November 30, 2022 | By RetailME Bureau

Hikina Restaurant has re-opened its doors at Lapita hotel located in Dubai Parks and Resorts to showcase delicious Pan-Asian fare once again, including traditional dishes from the Far East.

Inspired by the Hawaiian word ‘Hikina’ which means ‘east’ the restaurant celebrates an explosive roller coaster of Far Eastern tastes drawing on an exotic spectrum of textures and aromas to bring guests a sumptuous, authentic and wholesome dining experience.

An ode to the history of the Lapita tribe, which departed Asia on a journey to explore and settle throughout Polynesia Hikina helps diners explore the diverse range of Far Eastern cuisines by elevating the well-known, casual street food experience with gourmet dishes and exclusive cocktails in a serene environment. Guests can expect to be taken on a flavoursome journey that champions Southeast Asian culinary heritage, cooking styles and techniques, offering an enhanced street food dining experience.

“We are delighted to re-open the doors of Hikina, bringing an exciting and unique dining experience that draws inspiration from Southeast Asia’s bustling street markets to recreate a lively, vibrant and relaxed environment within our Polynesian themed hotel,” said Naleem Ariff, Lapita’s General Manager.

At Hikina guests will immerse themselves in dimly lit, intimate dining space with a lively open kitchen that will certainly add to the authentic atmosphere. Additionally, there is a bar and lounge for those wishing to unwind with a drink. Adding to the overall experience, guests will be invited to witness the Ahi-Ahi Ceremony that means sunset in Hawaiian. Taking place daily, this ritual celebrates Polynesian heritage and begins with the blowing of the Conch (Pu) followed by the lighting of the torches to mark the beginning of the magical hour.
