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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Terrible terrible food Bland , underseasoned and sub par food This place is to be avoided at all costs for food Perhaps okay for a drink f you want to hear a band playing louder than AC/DC The highlight of this spectacularly disastrous food was...my sons order of chicken pad Thai It come close to $20 aussie dollars with tax and service charge It was a tiny tiny portion of of pad Thai and the chicken on it , was combined to be no larger than a single chicken nugget The worst value meal we had in Bali in our 10 day stay Complete rip off I should have made a scene but my wife asked me not to This pad Thai serving was basically saying a “ f##k you” to the scammed tourists who had the misfortune of entering this restaurant Avoid at all costsMore

The food , presentation and ambiance of Bamboo is excellent a great place to enjoy a meal , they have live music there as well wich is okay , but given the size of the venue was too loud and became difficult to talk with...and hear other people.More

We ordered two boneless rib eyes today & one of them was terrible, the other not much better. Mine was really chewy & full of gristle, my husband's was really chewy. We go there specifically for steaks, usually really good. My family & I have...gone there for years. When asked how the meal was, I had to share that I was disappointed. They offered me a piece of cheesecake, I said thank you, but didn't go there for cake. Explained that I'm not happy, then they gave us 20% off my meal. I think I should have got my meal free, or at least half price or something, seeing as it was terrible. $42 with tax for that load of rubbish. Not very good customer service Bamboo. I had a load of gristle in a bowl & couldn't attempt to eat the rest as my jaw was aching from trying to eat the first half. Disgusting.More

Tonight I went to Bamboo Restaurant as we normally do every trip. Food was fantastic as always. Service was fantastic, They had a magician there entertaining the kids. I took a few videos on my phone… paid bill… left a well deserved tip….approximately 1 hour...later I realised I had left my iPhone there, Ran back and straight away they recognised me and returned my phone. He refused to take any money for returning my phone. Guys… thank you so much…your honesty is appreciated and will not be forgotten. Having been to Bali 37 times, your restaurant will always be on my list. Thank youMore

Had been here some years ago, still as good. Big breakfast was superb, as close to an English breakfast as I guess you could get here. Lovely setting in the middle of Kuta. Imagine it Rocks after hours. Will be back, after hours?

Firstly please advise customers what’s on the special board . We were unlucky our friends got the last seafood platter. But lucky the place has the sports on channels , not like steaming it like other bars. Customer service was great , the slushys got...me hydrated and food was great. Entrees were a bit ordinary thoe. Definitely get there early before your sport starts or they may take bookings. Enjoyed the vibe , everyone was happy. My snapper was bloody delicious, fresh from the sea.More

Visited 3-4 times in August to watch Women's WC games, eat, drink and be social. All objectives achieved with good screens, solid food offerings and cold beer. Staff are good and tables can be reserved for a refundable 100IDR.

Hi, from memory the price of local nasi goreng was over 150k, your best going to local warungs for nasi goring. Bintang bottle was around 50k I think. great location, good bar but prices have went up.
