“A fine dining experience with a unique theme. Nice change of pace.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

Visited for brunch on 11 February 2012. It is located within the New Otani Hotel--4th floor of the Garden Tower. Recommend you study the hotel’s map because we got lost twice looking for the restaurant.

The brunch offered a variety of appetizers, salads, main entrees and desserts. Was told the brunch was a cross section of their regular lunch and dinner menus. Of course, everything had a Hawaiian / tropical / Asian theme. This was my first experience with Trader Vic’s, so cannot compare to their other international locations.

The entrees included prime rib, fish, chicken, shrimp dishes, different curries. Desserts included fresh fruits, cakes, pineapple cobbler, ice cream, etc. Everything was very fresh and tasted great.

There was a full bar available. Included with the buffet were sparkling wine, fruit juices, and tea. On certain days, they host live entertainment to include hula dancers, so that would definitely add to the experience.

Service from the entire staff was very attentive even by Japanese standards. It was a Japanese national holiday, so the restaurant was only half full. The restaurant’s general manager visited our table and made small talk. There seemed to be a lot regular customers that he was greeting.

Cost of the brunch was 6600 Yen per person. For the food, atmosphere, and the overall service, I would consider that a very fair price. We were at the restaurant for at least 3 hours, and they did fully validate our parking in the hotel’s parking lot. If not, parking would have been an additional 3500 Yen.

Would recommend to anybody staying in the hotel or in the immediate area who would like a change of pace from other fine dining experiences in Tokyo. It would be a nice place for a first date. I was amazed that 3 hours went by so quickly.
