Kha takes its name from galangal - an essential ingredient in thai cuisine, and is also part of a word in a traditional female Thai greeting. It is the second to open in the Epicure group of restaurants conceptualized by young Singaporean businesswoman Yenn Wong and her partners. Opened in March 2008, Kha is a rustic and relaxed contemporary Thai restaurant located in Singapore’s latest gardening and lifestyle hub, HortPark.Specialising in modern interpretations of classic Thai cuisine, the restaurant prides itself in bringing delicious and sophisticated Thai creations to the table.
Kha is located in Singapore’s HortPark, and has an ideal combination of interior and alfresco dining. The interiors of Kha are by Wei Tan of Suite Interior Design – who has created a delightful juxtaposition between modern and rustic, infusing natural finishes and Thai touches with chic glossy surfaces. High gloss dark wood walls are softened with rustic teak flooring and raw cement surfaces, all to exude relaxation and natural elegance. To highlight the interiors, custom made flower pendant lights in a black glossy and mirror finish create a focal point in the restaurant.
Diners at Kha can expect modern Thai culinary delights from a unique new menu designed by our kitchen brigade of five highly experienced and regionally diverse Thai nationals. The team was trained by the acclaimed chef David Hamilton and two of them honed their skills with him at the Dream Hotel restaurant in Bangkok. Together they discuss the foods of their childhood, the role food plays within their families and regional techniques, and from that they create the signature dishes of Kha - modern Thai interpretations that are respectful of the cuisine’s history and authentic cultural nuances.
