    star rating  I’m reviewing this amazing restaurant after many visits. Today for the great service, attention to detail and great communication. My daughter was taken by her boyfriend for a suprise birthday dinner last night. He booked the cutest hut. They decorated with "HB" sign and balloons. I arranged for a cake to be dropped off at 4pm and requested they bring it out after mains to suprise my daughter and staff to sing Happy Birthday. Well…they followed instructions (im in Perth) perfectly and the staff sang with lots of noise and pan banging 😀 she was so touched, suprised and grateful for such great treat. Kori you are the best of the best. You all made my daughter feel special 💕 Thank you from my heart ❤

  • star rating  A charming restaurant off the beaten track of Kuta with excellent international menu for the family is worth a visit at any time! They host activities throughout the week eg cooking classes. In true Balinese style you dine in an authentic Balinese-styled restaurant with surrounding pond and Koi. There’s a two-man band who don’t bust your ear drums. We ordered the Balinese cuisine – pork belly, grilled wrapped fish, beef spicy stew – which were excellent ! My son also tried the Thai green curry which was very authentic. The restaurant can host a large party. There are garden lanais which make an alternative dining option surrounded by lush greenery. All in all, very civilised with great cuisine!

    star rating  The entire experience at Kori was fantastic!!

    From the moment my husband, children and I walked through the door we were greeted by happy and friendly faces.

    The food was delicious. We tried a wide variety of dishes from the menu, and everything was on point, including a few of the great cocktails .

    The ambience was beautiful, surrounded by greenery and plants giving the feel of a hidden jungle.

    We had our 2 young lads in tow ( 8 &6 ) and nothing was too much trouble. One of the staff took them on a tour to show them the ponds full of turtles and fish (they even got to feed the turtles).

    I highly recommend you get along and checking this place out. Whether you’re with the family, having a romantic couples meal or in a big group with friends it really does cater to all occasions with separate rooms, hidden cabanas or candlelit tables.

    You won’t be disappointed .

    star rating  We go to Kori every visit to Bali since 2014. We love it. It’s our favourite.
    It is hidden behind a rock wall and gate in Poppies 1. The moment you step inside, you are taken away from the streets of Bali. It is devine and so relaxing.
    The food has been consistently good every visit and Kori didn’t disappoint this time either. It is amazing.
    The staff are wonderful and nothing is a problem.
    If you are looking for somewhere special to eat, this is the place.

  • star rating  Another restaurant hidden away in Kuta. This time down Poppies Lane 2
    We were warmly welcomed into the restaurant on a Friday evening by the helpful staff.
    We ordered the non alcoholic drink Kori punch which was very refreshing.
    My Win sum basket starter was very good with nice sauces.
    I opted for the Chicken Sate main which was sizzling when it arrived. It was very tasty and our helpful server advised me remove the skewers from the heat so they wouldn’t overcook and then place them back individually before eating them.
    We rounded the meal off with Liqueur coffees
    A wonderful place to finish our holiday
    Great atmosphere, lovely food and good service

    star rating  Thank goodness the Kori is open again, stepping into the Kori is like stepping into a oasis from the street and heat and noise from poppies lane 2. Amazing food and gardens. A great place for a rest. Somewhere for lunch after our prayers at the memorial x

  • star rating  I have been dining at Kori for quite a few years now. A fantastic menu, varied and delicious. I love the setting, a huge surprise is hidden beyond the doors on very busy Poppies lane 11. A range of different seating options and areas, suits singles, families and large groups. Have never been disappointed. The staff is warm and welcoming even before you step inside. Desak, Wayan and all of the staff have been wonderful. I will most definitely be returning.
