This restaurant never fails to impress. Food is delicious and service great. Staff attentive but not overbearing. Seafood soup was in a broth that was delicious and just enough for a starter. Had the sliced duck breast which was cooked to perfection. Sauce was delightful and tasty. Hubby had the barramundi which he thoroughly enjoyed. Prices are reasonable for the... More

The chef on occasion will come out and have a short chat with you which is a nice touch! Ayu is extra nice and she really goes out of her way to make... More

I love trying new places and this restaurant was rated highly in trip advisor. It's not on the main street in Sanur but our taxi driver knew exactly where to go. As soon as we walked in we were greeted warmly by all the staff, including the open kitchen staff. Our yummy cocktails were delivered promptly as well as two... More

Maybe it's because I come to this restaurant without the eyes of previous experiences and memories. It was cool in the glassed off dining area but very lacking in ambience and very echo-ey. I ordered seafood soup then the special barramundi with risotto dish. Way too much cheese in everything. There was cheese in the seafood soup (thought it was... More

We went for dinner and ordered the spaghetti carbonara and the Balinese chicken dish. The portions were a good size, the chicken was favourful, however the carbonara lacked pizazz. We were a bit disappointed that the menu didn't have more local dishes as they can be absolutely wonderful. (Tha being said, neither of us like fish and it had a... More

We had dinner at the Kayu Manis but can't really understand the rave reviews as we found the experience utterly underwhelming. The bread came with a cheese dip. Our starters were seafood soup which inexplicably had cheese sprinkled on it. Likewise, my prawns with young papaya salad - also sprinkled with cheese....the barramundi main came with - yes - you...

Came here base on reading reviews. Sat in the cool room which was great as was very humid outside. Found prices really reasonable. 2 of us ordered the stuffed chicken breast which was dry. The mash could have been creamier too but was but stiff. I gave this 4 stars only because of the rum raisin sauce that came with... More

Beautiful restaurant friendly staff and obliging chefs. We had a wonderful meal last night, I'm a vegetarian and the chef cooked me extra veggies, very happy with the food and the service, will definitely go back.

The food here never disappoints, your tastebuds will be awakened by the flavours. The service is excellent & there is also a glassed off air-conditioned room within the restaurant, perfect for those humid evenings. One of a favourite places, always go here when in Sanur.
