Great atmosphere to this place. From the moment you drive up and are greeted by the staff, you are already in the mood for a great meal. The place just has that feeling. Some restaurants are so avant- garden and trendy ,that their glitz can turn you off even before you see a menu. Not this place . It just feels warm and inviting ( like coming into a ski chalet that is well heated after a day going downhill We sampled about 12 different items for 8 people just to have a taste, and most plates were well cleaned up. An original food good restaurant

We had our lunch there and we took a chicken soup, the corn fritters, and a salad with fresh vegetables and a peanut spicy sauce. All of the starters were truly nice! For main course we took a seafood curry and the beef cheeks. These were absolutely out of our taste. The curry was so full of coriander that lost all the other taste, and the beef cheeks were so full in spices cinnamon, star anise, etc.. i would really wait more expectations from the main course, but portions were Really good!

The moment you walk into this restaurant you are greeted with a welcoming smile and feel so welcome. The food was very tasty and authentic. The chicken satay melted in your mouth. The barramundi in banana leaves was fantastic and topped of with chilli prawns. All the food went down so well with the strawberry spritz. Well worth a visit.

Nice restaurant in Brawa area, peaceful and retired from the crowded road (I like this detail). Warm welcoming, and professional service staff. About the food would give an 8/10, delicious satay although the seafood curry was the most tasty but also the most pricy (approx 10$ with taxes included), already told them my suggestion for the dish. Loved also the green sambal for the Lalapan (although not spicy perfect for those who not used to spicy food) but I personally would had like more spicy into the sauce (just personal taste). But my favourite were the cocktails which I was very surprised for the quality and matching my bitter taste. DRINKS:The home made negroni (a bit different than the original version) but perfect touch they use a local distillate to replace the vermouth. Also staff was very helpful to share their details about the drink. 1 small add I would made forgot to tell them, the ice cubes shape/style don't match (for my own taste) with the Negroni or any similar "on the rocks" style cocktails. just a matter of design nothing else. also the style they use melt faster due to their shape. Overall we spent like 700k (50$ ish) 2 people with drinks included which were the most heavy on the bill. Recommended for at least 1 time visit and for a nice drink for sure. Perfect for this period when Bali is not crowded. Will be back. Makasih

My first time eating at Ulekan was June of 2019. It was introduced to me by my friend who lives in Canggu. I figured anything the locals recommended would be worth a try. I took my family there for a birthday lunch and we all loved it. We had a teen, a tween and an vegan in the mix and everyone came out satisfied. The portions are great and the side dishes or appetizers are even good as meals! Their lunch menu is simple but it has all the good stuff. I was impressed by their vegan nasi campur. Being Asian myself, I do know what beef rendang tastes like and their vegan sambal and rendang options were all delicious. Very close to the real thing! I visited Ulekan again in Feb 2020 with my girlfriends and was pleased to find that everything still tastes good. My vegetarian friend loved it so much we event ordered it via Gojek (delivery) for dinner the next day. She especially enjoyed the tofu sate to pair with her nasi campur. If you're craving a hot bowl of noodle soup, try their soto ayan (chicken noodle soup)! I like pointing my friends who have a bit of asian and western in them to Ulekan because that's exactly what this place is about! Oh yes it's also quite great for pictures as the restaurant has great interior. Boho chic! Have fun!

We were recommended this restaurant by the staff at their sister Milk & Madu (Berawa). We have been for lunch and dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the experience both times. The restaurant has great ambiance and decor, the staff is incredibly helpful and the food is delicious. One of us has an allergy to gluten and the staff not only are knowledgeable as to what foods contain this (which is not something that you always encounter) but will always trip check with the kitchen. The amuse-bouche and welcome drink are a nice touch, the portions are generous and the price is very reasonable. We would highly recommend!

My husband and I arrived at Ulekan for dinner Saturday night not knowing we should have booked. After our waiter informed us the only place was outside. We were quiet happy with that,eating our Indonesian dinner on a balmy night sitting under a subtly lit tropical tree listening to the Gamelan music coming from a temple right next door. So how Balinese can you get. The food was so delicious and the portion sizes perfect. We ordered the tiger prawn curry dish with other seafood and it was heaven also some aromatic yellow rice. Finished off with a Banana Banoffee which was very rich but worth it. On leaving we asked our waiter if he could order a taxi so we could return to our resort. Well we waited a little while longer as they don’t usually order taxis. We didn’t have a driver. When he arrived unbeknownst to us I’m thinking because they felt we waited so long one of the girls slipped the driver 200,000 rupiah. I didn’t know until we went to pay the driver. We paid anyway, then I rang the restaurant and thanked them profusely and said they really didn’t need to do that, but she said they wanted to. I thanked them again and said good Karma will come your way and bless you all. So good things do happen.

Beautifully plated nasi campur available in veg and non-veg with chicken. The karedok salad was super delicious. Urap papaya leaf salad was fragrant with galangal and yummy. Black rice pudding could have been better - it tasted like it had been in the fridge too long. Beautiful restaurant, recently refurbished.

Really wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone visiting when there are so many other amazing places to eat in Canggu! We made a reservation as we walked past one night and it was buzzing so we thought it would be worth the try. We were very wrong. The staff were lovely but service was very slow and the food was nothing to speak about afterwards. We had the duck and rendang. Portions were so small we had to go and get more food from another restaurant afterwards (we aren’t used to majorly big portions so this is very unusual for us to still be hungry after a meal). Not only this but the food was very flavourless. Really disappointing and would stay away despite the deceivingly good atmosphere

Went to Ulekan and was served by Bayu. He was so knowledgeable about all the food and was such a lovely server. He even told us that we were over ordering and after he offered to help us pack up the food we didn’t finish and give it to people who needed food. The food was delish and we would 1000% recommend.

I visited Ulekan for dinner tonight and had an amazing time. We tried the chicken sate, garlic chilli prawns, and barramundi in a banana leaf. Everything was delicious especially the prawns-highly recommend! Our server was Octavia and she was absolutely wonderful and explained all the best items to try! We will definitely be back!

I have travelled Indonesia for 25 years, and for me Ulekan is absolutely the best Indonesian restaurant - supported by over two dozen personal visits. Their respect for the rich, complex, original, and authentic spice combinations is the key... combined with a wholesale upgrade of ingredient quality and the ability to dial-up or down your preferred spice/heat level (don’t confuse spice & spicy). Yes, the environs are lovely, the staff excellent, and the groovy music perfect... but for me it’s really all about the truly differentiated and outstanding food quality. Amazingly, a visit here is impressive for both a newcomer to Indonesia/Indonesian food... and an eye opening relook at traditional favorite dishes for the even the most “foodie” crowd of locals. Full marks and a must visit.

Ulekan restaurant has a great atmosphere and the very best Indonesian food ever. The staff are excellent and nothing is too much trouble for them. We also had a one year old with our party and his needs were also catered for eg warming food we had bought along for him. We were so impressed that the following day we ate ate Ulekan again. If only we could get that type of food and service in Maryborough Australia I'm sure it would also be our favourite restaurant. Overall great food at affordable prices...keep up the great work Ulekan.

Highly recommended!! Very good Indonesian food, very friendly staff. Loved the food!! I have a severe allergy for seafish, which normally is difficult with Indonesian cuisine. Staff was very helpfull, checked with the kitchen and made sure I was safe. Thanks to them i could enjoy Indonesian food for the first time since a long time. We had the beef rendang, gado gado, vegetarian rendang and my son had the saté. We all loved it! We are coming back!

The restaurant was a recommendation by our hotel manager and it was just amazing. The location is super mice with a great open and modern interior and the service is very good managed, fast and nice. We also tried some cocktails there and they were super good. The rum cocktail was super balanced and wasn't too strong or had a nice spicy flavor in the end. The starter was very nice, too. We tried one of the sambal,super nice and uniquely flavoured. Also the coconut rice came very good with all dishes, especially with the eggplants. The eggplant was just delicious. So soft and a very good spicy level with a also very unique flavour; a must-try! Then we also had the fish in banana leaves that was also very good and with the small spicy damals very good and mice to adjust to your own spicy lebel. As dessert we had the banana with ice cream an chocolate, also very very good. This restaurant is highly recommended one if you are im Canggu but you should book a table im advance since it is very popular.
