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.
ftf, if you are going for indian food, be specific and ask the ordertaker to repeat.
I ordered for 4 rotis and navaratna korma, guess what I was given two bowls of navaratna korma!!! and no roti - (how to eat macha) - hoped they had ppl who knew the basics of the menu. If it was not for the ambience of the place, that guy would have had it.
Apart from that, it was a good exp - the ambience was awesome, the taste was good, the island punch was great.
And finally the bill - it came to 90$ for two, was kinda of ok - if it was not for ambience then.... ;)
Relaxed, casual, and resort-like atmosphere makes this place perfect for drinks. Food is ok if you're looking for bar snacks, but for anything more substantial I would probably go elsewhere.
