Definitely unique !!
The first time we went it was closed (in the evening) so we went back the next day at around 2pm. The place is really original for us "Westerners" since we can eat freshly killed cobra, monkeys, cobra's heart, bats as well as giant lizards. It was not that expensive considering the products they had. I personally loved it (even though I don't believe in the "medicinal" values).

Not for the squeamish, faint hearted, or weak stomached
Istana Raja Kobra, or palace of the king cobra, is part restaurant, part snake skin goods and medicine shop. It is located on the Ngurah Rai bypass just outside Kuta town. They have on their menu, food that most wouldn't even want to try. They serve soups, Satay or fried Cobra, Python, Monkey, Bat and more. I first visited the place on my visit to Bali in 2009, then again last year. The python was the tastiest. Of course, this sort of food doesn't come cheap.
