A brand new restaurant in an open-air pavilion on Sanur's main street opened recently. It's known as Naga Eight and it serves authentic, traditional-style Cantonese food.

The original building dates back to the late 1970s when it was home to Telaga Naga, a restaurant operated by Bali Hyatt. Telaga Naga closed in 2013 and the building was restored and redesigned in 2021 after which Naga Eight was established.

The atmosphere here is charming yet casual and it looks particularly enchanting at night when it's lit by hundreds of lights.

There's a variety of seating areas where friends or family can gather to enjoy Cantonese barbecue and stir-fry dishes.

Small pavilions have seating for up to ten people and provide a view to pleasant gardens and small ponds.

The menu combines classical and modern dishes including traditional favourites like roast duck and crispy pork belly. On my recent visit, I enjoyed pan-fried pork dumplings with black vinegar and ginger for my entree. This was followed by a duck noodle soup with mushrooms and coriander then wok-fried beef short ribs with sweet soy sauce and sesame seeds.

The dessert selection was tempting but sadly I had reached ample sufficiency and sweets were not an option on this occasion. Next time I'll pace myself.

Hatten and Two Islands wines were available at reasonable prices. I chose a bottle of Two Islands Cabernet Merlot for Rp248.000, exclusive of tax.
