All you can eat pasta!

Aside from our regular all day menu, we really like to do specials at Same Same Hangout just to offer you something you can’t easily find in Kuta Lombok. One of our most popular specials is definitely our all you can eat pasta!

What can you expect, you wonder?
Well, on our regular menu we have two vegan pasta’s: a pasta funghi and an pesto pasta with grilled veggies. We serve generous portions, accompanied by a few slices of bread to top them off. For the meat lovers among you, we have the possibility to add chicken, beef chorizzo or roast beef to your pasta.

This way it’s a win for everybody, right? Well, almost everybody…
Even though we serve Belgian portions (read: big portions ๐Ÿ™‚ ), there will still be people that would like to have an extra serving… or two…

That’s where our all you can eat pasta comes in! You start out with one portion and if you’re still a bit hungry, you just order another portion. For free. And then maybe another portion. For free.
Great deal!

There are only two rules for our all you can eat pasta special:
1. It’s not available for take away or delivery
2. You eat what you order. If you order more and you can’t finish it all, we put all your portions on your bill ๐Ÿ™‚

If you’re a pasta lover and you’ve got a big appetite, I’m pretty sure we’ll see you soon at Same Same Hangout!

Play games @ Same Same Hangout!

If you’re looking for a place to play board games in Kuta Lombok, then Same Same Hangout is your place to be. We have a big variety of board and card games available for your entertainment! While you’re waiting for your food or enjoying your drinks. Or if you’re just looking for a fun time with your loved ones… Just choose a game and let the loser pay the bill ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s not only families with kids that use our games. Many couples as well as groups of friends have had great times at Same Same Hangout playing games for hours. It’s really great to see people having fun!


There are so many beautiful things to see here and great places to go and explore! But sometimes it’s just nice to sit back and relax for a while. To ground yourself and take the time to enjoy where you are. Not pack your days full of trips and outings. Just be here and enjoy your time.

We’ve always felt that Kuta is a great place to do just that. This town has everything you need right here, so it’s the perfect place for a break from your busy travel schedule.

Same Same Hangout was created to make you feel like you’ve just come home. There are books, magazines, sofa’s, hammocks, fun singalong music and… GAMES! Our WiFi is one of the best in town so feel free to have your own little movie night in one of our gazebo’s if you like.

As long as we see you’re having a great time and that you’re feeling at home here, we’re good. We wouldn’t want it any other way!
So just breathe, take a break and come for a read, a hanging around session or to play games in Kuta Lombok!

New: SANDWICHES!

We’ve tweaked our restaurant menu a few times since we opened last August and we’ve been very happy with the latest version for a while now. We did feel that one thing was still missing that is also very typical for Belgium, especially at lunch time: sandwiches! So we decided to add exactly that for you to enjoy. Grab a sandwich with cheese, chicken, tuna, roast beef or veggies… Eat it here, take it away or get your sandwich delivered for free in Kuta Lombok!

Unique Nightlife @ SAME SAME Hangout

Being located in one of the more residential streets, we had the chance to create a different/unique nightlife vibe in Kuta Lombok.

We decided not to do events like, live bands or live music, well, with a few exceptions of course.

Our tropical garden and the natural feel of our restaurants combined with several lighting effects ( solar lights ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), makes SAME SAME Hangout the place it is ment to be. A nice, relaxing, romantic, family and friends friendly location.

We have over 10 games hanging around, so you can enjoy an evening relaxing and having quality time with the people you are traveling with.

The music choice is also unique in Kuta Lombok. Nice tunes that are being played over quality speakers fill the air with loving songs.

May we invite you to come and give us a try?
We promise we won’t let you down.

See you soon !

Bart and Elfi

Eco Friendly!

Living in Lombok makes us very aware of the environmental issues that arise around the world and especially in developing countries such as Indonesia. We feel that we can all contribute to changing this around and have built our place and our menu with exactly that thought in mind.

We’ve used lots of natural materials for the build and decorations and we try to be as eco friendly as possible on a daily basis.

  • stainless steel straws
  • many vegan food options
  • home grown fruits and vegetables
  • lots of solar powered lights
  • as little plastic wrappings as possible
  • hand crafted cups and plates from the local pottery village
  • water refill station open to everyone
  • โ€ฆ and many more little things that help us make this island a little bit cleaner and healthier for everyone.
