Past visit's to Naughty Nuri's had left me with an impression good enough to recommend this restaurant to a number of friends and family, however how things have changed. The front of house staff are still fantastic, as are all the staff attentive as they scurry around like little red shirted ants assisting to the whims of the patrons. However the place has seemed to got a fast food vibe about it, and I wonder if besides the novelty of the ribs and the staff gathering around a table and chanting shake, shake, shake as they shake and pour a cocktail maybe all it has going for it now? The patronage previously had been a mix of western, local and visiting asians, however on this particular night was 90% asian tourist, when a large tourist bus of asian guests pulled up outside it reiterated how word of mouth had made this restaurant so popular. The food! Well, if you're not having the ribs I probably wouldn't bother, just wanting a good salad and tuna which on previous visits had been very tasty, was bland and unimaginative. The cocktail was average for want of a better word, and the hustle and bustle, guests jumping around taking happy snaps and smoke from the grill was enough to say thanks for the memories Naughty Nuri's but I wont be seeing you again.

Initially, i didn't know for sure that this place is the ubud branch's, but decided to go here anyway because Ubud its too far from Kuta. Fortunately i wasn't wrong.
I love the atmosphere & interior, not too fancy but looks fun with all those unique pig things. Great for casual group or family dining at night.
The pork ribs itself has a mouthwatering delicious taste but not really really the best in the world (not in a negative meaning) I would definetely go back if I go to Bali next time.
One thing is, I think the potato wedges are a little overpriced (and oversalted) around IDR 25,000++

WOW, I'd heard about this place and its infamous martinis and ribs and no visit to Bali is complete without a night here, went with friends and got a table street side, it's just fantastic watching people go by, he staff at work. The ribs ARE amazing cooked right there in front of you but it's the martinis that we went for, one lows your head off, two ANSI was almost on the floor ANSI can usually take a fair it of alcohol. They are lethal but it all adds upto be an incredible night, fabulous atmosphere, react food, amazing drinks

Whilst in Bali recently staying at a fabby villa on Jl. Batu Belig, a mate told me of this rib joint just along the same road. He mentioned that Anthony Bourdain had rated it the best ribs and Martini's outside of Manhattan.

Okay - this is a big call but I can now report that the man was sooo right.

A group of ravenous lads arrived outside this "rib shack" at 8pm on a Thursday night to be greeted by a queue of 25 people salivating on the aroma of fresh ribs and steak being grilled right at the entrance (nice touch as one you smell this you will queue for ever). 20 mins late we were led to a shared table and immediately ordered entrees of nachos and quesadilas along with a round of dry martinis. The "shake shake"dance was performed on the arrivals of the drinks and boy were they dry.... as a guys who likes a vodka martini as dry as the Sahara I was in heaven. When the "entrees" arrived we realised that we were in for a feed fest. No Nouvoeux Cuisine here just large portions all round. The Ribs when they arrived were superb. A big rack with the meat falling off the bone. Topped off with mash and sides, this was a carnivore's paradise.

Okay, its not fine dining, its not romantic, its not subdued but if you want a fun noisy night out with a group of friends with super food and awesome drinks, don't go any where else.
