“Great food, price can be dodgy”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Its a great experience eating here and the people at the stalls are really friendly.

The food is really good, just make sure that you barter the price a bit otherwise you can end up paying more then you would at a nice restaurant on the island for the same thing.

Definitely worth checking out!

“A real surprise, tasty, well presented and very clean”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

No wonder when we arrived at the night market it was buzzing with people. A great display of wonderful Indonesian food... Sates, chicken..fish..it was all there.. A lovely display of dishes for such incredible low prices. It was clean, well displayed and friendly..
A wonderful dish of nasi goring, sate for $ 2 or 3 dollars.. Sitting on big tables...also great for single people to mix easy with others.

“The Best place to eat in Gili T”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

If you are a snobby first world tourist who will puke at the sight of open food carts, discarded waste, smelly market, canines abound - It is best to avoid this place.

If you are an open minded traveler intent on enjoying the local culture and atmosphere with some of the best food offered, sea breeze in your head and friends to accompany - Look no further.

This market could possibly provide, The best cheap live sea food grill in the world. At 25,000 IDR (roughly 138 INR) you could get a juicy local fresh sea fish grilled with masala accompanied with extra sauce and a portion of rice. The stalls are all separately owned with common seating at the center. Pick what you want to eat, order and get all your friends on one table. simple as that.

If you like pancakes (the Asian way), the cart at the entrance has the better pan cake than the one at the exit and hence also sells out pretty fast. You may want to buy beer/alcohol from the store in the adjacent alley (just before the market) and bring it with you.

There seems to be no fixed timing. They start when the sun starts to set and finish around 10.30 pm. There is some sort of coordination with the larger bars on the island to allow for coexistence.

“Eat here while in Gili T!”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

By far the best dining experience in Gili T!

We had to wait a while in the queue but the place has a great atmosphere, everyone there is there with the right attitude(!); to try new things and share tables with other travellers and generally get along and enjoy the experience :) (If this isn't you, you may not enjoy the market!)

The variety is great; get a bowl of mixed choices; veg, rice, etc or fresh fish or satay skewers; I recommend the fresh fish :) CERTAINLY don't miss the 'desserts' counter, it's fantastic!
