Aaharn: A modern Thai restaurant set in colonial grandeur
- The menus are stuffed with dishes like stir-fried tiger prawns with lotus stalk and garlic, and chicken and green banana curry from Chanthaburi
Set in the two-storey Armoury Building at Tai Kwun, this eatery has a bar on the ground floor while fine Thai cuisine, for which David Thompson is famous, is served upstairs. The colonial-style, softly lit dining room has high ceilings with colourful modern artwork illuminated by spotlights. There is plenty of natural wood, from the floorboards and beams to the tables. A balcony overlooks the parade ground.
For dinner, there are à la carte or set menus with dishes like stir-fried tiger prawns with lotus stalk and garlic, and chicken and green banana curry from Chanthaburi. Vegan items include curry of pumpkin, cauliflower, cherry tomato and cucumber relish. We recommend wine pairing.
