Not value for money.
Ate here after the good reviews on TA. The food tasted nice but the portion size was ridiculously small. The menu has a section called “Small Bites” but I think the owners have a different version of what small is! The prices are not cheap, and we left feeling hungry. Yes we could have ordered more, but after feeling “ripped off” at what was provided, you have to call it quits and cut your losses. One skewer of chicken with 3 small bite size pieces, was $3.00 and came with one lemon wedge. Obviously someone is using the tourists here to make some huge profits. Left and went across the road to Vietnamese, where 2 Pho soups cost less than 1 chicken skewer. If you are dieting and have money to throw away, then One Eyed jacks is the place to go.

Another recommendation - another gem!
Another recommendation - another gem experienced. One of the cultural experiences that I never get tired of is the welcome that diners receive when entering a Japanese restaurant. In a staggered chorus, everyone from the service staff, to the chefs, will look up and shout, "Irasshaimase!", meaning "Welcome to the store!", or "Come on in!" And the team at One Eyed Jack's do it well! It's my last night in Bali, and I'm prepared to spend a little extra and treat myself. Happy Days! - it's Happy Hour when I arrive around 6:30pm. Thanks - I'll have two San Miguel Pale Ale's for the price of one (Rp50k). If you want to eat more cheaply, then include one the bowl options, as they will probably be more filling. However, I love to try as many dishes as possible when I dine out, so small plates and tapa style portions suit me fine, and Japanese cuisine is full of such options. The menu is divided into sections: Bites/Tacos/Raw/Bao/Small Plates/Yakitori & Bowls. I manage to down 7 plates on my own, plus 4 bottles of beer (seems rude not to at Happy Hour prices). Each dish is simply presented - without unnecessary garnishes, and flavours are delicately balanced. I savour each mouthful, and take in the casual vibe of the room. The decor is chic Japanese, with lots of interesting photos adorning the walls. The ones near the bathroom entrance feature elaborate yakuza tattoos, which I think most people find fascinating. There is a polished concrete bar that runs almost full length of the room, and allows you to sit and chat with some of the staff while they prepare dishes. You can also look into the kitchen and observe food on the chargrill. The staff are all very pleasant, and accommodating. When I booked online, I enquired about coming in before the earliest available time slot at 6:30, and I received a prompt reply welcoming me to come in earlier if I wished to. So my 7 dishes, and 4 beers at half price come to Rp591k (AUS$56), which I think is great value for a really tremendous night out. Hard to see you being disappointed by this place, so get yourselves along there and enjoy the experience!

Really great food
The food was really good. Would specifically recommend the soft crap and shrimp tempora. The tempora is so addictive, we called it cocaine popcorn. It is pricey for the area, particularly for wine. Overall, would highly recommend as a great alternative to local/western cuisine.
