I was searching for lunch around and i found this restaurant. It looked interesting bcs it is not so common here. So we decided to go here.
The steamed buns look interesting but are actually small and i was still hungry afterwards. Ordered the BBQ Chicken Buns. The taste was not so bad, but only together with the sauce. They didn't add much sauce.
I ordered the Mango sticky rice too and this was very good. Especially the covonut milk cream.
The prices are too high for such small dishes. I guess you pay the fancy preparations too, but i don't need that, if the food tastes not so good.

During our 6 weeks in Bali, we visited and dined at this restaurant 4 times and came satisfied each time. We ordered the menu with the ramen, the BBQ buns, Thai Salad, Tom Yang Soup and curry chicken. The Ramen and the BBQ are the children's favorite. Portion is generous and taste are really good. Price is quite high, but it is expected for a resto in a mall in Kuta.

They also have a lot of refreshing drink menu and they happy to accomodate our no straw policy. Service was really good, the different waitresses that we had encountered were all very friendly and happy. If you are to sit inside, do choose a place that is not directly under the centralised AC as it can get very chilly. If you can sit in the 'outside' area.
