Best New Eats in Bali

Venture out of your comfort zone while travelling and try out these hand-picked new restaurants while visiting Bali, from a home-style Indian meal to a smorgasbord of beautifully made desserts in Canggu.

Holi Curry House 

Born from the idea of serving satisfying home-style Indian meals to travellers and locals, Holi serves food created from authentic recipes from the chef’s grandmother, with flavours hailing from Singaporean, Malaysian and Indian cuisines, that can be best described as Tamil. With a menu that rotates daily, the restaurant is offering guests six different types of seafood, meat and vegetarian curries. In addition to this scrumptiousness, Holi has also whipped up a fine selection of home-made chutneys, poppadums, vegetable sides, condiments and more for a complete dining experience. Open daily from 12pm to 9pm, Holi Curry House can be found in both Canggu and Sanur.

Koral Restaurant

One of the highly popular dining destinations at The Apurva Kempinski Bali, Koral Restaurant has a charming quality that can’t be found anywhere else – by which, of course, we mean the famed aquarium that is the restaurant’s pièce de résistance. With talented chef Andrea Astone now at the helm, Koral Restaurant is even better, offering tantalising tastes and creative culinary creations that start on your palate and linger in your mind for much longer.
