Certificate of Excellence
Description: Ji - Japanese Fusion, Fine Wines and Sake Bar - is the only restaurant housed in an original 311-year old Kang XI period temple. The bar is a unique collection of fine sakes, wines & contemporary Asian-inspired cocktails with homemade infused liquors. The cuisine at JI is inspired by the centuries old cooking tradition from Japan, with slight influences from other East-Asian cuisines in a delicate fusion of flavours, featuring some of the finest art of sushi in the island. If you continue to the upper floor, Ji Terrace By THE SEA will take you on a journey to the heart of Indonesia, Japan, India, and Thailand with contemporary & playful Japanese & Asian inspired dishes and a 180 degrees undisturbed view over the sparkling Indian Ocean and Canggu Beach.

We took a taxi ride of almost an hour to come to dinner early and see the sunset from this restaurant. However, despite booking some time in advance, the top floor was reserved for a wedding so we were relegated downstairs - and it kept going pear shaped from there.

After seeing a snippet of the sunset through power lines, we were blasted by loud music from above, then from next door. The latter was beyond their control, but despite numerous requests to turn the restaurant music down, we gave up and (like everyone else), moved. Some people had actually left!

The happy hour drinks were a good price, so we made the most of them!

To be fair, while our experience was not great, the food was pretty good. We had the fried tofu, then sashimi. Both were to a high standard. The sticky chicken and coconut rice dish was delicious, and the mixed tempura crisp.

We ordered as we went - and I would recommend this approach so you can take your time and to space out the food.

We couldn’t find a taxi (!), so took the hotel driver back to Seminyak.

For us the overall evening wasn’t memorable for the right reasons, but if you’re in Canggu this is probably worth trying. Just check to see if they have any events on first.

Most amazing Japanese ever. So delicious, excellent presentation, really cool venue and amazing service. Recommend any of the raw fish dishes and the pork belly and mango salad. Also offers chicken and rice for any small children or picky eaters you want to drag along!

My partner and I didn’t know what to expect when we went to Ji, however after dining there we can definitely say it exceeded every expectation and if anything it was the best food we’ve eaten in Bali! We are both major foodies and Japanese isn’t a favorite but after dining at Ji we’ve complety changed our minds and palates! Ji’s food was nothing but exceptional, it was delicious, presented so nicely and not one plate of food could be faulted. The service was fantastic, the staff so friendly and helpful.
If you haven’t been to Ji yet, don’t even hestitate! Book a table or seat now and start ordering!
We are staying over an hour away but we will be back again, its definitely worth the trip!
Thank you Ji for exceeding a customers expectation and going above and beyond!

The food and the view at Ji restaurant is simply incredible. My partner and I ordered a variety of dishes from the menu and were not disappointed in the slightest. The dragon sushi was by far our favourite, but the others weren’t far behind.

I highly recommend going for the sunset !
