“Immerse yourself into the Balinese flavor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

Not only is the food an attraction, but the whole environment and cultural presentation was awesome. Bumbu Bali is a great place to experience the Balinese with all senses.

Taste: Your taste buds are exposed to all sorts of sweet, spicy, sour, and salty aspects of the Balinese experience. Even the rice comes in all sorts of colors. For the first time, I had a papaya soup! I wonder where did that come from.
Sight: Cultural performance of dances,costumes, and restaurant decorations are great. Loved those cute little girls in traditional headwear and costumes.
Sound: Live performances of the traditional musical group enhanced the experience of being Balinese for the evening.
Smell: The superb food through the open kitchen and the aromatic extravaganza of flowers and oil fills the nostrils.

Go try this out and you will enjoy the experience.

“Great cooking course, delicous food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013

We spent the last morning of our honeymoon at the half day cooking course led by a local girl at Bumbu Bali. The class began at the local market where we were introduced to the main ingredients to Balinese cuisine and then we carried onto the restaurant to make at least 5 or 6 traditional Balinese dishes. We really liked the small class size, the group participation in the prep/cooking, and the fact that we received a recipe book and apron to take home. We learned a lot about Balinese cuisine and can honestly say, the dishes we made were our best meal in Bali! I highly recommend this course and restaurant!

“Nasi campur tasty but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2013

Visited here twice,the first time might be 3 years ago,that time I tried nasi campur(veggie),huge and tasty!this time visited again,tried their indian food,ordered chapati,very strange cuz they dont offer curry,or if you want curry,must pay. Chapati is very popular in Malaysia,curry is free,without curry a bit hard to finish it.besides chapati,i ordered banana juice,juice pure like many restaurant standard.I dont recommend their indian food,try their local food,price is reasonable here.Bumbu bali in Ubud in fact no connection to Bumbu bali in Tanjung Benoa, but its ok to use bumbu bali as restaurant's name,cuz it means bali seasonings,it is not a trade mark!

“Great taste Balinese food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

My mom and I had dinner here on our vacation in Ubud. It wasn't so busy at that time, so we got quite a quick service. We had the Nasi Campur and Bebek Betutu which was superb. The food presentations were wonderful. Their taste were great. So authentic. No downside at all. The servers were so friendly and genuinely warm toward us. The location is strategic, near the Ubud Palace and Ubud Market, so it won't be difficult to find them. Overall, such a pleasant dinner experience for us. Surely will visit this restaurant again on our next trip.

“Brilliant Balinese restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

To get a full Bali experience, Bumbu Bali is a must-visit restaurant in Nusa Dua. Expertly prepared Balinese food, provided by superfriendly servers, this little restaurant delivers a brilliant culinary experience. I recommend the Sate Compour, Prawn Papaya Salad as starters, and the Pork BBQ in particular. Wonderful dishes.

Please note that the restaurant provides free taxi service from/to your hotel in Nusa Dua, so give them a call.
