Description
An utterly authentic Indonesian restaurant in London's West End, Bali Bali goes from strength to strength, constantly gaining new fans among locals and visitors alike. Classically decorated in simple tones and unfussy furnishings, Bali Bali has a pleasingly relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere and efficient service from staff who know the menu well. For the many years that Bali Bali has been a fixture on the London dining scene the kitchen has only improved, perfecting the traditional regional Indonesian dishes which delight customers with their balance of flavour and heat. The lunchtime and pre-theatre menus are an ideal introduction to Indonesian food or, if you can't decide, simply give chef free reign over your dining experience.
