We ate the first night in sideman here since the setting looked nice. Service was very friendly, the place looked very clean though the food was just ok. Mustard tofu tasted good but was very mushy and looked a bit like chicken nuggets. Dip looked ready not home made. Balinese fish curry tasted not different to any other Thai curry.... More

Escaping a heavy downpour, we took refuge at Lihat Sawah. The view from their open balcony resto offers an infinity view of the Sidemen area, which sits in a valley surrounded by soft hills where the paddy fields steeply climb their sides until they meet the forest. We shared a cooling Bintang accompanied by generously filled, local spring rolls, delicious!... More

This is the restaurant located in Karma Loca villas. We stayed here three nights and ate several meals. The breakfast which is included with the room is not great but the dishes we had for lunch and breakfast were better. Super friendly and helpful staff.

The setting of the restaurant is nice enough and the staff is attentive, food is just OK. We ate here twice just because it was convinient since we stayed at the hotel (the hotel changed its name to Villa Karma Loka)

We called in here as it has a great view and it just kept ticking the boxes. Kitchen nice and clean (my wife, a chef, always checks), friendly staff and the food was great, more tasty than the usual fare - they also do Thai. Despite being the only 2 customers one of the staff just started playing the rendek... More

I recommend the delicious pepes. One young waiter occasionally plays traditional music. The banana juice contains more water than banana but the Indonesian food was good.

Good food, fair price (+-122000 roupies for two meals and drinks). The waiter was really nice! I would recommend this place and go again!

Service with a smile and the food was great. We had curry chicken vegetables. A cool breeze swept through the open air eatery. We will be back.

This is a lovely, simple open-air restaurant on the road between Lihat Sawa B&B and Surya Shanti Hotel. It is the only restaurant in that area of Sidemen. The food was simple and fresh with excellent flavor -- fresh tomato soup was excellent, the chicken sate was perfectly grilled, and the fish curry was fresh, light and flavorful. Strongly recommended.
