Do you love Thai food? If you do, there is a new Thai restaurant, Haha Thai located on the fifth floor of Takashimaya. Haha Thai is not new to the F&B industry as they used to be operating Hahaha Seafood restaurant in Lavender before relocating to their new premises.
Seafood Tanghoon Salad 4.2/5
Our dinner at Haha Thai began with a fiery start with the Seafood Tanghoon Salad ($14.80). All the characters of Thai flavours are showcased in the dish accompanied with fresh seafood.
Pork Knuckle Tom Yum Soup 3.5/5
Usually when we visit Thai restaurant, we probably order seafood/prawn tom yum soup but Pork Knuckle Tom Yum Soup ($18.80) is the first for me. Taste wise the clear soup is no different from other tom yum soup except the main ingredients. Hence it is up to individual's preference.
Himalayan Snow Baked Seabass 4/5
The Himalayan Snow Baked Seabass ($49.80) is probably the most expensive item on the menu but it is worth every penny. After peeling off the skin, underneath it, is the delicious flesh which is soft and moist.
Sambal Kang Kong 4/5
The Sambal Kang Kong ($8.80) tossed in sambal chilli is cooked to a nice crunch. I find the vegetable not spicy enough but I am sure you can ask to kitchen to give it some more kick.
Buttercorn Tiger Prawns 4/5
For seafood lover, the Buttercorn Tiger Prawns ($18.80) with its plump and bouncy flesh is a luxurious enjoyment to the dinner.
Pineapple Fried Rice 3/5
For a more substantial dish, the Pineapple Fried Rice ($10.80) topped with pork floss, fried shallot, nuts and raisin will be a good choice to complete the meal.
Red Velvet Lava Cake with Ice Cream 3/5
Actually I am a bit confused to find Red Velvet Lava Cake with Ice Cream ($10.80) served in a Thai restaurant. This is probably to attract the younger crowd with the latest cafe hopping craze. The lava cake itself is quite moist and my dining partner seems to enjoy it more than me.
Rainbow Gems with Ice Cream 3/5
Red Ruby is commonly served in Thai restaurant but have you heard of Rainbow Gems with Ice Cream ($8.80). Instead of the usual chestnut coated with tapioca flour, Haha Thai gives it a little playful twist with the additional of yellow and green chestnut. The chestnut was crunchy and not floury. However the dessert was lacking the rich coconut milk and sweetness.
In conjunction with the golden jubilee, Haha Thai is also offering 2 set menu at $50++ per pax. The set menu comes with a total of 8 dishes, plus coffee/tea and a complimentary glass of house wine per pax. This is available only from Sunday to Thursday.
