Dhyana Pura in the bustling labyrinth of Seminyak, Chez Gado Gado has the appearance of a strong and quiet secret, reluctantly shared.
As a restaurant offering primarily Pan-Mediterranean cuisine with menus thought up by an ingenious Dutch chef – on an Indonesian island – it’s easy to see why the name is an apt one.
