Batik Restaurant Bar in Bali

Southeast Asian Cuisine in Seminyak

Batik Restaurant Bar serves Southeast Asian cuisine with inspirations mainly drawn from Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia. The restaurant is located midway along Seminyak’s famous restaurant-lined Jalan Kayu Aya, taking over the site of former Khaima Restaurant since late 2016. Inside, you’ll find a chic but laidback dining atmosphere, with a combination of clean, bright white and crème interiors and a lounge area clad in light batik motifs. It’s a great place to chill with cocktails, with lush vertical gardens, both inside and on its open terrace.

For something light, try the small bite selections at Batik Restaurant Bar, such as fresh Vietnamese goi cuon rice paper rolls, accompanied by a sweet and spicy chilli dip (IDR 55,000 or USD 4), or their rendering of Indonesian favourites ‘lumpia’ spring rolls and ‘tahu isi’ stuffed tofu (IDR 45,000 or USD 3), which are both quite healthy treats. Elsewhere on the menu, there’s a selection of Asian bowls featuring the best of each region, from Thai ‘tom yum’, Vietnamese ‘pho bo’ beef soup and Indonesia’s own ‘soto ayam’ chicken soup (IDR 50,000-85,000 or USD 3.50-7).

Onto the mains, meat-lovers can go for the chef’s special Crying Tiger – a Thai-style grilled sirloin that is marinated in a sweet and spicy, lime sauce (IDR 160,000 or USD 12). The sauce balances off the textures and flavour of the tender meat pretty well, without overpowering it with its citric zest. Those in the mood for seafood can try the curry risotto, which comes with a good mix of shrimp, calamari and scallops (IDR 120,000 or USD 9). The menu also features curries and braises, including the world-renowned Sumatran beef rendang, slow-braised in ginger, chilli, lemongrass and coconut milk (IDR 120,000).

Between the two levels of Batik Restaurant Bar is a unique staircase with each step depicting the different batik styles of the Indonesia’s islands. At the bar upstairs, ask for signature cocktails (IDR 85,000 or USD 7) such as the Melon Ball, a blend of vodka, sweet melon liquor and soda, or, go for something that truly represents Bali with the Arak Madu, which is a strong but refreshing mix of arak, honey, lime and soda. Down below, the large terrace with wicker chairs is the perfect people-watching spot, where you can enjoy your cocktail while watching the buzz of Jalan Kayu Aya go by.
