Though describing itself a wine bar, tiny Kuta's strength lies in its presentation of several Southeast Asian cuisines simultaneously, most notably Indonesian, of which we have far too little in town. Freestylin' with sates, the menu presents the usual varieties in pairs, then goes on to invent some based on Indian tandoori, Korean kalbi, Thai fish cake, and so forth. A sate assortment is a good bet for a light meal. Other dishes are hit or miss, including an admirable Javanese gado-gado salad, and --though not very authentic--Isaan fried chicken, sided with a lackluster green mango salad. We only wish the flavorings were more intense.
