Me and my husband went for dinner and ordered the Grand Rijstaffel. It was worth every penny as all the 20 dishes were amazing! Absolutely loved the cakes and the dessert in the end. The ambience of the restaurant is very nice which made our dinner more amazing!

Dropped in as we are staying at the Kana. Fab food, presentation and staff. Well priced with meals being from 30 - 100k. Recommend the Mie goreng and the satay stick combo. Yummy!

very disappointing. Looks great from pictures but food is vastly overpriced, no flavour and not as described - the 'Balinese sauces' seem to consist of small bowls of sambal from a jar and nothing else. Most meat is poultry and is on the bone, small in size and deep fried - appearing much as badly cooked KFC from next door!... More

The food was delicious and we really enjoyed the variety of the different dishes. It was a great opportunity to try so many Indonesian delicacies. The restaurant itself is so tranquil and peaceful.

The place is not very crowded, but it is a good place to chill with some light Balinese music in the back ground. You should definitely try the Ox tail. It's very good here.

Indonesian restaurant, offers a wonderful selection of authentic home-cooked dishes from around the archipelago. Premium local ingredients are utilised, sauces are freshly made and spices are ground by hand.

Our signature Grand Ristaffel is a veritable feast introducing a generous assortment of 20 dishes, spread across the table in a celebration of the many different specialties of the far-flung Indonesian islands.

Star Anise Restaurant is conveniently located streetside in front of the hotel and is open to outside guests. Its substantial size makes it ideal for large groups and parties. Dinner is complemented by a Balinese dance performance three times a week.
