      Step into Kopi Bale and you step into another country. As soon as the wooden doors close behind you, you'll immediately notice the attractive decor of this beautiful Balinese restaurant. Warm, earthy tones will make you feel right at home; all the furniture and decorations were imported from the tropical island of Bali.

Customers can choose to recline on mats or sit in comfortable wicker chairs. The restaurant is spacious, but seats only 48 people. The owners aim to give the patrons a private meal in a quiet setting.

In addition to providing a relaxing atmosphere, this restaurant serves delicious food. The most popular dish is the delightful Balinese Green Curry (NT$180), which comes with seafood, beef, or chicken. Other tasty foods are the Bali-style fried noodles and fried rice. The chef passionately blends spices to create dishes that are uniquely Balinese.

If you're in the mood for Italian or Mexican food, you can also find Tacos (NT$230), Quesadillas, or Multi-Layer Lasagna (NT$180) on the menu. Hot pots (NT$200) are available.

Lunches are priced NT$160 to NT$200, while dinners are NT$200 to NT$260. The dinner menu has some delectable appetizers, like Deep Fried Fish Chips With Tartar Sauce (NT$180) or Sausages (NT$250).

Cocktail hour starts at 9 pm with a wide variety of alcoholic drinks on offer. On Tuesday nights, patrons who bring their business cards receive a 50-percent discount off all drinks. Wednesdays feature an all-you-can-drink deal for NT$500.

Kopi Bale is nestled on a quiet street near ShiJian University. Ellen, the manager, makes it a priority to personally interact with her customers. In only two months, Kopi Bale has already established a loyal following. Reservations are recommended, especially on weekends. In addition to food, the restaurant sells fine Balinese decorations, furniture, pottery, handbags, and silver jewelry.

For a unique and delightful dining experience, try Kopi Bale--a short trip to the island of Bali!
