We decided this restaurant from an impromptu decision to have dinner before New Year. Came by here at 7.45pm for a quick dinner and we were seated upstairs. We had:- Bebek Bertutu @ RM 29.00 Pork Curry @ RM 28.00 Tiger Beer Bottle @ RM...14.00 Babi Kecap Set @ RM 32.00 Total dinner for 2adults @ RM 113.30 nett Food was good for the bebek as the meat falls off the bones and flavorful with lemongrass and some slight chilli gravy kind. Pork curry was fragrant with curry chilli and coconut milk and was cooked till tender. The Babi kecap was a slight spicy for little girl as it has slight chilli in the kecap to lift up the flavors to it. Food was fragrant, soft and has the right flavors to it. Service was prompt and we had no hiccups to it. Price was reasonable and we will be back soon to try out The Uma other dishesMore

A real disappointedl. Food bland and fatty, cheap cuts of meat. Chefs are foreigners and haven’t trained in Indonesian food per owners comment. Mocktail drink was lolly water. Yes the interior looks Indonesian but that’s it. As a foreigner I don’t like sitting on the...floor via a flat cushion. Left not eating. Owner didn’t care. Stay far away from this downgraded restaurant.More

We have not dine here for some time as we somehow forgotten about it. Made a reservation for late dinner as the place was packed and we wanted to avoid the crowd. Ordered the pork rib and curry pork dishes and the taste was still...very good. Service was excellent and fast. The Ho sibblings running an excellent restaurant. Highly recommended.More

We have been here many times, great food always consistent. Pork paradise, grilled, fried, curry, all delicious! Pork ribs personal favourite. If dining with older folks, suggest call ahead to book tables on the ground floor.

This is an outstanding restaurant. The music and decor are calm and refreshing, service is efficient and helpful, and the excellent cooking really took us back to memories of rice fields in Bali. Pork satay and spare ribs were nicely charred but still tender, deepfried...duck, Balinese sausage, salads, emping crackers, yellow rice and fish curry are all well seasoned and spiced. Uma Bali uses fresh, good quality ingredients. Cold bottled beer is available, and there’s no corkage charge for BYO wine. Our little six-year-old niece was beaming, because she liked her children’s meal of pork with soy sauce and rice, and her lime, lemongrass and basil seed drink. Prices are fair and parking is easy on a Sunday. Keep up the amazing effort, Uma Bali.More

Dining here makes you feel like you’re in Bali. The decor and atmosphere at the restaurant has an authentic Balinese feel. The food is good, portions are huge. We loved their many different Balinese drinks, especially the cucumber, lime & mint one. Very refreshing.

As we really like Balinese Food, we decided to give this place a try. No regrets. The staff are very efficient as she advised us not to order too much food. The set menu is sufficient to be shared at least 4 to a set....Since we had a group of 9 pax we ordered two different sets and an extra pork dish. This place serves good food and the environmont is suitable for kids and a family gathering. The menu has something suitable for everyone including kids. Definitely will recommend this place. If you are able to sit on the floor the uppper floor would be a nice place to have a romantic dinner.More

This is a hidden gem of a restaurant near the Strand shopping centre. It serves authentic balinese dishes and sets in a cozy and comfortable environment with traditional music in the background. The tuna set is very good so we're their gado gado and park...satay. They also have a function area on the first floor for private functions. Parking is a nightmare. Price is not cheap.More

A very charming, tastefully decorated and tidy little outpost in a sea of eateries in Dataran Sunway not far from The Strand. Quite understated on the outside and can be mistaken for a spa centre. Started by the chef owner who spent more than ten...years in Bali and fell in love with the cuisine there. His sister manages the front counter. They serve most of the popular Balinese specialities except Babi Guling. But their beautifully chargrilled sate celeng (pork satay) makes up amply for that omission. We liked the sate lilit (minced fish satay) as well, fragrant with lemongrass. Babi kecap manis (stewed pork in dark sweet soya sauce) was particularly good, as was the Pesan be tuna (grilled tuna in banana leaf). Quite unique is the Spicy tuna soup which wasn’t really that hot. The 6 variations of the sharing platter (for four) are an excellent fun way to enjoy more variety. We loved the sambals too which are not too explosive. There were virtually no weak spots in the menu. If I had to grumble, I thought the vegetable dishes like the fried cabbage and long beans were too plain-tasting. Otherwise everything else was fine and the prices are more than reasonable. Don’t overlook the desserts - Bubur sumsum being our favourite. Finish off the meal with a strong cuppa of Kopi Bali.More

Brought a new group of associates for dinner. Had 2 large sets but 7 pax managed to finish everything. Truly appreciate the consistency of food quality. Drinks wise, my favourite is the avocado smoothie. Sometimes it's good, sometime not so. But the cucumber refresher is...always 👍🏻👍🏻 Premise is still well maintained, clean & comfy. Believe owners & staffs could be even more friendly. Strongly suggest to make advance reservations, especially for Fri-Sun dinner & also if you prefer to dine on proper tables/chairs. The upper floor, diners sit on the wooden floor.More

Really good tasty food. Spices were well cooked and aromatic. The avocado drink was thick and filling. Almost perfect outing. Nice decor and I liked the murals and greetings on the wall.
