On the 29th of July 2018 at 8pm my girlfriend and I shared one final meal before we parted ways, a purple fruit bowl and a coffee from The Merchant. After a teary farewell I returned to my hotel in kuta and 3 hours later I had some of the worst symptoms of food poisoning in my 32 years on this planet. Both diarrhoea and vomiting simultaneously was almost comical. What made me look this awful establishment up on Google to write this review is the absolute rage I later felt thinking about my poor girlfriend stuck on a flight, with a huge layover in KL, and a transfer flight back to HK, all the while being as sick as I was; an absolute nightmare. And to top the whole ordeal off: we paid more than double what you'd normally pay for a fruit bowl because it's in the airport. I've lived in Bali for 5 weeks now, eaten in some of the cheapest warungs one can find, but The Merchant is the first to give me any sort of illness. So bravo. Whoever was the duty manager on the evening of 29/7/18 should get sacked and I expect a written apology from the owner once I've phoned in. Vincent

Friendly hostess, decent food
The friendly hostess cajoles you into taking a seat and eating here. Balinese grill chicken is a nice way to bid adieu to Bali till the next visit.

Nice airport spot
Popped in as we were very early for our flight. Both got pasta carbonara which was nice but both commented on how it could have been hotter. Got the strawberry milkshake too which was nice as it was made with real strawberries which is always a nice bonus.
