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.

Highly recommended for people who like seafood and are in Seminyak! Super friendly staff who welcome and serve you with a smile! The food was also finger licking and reasonable in price! The location was also super cozy. Perfect for a romantic night out!

Wanted seafood so explored TripAdvisor to see what was recommended in Seminyak and this place was. Had cocktail in the lounge area passion fruit mojito (130k) prior to going into main restaurant for dinner. Ordered the bbq banana leaf lobster large (880k) -it comes with...nothing so ordered salad (68k) to accompany it. My daughter ordered the garlic & lime lobster (880k) and we shared the salad. The lobster was so yummy and the salad a great addition-we also ordered another cocktail each. Total bill for 4 cocktails, 2 lobsters & 1 side salad 299,000:00k or $299 Australian-same prices as we’d pay in Sydney or Melbourne-a great holiday indulgenceMore

We were greeted by smiling faces and taken upstairs to the most beautifully decorated restaurant we’ve been to in Seminyak. The cocktail list is extensive and offers a huge combination of Arak based drinks and this is a must-try liquor! I had them make me...a margarita using it as it’s quite similar to tequila and it was delicious! We spent some time perusing the menu as they have much on offer and settled for a combo of starters: grilled octopus, BBQ shrimp and fried clams were all beautifully presented with a variety of different sambal and each of the seafood were spectacular and so fresh. After, we had the whole BBQ snapper with kankung and beans. The fish was crisp outside, moist inside and an absolute delight and the vegetables were perfectly cooked and seasoned. The sambal is not for the faint of heart or for those with a delicate palate, so be warned! For us it was the perfect balance of sweet tomato, fiery chilli and a faint hint of prawn. Much more accessible than the overpowering Malaysian sambal. To finish, goreng pisang. Light batter, super sweet bananas and delicious ice cream. This restaurant is a real treat and the service is impressive and impeccable. Asti looked after us first followed by Nova and then Duita spent some time chatting with us. These ladies are an absolute joy so if any are available, ask for them by name and they will enhance your experience. You won’t be disappointed! Sambal Prawn restaurant is one of the best restaurants we’ve ever been to in Seminyak and we’ve now been to Seminyak 5 times, it’s slightly bettered only by Chandi and in fact the service is better here! Try it and hopefully, you’ll be smitten just like we wereMore

Wonderful food, lovely service and environment. We really enjoyed our dinner and especially that the snapper had a 50% off deal on! The air con unit was turned our way which was lovely, our driver dropped us off onsite and collected us here so no...issue. Would return if we were staying longerMore

We were greeted warmly by Ms Yeni as we approached the entrance. Her recommendation on dishes were top notched. We ordered the Shrimp Suna Cekuh, Octopus Leg, Grilled Snapper, Kangkung and basket of rice (nicest we had in that 6 days we were in Bali)....All the dishes were yummylicious. Must order their arak signature cocktail. Wonderful drinks ~ Ginger Mule and The Exploded Tamarillo, both of which was recommended by Ms Yeni. Last but not least, we finished the wonderful meal with 2 desserts - Kemungi and Fried Bananas.More

Tasty seafood and we had a bit of everything, grilled tiger prawns, fried crunchy clams, octopus and a prawn salad. The prawn bisque is done in the style of a lobster bisque and is delicious. We liked every dish except the grilled octopus which was...a bit tough and short of flavour. The waitress assured us that the spice levels were mild and she was right.More

We had a wonderful night at this fantastic restaurant. We shared our meal of deep fried clams for a starter then a sambal tamarind mud crab and finished with a pan fried bamboo lobster in garlic and lime. All of the food was absolutely delicious...and beautifully presented. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Eli who answered my many questions and whose patience was much appreciated. We nearly didn't eat here as sambal is usually too hot for me but we decided to check if there could be options. Eli kindly organised tasting samples of the mildest sambals and having chosen one I thought might be okay she organised for the mud crab to be served with the sambal on the side which was perfect. The restaurant is upstairs and beautifully decorated with a large balcony where we ate. A gentle breeze and a tasty lychee martini or 2 round off a delightful evening. We have already booked a return visit.More

I’m sorry... i tried to read the menu again to refresh my memory. Most of the menu was shrimp, and some other variety like calamari, crab and fishes. So seafood only
