In the night, the neon, twinkling and glistening colorful lights of Restoran Bali Hai along Persiaran Gurney, Penang draws you like "A moth to a flame".
The restaurant is quite unique with a huge tree growing out through it's ceiling in the middle of the dining area ( Good preservation's practice).

Thatched Attap roof decor make the place feel like a mini resort with a relax ambiance.

The restaurant's tag line "IF IT SWIMS WE HAVE IT" fitted them perfectly. At one side of the restaurant, there were many decks of glass aquarium filled full with live local and exotic seafood.

It is a place to tuck into fresh local and exotic seafood and Chinese cuisine with friends or family in a relaxed atmosphere.

The restaurant's location is 5 star with a sea front view and parking is ample along Persiaran Gurney.

The outside view of the restaurant-so enticing!

Decks of aquarium filled with live seafood and colorful tablecloth.

The mighty tree in the middle of the dining area.

Garouper, Geoduck, River Prawns and Crabs- (center) F**** gave a thumbs up for a delicious dinner.

Kam Heong La La (Clams) was fresh with a tangy and fiery flavor from the sweet bean paste and bird's eye chillies-Rm12/

Claypot Taufoo with assorted Seafood and vegetables- flavorful and the gravy was perfect with White rice-Rm15/

Assam Tilapia fish-the meat was white and fresh with a firm texture-Assam (tamarind juice) gravy was absolutely delicious- garnished with aromatic Mint leaves- Rm 26/

Salted Duck Egg Crabs-the meaty Crab cooked with Duck egg was flavorsome and fine in texture-the best part was devouring them bits by bits with our fingers and licking up the Duck egg coated shell, too!-Rm66/

Total bill:Rm165
