This was our first time at the restaurant for our wedding anniversary. We rang to get a table with in half a hour they returned the call and booked us in for half hr time. They are a busy restaurant so it was great to get a table. We tried the tasting platters for 1 serve which they call combination plate for 1 As we decided to share half of each they gave us side plates (*sharing plates) so we could get some of everything. They were really Nice and I personally loved the Vegan one more than the other combo one Staff were friendly, fast to take orders and mains were quick to arrive, the desserts took some time to arrive as they were busy with a party downstairs. The meal was delicious. Then manager topped up our water and was very friendly. We will definitely be back again.

We chose the Campur Tasting Plates one each. (Campur is the Balinese equivalent to a Japanese bento box or tasting plate)
