Nestled amidst the lush surroundings of Nusa Dua is Maja Restaurant, a culinary gem that seamlessly combines enchanting ambience, delectable Asian cuisine and top-notch service. Situated near the entrance of Amarterra Villas Resort Bali Nusa Dua, Autograph Collection, an elegant all-villa resort, Maja Restaurant draws inspiration from Majapahit, an ancient empire that flourished in Java from the 13th to 16th century, evident in both the resort and the restaurant’s design.

With its airy atmosphere, Maja Restaurant features all-glass walls surrounded by lush greenery, a picturesque fish pond, an outdoor dining deck, as well as the resort’s majestic façade that resembles majestic temples from the Majapahit era.

For diners seeking vibrant flavours, the Maja Beef Rendang is a must-try. This special dish at Maja Restaurant is a rendition of Indonesia’s famous Beef Rendang, crafted from a cherished family recipe. Slow-cooked to perfection, the tender beef is infused with a rich blend of traditional spices, coconut milk and aromatic herbs. The result is a symphony of flavours, where the sweetness of coconut contrasts beautifully with the earthy notes of lemongrass, galangal and kaffir lime leaves. Each bite offers a harmonious balance of textures and a depth of taste that reflects the culinary heritage of Indonesia.

For a taste of Balinese cuisine, savour the Ikan Bakar Sambal Kecombrang, showcasing the region’s love for seafood and vibrant spices. Fresh red snapper is marinated with a fragrant blend of Jimbaran spices, including turmeric, ginger and garlic, before being grilled to perfection. The highlight of this dish is the Sambal Kecombrang, made from ginger flower, chilli peppers and lime juice, adding a zesty kick and a refreshing citrusy note to the tender fish. 

For a taste of Korean cuisine, the Gojhucang Grilled Octopus at Maja Restaurant is a standout dish. Tender octopus is marinated in a gochujang-based sauce, a Korean staple made from fermented chilli peppers and other savoury ingredients. Grilled to charred perfection, the octopus boasts a smoky aroma and a delightful caramelised exterior. The gochujang sauce adds layers of umami and a hint of spiciness, making each bite a savoury sensation that showcases the bold flavours of Korean cooking.

Transport your taste buds to Thailand with the green chicken curry, a classic Thai dish reimagined at Maja Restaurant. Tender chunks of chicken are simmered in a velvety green curry sauce, made from fresh green chillies, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves and coconut milk. The result is a creamy and aromatic curry that balances the heat of the chillies with the sweetness of coconut, creating a comforting and flavourful dish that pairs perfectly with steamed jasmine rice.

To complete your dining experience, enjoy refreshing beverages and a selection of Asian desserts representing various regions.
