Spent 9 days in Ubud, and this is the only restaurant that I visited multiple times. The food was incredible every time I went. There is so much great food in Ubud, but Melting Wok does it best. I love the location which is less busy than the main street in Ubud, with less motor traffic, and lots of places to grab a meal. The restaurant itself is very small with only a few tables, they take reservations, but I was always able to get in within 15 minutes.

The menu is pretty small and is presented on a couple of blackboards that may get changed slightly daily depending on the specials. Everything I had here was very good. The presentation of the food is top notch, exceeded only by the taste.The curries are outstanding with deep flavor and spiciness if you like it hot, and the noodles are to die for. Make sure you order the Creme Caramel for dessert, it is so decadent and cooling after a hot meal.

The service at Melting Wok is attentive and friendly, this place really has everything I look for in a restaurant, and the food is cheap. Do not leave Ubud without stopping at Melting Wok, unless it's a Monday, They are closed on Monday.

Melting wok is a small warung atop of a set of steep stairs offering a small black board menu. Although the food tastes good, the menu is truly melting wok, with a mish mash of flavours in almost every dish. The food is best described as pan Pacific. It is cheap, cheerful, mixed up food with good service.

This would be our 5th visit to the Melting Wok spread over 6 years and again the food was delicious, we had 1 green curry with chicken and 1 special - pork and potato, both curries were a medium heat and a perfect combination of flavours. For desert we had our favourite chocolate fondue and tried the coconut cream crepe filled with palm sugar - yum. What impressed me most is the consistency of this restaurant- last time we visited was 4 years ago and tonight the food was still prepared and delivered to very high standard we first experienced. I definitely recommend eating here. Please note it is advisable to book - it is well known for its excellent food and service.

This place is so delicious! The food here is outstanding! The service is great as well. I had the coconut curry with noodles and tempeh... heaven! However, the word is out so you will need to make a reservation for dinner. Or, if you go around 3pm, it’s pretty easy to snag a table!
