Thai cuisine is perhaps the most popular cuisine for Indians other than Indian food itself. Going by quality of food and service at the above mentioned restaurants, Sip Song is bound to create a buzz within the Indian community in Hong Kong.
The restaurant is inspired by the beach culture of the Southern Thai coast and food of the Bangkok night markets. The menu is based on authentic Thai street food, leaning on Head Chef Nuch Srichantranon’s experience growing up in Bangkok, with a slight twist influenced by his experience cooking in Australia.

Regarding the inspiration behind his cuisine at Sip Song, Chef Nuch says, “Some of my earliest memories are from wandering the night markets with my mother, and being awe struck at the sights, smells, and sounds. Over the years I started to learn in more detail what each vendor was selling and appreciating the care and passion that went into their livelihood. For SIP SONG, my goal is to bring back the focus to dynamic Thai flavours and fresh quality ingredients, whilst incorporating influences from my time cooking in Australia.“
