Description: The Sayan House RESTAURANT offers a Japanese-Latin Fusion cuisine. The Chef has used his world-wide experiences of tastes and cooking to unify them in his plates, giving traditional dishes a new look and flavour. In the open-air environment of our home, you may enjoy an elegant yet cozy dining experience in various settings: - Two main dining areas hosting up to 70 seats namely the Dining Room and Veranda. The latter unveils an exceptionally stunning view of Sayan from the edge of its Cliff, overlooking the Ayung river and gorge. - We furthermore provide a private dining space, The Guest Room, which seats up to 10 people. - Lastly, a Teppanyaki grill table with a specially selected menu is available for 7 seats, where our Chef prepares each dish to perfection in front of you. The Sayan House BAR also specializes in beverages - offering a wide selection of drinks from the house's own signature cocktails, wine, to premium whiskey brands. We ensure the quality of our homemade beverages by using only the freshest ingredients. Our bar encompasses three main areas: 1. The main House Pub 2. The first-floor Garden Room where you can enjoy the garden view and gentle breeze, and 3. The Living Room at the second-floor mezzanine, a place to sit back and relax while having a good glass of cocktail or whiskey.

This is a great Japanese restaurant with a teppanyaki slant. Had a great meal one evening in a large family setting. Amongst the best in the city and yet a 4 star rating? In may the place was pretty hot and humid in the evening still. And the teppanyaki counter(which had attracted us in the first place) was not functional. The quality of food is second to none. A high end place, well worth a visit.

Food is Japanese fusion, delicious especially like its chawanmushi.
Fantastic ambience with outdoor view of the valley opposite it overlooking the Four Seasons Resort in Ubud. The garden fronting is so blissful and nice for pre dinner drinks.
Service staff is attentive.
Better make reservation.
Be warned of insects that somehow appear and flying around 7pm which is not harmful. Just ask staff to switch off lights for a moment.
Wine selection is sufficient and good.
Price is reasonable given the ambience, location and food quality.
Highly recommended.

OMG, by far the best meal we had in Bali. This place was just lovely from the minute we walked in. Service was attentive without being in our face, view was beautiful and the food was just perfect. Even the kids spaghetti was to die for. My son had to try and extract it from his Dad after he just had a 'taste'. I just wish we had not left it until our last night in Bali to eat here because we would have certainly made a return visit!

My wife and I went to Sayan House for lunch. We enjoyed the nice view from the terrace. Both of us had pasta which was very good. We wanted to go back for dinner, but did not get a chance. We will go back in the future.
