A Touch of Japanese Culture in Bali
Located in the in the InterContinental Bali Resort, KO Restaurant & Bar is an award-winning venue that has been a very popular destination in Bali for exquisite contemporary Japanese cuisine. Like everything else in the InterContinental Bali Resort, KO was designed with the idea of creating a signature Japanese dining experience but with an authentic ambiance as well as a Balinese context.
Keeping this in mind, KO has been designed with a subtle infusion of Balinese architecture and Japanese aesthetics, a unique blend that captures the essence of both cultures. The cuisine, however, is unmistakably Japanese as it borrows from Japan’s wide-reaching art and culture. This establishment has been designed to offer three separate and distinct dining experiences that can be accessed by open-air walkways amidst gorgeous Japanese gardens.
At KO, we believe in offering dining concepts like no other but we leave the choice up to our customers. We have curated three distinct experiences that all provide different types of menu options and settings.
Teppanyaki is an interactive experience that diners always enjoy in large groups. Grilled Japanese specialties are always satisfying experiences but the chefs at KO, add extra flair and style to the preparation, which feels like a personal performance. It has a feel that resembles performance art, so you will be entertained while feasting on mouth-watering, freshly grilled meat. While teppanyaki is usually enjoyed by sitting at one of our dedicated teppanyaki counters, you can also opt for more discreet dining options. Traditional Japanese style “tatami” dining rooms are available. These rooms can accommodate up to 20 people, perfect for large groups, big families and corporate teams. You can order from a la carte menus here.
The main restaurant area is a sophisticated dining room. We ensure that that the atmosphere remains informal and inviting. Guests can choose from the fresh seafood that we bring provide for the best in sushi, sashimi, and tempura as well as a wealth of other Japanese dishes. Other delicacies include salads, meats, and fish dishes as well as other delicacies.
Last but certainly not least, we have The Cocktail Lounge, the ideal spot to enjoy drinks pre or post-dinner. The Lounge has an extensive cocktail menu that has a great selection of hot and cold sake as well as sake-based cocktails. Our exclusive range of alcohol also has a selection of Japanese beers, if you want a change of pace. Dining options are still available here or just outside in the Japanese-style garden terrace.
You can enjoy the delights from KO and our other wonderful restaurants at the InterContinental Bali Resort. Stay with us and check out the rest of Jimbaran, one of Bali’s favorite neighborhoods.
