Food is fantastic. Pork was well cooked and their homemade ice cream is more than fabulous. Friendly service. Nice ambient.

Lovely food and good service.
The wine menu prices don’t line up with the red wine list so was charged more than it read. It needs to be reprinted correctly.

Delicious food in a welcoming atmosphere. Try the stir-fried veggies (capcay). They’re absolutely delicious! As is the chicken curry and lamb curry.

Lovely atmosphere. Food was well presented. Chicken satay was lovely and tender but lacked flavour, as did the spring rolls. Chicken curry main and pork ribs were both delicious and good size servings.

Absolutely loved Nova Balinese Kitchen, from the food to the service. The spring rolls and satay sticks were to die for. I would recommend this place, I couldn't fault anything about this restaurant.

Pork dishes were dry and tough and the fried rice was dry. Chicken skewers were ok but the braised duck was oily.
