Table8 at The Mulia Bali

For some of the best Chinese dynasty dining in town, look no further than The Mulia Bali’s Table8 restaurant.
Serving up a selection of wonderfully authentic Szechuan and Cantonese cuisine, Table8 adds another string to The Mulia Bali’s already stellar bow, presenting a dining experience that is quintessentially Chinese in everything from the food and service to the décor. Ornate wooden screens, luxury silk furnishings and magnificent porcelain pagodas add up to provide a space that has the perfect ambience to indulge in some of the finest dishes this side of Guangdong.

From 12pm daily, Table8 offers a spectacular all-you-can-eat buffet of epic proportions. From 12-3pm the lunch sitting is a mere 388k++, while dinner runs from 6-11pm for just 428k++. Table8’s famous Sunday Lunch comes in at 428k++, and as if that wasn’t enough, they also offer a special Sunday Dim Sum package for 308k++. If you’re not quite up to taking on the buffet, a special a la carte menu is also available with plenty of favourites to tickle your tastebuds.

It wouldn’t be a real Chinese eatery without some proper tea, so with that in mind I check out Table8’s most exclusive ‘Xuang Xi’ – a blended green tea that is only available here. Bundled into a dried ball are leaves of jasmine and green and red tea with chrysanthemum flowers. The in house tea master then performs his kung fu kettle ritual, using a copper vessel with a metre long spout – more or less juggling the thing as he decants the boiling water over the tea. A few minutes later and the ball has unfurled to reveal a beautifully intricate tangle of tips and flowers with a taste that is subtle, smoky and extremely thirst quenching.

Ready to dive into the impressive buffet, I make a beeline for the roasted meats, filling up my plate with delicious morsels like honey-glazed duck, crispy skin pork belly with plum sauce, and poached chicken slices with ginger. I decide I could probably eat this all day, but reluctantly move on to the live cooking noodle soup station. Luckily this is also beyond delicious, not to mention totally customizable; fill up your own bowl with meaty morsels and fresh veggies and the chefs boil up the lot in a hearty broth before your eyes. Next up I dig into one of the signature baked clay pot dishes. There are a dozen or so to choose from, but I go for the pork and snapper fillet with mushrooms and spring onions. A smattering of dim sum is up next and I’m feeling pretty full, so I switch it up for a couple of dessert options while I still have space left. The mango pudding is to die for, as is the frozen yoghurt with selection of toppings.
A class act throughout, Table8 at the Mulia Bali is an absolute must try for Chinese foodies everywhere.
