Bale Udang Mang Engking

Ubud

Taste, hear and feel Bali when you dine at Bale Udang. A series of private bamboo huts called bales, surround a central pond filled with flowering lilies and koi fish. Diners are led to a private bale where their feet dangle centimeters above the water at a bottomless table.

Staff let diners enjoy their privacy, leaving a wooden bell to ring for attention or when ready to place an order. A large portion of menu items contain seafood, but some meat and vegetarian options are also available.

The koi pond combined with soothing, woodwind and percussion instrumental music provides a unique, peaceful atmosphere while dining on authentic, Indonesian meals from fresh fish and fried duck to satay and chili sambal.
