Mr. Nyoman Sumertha started his first business in 1988 by collecting artworks of Ubuds artists and also foreign artists living and working in Bali to be displayed in his own gallery (Sumerthas Gallery). His great expertise in assessing every piece of artwork combined with his outgoing personality, ability to treat customers in family manner, ability to show honesty and respect to customers, makes this gallery gained a tremendous performance.
Many customers asked him to provide other supporting facilities to attract more visitors. Then, he decided to built traditional restaurant, named Tepi Sawah Restaurant and Bar. The name of Tepi Sawah is Balinese words, which means side of the rice field (Tepi mean side, Sawah means rice field). Nowadays, this restaurant is very popular among public policy maker, Indonesian celebrities, top executives, and of course customers from all over the world as the best place for enjoying Crispy Duck and Fork Ribs Balinese style in Ubud. The competitive advantages of this restaurant are: good location and atmosphere, good food and drinks, good service, and above allvery good value for money.
Furthermore, to help visitors find gifts for his beloved family and friends, close to the gallery was built Mesari Boutique. In this boutique you can find impressive cloths, bags, classical jewelries and accessories, and attractive handicrafts.
