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.
