The Sayan House, A Blissful Marriage of Bali & Japan

The Sayan House is sited at the edge of Sayan’s cliff in Ubud, in a lovely wooden Balinese house that offers panoramic views of the verdant valley below, and chicly-decorated with Asian and Balinese accents. Operated by the Japanese hospitality firm Plan.Do.See (that also manages Michelin-starred restaurants around the globe), The Sayan House serves up very satisfying causal fine-dining contemporary fare with Japanese and Asian influences, under the helm of Chef Yuki Tatami. Highlights of the fusion dinner were the Porcini Royale Consommé – the consomme is prepared table-side using a Bunsen-burner syphon, the sautéed Foie Gras Nigiri Sushi, and the Babi Guling maki with spicy sauce. What’s surprising is that prices are extremely reasonable for such a premium restaurant. … More The Sayan House, A Blissful Marriage of Bali & Japan
