Came here for a late lunch or early dinner 4PM. Restaurant was empty but we've been here before. Nice food & service, but quite noisy from the traffic racing by. We had the Indonesian crispy duck, spring rolls, chicken & beef sate, & braised eggplant dish. Bintangs nice & cold, fair price, what more could you ask for.

We had a walk in dinner at Batan Waru as a big group. Every single item we ordered, we were more than happy with. All the food is well prepared, good quality and very delicious. I need to note we only ordered Indonesian/Balinese food. They have a kids menu and high chairs available, which is a bonus in Ubud!

Poor meal and expensive by Balinese standards. We were given the specials menu but when ordered from it were advised it was not available, a second meal was also not available. On arrival one meal was cold, another meal had undercooked chicken which could not be eaten, one glass of wine was good another was warm. We decided to pay... More

I would totally recommend this cafe. Why not? It has good food and friendly staff. I don't understand the night I had my dinner, the cafe was not full compared to the other cafes/restaurants nearby. I think the cafe needs to add some live music.

Located right next to the Lippo mall the menu provides an outstanding selection of food from all across Indonesia. The friendly staff will explain the origin and contents of each dish. The quality of the food is excellent, and the pricing, though not cheap by local standards, is very reasonable. I enjoyed both the meal and talking with Indra and... More

So in Bali world this place is not super cheap. 80 000 for mie goreng rather than than 30 000 but it's worth it. It was so tasty. Chicken curry in coconut milk equally good. Happily pay the extra $5 Aussie for the quality we received.

We went for the house special, 95,000, and it was excellent. Forgotten the name of the dish but after all the 2-for-1 Cosmopolitans, it's not surprising
