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.

Based on my reading of TripAdvisor ratings, we chose for Kayo Manis located at easy walking distance from our hotel Kejora Suites..... and it turned out to be a fine choice. A warm welcome was followed by a fine dinner at a great price. Satisfied,...we headed "home" for some rest and our next day in Sanur. I don't normally eat steak very often, as the preparation often leaves much to be desired as well. Definitely not the case here. Owner / cook visited our table to also check if we were happy with the dishes provided.More

Greated very warmly when we arrived by taxi. We were asked if we wanted smoking or non-smoking or the air condtioned room. We were then shown the drinks menu and the specials board. We were then served an amuse bouche of a stuffed mushroom which...was very tasty. We were then treated to bread board with a peppered cheese dip which was delicious. We both chose the prawns in a cheese sauce to begin with. Super tasty. My husband choose the steak and the chef very kindly made him a blue cheese sauce to go with it. I choose the fish wrapped in bacon in a cream sauce. Every dish was beautifully presented and was served hot and unlike other restaurants we have been to in Bali, they were served together. We then had the complimentary lemon sorbet. The chef came out twice to speak with us which we found a really nice touch. The waitresses were very friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble for them. We will definitely return.More

Kayo Manis certainly lived up to its positive reviews. We both ordered the entree special of prawns on cheese sauce and the balance of flavours was perfect although I would happily have eaten more prawns. We were given a small taster that was great and...complimentary bread. The chicken dish was great as was my barramundi with a delicious sauce. The free lemon sorbet ate the end was refreshing, Service was very professional. We were surprised that Kayo Manis was very quiet the night we dined there as the food is so good and the prices are very reasonable.More

I know the restaurant for 15 years. It has been always great to eat there. The service is soooo friendly and welcoming. The owner comes to the table to greet you and the dishes are prepared like you would sit in a simple 1 star...Michelin Restaurant. The best of all is the bill. Unbelievably small for what you consumed. So of course the tip should be great 👍More

So excited to return to the amazing Kayo Manis after too long an absence. Have been delighted by the excellent food and exceptional service for 14 years whenever visiting Sanur. Deeply disappointed to just miss the post Covid reopening when back in Sanur October 2022...but thrilled to return this week for the first visit this stay. As always, a real treat. If located in Belgravia one could add a few noughts to the bill!More

As always this place does not disappoint. Visiting Bali just isn’t the same without coming here. Tonight my husband has the beef gazpacho. Sensation to the tastebuds. I had the Vietnamese rolls. Mains consisted of salmon on a bed of mash and vegetables with a...ginger sauce. I had stuffed chicken breast. Yum. My husband said he could have licked the plate it was that good. This is a must to visit! Staff super warm and friendly. We love Kayo Manis. Rebooked for Sunday. We will be back!More

This is a beautiful restaurant in Sanur and oh so inexpensive. The service is second to none and the food is fabulous. You won’t regret trying, and will be a regular. Where can you have two courses two wines and pay $30 in Australia per...head. A great restaurant to celebrate special occasions and you can reserve the air conditioned room.More

It was great to return to KayOmanis (note the subtle name change after another restaurant on the beach stole theirs) after it closed during covid. The meal began with a complimentary amuse bouche of fish cake with tomato and parmesan, followed by a delicate black...peppered beef carapaccio, accompanied by complimentary bread with black pepper butter. The main course of chili prawn spaghetti was perfectly al dente and flavoursome. The other main of seafood skewer was outstanding. Prawn, squid, tomato and gindara (succulent) on a bed of risotto with mushrooms, eggplant, shallots and chili. The meal was beautifully finished with another complimentary dish -a lemon sorbet with crumble and fruit compote. We have eaten here many times over the years and have been amazed by the consistent, innovative, high quality food and excellent, friendly service at a very reasonable price.More

After doing some homework looking for restaurants in Sanur we read the Trip Advisor reviews and decided to try Kayo Manis for ourselves. My wife and I went to celebrate Christmas eve 2023, and took an expensive bottle of champagne to compliment the meal (corkage...is only $5 AUD per bottle). We found the food absolutely delicious! I had the Australian Beef tenderloin (best I've ever eaten) and my wife had the salmon (to die for). We can't praise the food highly enough and would recommend everyone go for some fine dining at very reasonable prices. We loved the food so much we decided to come back Christmas night and again it was an outstanding dining experience. We had already eaten across the street at Mimpi Manis (same owner) two nights before and the food was also delicious. The chef personally asks "how was your meal?" and was very appreciative of our patronage to both restaurants. Hands down, one of the best places to eat in Bali, a real find. Hi praise to all the staff at both restaurants. We'll be back next trip! John & Elizabeth CominoMore

The last time we visited Kayo Manis was in December 2018. The food was very good then and I’m glad to report that the food is even better than before. There is a perfect harmony and balance between flavours and textures. We stayed in Sanur...5 days and on 4 of those days, we ate at Kayo Manis.More
