Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Having walked past this restaurant countless amounts of time and having been told how amazing the food was, it took three visits to bali before we visited and realised we had been missing out. The food and service were amazing, and the greeting on arrival...made you feel welcomed. The styling of the restaurant was lovely. We couldn't fault anything. It's very popular, so I'd suggest booking in. We will definitely be back when we visit bali again.More

Food was great & plenty of it! Probably my favourite satay of our stay so far! It was nice to see everything happening in the kitchen and the staff preparing your meals. Would go back!

This is one of many visits to Bumbu Bali tonight as we make a special effort to have at least one dinner per trip jo matter where we stay in Bali. We were lucky enough to book the Bumbu Bali cooking school many years ago...which led us to the amazing place. (Cannot recommend the cooking school highly enough - definitely worth booking!) As always we cannot fault a single aspect of the restaurant, food or service at Bumbu. Heinz runs a fantastic restaurant and we always feel welcomed and part of the Bumbu family every time we visit. The food is amazing, and always consistently great. Please visit if you are hoping to really try traditional Balinese cuisine. The rijsttafel is absolutely amazing and would recommend ordering when you visit. The desserts served with this are delicious! The staff at Bumbu are always very friendly and make our visits memorable. The addition of being picked up and dropped of if you are staying in the local area around Nusa Dua is definitely a bonus. We will visit again and are looking forward to it!More

So happy to be back at my favorite restaurant for authentic Balinese food here at the Jl. Pratama. Delicious flavors which you will find no where else here in Bali. This time we went for the nasi campur and some mixed sate dishes. Wow, what...a joy for your taste buds, sedap yah !! Also a great service from the staff with a big smile. Look forward to come back very soon. Terima kasih & sampai jumpa. AlexanderMore

Great Indonesian food, friendly service but needs fans. Attended with my wife and young children. Very authentic Indonesian food, large portions, but a bit pricey. Food options for young fussy eaters not great. So best to go here without kids (if possible). Very hot inside...not enough airflow. But still worth going here, I think our children wrecked the night for us, like they wreck most things ha ha. I give this restaurant 3 out of 5 Nasi Campurs.More

Real taste of Bali! Every guest receives a personal welcome greeting with a fragrant frangipani flower offered to tuck behind your ears. It is worth a visit just to try the Nasi Campur… best I have had in a long while. Will go again soon.

Loved the food, service and atmosphere of this restaurant. Everyone receives a warm welcome and recommendations are provided if you are unsure what will suit your taste preferences. Beef rendang is a must and the food comes out on a large tray all at once....Pricing is reasonable and the service is efficient and friendly.More

We got a Gojek here to escape the overpriced menus at the Nusa Dua hotel - Wow - what a wonderful experience! Delicious Indonesian / Balinese food. We ordered 3 dishes to share (from experience the portion sizes we'd been having were on the small...side, but we were hungry - and there was plenty - what a feast! The chicken satay is served to your table on a mini bbq with coals. We'd made the chicken in banana leaf ( Ayam Betutu) at a cooking class earlier on our stay, and sampled it here. Everything was delicious - and it was served with complimentary salads. One of the best meals we had during our two weeks in Bali - and we had some amazing food. So good - we went back! Highly recommended!More

I’m not sure what the owners would say but it is a very busy restaurant and one of the best in Bali. There are many other smaller restaurants that would probably suit him better in the area if he wants to eat that way.
