This popular little gem has been a true 'warung' for well over 20 years. A warung is a public, casual place to eat, often attached to one's home. People in Balinese villages visit a warung at least once a day to eat, socialise and relax which is exactly what Agus and Mary Ida Bagus offer amidst a Balinese oasis featuring some of the most refined Balinese food you'll find in Melbourne. In fact, as well as a loyal local following, Warung Agus is well-known internationally, and especially for its suckling pig.

Look out for the lush, green garden with palms and parasols on its Victoria Street footpath and let Mary, her two lovely daughters or staff guide you through a vibrant, colourful cuisine centred around rice, flavousome chilli and garlic-based sambals or pickles, thick peanut sauces and sweet kecap manis amidst a myriad of aromatics that will tantalise the tastebuds. The food is refined, well-balanced and as fresh as can be, with chef-owner Agus strolling down to the Queen Vic market every morning to pick up the goods.
