Morning pick up and interesting tour of the markets and description of ingredients before breakfast and the 'masterclass'. It was a great day and really interesting, my only slight reservation was that I expected to do more of the cooking myself and I thought we would be more 'hands-on'. Nevertheless loved it!

We have had the pleasure of dining at Bumbu Bali twice in one holiday stay. We love the ambiance, the food and the graciousness of the staff. They never disappoint! If not already booked up, they also offer transportation from the Nusa Dua hotel area which is also a bonus.

We were lucky to be able to attend the cooking school of the Bumbu Bali restaurant. The cooking class starts at 6 am with a visit to the local vegetable and meat market followed by a visit to the fish market, where we were instructed into the local spices and foods of Bali, while the restaurant goes about purchasing some...

A 06-00 start was well worth the effort, a visit to the markets with the Chef Heinz von Holzen who showed and explained local produce followed by the fish market at Jimbaran then back to the Rumah Bali for an excellent breakfast. During the market visits and over breakfast many useful cooking techniques were explained, some in a serious way... More

In this place I have experience the true of Bali. The food, the hospitality, and the atmosphere. The staff are very nice, they offer us to taste sipping for food that we like to eat, but we ended up with satay - serves with rice and lontong, vegetables (urap), and non-skin non fat chicken satay. Very tempting

If you love cooking and Indonesian food, this is a must if you come to Bali. And then make sure you book the full package, including the trip to the market. This market trips is not only fun, but here Heinz teaches you already a lot of essential basics on Balinese cooking. Don't expect to be cooking yourselves the whole... More

We enjoyed our cooking class with chef Heinz von Holzen, He is a skilled chef, who gave us a lot of really workable and methodical information, combined with a good knowledge of the Balinese kitchen. He is a strict chef , that made us laugh quite a couple of times. Its good to take your food seriously, and always inspiring... More

this is a hidden gem along that road. We were staying at the grand mirage and stumbled upon BUMBU BALI. We went there twice in one day... food was fresh, service was on point and the presentation was the icing on the cake. keep it up
