Bali Thai: Outstanding Service in a Food Court

Diana Chan March 27, 2012 Downtown, Indonesian, Thai, Three Beakers

Under Harbour Center is a food court that looks very outdated, but in the food court is this family-owned Thai/Indonesian place – Bali Thai. MeatLover suggested we go here for lunch since I asked her to take me to some Indonesian places. This place doesn’t look like much, but it’s their amazing service and attention that keeps their customers coming back.

Lunch is really cheap for under $7 and the staff make sure you leave happy.

I ordered 2 items on rice. I got the stewed eggplant and 3 chicken skewers on saffron coconut rice. They also wondered if I wanted more rice, but I declined since I don’t really enjoy rice. When you do go, you can always ask for more rice at no extra charge. The rice was very fragrant, but the spices of the eggplant were quite strong and over powered the taste.

Even though I ordered a 2 item meal with rice, they gave MeatLover and I extra vegetable fritter. Add the peanut sauce cause its good. It was so good, I could have eaten these all day. No joke! I’ll definitely be back for some more lunch when I’m in the area.

Overall, the food is decent depending on what items you add to it. I would go back just because of the nice service they provide, plus those vegetable fritters are so good.

Words of Wisdom:

  • Under $10 meal
  • Awesome service
  • Larger portions if you ask for it
  • Closest Skytrain: Waterfront

    I went there once, but had a pretty bad experience eating there. I think I got their glass noodles, which had an awful, fishy taste, and their chicken thigh, which was pretty dry. I’ve avoided the place ever since, but perhaps it’s gotten better and got some redeeming choices!

      I saw Rosemary on my way down and I thought of you.The place seemed decent for the price, but I heard the owners have changed
