Thai Style Sharkfin & Seafood

 

Rama Thai Sharkfin Restaurant is a well known restaurant in Singapore through their constant advertisement in newspaper. Since it is a special occasion, we took the opportunity to check this pace out.

For Group of 10, we ordered the $538 Set menu, which consist of:

- Braised Whole Sharkfin with Crabmeat (Individual Claypot)

- Baked whole crab with Vermicelli

- Deep fried Red Garoupa in special Thai Sauce

- Rama Thai Signature Prawn Cakes

- Crispy Seafood Rolls

- Fried Toh Miaw with garlic

- Pineapple Fried Rice

- Desserts

We order extra Lobster Salad for the occasion. $108. All price excluding GST and service charge.

From the name itself you will know that this restaurant serve Thai style food with Chinese Teow Chew influence. The chefs are from Thailand, as we heard them speak when we came in from the back of the restaurant.

The Sharkfin comes in a clear soup with crab meat. You must add the bean sprout, while the soup is hot. This is the same type of Sharkfin soup that you will have when you are in Thailand, different from the one served during the wedding banquet here. Each person served with an individual claypot, so SHIOK!!

The baked whole crab with Vermicelli is quite good. Another typical Thai dish. The vermicelli are infused with the essence of the crab. The good thing is that the vermicelli is coated with the crab gravy and sauce instead of oily pork fat like other typical Thai restaurant.

The plus point of this restaurant is also their deep frying skill. The deep fried the fish until crispy. Meanwhile their prawn cake and seafood roll are fried just nice, together with their dipping sauce you can really enjoy the crispy coating and the juicy ingredients inside. One thing I have to admit, this place really use fresh ingredients. No short cut, because when it comes to seafood you can taste the different if it is not fresh. The same apply to their Lobster salad.

However, we find that our set menu are not well balanced. Although their fried stuff is nice, three deep fried dishes in a menu is one to many. Maybe they should do steam seafood rolls instead of frying them.

Atmosphere, typical Chinese restaurant. Not much decoration, but its clean and cozy. Service is good and attentive. Since it is a weekday, they were only 3 to 4 tables occupied and they have enough waiter and manager to take care of us.

Overall, this place really bring the Thai style of seafood to Singapore food scene. It offer different variety but it does not come cheap. Good for special occasions and to impress someone important.

Just had a terrible experience here. I was deciding between ordering the $25 sharks fin promo (usual $50) or the premium $65 sharks fin, and the manager kept pushing for me to order the $65 one. She said that it was 160gm of sharksfin as compared to the other which was only 80gm. So, I decided to order both versions, however, when it came, the $65 premium version had hardly a few more strands than the $25 promotion one so I made an inquiry as to why this was the case. They told me oh you cannot look at the quantity, the fins are thicker, and I compared it for them on the spot saying that it is not thicker and yet they refused to budge.

I did not wish to further waste my breath. I do not mind paying for good quality but why should I be recommended something that is $40 more than something else which quantity and quality are almost the same? This is a very unprincipled shop. Do not go at all costs. Terrible.

Food is so so. Food not worth the price. And the service sucks. Made my family wait for 30mins in between serving of dishes. By the time the last 2 dishes came, rice finish and waited until full already. The barley n drink is totally tasteless

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
