This place was the best little warung in Bali, we walked past and both did a double take as it was so busy. So we did the usual Trip Advisor and decided to come back for our tea.
Wow we felt so healthy - we went for the freshly blended juices ( carrot ginger apple wheatgrass type thing) and a chicken mixed salad - this is one thing we miss being in SEasia is the variety of salads - but this place did them all, watermelon and watercress, pear walnut rocket and parmesan, beetroot carrot sunflower seeds and yoghurt ( I think cant remember exactly) but they were huge and came with fresh warm brown bread. and they were 30 - 35,000rps.

They do a great menu - a specials board with the usual Indonesian and fushion dishes - currys, stir frys, then they do a set menu - where you can chose 'set a' - say 2veg dishes, 1 meat and 1 rice from a fresh selection of homemade dishes - this seems very popular and with the locals ( cant believe some other reviewer gave them 1 because they had run out of dishes!!)
and then they do all the salads juices and Panini's. I went for the black pepper beef Panini and it was well fit!!! melted mozzarella on yellow mustard with stir fried black pepper beef and a little side salad. We also went for pork and potato curry with rice.
Bless them they don't even charge you the extra tax you get everywhere else so our meals were so cheap like 125,000 for 3 mains bottle of water, 2 coffees and a big piece of cake.
I have never in my life been back to the same place twice on consecutive nights but we did here - we went 3days in a row because you just couldn't beat the fresh quality and the price.
Yes at times they were getting busy - but people should be mindful of that and be gracious - its not a race. They work very hard in there, the lady was very sweet and never forgot anything off our order and actually we never had to wait long.
Would go back again tomorrow if I was in Sanur, the only other place that came near was Bali Budda that too had a fabulous healthy menu - but once they whacked all the taxes on it was twice as expensive.

The beef dish is a knockout - but all delicious! Make sure you book in the afternoon of night you want to go... just drop in on the way back from the beach.

I come here again and again and love the paninis! It is all fresh and made with care and love. Therefore I do not mind to wait a bit longer if the place it full.
Prices are among the cheapest in Sanur.
The smoothies and health drinks are really rich in content and without water.
The staff is friendly and helpful and speak a little english.
Warung Kecil is still one of my favorite places in Sanur!!

it was very busy when i and my sister came for lunch. the Ac was on, but it was not cold at all. it was totally hot and crowded. they serve indonesian food, but i was not in luck. it was only rice and some veggie available, so we decided to order the panini, which i heard their panini is great.
and yes, the panini is fine (just fine not great). the best of our visit was, they forgot to serve our mango juice but the kept it listed on the bills (we were frustrated to remind them for what we order, not just the mango juice, we order the rice and veggie, but they didn't serve it until we ask about it, then we choose to cancel it).
yes they serve food with low budget, but the service is big NO NO!
i am willing to pay more to get the service. i visited them, just because many people recommend me to try. but No more.

Thank you very much for your review,
i am so sorry, for your bad experience. The nasi campur indeed is very popular and in some days, it is sold out so fast. The panini, also favorites among expat and indonesian. i am sorry if you found it sub standard.
regarding the incident of the mango juice that is unacceptable , and i am so sorry for what happen. I am so sorry that our team ruin your expectation which was set so high due to recommendation you have. Most of our costumer are happy with our food and service when it is compare to the price we charge. and most of our costumers praise our service, and our clientele are returning customers. So again, i am sorry if on that particular day the service is sub standard.
But i understand that Warung Kecil might not your type of hangout place.
If you would ever come back to warung kecil, come a bit early before the hungry crowd finish the side dishes of the nasi campur, and before the hungry crowd coming. the food and the drink will be in the house.

This place is very small, so you will be lucky to get a seat, but well worth the wait, great food for a great price
