“Great food”

Kanu by Lance Seeto
Ranked #29 of 131 Restaurants in Nadi
Price range: US$12 - US$35
Description: Fiji's first Gastropub Experience... it's a journey of Pacific island gastronomy. We use our native ingredients and traditional techniques to create an exciting but affordable dining experience without pretension. Chef Lance Seeto has spent years travelling throughout Fiji, venturing to new regions to hear the stories and absorb all he can about the culinary culture. His travels and the native ingredients sourced from local farmers have inspired him to create a redefining menu that combines traditional Fijian gastronomy with modern techniques and influences from across the Pacific region. The restaurant name KANU has significant meaning on the experience. KANU, is the colloquial pronunciation of ‘canoe’, and just as this vessel opened up the world of the Pacific and beyond for Fiji, so too does our restaurant open the eyes of our guests who are taken on a journey to explore the flavours and influences of new Fijian gastronomy.

Kanu by legendary Chef Lance is a treat not to be missed if you're in Nadi. Lance creates and weaves signature dishes comprising of local ingredients that leave ones mouth salivating and wanting more. I must acknowledge that I had a review that had kept me away from this place, but i decided to try it to believe it and i was glad I did. We ordered this platter that feeds 2 but really it fed about 6 of us....fish, crab, lobster, duck, poke all in the plate with its fusion of local spices and flavor....suffice to say, we loved it all. It's one place in Nad, i will certainly come back to....

Great $10 Deals on Monday, i had the lamb chops chaser that comes with a beer its nibble portions but it tasted fantastic great beer meat combo. the $10 Burger tasted exactly what it was a $10 burger nothing great patty or flavor, if you like your buns toasted id recommend telling them as mine was barely toasted. Tried the Sichuan Nibbles and it was great not to heavy on the spice great on the flavor.

so much flies outside, really need to invest in one of those bug machines as it made me lose my appetitie seeing a fly land on food i wouldnt want to touch again. Theres a difference betwen a few flies and alot and outside kanu has alot. Their seemed so much staff for a small place but noone was standing outside even though tables were occupied always had to wait for one to bring someting out to give an order. Getting a simple beer order took awhile and since staff were changing shifts kinda had some mixups so orders took longer that it should be.

Menus are evenly priced imo and the weekly deals they do are fantastic to explore more of what they offer. worth trying

Do not get Phad Thai. Extremely heavy on tamarind sauce and Kokoda wasn’t so fresh. Tasted like canned coconut milk. Although their special for the night steamed fish was ok.

We had kokoda, crispy chicken, sticky lamb and steak and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The staff were well versed with the menu and drinks selection. The outdoor seating was great for us and price just right. We are definitely going back when next in Nadi and you should too Vinaka!

The food we ordered was scrumptious however the main highlight was how well the waithelp staff know their menu and explain in detail..They are accommodating to your likings.The staff were very professional and can relate they must have worked in one of the 5 star resorts or hotels..The drinks were amazing..Very affordable price and child friendly restaurants.
