One of the island’s favourite Chinese restaurants, Golden Monkey, has just opened in a new location at Tamora Gallery, Bali’s first family-oriented lifestyle shopping village in Berawa.

Many know of Golden Monkey from its flagship restaurant in the centre of Ubud where it has for many years provided residents and tourists with an authentic Cantonese dining experience. With their new opening at the start of October 2021, only two minutes from Berawa beach, this popular Chinese restaurant brings its range of delectable barbecue roasts, dim sum and dumplings, hot claypots and more to the south coast.
