Not good

I wasn’t really sure whether sth is vege or not. My Gado Gado looked rather disappointing so I haven’t even taken a photo. The taste wasn’t satisfactory either. I got it with an egg which was obviously overcooked. I’m not willing to come back.

Not sure if veg dishes are vegan...

Lots of (we presumed) vegan options. It was difficult to confirm whether the vegetarian dishes were vegan due to the language barrier (we told them we were vegan and then they told us what meat dishes they had). We chose 5 dishes which were so tasty (especially the aubergines) which including rice came to R30k each. It would be good if they could write what each dish was and the ingredients.

Edit: I didn't read the older reviews about the fish sauce until I wrote this review :'(

Fish Sauce

Ate here last night for dinner and was informed that there was fish sauce in everything except for one veggie dish. Although there are heaps of vegetable items they all have fish sauce except for one. So really there's only that and the plain tempeh and tofu with rice that would be vegan. We still ate here nonetheless since we had already half loaded up our plate before thinking to ask and it was very tasty. It was 30,000 rupiah for a big plate. I think it's maybe 5000 per option. I feel there are definitely more vegan friendly ones in the area.

Pros: Really tasty , Cheap

Cons: Fish Sauce in basically everything, 2 vegan options, plain tempeh and ginger veggies, Mosquitos and flies

Best Warung I’ve ever been to.

Awesome prices, delicious food, huge servings and tons of options! Close to the beach but a nice cheap break from the more expensive restaurants nearby!

However the food was delicious

fast, easy and delicious

Had a full plate of brown rice, some noodles and lots of tempeh, tofu and vegetables and the taste was very good. Paid 35 rp for the whole plate, definitely ok for being so close to beach and sorrounded by more expensive restaurants.
Even though there were several customers, I received my meal rather quickly.
The only negative thing is that there might be some minor communication problems and I'm not quite sure my meal was 100% vegan.

Pros: delicious , fast , cosy venue

Cons: communication problems

not vegetarian?

I'd be very careful eating here, last time I asked they said they used chicken stock to cook their vegetarian dishes :|
I'm not sure if that was misunderstanding or what but I'm not going to risk

Pros: cheap

Cons: possibly contaminated with chicken stock

went there again and this time after being told that the whole bottom shelf of food was vegetarian i asked about the fish sauce and turns out all the veggies are sauteed in it ...

Good, cheap local food.

It's somewhere between a Western and Eastern vibe with the decor.

Serves very good vegan options (as well as meat) just make sure you tell them "vegan, no meat, no egg" because if you just say vegan they may think vegetarian. A minor language misunderstanding.

I've been twice and passed a few more times: always busy with Asians and foreigners, (a good sign if you ask me) and quick service despite that.

Bit of a buffet which they serve you. Point through the glass type thing. The more you have the more it costs, but a full plate of vegan food is around Rp 30-35k 👍🏽 add a cold Bintang for 20k. Plenty of cold western soft drinks too.

Pros: Inexpensive. Fast service. Good vegan options! Eas

Cons: Slightly odd ordering system can lead to slight co

Cheap Warung in new style

Nice hip restaurant but still with the traditional Indonesian Warung-style kitchen.
Buffet with a lot of vegan and vegetarian options. Had a plate full of different things and paid only 20.000 Rp.

Pros: very cheap, buffet with a lot of choices, very delicious

Cheapest eatery this end of town!

It's a classic Indonesian buffet. Lots of vegan dishes to choose from. Great if you are on a budget and can't afford the hipster vegan restaurants.

Pros: cheap, big portions , staff speaks ok English

Cons: not heated , some dishes very spicy
