The weather in Ubud is always just a little cooler than the rest of the island and therefore these conditions have a direct influence on the type of food that is served. Dining Corner at Kayumanis Ubud specializes in authentic Thai cuisine and there is nothing better than a steaming hot bowl of Tom Yum Gai to warm things up.
