Ranked #113 of 255 restaurants in Seminyak
Cuisines: Asian, Indonesian, Australian, Continental
Dining options: Breakfast/Brunch, Reservations, Late Night
Description: The MEJA experience starts the moment you turn onto fashionable Oberoi street in the Seminyak district of south Bali. Just look for the blue on the left. Because set like a glowing opal among the other glittering boutiques and restos is the New Meja Kitchen & Bar. With a striking, modern façade of louvered steel, one look at this two tiered venue and you know you are going to have a great dining experience. Even the understated neon sign is cool. Mixing a modern menu with traditional respect, with plenty of parking out back, you don’t just enter this restaurant, you glide into it. The food is out of this world, ranging from such exotica as an almond crusted Mahi cooked with a chive butter mash to a Coffee rubbed cheese burger that is worth a drive from Jakarta. Once inside you will immediately feel at home. Upstairs is being developed as a chic bar and lounge, that offers a bird’s eye view of all the action of Oberoi street. A great place to watch the dusk fall upon the nightlife of the street. All in all, Meja is an affordable one stop shop for a dynamite dinner and an upstairs lounge experience. A great place to kick-start any adventurous evening in Bali, Meja is set to become a destination restaurant for any lovers of great food and even better memories.

Firstly would like to thank Sarah, the beautiful PR girl who welcomes everyone and remembers their names on subsequent visits. She made us feel very welcome without being over zealous. When you are on holidays it is the experience of meeting new people and conversing with them that is the making of memories. We will not forget Sarah or Kadek... More

The design is really unique and the food taste is also good. We really love the Lemonade as well but need bit consistency for the food. Overall, the atmosphere is nice and the staffs are friendly.

Have eaten here twice - first time loved it so we retuned. Second visit very disappointing - mahi mahi very salty and no meat on the pork ribs at all. Staff very good when we informed them, but free coffee doesn't make up for bad food. The band in the evenings is also so loud you can't have a conversation... More
