The Villa Bali is a restaurant located on Lock Road specialising in Balinese, Thai and North Indian Cuisine. Please call 97502140 for reservations.
Villa Bali is set in a public transport challenged location, but perhaps because of its elusive location, it makes dining there almost like being in another country altogether. Perhaps eating at Villa Bali has renewed an interest to visit Bali proper. The set up of the alfresco diner is definitely a plus as you feel like you are in a little Balinese garden with nooks and crannies of plants, water features and ceramic sculpture offering privacy. There is an eclectic mix of furnishings from regular chairs to day beds and even benches set on wheels. I was able to enjoy the Thai, Indian, and Indonesian platters. Without a 50 percent off (due to the relocation) the platters would have been really expensive. The food is decent Asian fare, presenting with highlights of what makes a country dish special. This is one place that is great if you intend to have a leisurely dinner and take a breather to enjoy the lush foliage.
When you step into Villa Bali, you feel like you have been transported to Bali. The owners have obviously put in alot effort into the decor. I wish they had put in as much thought into the food. Firstly the menu tries to cover too many different cuisine - Indonesian, Thai and Indian. The standard of the food isn't great. They offer an extensive drinks menu but the Mango Daiquiri we tried tasted of mango puree and not much else. They also alternated lovely balinese music which fit the ambiance well with loud Indian music which was off-putting.
The ideal place for couples who want to enjoy a cool & relaxing times after a hard day of work. The price is a bit on the high end. A suggestion is go to the canteen outside to enjoy the same food at a cheaper price first before proceed to Vali Bali. Cos the food that is served at Vali Bali can be found at the canteen. Recommend to try the Thai food cos it is cooked by the wife of David Chia (Executive Chief) who is a Thais
Great ambience for couples. Also good for cosy gatherings and catch-ups. A relatively quiet nightspot to hang-out and chit-chat. Most of the seatings are outdoor so beware of mosquitoes (especially if you don't sit near a fan).
