Our Story

With a name meaning “gateway” in Balinese, Kori was established in June 1998 by the figure behind the island-based Uluwatu handmade lace brand and serves a wide range of international and Asian cuisine in its leafy and cosy garden setting. Well-shaded cabanas adjacent ponds and flowering hedges create intimate spaces to enjoy along with the exciting menu on offer.

The various setups make it a great place to eat for couples or as a group.Situated in the heart of Kuta within walking distance of the Bali Bombing Monument, Legian shopping streets and nightlife, and famous Kuta beach, Kori welcomes you every day, from 10AM to 11PM.

    star rating  I have been going to this restaurant for 30 plus years. I always get the best service and attention of the friendly staff. The food as usual is top shelf. I had 2 of my favourites, calamari stack, light batter and cooked well so it’s soft. The mains was my favourite , steak on the hot stone, it was sensational . I can’t recommend this place highly enough. People that know me understand my 2 favourite restaurants in the world, coco’s in Perth and Kori in Bali 10 out of 10

    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  of course food and ambience was great. What I loved more was Staff. They were very humble, when asked for a pic they clicked our photos happily even more professionally than any of our friend would have done 🙂

    star rating  Went here for dinner and love the ambience once i step in the restaurant, really a contrast from the busy lane of Poppies Ln. Staff were friendly and helpful. Ordered the beef burger and asked the staff to exclude the bacon as i do not eat pork, the staff went extra miles and checked with the chef if there is any other pork containing product on my meal. My 8 yr old son love the chicken cutlet and the nicest he ever taste. Will sure return to this nkce place again this June.

    star rating  This is always our favourite place for a meal when we stay in Legian.
    I don’t think we have missed a year since 2013 except for Covid. Yet again, we weren’t disappointed. The ambience is lovely, the food was, as always, delicious and the staff were attentive. Kori is such a beautiful hidden gem behind the wall.

    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.

    star rating  We have walked this lane many times and have never noticed this restaurant before. We tried it as a big group and then as a couple. Lovely decor and delicious food. I would recommend the chicken curry. The garden out the back is nice as are the little huts if you want more relaxed drinking and dining.
