So, we’ve done the hard work for you and found the very best Japanese restaurants in Bali for when those umami urges hit.

The best Japanese restaurants in Bali: FUSION

Quirky creations and bold yet complimentary flavours… Japanese fusion is a must-try for all adventurous foodies out there! From Asian fusion to Latin American-Japanese combos, here’s where you can sample your way through the most unique blends of Japanese-inspired cuisines on the island.

Ji Terrace by the Sea – Canggu

Asian-fusion bites, boho-chic vibes and the crème de la crème of killer ocean views – Ji Terrace By The Sea really has it all when it comes to wining, dining and sunset swooning in Canggu. This breezy and beautiful rooftop spot is crammed full of cultural flourishes, colourful design touches, and of course, some of the best Japanese fusion food on the island. Try the signature Dragon of Ji sushi roll (a chopstick treat of crispy ebi tempura, slick avocado slices and a creamy, slightly spicy sauce) and the beautifully seared Tuna Tataki. You’ll also want to sip on the smokin’ Coco Sexo (inspired by the volcanoes of Indonesia) and – our favourite – the Gin & Tea with Javanese tea and herb-infused gin.
