“always OK and affordable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

The Indonesian restaurant Bali exists already for ages, that is as long as I live in the neighbourhood, about 45 years. In the old days it was one of the Philips Cy favorites (Eindhoven has been Philips Town and is still Light Town as first light bulbs of Philips have been produced here. The owners of Bali changed during the years, the menu changed. But the food is still good and good taste Indonesian with the Dutch wink and the prices are still moderate.
Nicely located in the Centre, at walking distance of the railway station.

“Eindhoven: Classic Indonesian Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

I have visited the restaurant Bali a couple times a year for at least twenty years. It is a nice place to meet up with a small or medium group. Order the "Super Bali Rijstafel" for all and you will have a diverse selection of tasty indonesian items to sample. Choose between three types of rice (rijs): white (witte), yellow (gele), fried (gebakt) and / or noodles (bami). To eat, put some rice or noodles in the center of your plate and then surround it with a selection of goodies. Repeat this process until completely satiated or you clear the table. My beat is on the former. Beer is a good choice to accompany but whatever you like is fine.

If you have some room afterwards, try the Coupe Dame Blache. Vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce are always a good choice. It may also help chill the heat if the spices are a little too much for you.

Enjoy !

“Poor!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

We found the food underseasoned to no taste. We ordered a set menu and it was simply not delicious. But the service is good. There's an unpleasant smell inside. The surrounding looks untidy including the waiters. This restaurant seems to be lacking more than what they have. I don't recommend this. And it was not cheap!

“very good rijsttafel, restaurant rather oldfashioned, tough...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

Food was very good, in the tradition of the best Java rijsttafels. Very tasty and plenty of choice, even if the best choices were for 2 persons min. But the restaurant would deserved some refurbishment, the atmosphere was rather sad and service was not very smiling... Staff was friendly and available anyhow and there was prenty of space. Better to come here as a groupand create the atmosphere on your own !
