Issaya is an old Thai lexicon for rainy season. It is also a name of one of Asia's top 50 best restaurants, that has just recently come to join the culinary city of Hong Kong. Sister to their branch in Bangkok, that is brimming with tropical gardens and a dynamic restaurant, Issaya Hong Kong features a similar interior design of heritage paint and antique wallpaper, an open kitchen and bar, a spacious dining room and a lush outdoor terrace.

Offering two tasting menus, an a la carte menu, cocktails and a nice selection of desserts, Chef Kittichai has transported all his original Thai flavours, with fresh ingredients sourced from Thailand, Australia and New Zealand, including aromatic herbs and organic fruits.

The first dish is showcased on a rectangular barbecue box wrapped with banana leaf. The baby back ribs are wonderfully spiced in a homemade hot sauce, with a slightly sweet note and delicious fall-off-the bone meat.

The tuna tartare is another beautiful dish that comes in servings of four. Designed in a crispy mini wonton cup filled with chopped fresh tuna, it is dressed with a delightfully sweet, palm sugar fish sauce, complemented with some crunchy peanuts and a spicy chilli from top to bottom.

After some contemporary twists, the chef continues to surprise us with three large scallops served in a lime-vinegar sauce, with a deep-fried fish skin and pork belly relish. The scallop is incredibly fresh and plump and truly excellent.

Our meal is marked by the star of the show - Issaya's banana eclair. This choux pastry presents a modern twist on an old-school street food, filled with scrumptious grilled banana custard, sesame toppings, along with refreshing coconut ice cream.
