For those craving freshly-rolled sushi, fiery teppanyaki grills, hearty bowls of ramen and cool sips of sake, you’ll be glad to hear that there are many Japanese restaurants in Bali. From the valleys of Ubud to the beachfront shores of Legian, enjoy this globally-popular cuisine served with a Balinese touch!


Ji Restaurant Bali

Ji Restaurant Bali is made up of two distinct venues. The first, Ji at Bale Sutra 1706, is the only restaurant housed in a 311-year-old Kang XI period temple; meanwhile, Ji Terrace by the Sea boasts an undisturbed 180° views of the Indian Ocean, overlooking the iconic Canggu coastline.

Found within the cultural destination of Hotel Tugu Bali, Ji is one of the most unique Japanese restaurants in Bali. Indulge in fine Japanese fusion favourites. The dishes are contemporary & playful but at the same time homey and comforting, based on classical Japanese methods of preparation that are simple, extremely fresh, precise and meticulous.

Fusion examples include Wakame salad & Balinese sambal matah, Kyushu Nigiri with Indonesian basil leaf, Tai Nigiri with breadcrumbs and lightly poached quail egg, Mekatoro Nigiri with avocado & ceviche sauce. Grilled Salmon with Eggplant, salmon smoked with burnt stalk of Balinese heirloom rice.

It’s the perfect hangout spot to be enjoyed with their premium spirits and innovative cocktails in hand. We suggest starting at sunset then continuing on to dinner at this stylish and eclectic Canggu venue, surrounded by ancient art, antiques and trinkets.
