Surprise delight from guidebook
We saw the listing in Lonely Planet and was not sure what sort of local restaurant it would be. It is simple but clean and I love the open kitchen with all the ingredients on view. The service was great, staff were friendly (even got a photo bomb!)but the food was superb! They were reviewed for their charcoal grill but the Babi Guling was the highlight. Pig in all sorts of ways but soooooo delicious! We were so full but ate everything anyway. Totally recommend this place!

Stumbled upon this place when out looking for somewhere to eat lunch. The look of this place is quite unlike any of the more ‘westernised’ restaurants in the locality - no problem with us. Clearly a family run business where preparation of the food takes place in front of you in the kitchen which is adorned with fresh veg. The menu appears to be authentic Indonesian with a wide variety made from fresh ingredients. I see from other reviews that some believe that this place is expensive but it is by far the cheapest place we have eaten in in two weeks holidaying in Bali! The food itself was cooked freshly - I had satay chicken with rice - cooked by the road in a barbecue. The ‘coals’ were coconut husks and gave the chicken and peanut sauce a beautiful flavour - all 10 skewers! My wife had a chicken noodle soup( can’t remember name of it) and she was delighted with it. All in all we loved this place - a dimly lit, rustic compact place. My fear is that through our desire to further westernise places like Bali to suit our tastes, gems like this place may be lost. I sincerely hope not. All in all the cost for lunch was around equivalent of £9 Sterling. An absolute steal!! Will be going back.

Great authentic experience
We were recommended this place by a friend. When we arrived we were a little anxious to go in as it didn’t look so flash. When we got in the kitchen was very basic and looked home style. However, we ordered the mie goreng and the giant prawns. We absolutely loved our meals! True authentic experience! Beer was super cold too! Don’t let the look of this place put you off. They lose one star due to how smoky it was inside from the traditional bbq outside. Despite the best efforts of the staff to try and keep the smoke out, our eyes were burning!! But great meal!!!
