I was delighted when received invitation to have food review at Federal Hotel at newly opened restaurant called " Kontiki", When I recall this hotel, it reminds me of our sweet memory of having our wedding dinner here at Mandarin Oriental and it has been 5 years since my last visit. 
The Federal Hotel has started to refurnished the room and this Kontiki Restaurant is just opened on 19 September 2014 (used to be a function room) with a modern contemporary interior-designed concept offering an extensive buffet spread.I adore the whole environment, comfortable with nice interior and open concept kitchen.The highlights for tonight is their BBQ buffet that only available on Friday and Saturday.I was fascinated with the food especially the BBQ station.
Background of Kontiki Restaurant " Kontiki was the raft used by Norwegian explorer and writer Thor Heyerdahl in his 1947 expedition across the Pacific Ocean from South America to the Polynesian islands. It was named after the Inca sun god, Viracocha, from whom “Kon-Tiki” was said to be an old name. Considered the creator god, he was the father of all other Inca gods and it was he who formed the earth, heavens, sun, moon and all living beings. When he finished his work he was believed to have travelled far and wide teaching humanity and bringing the civilised arts before he headed west across the Pacific, never to be seen again but promising one day to return."
The two giant Tikis at the main entrance deco is unique and bought since 1960's..
Beautiful and romantic seats arrangement for the couples to enjoy a sweet dining moments together. The wall design is to represent the wave as if we are dining in a ship environment.
