Booked a dinner seating for 6:30 here for our first night in Bali. When we arrived we were greeted with a smile and shown to our table within a few minutes. Decor reminded me of an old school style Boudoir mixed with a contemporary bali furninshing. Staff were very attentive and made sure you always had a drink filled. We tried a fair few cocktails but the ones i can remember were the Polish Donkey, The Mango and Pomegranate Mojito and the Rockstar (among others) - all were equally as refreshing and tasty at around $12 each. Entrees came between $7-$11 and offered some south east asian delights. We had the Pork Belly (you MUST try this - no excuses) and the salt and pepper squid. Staff were a pleasure to talk with and offered some great recommendations. Mains were between $10-$20 and from the very vast selection we tried the Vietnamese caramelised duck, butter chicken and naan bread. Mains were exceptional and left us feeling very full and satisfied. At this point we thought we might need to roll out the door so could not fit any dessert in (a real shame because the dessert menu looked deliciously appealing!). Final bill came to around $160 (please note all my prices are converted to AUD - the Sarong menu is in Rupiah). For a meal (and multiple cocktails) similar to the quality and quantity of this in Australia would set you back $300 easily. I cannot wait to go back to Sarong to try the other dishes on the menu. A restaurant worth visiting!

We went to Sarong with some relatively high expectations as reviews on Tripadvisor have been nothing short of fantastic and friends have recommended the same. The place looked beautiful and the staff were attentive and great. We ordered some entree which were fantastic as well. Unfortunately for us, most of the main dishes would be spicy and we ended up getting the butter chicken (which was again great) but didn't get to really enjoy the lamb that we ordered (it was spicy and the accompanying sauce was too salty). We later found out from a friend that the menu looked different from what it was before. We were also seated outdoors and had lots of mosquitoes attacking us throughout - fortunately the staff brought us some mosquito repellent to spray on.

In summary, the place is beautiful and quite romantic. Food was amazing if you like your hot and spicy (a bit more variety would have made it perfect) and make sure you get a seat inside.

Our first stay in this locality and we were aiming to explore some of the restaurants close to our villa. As we were already armed with earlier reviews we had high expectations. We reserved a table in the morning to return for dinner.

The combination of indoor/outdoor setting was impressive and the staff were very helpful. The first challenge is the menu. There are so many dishes to choose from - a variety of many Asian cuisines. We departed from our usual approach of selecting all dishes from the same cuisine and chose a mix of Indian and Thai dishes. The staff moderated our enthusiasm for ordering too many dishes - we were so pleased they did. Portions were generous and we were challenged to get anywhere near finishing them all. The variety of flavours was a truly amazing experience.

We only visited once on this stay, but it would probably take several visits to do justice to the large menu. We look forward to our return

This restaurant was rated in the west Australian newspaper and on channel 7 tv as one of the best in Bali and they were not wrong. The restaurant is beautiful and tranquil. The staff are attentive and friendly. The food is to die for. We went twice in one week we liked it so much. Can highly recommend the chicken betel leaves which were the most exciting thing my mouth has ever experienced. These are spicy though so watch out. Other things to recommend from the menu were scallop and crispy duck, lamb korma curry, DIY duck dumplings and chicken stir fry. You have to book in advance but you can do this online.

We ate at Sarong on a Sunday evening. We enjoyed the food and service was good. we were too hot and no fan nearby also mosquitos biting our legs. We didn't complain but felt diner comfort wasn't a priority for them.
