Traditional Fijian Cuisine

Fijian cuisine is a celebration of fresh, locally sourced ingredients and a harmonious fusion of flavours influenced by the island's cultural diversity.

Rooted in traditional cooking methods and indigenous ingredients, Fijian dishes are characterised by their rich flavours and vibrant spices, such as turmeric, coconut, and ginger. Rice, seafood, tropical fruits and root vegetables are staples of Fijian cuisine, reflecting the island's abundant natural resources. Meals often feature succulent meats and fresh fish, cooked in fragrant coconut milk or seasoned with traditional Fijian spices.
