Balinese Chicken4.4/5 (BASED ON 5283 reviews)
With so many styles of curry in the hawker markets in Bali, Indonesia it was hard to select just one to try, so we’ve taken inspiration from a variety of them. You can use whole drumsticks and thighs in this, as is done authentically. It’s an aromatic curry with coconut, coriander and kaffir lime leaves, the prized signature aromatic ingredient in Indonesian dishes!

Strange mix of creamy and spicy without the 2 elements working together. My least favourite dish so far

Brilliant unless you have a beard then don’t eat it with guests nice spice to it and tonnes of flavour
Craig - Aug 17, 2019
So unbelievably tasty! Loved the flavours, and just the right amount of spice. Use full fat coconut milk and fry your chicken in ghee for an even richer taste. Will be ordering again :)

Enjoyed this meal. Slightly too much heat, but otherwise good. I added mushrooms as well as green beans. Like to have plenty of veg in my meals.

Great using chicken thighs
Martin - Aug 13, 2019
Ordered by accident as it has a 3 chilli rating! We used about 40% of the curry paste and it came out spicy but edible, I think if we had used it all it would have been painful and nothing but chilli heat, no other flavour.

Wow! I am so impressed. I’ve spent a lot of time in Bali and I must say, this is the only one I wasn’t looking forward to trying incase of any disappointment. Just finish eating it and it is so so good. Perfect flavours. Am ordering my next box now. Thank you simply cook as I make my own pastes etc always and can spend hours per day in the kitchen but will not now I’ve tasted this
