Outstanding service, some food are great some are just okay, ambience is amazing! Went here for lunch and dinner, all servers are super friendly and helpful. Shoutout to Dian, she was really nice and knowledgeable. We came right before the last order but they were...still serving us excellently. Mba Dian even introduced us to the new bar (L’atelier by Cyril Kongo) and sent us there. Food variety is not that much but most of the food taste great. The tempura udon is just meh but would recommend the Spicy Tuna Maki, Houba Wagyu and the dessert, Green Sundae. Must try the mocktail drink, Matcha Thyme Mojito, very refreshing! Best restaurant in Apurva Kempinski!More

Super delicious and fresh food. My 5 years old daughter loves the tempura udon very much. She finished the whole bowl. Service was fabulous and impeccable. Spotlessly clean and paid attention to details. Devi was the most friendly and attentive waiter who greeted us and...made sure everything was amazing throughout dinner. She Constantly coming back to refill dan to check if we needed something else. She even gave my daughter free of charge strawberry ice cream. Such a nice gesture that leaves lasting impression. We could definitely tell the difference when service from the heart is delivered. We ordered their signature appetizer, dragon roll, katsu don, tempura udon and super delicious teriyaki chicken. Definitely a place to go if you are staying at Apurva Kempinski Bali or around the area.More
