Champagne, thai food, and a view of Hong Kong… Tick!

With stunning views of our city, a colourful ambiance, and exceptional Thai dishes, Issaya Siamese Club Hong Kong, is the sister restaurant of the renowned resto, Issaya Siamese Club, in Bangkok. 

First Impressions

It was clear that a great deal of time and effort had been spent to make sure each and every hungry diner feel completely comfortable. Old drawings of Thailand adorn the walls and the beautiful sofas were so regal, they wouldn’t have felt out of place on the set of The King and I. The next thing that really drew our attention was the steaming vat of liquid nitrogen in the middle of the room – getting us prepped for their dessert (but more on that, later…)!

The View

With a hazy reflection of the Happy Valley race track bouncing intriguingly off a nearby glass building, the view from the restaurant is stunning. Wanting a better look, we headed to the balcony to see a quite staggering view of the hustle and bustle of Causeway Bay. We loved that we still felt so far removed from the whirlwind of Hong Kong… Issaya Siamese Club definitely knows how to create that homely-romantic-getaway vibe. Plus, with the colourful ambiance, and cute little lights dangling from the ceiling, this is without a doubt a recommended date spot, mama!

The Buffet

And let’s face it, it doesn’t get much better than a buffet: the staple Hong Kong brunch. And this array of food stretched from one side of the room to the other. Everything looked amazing, from the fresh oysters to the salad bar – which is prepared especially to suit your tastes. It was hard not to overindulge, so we made an executive decision and stopped trying not to. “A glass of champagne?”, they offered politely, and before I knew it, a chilled glass of Mumm, was being poured into a flute – the ideal accompaniment to rich, spicy food.

Though it’s hard to single any one dish out, the Laab Kai (Northeastern Thai minced chicken salad with cooling lettuce) and Moo Ping (hot barbecued pork skewers) were particularly faves. There was nothing we didn’t try. And then go back and try again. It was all so marvellously scrumptious!

The Mains

Our post-buffet brains were a bit concerned that we hadn’t left enough room for the main course, but our tastebuds quickly put that thought to rest as soon as the pork hit my mouth. I chose the pork steak with peppercorn, and it was cooked to perfection and exploding with flavour. I wish I could say that I delicately nibbled on an eclectic mix of excellent food… but, in fact, I stuffed my face silly on an eclectic mix of excellent food.

The Dessert

As promised, their Thai-style homemade ice cream with a twist did not disappoint. The ice cream is stirred and set at room temperature, then saturated with the nitrogen until it freezes. It’s set up almost like a magic show, and has kiddos and adults alike starring in equal wonder. And although we were completely stuffed by this point, I regret nothing…
