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.

Ate at Kori last night and the food, drinks and staff were amazing. I ordered the calamari for a starter with the semur daging for the main, the starter wasn't over cooked which is probably the only thing that could go wrong. The main dish...was a new one for me after coming to Indonesia for the last 21yrs and i would happily eat it everyday if i had to. The staff are super friendly and it is good to see them have fun amongst themselves and the customers Thanks for the great experience team KoriMore

Had a very good dinner at Kori. Extensive menu, great value. They bake their own bread.. Foccacia and dips delish. Malai koftas very tasty. Mains of perfectly cooked m/r carpet bagger steak and pasta dish were very good. Sticky date pudding x2 😋. Drinks menu...comprehensive cocktails wine and spirits. Staff were very good... Pleasant with good sense of humour. They also have an excellent guitar duo playing classic tracks including requests. A must visit in BaliMore

We too are big fans of this lovely restaurant which is an oasis in busy Kuta. We messaged the owners a few months back asking when they will be re-opening and I’m pleased to say they replied to say they’ll be open from the middle...of July. Just in time for our next trip to Bali!More

We have eaten at Kori often over the years. Food and service were always excellent. However, it appears that covid-19 has hit here too and as of May 2022 it is closed, with no indication of if or when it will reopen. We want you...back!More

We had a wonderful dinner at Kori for my Brother in law’s birthday. The six of us enjoyed many of their specialty drinks and loved the flavours. The food was excellent as was the service. Special thanks to the service group for an impromptu singing...of happy birthday, they used pots and pans, jugs and bowls.More

This place is absolutely incredible! It’s a stunning little sanctuary tucked away In the midst of the hustle and bustle of Kuta. The food is absolutely amazing and has been every time I’ve been there (which is a lot). There is a great selection on...both food and drinks. I love the focaccia and dip starter and all of the cocktails! The service is like nothing else you will get in Bali! Full service, friendly staff and they are so attentive and so helpful! On our last visit we even got a magic shown from our bar tender. Very family friendly, we often watch the staff help young kids feed the fish. I couldn’t recommend this place more.More

Cigar smokers in dining area..Why is this permitted??.We dined here last evening ,8 adults and one infant.Sirloin steak that 2 of party ordered, far to tough to eat but staff happy to change to a different cut of meat.The fillet on the hot stone tasty.Then...it all went pear shaped, contrary to the smoking policy on kori website, Kori sell cigars which were taken out of glass cabinet and sold to diners at next table.The cigars all lit at same time!The smell was so disgusting and so off putting for us to continuing eating our meal, we left the restaurant in disgust.Why do smokers have more rights that non smokers in a dining environment in Bali? Until kori abide by their own smoking policy we won't be back. Unless you like cigar smokers in the dining area give Kori's a big missMore

Always great . In Bali for one night only(business). For the week beforehand my wife and i knew where we would be eating. Kori is our favorite Easily accessible ,great garden setting. Reasonable drink prices. Eat drink and relax amongst the garden and large fish...pond. We last ate there in dec 2019,and some staff will remember your name from then. So,settin service ,and selection is great. We woould normally lock in for the nasi goreng ,but sublime chicken cordon bleu ,and local fish for about 12 or 13 bucks each represents amazing value. Surf and turf is available 35 bucks amazing value .seafood skewers 27 bucks. There are plenty of great restaurants in bali,but we would always try and eat at kori weekly. Hopefully next time we will be in bali longerMore

This is a restaurant you must visit if you love good food. In 7 visits This time 3 visits we had the Beef Wellington and the New Zealand Lamb shank which were outstanding or for better words mouth watering.I also had the Sirloin Steak which...was a let down full of fat and the whole plate was cold unsure what happen I think it was cooked before it should have been because like always we have a break of 15 to 20 minutes between Entree and mains my wife Kerry's main was hot she had Satay. When I told our waiter he said nothing and did nothing. But you know in all my visits this is the only time I walked away not happy 20 Feb 2020. Everyone has a off night and that's what I putting it down to as this Restaurant is fantastic. And by the way let me tell you the Desserts were fantastic again. I'm not a food critic but I do eat out a lot and this would rate in my top 10 restaurants for both food and service . Well done to all the staff and the chef at Kori Restaurant. From Peter and KerryMore

We have walked this lane many times and have never noticed this restaurant before. We tried it as a big group and then as a couple. Lovely decor and delicious food. I would recommend the chicken curry. The garden out the back is nice as...are the little huts if you want more relaxed drinking and dining.More

We usually ask our hotel to make a reservation for us. Request a special table too if you like. We like to sit by the fish pond which is lovely.
