The Creation of Bumbu Bali
Bali's first authentic Balinese restaurant was created
following the principals used in designing a traditional
Balinese home compound. On our menu you will not find
Balinese food commonly served in hotels and tourist
restaurants, as it is our aim to serve Balinese food
the way you would find it prepared in Balinese homes
or for traditional ceremonies. We will take you on a
journey into the culinary delights our island paradise
has to offer. Countless trips into villages, homes and
temples, together with an endless drive in researching
deeper into the food culture of Bali have resulted in
three highly acclaimed publications by Heinz von Holzen
the Godfather of Bumbu Bali. In "The Food of
Bali", "Bali Unveiled: The Secrets
of Balinese Cuisine" and "Balinese
Culinary Adventure", one will discover many
secret dishes and delights served on our menu.Recognized
by locals and visitors alike as the leading Balinese
Restaurant in Bali, and the many awards received since
opening our small door in 1997, together with the incorporation
of every day Balinese life into a harmonious surrounding
will ensure a most memorable and authentic dinning experience.

island of Gods. Throughout the class you will be guided

ingredients for your class.
At the entrance of the restaurant, we have recreated
