Ate at the restaurant last night with my wife and 8 year old son. My son (who thinks the food isnt great for food) became really unwell while ordering food and wanted to go back to the room. Staff placed our food into takeaway containers and gave us knives and forks which was so helpful as we were then still... More

Nice atmosphere and very good service from the staff member, we chose a quiet lunch time, the food was good value and better than average, not very spicy or hot but thats probably what most customers want.

I have a three times to this restaurant which prides itself on providing authentic Balinese cuisine. And it has not disappointed. We have had the multi course banquet twice and were impressed and sated with all courses except the desert. This however is more a reflection of not much liking Balinese deserts rather than any deficit in preparation. We also... More

I went here with my family on our last night in Cairns and it is fair to say that it was the best meal we had in Cairns. Ordering a variety of the dishes and sharing provided a great eating experience. My highlight was the pork ribs. The staff were very friendly also.

From the moment we walked in we knew it would be a great evening. The welcome and service was excellent. The large menu caters for all tastes. The appetisers are all brought to the table at once and served over charcoal burners. The mains also served in the same way. The presentation was faultlless and the flavours superb. What else...

Located a little on the city fringe, while this eatery does not boast views, the relaxing tropical island decor and great food leave neither the palate nor the soul wanting. Great choice of food with great aroma and palate, from mild to wild. Do yourself a flavour!.

This is a lovely place to eat. We ate outside under cover as monsoon-like rain came down. It was nighttime and had a very pleasant atmosphere. We chose the tasting/banquet menu and were advised that ordering for two would be sufficient for three. Apart from the first two courses(which we paid extra to have 3 portions) this was very true...
