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.

had a bad experience in rama thai restaurant. paid over $120 for a set meal for 2 pax with 6 course but food quality and quantity did not equate to that price. i think it is worth than zhi char stall. 6 course started with a small plate of mango salad, a small pot of shark fin soup, 2 small prawn cake, one small plate of fried veg, a plate of rubbish fried rice and 2 small brown of red ruby ice ball desert. all the servings are small and do not taste fantastic or equate to restaurant quality. felt the ingredients are cheap stuff and do not worth to pay $120 for that. i felt lucky that i did not order any expensive stuff. and surely would not go back again and advise any one to avoid. years ago, i thought rama thai was a good as i did enjoy a good bowl of shark fin soup. not anymore and i suspect the rest was bought over by a Chee na bis and run by them.
