Came here following other reviews. Really very good Indo food. Clean, quick service . Small and cozy place. Add to your list of daily food places when in Senggigi. Nutty chicken was heavenly! They also do very nice fruit juices.

Small restaurant along the boulevard of Senggigi. Managed by a woman (Linda) who also gives cooking lessons. Fair made, European influences with respect of the local culture. You will surely enjoy this one! 👴
