“Dont Do it”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

We chose this restaurant as we wanted to treat ourselves and the kids to a nice night out with great food, to date we had been enjoying some reasonable (ok) street food. We based the choice on all the wonderful reviews on Gosha here at Trip Advisor, we were not deterred by the odd negative as it seemed mainly a "thumbs Up" from everyone. Well the wait for the food was so long we were able to wander the streets to bide the time and once the food arrived entrees and mains together it was to say the least a major let down. Frog legs dry, curries tasted like an old eggs, seafood was far from fresh, and the general meal sizes were like a Mcdonalds kids menu..so $85 later...i would have much rather been at the $2.50 nasi goreng hut, anyway...lets just say there was more entertainment at the gay bars across the street then on our plates

“Food had been better”
Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

I went for dinner here when visiting bali previously and I had a great time with fabulous, tasty food. However this time I was a bit disappointed with the food, however the spring rolls were delicious and lived up to my past recollection.

Our first time in Bali and it was amazing! We had the clam soup for entree, huge serving (two serves fed four), delicious. For mains we had two whole chickens, the chicken curry and the pork mushroom with avocado salad, all very delicious! Awesome cocktails served in huge coconuts! The photos speak for themselves; we will be going back!

“A Good Place Gone bad”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

On a previous visit to Bali in 2012, I gave a good review on Gosha's.
Hoping to repeat the experience we had dinner there 29/12/2013. There were 6 of us, 4 adults and 2 children (5, 8).
The grilled chicken was dry and overcooked, and the other dishes including the pepper steak was practically cremated. Our complaint to the Manager got nowhere and to add insult to injury, he practically demanded a tip.
My suggestion to them is to sack the Manager and install someone who takes an interest in their food and how it is prepared.
We won't be going there again and we are making sure that all our Bali bound friends are aware as well.
There are plenty of nearby restaurants which offer better value and attentive staff.
