restaurant review #267 – This review is from a visit to Bali James in 2019 (before the lockdown and COVID19measures). Although it’s from a long time ago, I still like to post it for archival reasons for myself, as I like to have the photos and impressions on my blog!
Bali James is an Indonesian restaurant (well the name does give it away!) in Breda, the Netherlands. Breda is just across the border from Belgium, not so far from Antwerp. The restaurant is just outside, but within walking distance from the city center.
There are plenty of Indonesian restaurants in The Netherlands (given the historical link with the country), but unfortunately they are a rarity in Belgium. So whenever we are in the Netherlands, we try to go to an Indonesian restaurant, because they always have vegan dishes availble, and we love the cuisine!
We asked for the vegetarian ricetable, and to have not any dishes with egg included (was no problem). The waitress said there were two dishes with egg. They were replaced by a double of the other dishes that are already included in the ricetable (pity they couldn’t relace them with something original). That meant that there was less variety than other rictables that we have eaten at Indonesian restaurants.
The ricetable was 24 euro per person (a bit on the expensive side).
Service was very quick and friendly.
The restaurant room is not accessible: there is one large step to get in. Didn’t see an accessible toilet.
Toilets were clean.
All in all: fair, albeit on the expensive side. We’ve had better vegan rice tables for that price at other Indonesian restaurants.
This review is from before a visit before the lockdown, so please be aware that the setting, menu, etc may have changed meanwhile.
