The food was exellentand promptly served, and followed on at 8pm., with the most wonderful music and Vocals. The Laughing Buddha is the only reason one needs to Visit Ubud again, which we are certainly going to do. Great Stuff!!!!!

Head to Laughing Buddha you want quality live music and great vibes any night of the week. Bintangs for IDR 30K. I was walking down Monkey Forest Rd on a Monday night, heard awesome music and ended up staying for over an hour. Quality place.

Nice music with good band. I really like it. Sometimes music is too loud so it's hard to talk to friends. Food and drinks are ok.
