I last reviewed this place in April, my opinion has not changed since then. The food remains awesomely good, service prompt and friendly and the prices very reasonable. We visited on a very hot day and I found myself struggling and feeling unwell with the heat, the staff were concerned, got me more cold towels and water to make sure... More

Stumbled upon this place and was so pleased I did. The satay ayam is the best Iv tasted... And Iv had heaps. Satay comes in a bamboo boat to dip or pour! My husband had the chicken with Indonesia spices, chicken cooked beautifully. Spices smelt amazing. Fantastic friendly service. Love this place!

I came to the smiling frog on multiple occasions, ordered chicken cheese burger the first time and the second time nasi goreng. The cheese burger was really good and the nasi goreng with chicken was hands down the best nasi i've ever had in my life (i've ate alot of nasi in my life) i definitely recommend this to everyone...

Best Restaurant we have been to in Kuta. They offer quiete a range of food as well. Everything from indonesian, western (e.g. awesome burgers) or mexican (sounds weird? Yeah, thought so too; but the fajitas were fantastic). Breakfast, Lunch and dinner meals are equally awesome. You gotta try - you will not regret it I promise!

Cold scented towels when you arrive, complimentary peanuts, spotlessly clean, prompt service, fresh salads, great calamari & chips, lovely fruit smoothie and a cold Radler - and the price was a bargain. Don't walk by this great little eatery.
