The newest location at Hilton Dubai Jumeirah holds true to the brand’s original values as a quality restaurant and dining experience.
Stepping into the completely redesigned space, customers see canoes imported from the Taiwanese Lanyu “Orchid” Island hanging from the ceiling,
tribal masks from Papa New Guinea adorning the walls and Japanese fishing net orbs hovering above tables, and every table is watched over by a hand-carved, one-of-a-kind Tiki statue.
An original painting created by the namesake himself, Trader Vic, hangs over the bar. Featuring more than 7,000 square feet, the restaurant space allows for different types of seating. Semi-private booths by the windows will entice big groups, one-on-one diners can enjoy a raised center area, and those who want to be close to the live music will find a spot in front of the stage.
The large outdoor terrace offers a view of the Arabian Gulf looking onto The Palm Jumeirah.
On entering the hotel’s lobby, customers will follow the huge hand-carved wooden Tikis up to the venue. There is a total of 34 Tikis inside, ranging in size, shapes and type of wood—each with its own name and backstory from across the Polynesian countries. As with all Trader Vic’s restaurants, the kitchen houses a Chinese wood-fired oven, a staple for many of the menu items.
