Today Indian travellers who can not eat other nation food can enjoy Indian cuisine in Bali. Before 2014 it was only 2 Indian restaurants were active at the places of Kuta, Nusa Dua and Ubud, causing the services were really under expectation with high prices. It was often that the travellers have to very patient just to enjoy a meal. Some local tour operator have advised Indian to try other national food to make their holiday easier, like other nations that visit Bali for holiday or other puroposes such as European, American, and Asian in general, even Australian for example they prefer local food of Bali.
Most places of interest in Bali outside the city of Kuta, Nusa Dua, Denpasar and Ubud no Indian restaurant is available. Within this area only local and international cuisines that are available on the way of the tour. More difficult again for those Jain followers. When the sightseeing are organized around Denpasar city, south Bali such as Uluwatu and art villages of Ubud then there is no problem to find Indian restaurants.
The most favorite places for Indian travellers as full day tours are Kintamani mountain, Bedugul mountain and north Bali. In these area there is no single Indian restaurant is available today, and travellers have to enjoy local food or international food.
