Warung Nuka, Tuban, Bali

Firstly, don’t confuse this place with at least one other with a similar name on the Isle of the Gods.




It’s just across the road from the Hotel Harris, which is a familiar sight to all who travel from Ngurah Rai Airport towards Kuta and Legian.

Both the beer and the fish n chips are supplied by very cheerful, pretty waitresses – one of whom reminded me incredibly of a friend of mine who hails from Malang, East Java.

But since the Warung Nuka was the scene of a reunion with important people I’d not seen for some time, there wasn’t much opportunity to chat with the staff, delightful though that prospect seemed.




A large Bintang was just Rp.45,000, and my chosen meal cost Rp.60,000. It wasn’t quite what you find in chippers British or Australian, but it was very edible. Meanwhile, my companions opted for Indonesian food, since they don’t live here, and both praised the meals they had.

The menu includes a wide variety of Western and local dishes, Friendly, speedy service and fair prices. I recommend this place.
