Bali, an island in Indonesia that is described by many as the Last Paradise on earth, is a food lover’s heaven! It is also one of the few places that offer plenty of options for the vegetarians.

While I love traveling, one major problem I face on my trips abroad is to find a restaurant that serves vegetarian food.

But with proper planning, I’ve been able to overcome this bottleneck in most of my trips. I’d been to Bali recently and found that it is a paradise for vegetarians, with a plethora of options for people like me.

Jaffles and its numerous variations, Banana Pancakes, Bakwan Jagung, Tahu bacem…The list is endless.

I thought it might be a good idea to share the information I’d collected prior to my trip to Bali. I’ve also given my reviews for the restaurants that I visited. So here’s a list of Indian/Vegetarian restaurants in Bali, grouped by their location…

If you want good quality Indian food, then please avoid this place. This is a fully vegetarian restaurant, which suits us since we’re vegetarians.

But that was the only good thing we found here. They took 40 mins to serve the food (we were the only ones in the restaurant and they probably started preparing the food after we ordered) and the quality of food was bad.

We had ordered a couple of rice items and two side dishes for the rice. They had used the same gravy for both the side dishes. The rice didn’t taste good either.

The price is cheap, but that doesn’t compensate for the poor quality of food. The ground floor has tables and chairs while the first floor has cushions on the floor. They have some nice artistic decorations in the first floor.

This is a nice place to have Indian food. The ambience is good and the quality of the food is great. They have a wide choice of items for vegetarians as well. The walls are decorated with beautiful Indian paintings like the one below:

I was surprised to see a certificate in the restaurant that claimed that they’ve been awarded the best Indian restaurant award(in 2012 if I’m not wrong).

The quality of food in the restaurant didn’t match those claims at all. The ambience is ok, but the taste of food was not that great. The naans were too greasy and 2 different side dishes tasted same.

It is definitely not worth the price. And don’t even think of ordering south Indian items like dosa/idlis. They are terrible. The only advantage is the location. It is very close to the Bali Hyatt beach in Sanur.

  • Little India
    Jalan Cemara, Sanur,
    Denpasar, Bali
  • Savitri Cafe
    Jln. ByPass Ngurah Rai 91,Sanur
  • Zula Vegetarian Paradise (Vegetarian)
    Jl.Danau Tamblingan (close to Hotel Bali Hyatt)

Location: Denpasar

  • Sitara
    Jl. Teuku Umar 137 B Denpasar
    (in front of POP Harris Hotel )
    Phone: (+62 361 ) 8422652/8422653
  • Happy Lakshmi (vegetarian)

I hope this information comes in handy for vegetarians like me traveling to Bali.
