n Bo & Bun Restaurant, Seminyak, Bali
Not wandering too far from the villa we chose a restaurant for our Christmas dinner. How did we choose it? We walked past it, it looked cool, we looked on TripAdvisor and it rated good. BUT there was no room at the Inn (yes it’s Christmas), according to Chope. So I researched further and booked us in to Bo & Bun Restaurant, Seminyak, Bali. Funny though as we walked past the other, it was empty and they were trying to drag people in off the street. After our dinner seven people all concurred that we were so happy the other place was ‘full’ because our Christmas dinner will be up there with the best dinners ever.
I kid you not, Bo & Bun Restaurant, Seminyak, Bali, is up there as one of the best restaurants ever visited by family Kennett. The food is of this world, as you will see from the photos below. The staff are absolutely wonderful, albeit a little forgetful when it gets busy, the ambience is incredible, the decor is stunning, but the Christmas music could do with some work AKA a few more songs in the tape loop please. But all in all this place would be give an easy 9 out of 10. It is quality and should be a MUST visit for anyone in Seminyak/Bali. You simply have to.
TripAdvisor rate this as #41 of 473 restaurants in Seminyak. OK, OK I hav not eaten at #1-40, but I would definitely have this placed higher up the leader board. It is seriously some of the very best Vietnamese food I have eaten, both in and out of Vietnam. The presentation was exquisite (I hope my photos do it proud). And the value for money $$ was exceptional. This restaurant is one of three under the Group called Eat Company. Next door is Prin-ci-ple, and they also have Lantern pumping out Indian fare. Stealing from their website now – I LOVE this kind of thing… It’s food passion, and this belief surely came out in what we ate tonight…
“Established in 2014, EAT COMPANY started as a humble idea to create and collaborate personal hospitality and honest food. It is our passion and purpose to consistently harness the two together and create something everyone loves and enjoy”

Without further ado, let’s get in to it shall we…
Another thing just to call out here is that there is no plastic at Bo & Bun Restaurant, Seminyak, Bali, and again I am loving that. Bamboos straws, wooden stirring spoons in the drinks etc. In fact I heard later that it is a massive push across the whole of Bali. Something that stood out again when Mary and I shopped in Ubud. Lady asked me if I would like a bag, I said no let’s save the trees shall we. She then offered me what I thought was a plastic bag, and of course I said that’s even worse to offer me plastic. Imagine my surprise when she said they are not plastic, they are made from Cassava. Amazing. A little digging and I found this MUST watch TED talk from 2 Balinese teenagers – Melati and Isabel Wijsen, on their campaign to remove plastic from Bali. Amaze-balls!!! Humbling!!!
