Description: KO Restaurant & Cocktail Lounge, is an award-winning and stylish venue, long popular on the island for its authentic and contemporary Japanese cuisine. Teppanyaki promises an interactive culinary experience, where chefs cook grilled Japanese specialities at two sit-up Teppanyaki counters, entertaining with theatrical culinary flair on an open grill right before your eyes. The Restaurant offers an informal yet sophisticated dining room, the perfect place to savour the freshest sushi, sashimi and tempura, and an assortment of Japanese salads, meats, fish dishes and other delicacies. The Cocktail Lounge is a relaxed spot with chilled-out music for pre or post-dinner drinks. It is the place to indulge in an extensive menu of Sake-based cocktails, and hot and cold Sakes, from our exclusive range, as well as a selection of premier Japanese beers. Food can be had here or outside on an intimate Japanese-style garden terrace.

Ko is located in the grounds of the intercontinental resort. The restaurant & grounds were just amazing. It was like being in Japan. The staff were friendly as you would expect from top end restaurant in Bali.
The atmosphere was really good.
The chef was very engaging & cooked our food spot on. His cooking skills were great to watch & he entertained us with his knife skills.
The food was fresh & plenty of..

Very authentic and well designed restaurant. Setting and ambiance was perfect to suit the dining experience. Food was delicious, and cooked fresh in front of you. Chefs were trained like stars putting up a show every time a dish was prepared. It was very entertaining and really enhanced the dining experienced. Loved it!

Very slow service and very slow cooking.
After the complimentary burrimundi dish and our drinks we waited an age. It was if the Chef had gone on a break.
The food when we ate was good but not that extra special you would expect at Teppanyaki.
It was also v expensive for what it was and not good value for money.

We decided to spend one night dining at the InterCon, and because a lovely young girl - Ria called past the breakfast restaurant and gave it a good speal. We dined late- 830pm, and the initial greeting and cocktails were fantastic. Hubby had the sushi platter, and because I don't eat seafood I was able to order from the other menu. We waited quite a while for our meals to come, and considering I not had tempura veggies and teriyaki chicken it couldn't have been waiting on my dish.
All in all the meal was good, it's not the best sushi my hubby has had but it was ok. Our waitress was fantastic and ver accommodating. Would recommend if you need something different to Balinese food.
