“Great service and atmosphere, but very ordinary food.”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

My partner had researched the range of restaurants in Seminyak and heard great things about it from friends and we were very excited to try this rave reviewed restaurant. We read we needed to book ahead as tables filled up very quickly. We enquired to reserve a table for 3 people and weren't able to get in until our last night in Seminyak (we spent 4 nights in total), it was amazing how busy this place was, we were very happy to get in and not to miss out.

On arrival we were delighted at the mood and decor of Sarong, it has been well set out and has either outside or roof covered tables (it is all open air) filled with beautiful furnishing, comfortable couches and soft lighting. The waiting service on arrival and throughout the night were very attentive and pleasant.

The prices are quite reasonable across the menu at Sarong.

The menu looked good, we had to ask a few questions which were answered satisfactorily. We ordered a few dishes for starter one being the Wagyu beef perkedel (beef cake) which was not a good choice. 4 large croquet like patties came out, the tasteless wagyu beef was found in only small amounts through the dry filling. Not nice, we left some over so we didn't spoil our appetites for the main. The shrimp dumplings were ok, but not outstanding as we expected.

For mains again disappointing, we ordered the Wagyu Penang curry which was overpowered with Lemongrass and too much salt and the Wagyu was like a stringy pot roast. The Dahl was very salty and could not be finished. We felt quite bad as we don't usually leave food behind, it has to be unpalatable for this to happen, and it was.

The Pimms Collins cocktail was nice, the ambience fantastic and the staff cold not be faulted.

Maybe we ordered the wrong things? Maybe it was an off night?

If we were able to get a reservation earlier we would have liked to have given it a second chance on this trip, maybe next time.

So many rave reviews can't be wrong, can they?

We had far better food at several other places in Seminyak which I have recommend on TA.

“"Oh what a beautiful evening..."”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Oh what a beautiful setting with the stunning decor, matched with the best food I had in Bali recently.
Its a little bit pricier but worth very cent. Whilst I am not one for cocktails my friends assured me they were fantastic.
Service was excellent - Strongly recommended
