The menu was small but food we ordered was really fresh and tasty. The staff knew the menu well and were able to explain all meals in detail. The curry and noodles were excellent as were the specials of the day.

The food was amazing! My husband had chicken curry with rice and my friend had chicken curry with noodles; both were from the usual menu. They enjoyed their meal greatly. You are asked what level of spicy you would like, so very accommodating. I had the lemon grass chicken from the specials menu which was just delightful. The menu is... More

The staff are very friendly, particularly the owner. It is also very cheap and the tax is included in the price, which is nice. The food however was a huge disappointment, we ordered the chicken curry, mine with noodles and my partner's with rice. My boyfriend asked for mild, but it had absolutely no flavour to it at all. Mine... More

Lovely warung run by a friendly French expatriate. A small and seasonal menu means each dish made with care and you can taste it.

I read about the Melting Wok here on TripAdvisor before heading to Ubud on a day trip. After wondering though the Monkey Forest we headed straight here for lunch. Let me tell you that the reviews don't lie... It was worth the visit. The quality of the meals was exceptional and the prices were reasonably cheap.

Charming little place in the heart of Ubud. The staff is wonderful and make you welcome from the first second (saying that it helps to have a reservation as this place is almost always fully booked). The food is so delicious, in my opinion the best in Ubud for dinner. Highly recommended!

Very popular bistro, always full during peak hours, better make reservation in advance. The French owner greets everybody and really takes care of the customer. The curry beef noodle is tasty, with good price. Very hot to dine there, was sweating the whole time XD
