Trader Vic's has lost something over the years. The food except for the Caesar Salad was mediocre at best. Salad was prepared table side and was great.

Hotel restaurants charge a premium, accepted. Trader Vic's prices itself as if it's a 2 star Michelin restaurant. I did enjoy the ribs and calamari, though the cheesecake was a disappointment. 6 small beers for £72 though is daylight robbery. For this reason alone I say avoid. All of the drinks are ridiculously expensive.

Excellent Sunday Brunch. Quiet, casual, and perfect for couples. Beef and pork carving station was very good. Would recommend the free flowing sparkling wine option.

I was there for a X'mas party of my office group. The restaurant was large enough to have a space for a party of around 18. Located at B1 floor of the Hotel New Otani. I saw a lot of international customers enjoying dinner at the restaurant. An international cuisine where you can get tropical atmosphere and menu as well.... More

This restaurant is located in the New Otani Hotel, so it's convenient if you're staying there and tired after a day of touring. The service was slow when we were there and the restaurant was not full. Try to be more adventuresome if you can. We wish we had.

I remember the old Trader Vic's, and was excited to visit this one, which is one of only a few left. Not the same at all. Very limited night time menu, very expensive, at least in my view for what we got. Two people, some of the less expensive choices, one cocktail each, one appetizer, it was around 170.00 American...

Polynesian atmosphere, French cuisine, cooked in a wood-fired Chinese oven and served with the hospitality of Japan's New Otani Hotel. The best of the world come together here.

We went as a group of 4 business associates for lunch last Sunday. The food was comprehensive but the venue itself is very dated like the entire hotel. If you go with it though it's funny as it takes you back to the 1980s.

It's at the New Otani Hotel. We went on Sunday and it offered a buffet lunch with free flow French sparking wine for ¥5,800 or without alcohol for ¥5,000 plus the obligatory 10% service charge and 8% consumption tax. The food was varied and good buffet quality. Service was friendly and attentive even to non Japanese speakers like us. The... More
