Raja’s restaurant offers pure Balinese cuisine in a royal setting. The poolside restaurant located only metres from the beachfront is designed to reflect the way a Balinese royal family would dine.
Raja’s is a place where guests can take home more than just beach memories and standard hotel food. The cuisine is seriously Balinese fare, unmodified – a result of more than a year of taste testing, guest trials, and in-house cooking contests. Although it serves original Balinese food, Raja’s is certified as a halal restaurant.
Popular Raja’s appetizers include the award-winning Palem Sari Ulam – steamed seafood in coconut curry pudding – Tum Udang – minced prawn and young coconut steamed in banana leaf and served on a seaweed salad with lesser galangal and garlic chilli dressing – and other unique specialties. Guests may choose to try a soup such as the seafood favourite, Kuah Gedang Sareng – fresh jumbo prawns with young green papaya soup.
Raja’s signature dish is the Bebek or Ayam Betutu- a whole duck or chicken marinated in 19 different spices, wrapped in palm leaves and slow cooked for four hours. It is presented to the guests as a whole piece and then carved by table side.
The dessert menu includes Pisang Rai – poached bananas in coconut batter with honey and ginger ice cream – a village favourite Dadar Gulung – pandanus leaf pancakes with a jackfruit and palm-sugar filling served with coconut ice cream – and other sweet-tooth traditional specialties. Raja’s has won numerous awards including the Hospitality Asia Platinum Award’s (HAPA) Gastronomic Experience – Asia Cuisine..com
