Sjaki-Tari-Us is an education program for special needs children, particularly mentally disabled children, based in Bali. One of their main projects is the Sjaki-Tari-Us school and restaurant is hidden in the corner of the Ubud soccer field, just along from Tutmak, and the CP Lounge. You can support their projects by eating here. There is a nice relaxed feel about this rather basic warung, but it has a great view overlooking the soccer field in town.
The food is nothing special, they serve basic Indonesian meals and some western dishes like sandwiches with a Balinese twist. We feel it is still worthwhile eating here as it supports their program. Next to the restaurant is a small shop selling goods made by the students at the centre, another way to add your support.
This place was listed as one of our kid-friendly places to eat in Ubud, as just next to the eating area there is a large open space which is the school’s activity area where the kids can play. The little ones can also run about on the footy field, while you wait for your food.
If you are in Bali and looking to give a little back to the local community, here is a small way to help.
