Fantastic as ever

Been coming here nearly 25 years. The decor may occasionally change but what doesn't is the fantastic food, fantastic friendly service and great value. Located in the rear of a block of flats is a locals secret. Give it a try. Indonesian cuisine with a smile ...

We have been going to this restaurant for over 15 years, probably visiting once or twice a year. The food is always good as it is an all-you-can-eat. The rice table is priced at £19.95 and consists of prawn crackers with a spicy sauce, then chicken satay, then soup, then 6 dishes, plus rice and a noodle dish. They will... More

My wife and I make fairly frequent visits to the Bali in Hove. The food never disappoints and TC and family are great hosts. Service is great and there is a wonderful atmosphere in the restaurant. You can try the Malaysian formal buffet or go for the A la Carte. Weekends u get entertainment too. We were here for NYE... More

Great bar food, but a more formal buffet, or a la carte. The buffet is all you can eat and incredibly flavoursome food. Live entertainment some nights which creates a great atmosphere. The owner & staff are so friendly. Great place for a group outing with friends. A must try if you like spicy food.

Just back from another amazing meal at this "hidden gem". We have been using this restaurant for over twenty years and have always come away satisfied. The surroundings may be unusual - on the ground floor of a block of flats - but the food, ambience and service are all special.

Keep meaning to write this review. I hadn't been here for a few years and my partner and myself came last month to the Elvis evening. We had booked a table and was told it would be behind the singer but that was no problem. When we arrived, we were given another better table as someone hadn't turned up, which... More

This place never fails to please, service is attentive and helpful. From the moment you arrive nothing is too much trouble, one of the party had a nut intolerance and every item she chose was checked personally. We had the all inclusive rice table which most other people who were eating there seemed to be having, great choice and a... More

A hidden gem as it is not on a main road but tucked away on the ground floor of a block of privately owned flats at the sea end of Second Avenue Hove. A very good value lunch menu with a Malaysian flavour.

Have been to the Bali Brasserie many times over the last few years but this was my first visit back for a while. The tropical bar and restaurant is very kitsch and 70's, its like going back in time, I love it! From the moment you walk in the door, the service is truly impeccable, all the staff are genuine...
