WITH individual huts in an open space, the Bali Hai Seafood Village in Kota Damansara exudes the feel of dining in a beach resort.
“This used to be the Asia Cafe food court when my boss was asked to take it over. He really liked the ambience here and felt that it would have been wasted as a food court so he decided to open the Bali Hai restaurant in Petaling Jaya,” said central region administration manager Francis Low, 60, during its official opening.
Low said they had been operating in Penang for several years and thought that it was the right time to bring the brand to Kuala Lumpur.
“The location is actually quite ideal for us. There is a mix of residential and commercial areas and there is no other big seafood restaurants in the vicinity,” he said.
MBI International executive assistant Alfa Wong, 32, said the restaurant had individual rooms to cater to corporate clients while the open area was well-suited for families.
“There is a playground for children and they can take a look at our aquariums up-close. We even have sessions where our customers can take pictures with the King Crab.
“This place has a Balinese feel and as Bali has always been a place where people can have seafood within beautiful surroundings, we want our customers to feel that way when they come to Bali Hai,” said Wong.
With a tagline “If it swims, we have it,” Low said they specialised in all sorts of seafood, from medium range to premium.
“We do serve high-end seafood such as King Crab but we also have very affordable, fresh seafood. If seafood is not your thing, we also have regular Chinese dishes with chicken and vegetables for a hearty meal,” he said.
Low added that they had also introduced their range of pork-free dim sum that was available until lunch.
Those looking for a lunch venue can also opt for Bali Hai’s extra value business lunch sets for four (RM98++), six (RM138++) or eight persons (RM178++), where they can choose between four to five dishes from a selected menu, served with steamed rice and soup of the day.
