Owner and head chef Alex Kaihea opened Moana Restaurant and Bar in May 2019. Together with his partner and co-owner Danielle Niuhulu, the renowned Tongan-born celebrity chef relocated to Australia from New Zealand. In New Zealand, Alex previously owned several successful restaurants in Auckland and appeared on New Zealand TV shows showcasing his admirable cooking skills and Pacific cuisine.

Alex has been passionate about cooking for as long as he can remember. Seafood is what he does best, and his cuisine combines our freshest local seafood with Pacific Rim flavours, offered at surprisingly affordable prices.

Pacific Rim cooking encompasses styles from countries bordering the Pacific Ocean – combining Pacific Island foods with Asian cooking techniques and various cultural and culinary influences.
