Sorry Rick Stein but this place must have gone seriously downhill since you visited whilst writing your book Far Eastern Odyssey. Truly disappointing. Restaurant dark dingy and looks out over a rubbish heap. Staff can't ready be bothered. Food - nothing special. Crackling - thin, small.

Food was tasty but release the birds that are tied down in the garden :(
We liked the food, it was cheap and cheerful and tasted authentic BUT I will never go back while there are large birds (parrots/galahs) tied up with chains to small poles. It is not nice and any good person does not want to see animals kept in this manner. It is not cool, let them go! I think this place has got a bit too popular and touristy, staff don't seem to have much interest in their customers.

Tastes just like lechon!
This was right across Ubud Palace. Surprisingly, there weren't a lot of people, considering that it was lunch time. I think it helped that they now have 3 branches in Ubud and they're not too far from each other. I ordered the special so I can have a taste of everything that they have on the menu. This meal includes rice, fresh vegetables, pork roll, fried meat and sausage with pork skin for only IDR45,000. Babi guling is like their version of lechon and tastes a lot like Cebu lechon. I liked it, except that the sausage and the vegetables were too spicy for me. I just tasted some of it and then left it on my plate. Totally not their fault, I'm a bit of a picky eater.
