If you are in the Jimbaran area you must stop by and have lunch or dinner here. The food and service are great! It's all outdoor dining with ceiling fans but the ambience is great. You will enjoy this restaurant! Make time to go!

We stayed in that hotel for 2 nights and ate there for most meals. The place is stunning in a hidden garden far from the madness outside. The food is really good. We tried most of the dishes and they were all very tasty. Recommended !

This place is hidden away from the main street of Jimbaran, so you have to look for it (look for the Royal Karma resort and the Balquisse Hotel). The decor is lovely, with a sense of space, and greenery all around. The food is excellent - all traditional Indonesian recipes. Their cinnamon gelato (not a traditional Indonesian dessert!) is to...

We stay at the Intercontinental, have visited all of Bali and eaten all over Bali many times. We had come to this restaurant 2 or 3 times in the past before it got renovated. While the setting wasn't as stylish before, it was very acceptable and the food was quite good, authentic Indonesian with a bit of adaptation for tourists.... More

10 of us went here for lunch, 5 adults and 5 kids. The menu has a great variety, is well priced and importantly fresh and tasty. We had satays, rice paper rolls, prawns, chilli chicken, rice.....and it was all excellent. The gardens surrounding the dining area are very tranquil. It's a perfect peaceful place to have lunch 25 metres from... More

Great location and ambience but that's where the good part finishes. The food was boring, little of it for the price and cold! The duck was stringy and chewy, the sate sticks were so cold they seemed as though straight from the frig. Extremely limited menu and just plain bland. A huge disappointment. The staff weren't even that good. On... More

Dear kezzaknows, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. Asam Garam was closed for 3 months for renovation. We just reopened with new staff, a new small soft opening menu, no advertising, a new chef. We wanted to start very very slowly. I believe every word you say. We are still working to put everything into place. This is... More

The resort may have scored very well in the ratings but yesterday's evening meal was poor. The six of us have been in Bali for ten days and eaten in many restaurants and have not been disappointed till now.

Beautiful setting close to upscale hotels. Unfortunately the food quality is not keeping up with this standard. The fish was deep frozen and tasted very dry. And that a couple of meters distant to the sea with excellent fishes. Wouldn't go there again!

Local historic photos on the walls, loads of character and charm, Asam Garam made me wish I had taken my camera to dinner. We sat outside: no mosquitoes. People came and went about their business, providing an intriguing scenario . It was 7pm, too early for the tables to be full, but good for service. The food was okay, well... More
