Namo Avant Thai – TST, Kowloon, Hong Kong

Namo Avant Thai, is a beautiful Thai restaurant in Tsim Sha Tsui. It is located right by the water and you can enjoy the awesome Hong Kong  skyline while you eat. I would like to think that the ‘avant’ in their name stands for Avant Garde, as this eatery has a nice mix of European, Indian and obviously Thai flavors.

They have many dishes with ‘paneer’, a separate vegetarian menu (yay!), and they even offer Jain options! The restaurant has slick modern wooden furniture and a nice casual dining vibe. It is located in the Empire Center mall and welcomes happy shoppers as well.
