Lautoka businessman, Hafiz Rahiman, has added Taveuni to his bucket list.

The 57-year-old owns the South Seas Club’s Aamira Restaurant in Lautoka.

He had visited a few places in Fiji including the Yasawa and Mamanuca Island groups through his son, Aarish Rahiman, who organised a day tour for him in 2019.

 

“ I am a Fiji born, but have not explored Fiji.”

“It is a must that I visit Taveuni,” he said.

“I want to see the beautiful tagimoucia.”

“Also the dalo, I heard that the dalo are humongous there.”

Mr Rahiman hails from Vuda Point.

 

What Is The Success Of Your Restaurant?
I owe the growing popularity of the restaurant to the ‘malayalam’ spices which was specially put together by my mother, late Mariam Bibi who died on January 9 because of COVID.

Malayalam spices are common in the State of Kerala, South of India.

Only my late mother mixes these spices well and that is a special ingredient that makes our food standout amongst the eateries in Lautoka.

 

How Long Have You Been In This Restaurant Business?
21 years.

 

What curry variety do you sell?
Kai (water mussels), chicken, duck, fresh fish, lamb, vegetable served with dhal, roti, rice chutneys and fresh chilies.
