Mama san Best Bali Restaurant - Restaurants in Seminyak

Low light, dark wood and metal trim tables and a large mural on the back wall make for a great first impression as you walk through the heavy wooden double doors. The whole restaurant is the epitome of cool.

The brainchild of chef Will Meyrick, who is also the man behind the equally popular Sarong Restaurant, he set out to create a space that was “more than just a restaurant” – and with MamaSan presenting as a kitchen, lounge, bar and cooking school, I think he achieved his objective.

Mains:  The choice is incredible and ranged between 120-190k per plate.
Drinks: 42k Small Beer; 130k Wine By The Glass & 110k Cocktails

The photograph simply does not do it justice!

The staff are wonderful: friendly, attentive, knowledgeable about the menu and confident in making recommendations. They pull your chair out – and are miraculously there to push you back under after a visit to the bathroom (despite how busy them seem); they place napkins on your lap and serve your accompaniments to your main meal.

It’s tag line is ‘Asian Eatery’ and its menu is exactly that. Heavily influenced by Vietnamese dishes and flavours, there are elements of Thai and Korean thrown in for good measure. (And their twice cooked pork belly is delicious!) Their website does not claim to be authentic but instead inspired by the flavours of Asia – and they do not disappoint.

And every hour a member of staff walks round with some form of treat – be it a frozen fruity icy-pole type treat, popcorn or sampler from the restaurant; and at the end of the day there are beautiful showers complete with shampoo/conditioners/shower gel available to use to freshen up if you are planning on heading straight out rather than return to your accommodation.

Thank you again.

The daybed at the infinity pool at Four Seasons is a perfect idea. $100 seems like a royal treat with all the change of towels, showers, the pool, the ocean and the sunshine.

The food looks amazing but I nearly choked on the optics at first... 50k?? Lol! This would be a great opportunity to practice real life math and do some necessary currency conversion!!


Friday 17th of February 2017

Hi Natalie - there is a note re how to do your currency conversions at the top of the post.. I tried to make it clear regarding prices without doing the conversions myself (fluctuating rates/different conversion currencies would make the information less valuable) but I suppose I can't force people to read the text.. Thank you for commenting though!

The restaurants are very beautiful and some of them are beyond lovely. Bali being endowed with natural beauty also has some of the finest places to dine which just makes the experience worth remembering. Eating is really an experience on another level altogether.
