Don't waste you money
Went here for dinner & the staff were lovely but the food was terribly bland & below average. There are so many fantastic places to eat in Benoa and this definitely is not one of them. The chicken was so dry, the vegetables overcooked and the drinks were warm and all overpriced.

Very Poor Value and Cooking
Apart from the nice decor and spacious sittings there were little else to compliment this restaurant! All the plates, bowls and tea cups were turned upside down on all the tables, an extremely unwelcome sign for a Chinese restaurant, the waitress was unable to explain why! We had broccoli with scallops, crispy spicy squids and salted egg yolk with whole prawns, all served with disappointment! The broccoli were huge chunks and overcooked to limpy, the king scallops were tough and chewy; the batter coating for the prawns and squids were really sad and soft, crispiness must have escaped through an opened window, and the salted egg yolk that was part of this dish must have also wondered off somewhere else, for I had to try very very hard to taste it or finding small evidence of its existence in this dish. The squids were even more disappointing. One would have thought Bali being surrounded by water it would be easy to source a good supply of young squids, instead of tough old rubberised ones, and surprisingly the accompanied garlic pieces that can be overcooked escaped cooking totally and served raw! When I noted a Bintang beer costing IDR30 in The Butchers Club, but they were charging IDR35 in this eatery, I thought the final bill might not be cheap! It came to almost IDR800k for two. I suggest you make your own sandwiches or pot noodles, instead of wasting your money!! The 1 star was for the attentive waitress.

We were fancying Chinese one night and decided to go to chopsticks as we thought it would be a really nice place, although a little more pricey we thought it would be worth it. First of all when I arrived I asked if it was still open 21:30 to which she said yes. My boyfriend went to the ATM and I ordered a drink for myself. After bringing the drink she tells me last orders are at 21:45 and kitchen closes at 10. When my boyfriend arrived the waitress was standing there waiting while we rushed to pick something from the menu without even being able to look at it properly. When the duck came to the table it wasn't even hot to which we complained and asked for it to be hotter, the rice was full of oil, i know a lot of food is fried and we were fine with that but this rice was just too much, the waitress never came over to check on us once even though we were the only people in there, instead she watched impatiently trying to get us out like they all just wanted to go home. When we got the bil like most restaurants where we don't paying it they had put a service charge! Which we were unhappy to pay as we had literally no service and bad food! We asked them to romove it from the bill to which they did a little but still left a service charge! Would never go back there, you can eat so much nicer for so much cheaper elsewhere with better service!
