First Review by Mai3Cafegan

decent place to eat - Edit

Buddhist restaurant, easy access. If you are super hungry and have nowhere to go, it isnโ€™t a bad place go try out. Foods served here quite natural, minimal fake/mock meats however they are quite oily!

Pros: friendly customer service, tri coloured noodles were nice

Cons: oily, spicy, drinks are too sweet and weird tasting

Disappointing - Edit

Since we didn't had the option to eat in another restaurant we were forced to eat there because of the fact that all restaurants were closed. We wanted to try two things: the lalapan bowl and the dim sum dumplings. The bowl itself was made of rice, fried tofu, tempeh and raw veggies. The only thing that i enjoyed to eat was the tempeh ... The veggies were covered in tons of oil and i didn't eat all of them. The same thing with the dumplings. They weren't cooked properly and they even were gooey outside which was a very yucky moment for me. You simply couldn't eat them. The staff seemed to not understand everything that we told them and their english level wouldn't allow them to talk normally with us. Another thing was that we had to take of our shoes which wasn't a big deal for us but the restaurant wasn't very well decorated and i didn't feel welcome there. I wouldn't recommend this place. Even not if you don't have another restaurant in your near.

Disappointing is an understatement - Edit

We should have known how disappointing the food would be from the pictures in the menu, so visually unappealing. The food was WAY too spicy (we asked for level 2 spice on their scale of 1-6). A lot of the options other reviewers have mentioned didn't exist, perhaps it's changed hands recently. The rice dish had a horrible smell to it as you ate it. Probably the most horrible vegan meal we've ever eaten. Would give it less than two stars if happy cow allowed it.

Pros: NONE

Cons: Expensive for the quality

Great ambience awesome food - Edit

I was looking for a vegetarian restaurant and happened to come across this place on happy cow. The first thought that came to our mind as we entered the lace - this feels like home.

We wanted to taste Balinese flavour but dint want to try in a place that serves meat as well. Since mai3 serves only began we could eat without any concerns.

Staff was very friendly and food was great. They even asked our preferences and were willing to customise the food per our requirements.

Overall loved the place. Highly recommended.

Pros: friendly staff, fresh and yummy food, inexpensive

I wanted to love it - Edit

Went in with high hopes due to the reviews. But for some reason my experience was different than most other reviews.

On the positive note, the portions were reasonable. Granted, it isn't American sized where they serve you twice the amount of food you should be eating, but I am full off one entree of pumpkin spaghetti.

The presentation wasn't anything spectacular, yet was pleasing to the eye. I arrived at 1 pm and was the only customer ordering. Everyone else had their food. I was expecting a 30 to 40 minute wait due to reading the other reviews, but was pleasantly surprised by my food arriving in under 10 minutes.
. I had to admit, I was again surprised by the pumpkin noodles. They looked like regular spaghetti noodles and had the color like it had about a 30% whole wheat content. The texture was closer to gluten free noodles,yet they seem to have more structure holding it together. I was happy with them especially since I'm on a diet.

Alas, my good news ends here. The taste of the food was either unpleasant to grotesque. The noodles were tasteless as could be expected, yet the sauce was unpleasant. I do suspect some white sugar in it as my body craved to eat every morsel of the sauce, even though my tongue and nose were protesting everytime I lick the bowl clean.

For the sake of adventure, I tried the fern greens. Thank goodness I wasn't on a business meeting or with a foreign dignitary as I didn't have a napkin and my tongue instantly rejected them. Slightly chewed, they came roaring out of my mouth. I love most odd tastes in life, but this will never become even an acquired taste of mine. (And I'm the guy that will inhale a ripe durian because it smells so lovely to me)

The pineapple juice was watered down and sugar was added. Almost uncontrollably I gulped it down due to the white sugar added.

I wasn't happy with the food experience. I sit here with a nasty aftertaste in my mouth while being soothed by the most wonderful sounds of a distant waterfall and an acoustic guitar.

I wanted to love this place, but due to my experiences with the food I just can't recommend it.

Pros: Buddha statues, Slogans around the resto, Waterfall and music was serene

Cons: Taste of food, Juice is watered down with sugar

So cute with great food... - Edit

What a fantastic restaurant. The staff are all super nice and menu is on an ipad. Two of the best items were the mushroom sate and balinese satay - so yummy. We also had the fruit spring rolls because of a previous review here - they were surprisingly awesome. The atmosphere is very pleasant with a lovely water feature. Overall a must if you can get here.

Pros: lots of vegan food, great staff, pleasant atmosphere

Yummy food and amazing staff :) - Edit

Found this little gem on happy cow and am so glad I did! For less than $25AU my boyfriend and i managed to nearly fit in 3 drinks, 3 entrees, 3 mains and they even gave us 2 free desserts (yes we vegans eat a lot).
I recommend the pumpkin noodles and oriental fried rice. As a side note, the portions are a tad on the small side so best to grab a drink/entree as well. (Think like Tapas and share a few to make the most out of your meal!)
The orange juice was also freshly squeezed and is the best I've had in Bali so far.
Staff were lovely and gave us boardgames to entertain us whilst we waited. Thank you Mai3 Cafegan and I wish I was here another night to try some more dishes!

Pros: Cheap, Delicious, Lovely Staff

Cons: Christmas music haha

Gracious service, delicious fare - Edit

My meal here was absolutely delicious. I had great, attentive service from Tio. I started with the fruit spring rolls, which I'd never heard of before coming here, so was intrigued to try. The jackfruit/banana/dragonfruit mixture was lightly fried in the batter. It was sweet and crunchy, and not greasy at all. Then I had pumpkin noodles. The noodles were made from potatoes, and the pureed pumpkin sauce coated them. The doughy taste of the noodles contrasted nicely with the pumpkin sauce. The latter had just a hint of sweetness, not the cloying sweetness pumpkin sauces often have. Tio then kindly brought me a new menu item, a mushroom burger with a soy-based cheese sauce on top. It was not too meaty testing, which to me is a very good thing. The bread was light and fluffy, and the cheese sauce was creamy and not too heavy. I sat on the floor at a small table, with the soothing sound of a waterfall in the background and a gardenia essential oil diffuser near me. The place was easy to find, and not far from the airport. I'll definitely be coming back here!

Pros: Great service, Delicious, inventive food , Serene atmosphere

Very Different - Edit

I think i never found vegan/vegetarian restaurant like this in Bali. They have unique style inside cafe that totally different from outside. I love the atmosphere, and i love how they make me feels like at home.

Delicious - Edit

I had the pumpkin noodles and fruit spring rolls, both were delicious :) Everything is vegan here and the noodles were homemade from squash and pumpkin, no added colouring the lovely waitress told me. It was my first time having fruit spring rolls, they were filled with dragonfruit, banana, and jackfruit. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The noodle dish was a bit small though, I would order more food next time.

Pros: Everything is Vegan!!

Cons: Smaller portions
