Tukuni Restaurant is a rendezvous for storytellers organized around the common love for traditional Fijian food and the richness of our past. Tukuni is dedicated to serving delicious, creative, healthy and authentic Fijian cuisine that appeals to anyone searching for a true Fijian experience. 
The Tukuni Experience

Tukuni transcends a unique museum themed restaurant, displaying true Fijian hospitality, quality and tastes of its cuisine maintaining the health and organic nature of its ingredients. The meals are freshly made using traditional methods that are imbued with flavours from rural kitchens, and cooked over an open fire or fuel-efficient clay Chula (wood fired stove). 

The menu features delectable produce of the season supplied by rural, hardworking and proud Fijian farmers and fishermen. Features dishes include Ika Tavu (smoked fish), Kokoda (citrus marinated fish in coconut milk) free range chicken, duck, goat and lamb curries, local red rice, maize flour roti and local delicacies such as octopus, shellfish and sea weed and grapes. Our food is prepared in pure virgin coconut oil and handmade ghee (clarified butter) and is prepared fresh daily. Our menu is rich with options for those special dietary requirements such as vegan, gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free.

Tukuni’s natural ecological décor plays tribute to our Fijian forbearers and their way of life, through woven coconut and bamboo, rustic shelving, wood furniture and Masi tapestry on the ceiling. Hand drawn Masi art and old artefacts displayed illustrate depictions of traditional life, farming, fishing and food.

The restaurant has an impressive panoramic view of Tuvu Bay, its hills and the island landscape that sets the real scenery behind origins of the many elements that contribute to Tukuni’s unique character.

Tukuni and the trust FRIEND are entirely environmentally friendly with complete reliance on solar power, recycling of waste materials for new by-products as well as using kitchen and garden waste as compost for the organic gardens that are spread around the property. Guests can take a guided tour of the organic gardens, see the process of making recycled paper from waste paper and fibre, learn the art of making quilled handmade cards, try some outdoor fitness using a 500m exercise track made entirely of natural and recycled materials, and much more.
