Lush, sociable surroundings and fun food and drink 9 Reviews
New Year's Eve offer
Trader Vic’s is hosting yet another fabulous New Year’s soiree. Presenting Parisian cabaret dancers, a wandering magician and a fine-dining international dinner buffet, Trader Vic’s has gone all out for 2015. Dinner is served from 8pm while the night’s celebrations start from 9pm. It’s BD65 inclusive of one welcome drink, grape, dinner buffet and celebratory bubbly or BD10 with just one beverage on arrival (Wednesday)
The lush setting and the punchy freshly shaken cocktails lull you into a suitably serene state. There are batches of exotic bites to pick from, although some are more successful than others. The jalapeno balls are fluffy golden nuggets of spicy cheesiness, and the seared tuna jnaka-ya with Asian salsa is a delicate and tender affair.
Avoid the Trader Vic’s salad, though, which scrimps on the prawns. For mains, the curries are popular and are well executed, while the steaks served with a range of piquant condiments are meltingly good. But even die-hard chilli addicts will find the kung pao chicken with capsicums too fiery to swallow. Still, as long as you choose carefully, Trader Vic’s is a sought-after and sociable venue.
