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.
