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.

TLDR: Staff horribly inappropriate, restaurants’ fat dogs lying on floor, meat in vegetarian dish, and more. Wow, I don’t know where to start, really. When something horrible happened, I thought it just could get any worse. And then it did. After walking in, we were...forced to wait for “the other people who were walking around” for their expressive waitlist “no reservation” policy. (Even though it was clear we were eventually going to get one of the wide open four tops.) Then after making us wait longer (seems it’s part of the initiation to get in) they said the others “cancelled” 🙄 and sat us. This was after waiting in the heat (we weren’t allowed to wait inside right by the door even though my friend was pregnant, because we were “in the way” of the waitstaff (while they have two very fat full sized Labradors lying on the floor of the restaurant right by the kitchen exit)). When we finally sit down, we tell the waiter about allergies and dietary requirements, and it’s like pulling teeth. The waiter, the argumentative guy with ear plugs and bad breath, apparently somehow turns out to be the manager, is trying really hard and getting nowhere. There are no substitutions allowed in their menu. It is very inhospitable for anyone with special diets. They use Bimoli to cook (highly refined palm oil), and all of the food is pre-cooked so no fresh food nor opportunity for changes. It might score high on here for presentation and other surface instagram check-boxes, but there is nothing about this place that is genuinely quality food. It’s Indonesian owned and Japanese “inspired”. Your next touristy not worth our eye roll. But if you’re into that sort of thing… After a few more headaches, including serving butter on a vegan toast & more, my pregnant friend found a piece of meat in her vegetarian ramen. Her partner ate it and double confirmed it was meat. We told them, and they didn’t seem to care. Later when we were paying, the “manager” very defensively said we would need to “prove it” that it was meat …… the waitstaff nearly had to come and sweep my jaw off the floor. The whole thing was a disaster, and I cannot imagine this was a one off instance. Whereas we had special dietary requirements and pregnancy concerns, the staff was a tepid mix of clueless, robotic, ignorant and at the end questionably rude. When my friend went to pay for her soup (after I said we shouldn’t pay and he said “prove it”), he asked her if she would like to pay. She said no and then he started arguing with her again. So she asked him why he even gave her an option if he was just going to vehemently defend and say no. What went on in this restaurant was despicable and would be written up in any “DO NOT DO” section of a hospitality manual. The owner is welcome to contact me, as I’ve worked in hospitality for 20 years. We most certainly will not be going back and will instead patron restaurants with capable, caring teams and kitchen that actually cook wholesome healthy food (like Secret Spot or Burgreens). If you’re basic and don’t care about what you eat and just want the scarcity of the “hard to get into” spot, then give your money to this non-Balinese Indonesian owned swamp.More

A unique brunch menu with fusion style of western and thai. The food taste was nice, service was nice, but the seating was too cramped. Drinks was great!

Amid a sea of pretty good but not very exciting brunch options, this place is a beacon of exciting and delicious options. An Aussie/Asian mix of dishes to choose from, with great coffee and a great vibe. I had the brunch soup ramen which slapped,...and my friend had the kimchi toast which she absolutely demolished. Can’t recommend enough. Also lovely staff and dog friendly!More

Honestly was excited to try this place via the good reviews but DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE. The food was very very average and definitely not the best I w had in Bali. Rice bowl was under whelming. I got the lyche coffee and it was...border line horrible. I also hate writing bad reviews but I feel like the internet is lying, I wouldn’t even waste my time coming back or if you’re interested in trying just skip. Wait time was about 15mins and I felt like it was extremely over priced. The staff was friendly except for the manager I expressed my absolute dis taste for the lychee coffee and to take it back he still charged me for it on the bill then when I called him over he made a big fus about not taking it off the bill even though I replaced it with another coffee and was willing to pay for that one. He finally gave in but basically was very rude about it and stomped his feet away. 5.5/10 only because the place is pretty.More
