Kwee Zeen restaurant at Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort offers an extravagant dining experience through its multiple stations inspired by the street-side hawker market scenes of Asia. The variety of buffet sets offer an eclectic range, from Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Indian to local Indonesian favourites. Helmed by Executive Chef Daine Gilbert, the culinary brigade at Kwee Zeen present one of the best Pan-Asian sensations on the island where you can enjoy a fine array of Asian flavours through weekly specials and themed nights, complemented by a warm interior and great alfresco options with garden views.
Sofitel Bali lies north of the main BTDC hub in Nusa Dua, and located under the resort’s impressive round lobby, dubbed ‘the circle of life’, the restaurant’s multiple stations come to view as soon as you come down the curved staircases that encircle the lobby’s massive wooden open beam rotunda. Kwee Zeen restaurant uniquely integrates with this centrepiece, which provides a warm and airy feel to this interactive boutique dining experience.
You can start off anywhere you please. A Japanese cuisine section filled with intricately crafted displays of miniature fishing boats with colourful sushi and sashimi on its deck serve as an appetising start to your journey at Kwee Zeen. Fresh fish slices are carved before you – be it Norwegian salmon, tuna or giant king prawns – while you take your time selecting fresh mussels and clams from a giant ice-filled glass vessel.
A Chinese steam station offers a great selection of dumplings and dim sum, and there’s also a special section featuring a wok corner and fire pit where grilled seafood and meats are prepared. This section offers wonderful sizzling treats from golden Peking duck to juicy, tender meats and spare ribs. An Indonesian buffet serving the likes of ‘mie goreng’ fried noodles and ‘nasi goreng’ fried rice lets you sample local favourites. Kwee Zeen also features occasional special key theme nights that take foodies on a culinary exploration of Asian flavours four days a week.
These themed nights commence Thursdays with flavoursome Thai cuisine, when you can savour the excitingly aromatic Siamese selections such as Lobster Tail and Mango Thai Style Salad, as well as international Thai favourites of Pad Thai and Tom Yum Goong. Fridays present wonderful eclectic Oriental selections, which lets you discover the great tastes of China, from Cantonese, Yunnan, and Sichuan, including authentic Chinese BBQ and roasts, in addition to steam and fried dim sums among others.
Saturday evenings at Kwee Zeen are spiced up with Indian delights, presenting you the rich tastes and spicy aromas of luscious dishes from Delhi to West Benghal, such as beef curries, biryani, daals and wholesome rogan josh. On Sundays, its closer to home as the culinary journey heads south of the equator with diverse selections of Indonesian cuisine, from the smooth and fragrant lamb curry of gulai kambing, and an eclectic range of popular and tasty delights from the archipelago.
Sofitel’s team of attentive and friendly waiting staff, which the French luxury hotel brand fondly refers to as ‘Ambassadors’, are on swift and constant rounds, making sure your glasses are topped up and empty plates cleared for your next trip to the buffet. Concluding your journey, the dessert station is beautifully presented and terribly tempting, filled with a colourful array of cakes and sweets that fills your heart with glee, whatever your age might be. From chilled desserts and crème brûlée, to wrapped candies, gummy bears and fresh macaroons, you’ll feel luckier than Charlie Bucket himself, lost in this makeshift ‘chocolate factory’. Theme nights start from IDR 399,000 per person and buffet breakfasts from IDR 280,000, subject to tax and service charge.
