Bali Hai Ramadan Seafood Buffet (Review)

Happy Ramadan to all my Muslim readers. Last Sunday, I was invited to go for the Bali Hai Ramadan Seafood Buffet. This Ramadan buffet which took place at Bali Hai Seafood Restaurant in Kota Damansara right next to Tune Hotel, is an open-air concept restaurant opened mid last year.



There are plenty of parking lot allocated for this restaurant but is charged for RM1 after 6.30pm. This Bali Hai Ramadan Seafood Buffet starts at 6.30pm until 9.00pm everyday from now until the 9th of August 2013. The menu rotates, and each day the cooking styles will differ so it's better to give them a call to find out more about the menu rotation.


Bali Hai Seafood Restaurant is pork free but they do serve alcoholic beverages to the customers.



Besides the Ramadan buffet that they are currently offering, customers here can also choose to get the ala carte menu from this fresh seafood variety in the picture above or the frozen seafood in the picture below.



From what I know, there's not many seafood restaurants in Klang Valley that offers this much fresh seafood variety due to the limited space in their restaurants. In Sabah, you probably will see this in majority of the seafood restaurants and of definitely cheaper too! :D



Assorted vegetables to have along with the seafood.



Seating capacity of this restaurant is 700 inclusive of 5 private dining rooms and 8 gazebo huts.



The unique selling point for this seafood restaurant is their very own children playground for parents who want to enjoy their seafood or want to have a good conversation with family and friends without having trouble to keep their child entertained at all times. Done with the introduction of this place, let's take a look what dishes they are offering in the Bali Hai Ramadan Seafood Buffet.



Boiled prawn for those who have the craving for some juicy fresh prawns.


Desserts include watermelon, honeydew, date palm and assorted Malay kuih. On the top is the fresh oysters. They serve one of the biggest Oyster flesh that I've ever seen.



Just look at the size of the flesh, it's almost as big as the shell. It taste really fresh and good to have it with a squeeze of lemon and a few drops of Tabasco sauce.


Their dishes are mainly cooked with Chinese style which are mostly stir fried and deep fried.


They have fried rice, fried meehoon, stir fried tofu, fish, clams, squid and clams.


There were also a pot of hot tomyam soup, grilled lamb and barbecue side dishes.


The barbecue dishes are satay, mushroom, oyster mushroom, long beans and chicken wings. Above the barbecue dishes are ulam, a traditional Malay salad.


All the barbecue dishes are sprinkled with chili powder.



They workers grilled the vege, satay and chicken wings at the designated area near the entrance.


Here's what I think about the food offered in this Bali Hai Ramadan Seafood Buffet.


I like all the barbecue vege and I personally like that they sprinkled the chili powder on it but I don't think children can take it. The satay is one of the best satay I ever had in a Ramadan buffet. It's very well marinated, tasty and the meat is tender. I don't really like the chicken wings though cause I find it too salty for my tastebud and I find that this barbecue dishes were best to consume before it gets cold.


All the main dishes were quite good except the lamb cause it's too chewy for me and the deep fried squid which was a little tasteless. Their tom yam soup was too sour, not spicy enough and I prefer it to have more coconut milk in it. They serve plain water and soy milk as beverages but I suggest not to drink too much soy milk or you will easily have a bloated tummy.

Some good news for you folks out there. If you celebrate your birthday (with at least 10 of your loved ones) during Ramadhan at Bali Hai, you will receive a complimentary cake, courtesy of Bali Hai Seafood Village.
