The Manisan Restaurant will be the upcoming establishment of Alaya Ubud hotel in this coming month of September. The word “Manisan” means “sweet pickled or candied fruits” in Indonesian. Get your camera ready, expect some happy tummy and “Lunch with a view” as your social media captions. 

This exciting F&B collaboration is managed under Jimmy Gunawan, CEO of parent company AIM Hospitality with the Indonesian household name and street food connoisseur, William Wongso. 

Expect an exceptional Indonesia original taste buds, as the Manisan Restaurant will be serving archipelago’s finest cuisine and classic traditional comfort food from Minangkabau and Bandung, other more esoteric dishes from cities such as Pontianak and Ambon. The restaurant will also feature a Chefs Table with a tasting menu of market-fresh ingredients while afternoon artisan tea and coffee are served pairing home-styled deserts. Every month foodies and guests will be treated with William Wongso’s choice of “Dish of the month”.

Adapting the whole concept of Indonesian heritage, the restaurant will be situated in a rice field adjacent to Alaya Resort Ubud, the 128-seat eatery will be the resort’s second restaurant, a 350-year old joglo (traditional Javanese house) sourced from Central Java, disassembled then reassembled and expertly refurbished by Perth-based architectural firm, Grounds Kent. The end result combines Dutch-colonial architecture with modern features and interior design by Made Wijaya, Bali’s authority on tropical gardens and island-inspired aesthetics.
