We chose from the bites menu ordering mandarin duck pancakes, pork belly steamed buns, chicken satay skewers and butter fish sashimi. All were delicious with the steamed buns the stand out dish. For dessert the kaffir lime tartlet with a ‘traditionalist’ cocktail.
The restaurant is lovely and the staff were so friendly. I definitely recommend Ibu Susu.

Went with my kids for H/H by chance and was kindly given a corner table and ended up having dinner, 4 cocktails, 2 beers with my son. Cocktails are good especially the Lycheelicious. Yums! Ordered the veggie rolls which was better then it looked; Ketut chicken was to die for; rendang was good and tender although I think I would have had a bit more spicy; pork belly was super tender and melted in my mouth. Overall, had a great time there. And the team there were amazing- easy going and attentive. Will be back – maybe Tonite!

We hired a driver for the day who wanted to take us to a tourist trap! I had the pork belly which was amazing. The staff is very friendly.

What a brilliant place! We called in without a reservation, planning just to have a couple of drinks. The cocktails were inventive and delicious – the Friends with Benefits which is topped with a blow-torched, caramelised passion fruit and served with a shot glass of prosecco was a great mix of texture and flavours – and we loved sitting at the bar and watching the staff in action. We couldn’t initially get a table but had the option of eating at the bar, which other people were doing and which helped create a really convivial buzz in what is a really well-planned space. As one booking didn’t turn up, we were offered a table – but as it’s a small bar/restaurant it’s probably wise to book in advance. The food was excellent: Ketut’s fried chicken was a delicious and substantial starter; the duck red curry and beef redang were richly flavoursome; the pork belly was perfectly done and the side dishes were excellent. Everything was carefully presented and the service was efficient and friendly. Ketut, the man in charge, is an urbane, experienced and very cool host, who makes customers feel valued and clearly sets high standards for his staff.

Lovely Asian flavours

I visited IBU SUSU recently and enjoyed the atmosphere & the food. The space is a cross between a restaurant & cafe but more upmarket. They have a trendy fit out with natural elements throughout.

The food was excellent: I had the tofu steam buns, the vegetarian summer roll (rice paper roll) and the crispy soft shell crab with papaya salad. All well made & the flavours were great. The only thing I didn’t like was the brown sauce that accompanied the summer roll. It wasn’t for me, however that didn’t matter as they serve it with another dipping sauce.

I also had the Lycheelicious cocktail which was very refreshing.

Price wise, it’s definitely a little more expensive than other establishments around but the quality is worth paying the extra for.

Went for a quick lunch and I was impressed with the quality and sophistication of the food (certainly for the price) as well as the impeccable service! I had the soft shell crab salad and one of the juices – both excellent. The place is also on a mission to recycle, more so than I’ve ever seen anywhere (including US & Europe). Definitely worth a visit!!

We dined here the night of the earthquake in early August. The manager was so concerned with the welfare of the customers that he went around speaking to every table. Excellent customer service and really classy.

The food is great and the cocktails are absolutely incredible. I was sad to leave this restaurant behind in Bali.

So glad we randomly stumbled into IBU SUSU. Reservations were full but they had open seating at the bar. The food was EXCELLENT and the bar staff was exciting to watch. Such great attention to detail. The drinks coming from the bar all looked like works of art. We ate spring roll, pork buns, kang kong water spinach, and fried chicken. Staff is very friendly. Highly recommended! Had no clue it was ranked so high on Tripadvisor but totally makes sense.

This bar is amazing. We went for the cocktails which were some of the best I’ve ever tasted. Good measures and really imaginative flavours. We went twice during our short stay and ate both times. Once we had the salads – the crab salad is a must – and once just for some quick bites – the vegetable rolls are unreal! After a minor incident with a flying spoon and my drink being spilled on the bar, the manager insisted he make me a cocktail of my choice which was unexpected and so lovely. When we were leaving and unable to get a taxi, the manager called a driver for us who ended up being our driver for our stay.
I cannot emphasise enough how wonderful this bar is: tasty food, amazing cocktails and the service is second to none. An absolute must if you’re in the area. Thank you for such a great time.

Yes, what should you say?
Mother milk (Ibu Susu) has the city’s prettiest daughter painted on the end wall. Great food, which is super cozy food that is best when shared. The drinks should be tested, it is pure art and you will certainly order more.
We were at Ibu Susu for the first time in Christmas holidays, it was the best resturant experience for the trip. This summer went back to Bali / Ubud, of course with more visits to this resturant, it has become a wonderful success !!!
Thanks to Ketut and all his staff !!!

Ibu Susu is just awesome. I’ve been there a few times now and every time I try new dishes and cocktails – every bite or sip is sensational! They have a very exciting menu on offer, my personal favourite dishes include the soft shell crab salad and the pork belly steamed buns and for cocktails its hard to beat their lycheelisious martini! The staff are also super friendly and attentive. Ibu Susu is definitely a treat not to be missed. I’ll be returning again and again.

Delicious! Definitely worth a trip.

I think this place lives up to the good reviews. I went back a second time, I liked it so much. Try the pork belly buns, and the papaya salad was also delicious. Friendly and attentive service as well.

Excellent food and service and really clean. Highly recommend a visit. We had Ketul’s fried chicken and soft shell crab and green mango salad which we shared and the beef rendang and roast pork belly with the most delicious crispy smashed potatoes. Our only problem was that the servings were so ample that we could not finish it all. Well worth the money.

Great place to meet up with friends, the food is exceptional a good selection to choose from fresh and very well prepared can’t go wrong ordering the Tempura Vegetables, Pork Belly and Beef Rendang
The cocktails are amazing very creative worth getting there for Happy Hour… You may need to book as this restaurant is getting very popular.

We had a great night out at Ibu Susu – the staff are awesome and super friendly. The food is fantastic and the place has a cool vibe to it. Highly recommend you check it out!

Great place for Dinner or drinks, music was good, staff was friendly, food was really tasty , and the cocktails were amazing (considering the drinks were so good i wasnt expecting food to be also very tasty only few places can do both so well). Perfect place if u would like to have good drinks in a nice laidback environment.
I would recommend the chocolat brulee (desert) which i never tasted before and was extremely good

Wow! This place is full of customers and you need to book before going. Drinks are very cool and you must order house hamburger for lunch 🙂 employers are very welcoming, they helped us in many things 🙂

The food here is amazing! Top quality cocktails and the service is impeccable! We had a few starters.. the pork belly buns are to die for! I had the beef rendang for my main and I was not disappointed! Great quality food I would recommend to anyone in the area

There is a touch of class and imagination about this restaurant. The staff are very well trained by the owner Ketut who has a very warm and easygoing nature. We were not hassled between courses and we appreciated being asked when we would like our next course.
The dim sum was superb as was the tempura vegetables. We ate the starters after enjoying some amazing cocktails- her majes-tea and golden monkey. I had the “tea” which was served in a cup with smoke coming out of the teapot. But unbeknown to me it was dry ice! The flavour was intriguing and included Dom Benedictine with hickory chips.

My main course was a soft crab shell stir fry with black pepper- fantastic. My wife had the beef Rendang which was a large serving. It was very tasty but was not as tender as it should’ve been after 8 hours slow cooking – a little like pulled pork texture but still tasty.

The wine selection was impressive- we chose a bottle of Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2012. Unfortunately it was corked. But there was no trouble in exchanging it for an Italian Pinot Grigio. And that was very good.

We were full so we thought we would skip dessert. So we ordered another round of cocktails. I had one of the best whisky sours (made with Black Douglas) I have tasted and my wife had to have another golden monkey.

But Ketut had other ideas and he presented us with a free dessert to share. It was a memorable rich chocolate mousse with a crispy crust. We thought the whole dining experience was very good value. If you want to enjoy dining at another level then this is the place!

So good at the end we all agreed we had to book again for our last night in Ubud. The soft shell crab, pork belly and steam pork buns were beautiful and the cocktails were divine and slightly different combinations to the norm. For the quality of the food it is well priced and it has a lovely atmosphere with friendly staff.

The restaurant is pretty nice and the food is delicous. The dishes are absolutely authentic. It’s very worthwhile even it is little more expensive. You have to try!

Great little bar. Clean, relaxing and popular and with a great atmosphere. Lovely refreshing drinks at reasonable prices and service with a smile. Baby chairs can be provided.

Had the privilege of dining here on a very busy night recently… totally amazing experience in every respect, all i can say is stunning !!!

Absolutely loved this place, the cocktail list is so inventive, reasonably priced, the food was yummy, the starters were the best, the mains were a bit bland but the staff and ambience more than made up for that!

Cocktails, food, atmosphere…this place has it all. Don’t miss the smoked negroni and the steamed buns with pork belly.

During my visit(s) in March, 2018, Ibu Susu was a relative newcomer on Ubud’s dining & drinking scene. The owner, Ketut, spent several years in Austrailia to up his game in the restaurant & bar industry. After hearing heaps of praise in regards to the cocktails, I stopped by to check them out. After downing a Salted Caramel Espresso Martini, a Frozen Coco Matcha & a Bali Julep, the praise is well deserved. Another night I was there specifically to give the food a try. Ketut recognized me immediately from the previous visit & came over to say “hello.” I had Ketut’s fried chicken, as well as the chicken & prawn dim sum. The fried chicken was good, but I especially liked the dim sum. They have 2 for 1 cocktails during Happy Hour from 5-7. The Pandan Colada is another winner! I asked one of the staff is Ketut is a good boss. He responded “He’s not a boss. He’s a LEADER!” In my opinion, that says it all.

I am literally still sitting in IBU SUSU writing this review. It is actually amazing. Pork belly is amazing. Soft shell crab- amazing. Ketut’s fried chicken- “BETTER THAN KFC” according to the hardest man to please in the world (food wise).
You do need to make a booking- don’t be that guy who just showed up with a party of 8 in a Friday night and expected a table.
You will not be disappointed- IBU SUSU is well worth a visit while in Ubud.

Found Ibu Susu when it started to pour with rain one afternoon. Menu looked great, but when we went in the kitchen was closed because they had such a busy lunch service. We decided to sit down anyway and take advantage of the 2 for 1 cocktails they had on offer. Glad we did, they weren’t the usual cocktails you find during other happy hours. These were unique and delicious. When the kitchen re opened we ordered the soft shell crab, pork buns, rice paper rolls and smoked chicken salad. It was all amazing, fresh ingredients, great flavours.
Service was great too. Highly recommended

We decided to visit for dinner based on previous reviews and I made a reservation well in advance. The restaurant is bright and cheery and has a great atmosphere, the staff are all very friendly and we were welcomed to the restaurant by Ketut and shown to our table. The menu is Balinese fusion with a very modern twist and deciding what to order took some time. We had starters of Butterfish Sashimi, Thai Papaya and Pomelo salad and the steamed pork belly buns, OMG everything was outstanding the sashimi melted in your mouth and I could have eaten another six buns they were so good. For our mains my wife had the chicken satay which she polished off in no time and I had the beef rendang, I like to think I know my Rendangs and this was one of the best I’ve tasted. An espresso martini finished off the night and we went home happy. Please give this place a try if you are in Ubud you won’t regret it, as far as we were concerned it’s the best restaurant in town

The food here is amazing – we returned twice. The flavours are exquisite and the staff are super friendly. Every item we ordered – pork belly bao buns / dim sum / salad / tofu stir fry was delicious and full of flavour. Despite being in demand, nobody rushes you out. Best restaurant in Ubud.

We stumbled across this place by chance and it was packed in comparison to the surrounding restaurants which were all dead at around 9pm. As soon as we sat down, we quickly realised how friendly and attentive, as well as knowledgeable, the staff were.

The food was out of this world. We opted for a mix of small plates – chicken satay with peanut sauce and taramin butter, Peking duck pancakes with hoisin sauce, Korean fried chicken and finally some chicken and prawn dim sum with an extra portion of fries. Everything was incredible and tasted fantastic. So fresh and full of flavour. The drinks were equally delightful and so well thought out being garnished perfectly.

The final touch was how engaged and welcoming the owner was, constantly talking to his customers and just being brilliant in general.

I could not rate a restaurant any higher and would urge anyone in Ubud to make it a must visit destination.

This new restaurant radiates enthusiasm. Everything we tried on the menu has an original little twist, and presentation was beautiful. The young owner Ketut is friendly and involved in everything, which is why his business has taken off. The first night we couldn’t get a booking, but after that we booked a couple of nights ahead. Had a wonderful meal.

On our last night, we had a sick child and had to cancel our ‘return to our favourite restaurant’ booking and get takeaway from Ibu Susu’s. It started to rain heavily. Ketut lent me an umbrella which I was so grateful for. It’s indicative of the restaurant’s friendliness that they offered me an umbrella to return the next day, on trust.

Ketut studied/trained in Melbourne and we felt sure that his food standards, were as good as the stylish, warm decor. Great job. We’re sure your little restaurant will continue to be a big success.

Gorgeous restaurant and bar. Great service and wonderful owner. Delicious food with a great cocktail menu. Excellent value.

Great, great, great

This was the best meal that we are on Ubud! The beef rendang was amazing and duck pancakes we’re delicious. The cocktail menu is interesting and the cocktails themselves are fantastic (and strong). Make sure that you make a booking as it can get quite busy.

I had an amazing time at Ibu Susu – the team was so friendly and the cocktails were just perfect. A great selection of original mixes, using local fruits and flavor. My favourites were the Bali Julep and Salted Caramel Expresso Martini, a must try!

The food could not be faulted as well; absolutely stunning flavours. Highly recommend the beef rendang and the pork belly steamed buns!

Thank you Ibu Susu team for a great night full of laughters 🙂

Love coming here .. amazing exciting cocktails plus great food and good vibes. Awesome for vegan and coeliac . Cheeky but super cool Barman

Found this place on Tripadvisor, and did not regret going! We actually went here 2 times on our 3 night stay in Ubud because of the great experience the first night. Really good food, great service and awesome cocktails. Just go there!

We spent 5 nights in Ubud and visited Ibu Susu 3 times. Having seen the solid TripAdvisor reviews, we actually stumbled across it on our first day and lucky for us it was happy hour. Excellent cocktails and amazing food – wonderful flavours and amazing veggie / vegan options. Lovely ambience in the evening and staff were all friendly. Top spot!

We are visiting Ubud on our honeymoon and came across this website, doing some research on google, it did not disappoint. Fantastic atmosphere, friendly staff and nice to see an owner well involved and working in the business. He has good knowledge of wine and cocktails as these are reasonably priced and very good. Food was very good quality and again great value for money. Brilliant set up and a must go place if you are near UBUD, BALI. Thank you
