Curry Noodle, Red & White Rice and Tofu Skin.

We also ordered some fresh Lime Juice (you can ask them to keep the sugar syrup separate and add as you desire, and just gorgeous fresh Coconut Juice.

Total for this was only 210,210 rupiah.

Lovely food, definately will return on my next trip.
