Bayleaf On Brisbane
The restaurant is located in the Quality Inn Airport Heritage Motel in Hamilton, with a ground level eatery and alfresco dining. The wooden deck outside is laden with Balinese décor such as bamboo umbrellas, Buddha heads and lounge seating. Inside the restaurant are regular dining tables, booths and a well-stocked bar.
It’s not often that you’re able to indulge in a Balinese feast. Whilst there are several appetisers, mains and desserts on the menu to choose from, Bayleaf suggests ordering the Balinese Rijsttafel. This is a feasting dining option which allows diners the opportunity to taste a sample of their most popular traditional dishes, such as Balinese curries.
The Chef also provides a palate cleansing soup of the day between appetizer and main, which tends to be a chicken and vegetable kind.
The Rijsttafel is inclusive of pork, chicken and beef sates too. Each served with complementing sauces; peanut, green papaya and vegetable chilli salad, and soya sauce.
For dessert, you can choose out of three delectable dishes, with the Kue Bali being a favourite. These are traditional Balinese rice cakes served with coconut.
Bayleaf on Brisbane stocks most spirits, wines and beers. The restaurant does have a selection of their own wines, which are sourced from South Australia.
