Tropicana, the restaurant club located inside the Arbat Cultural Entertainment Center, has recently reopened after reconstruction. Designed with a tropical exotica feel, it is probably the only establishment in town that prepares Polynesian dishes, among others. These rare treats include Polynesian satay of prawns and chicken on lemongrass skewers, and silver pomfret baked on coconut coals with lime sauce. As Tropicana is housed alongside a casino, the restaurant not surprisingly provides live music and, of course, a floorshow.
