Couldn’t make it out of town to celebrate the Thai New Year, but still want to get involved in all the colour, water, food & fun?
Read on for what we’re doing for Songkran weekend in Hong Kong.
To welcome the transition into Spring, on both Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th of April, the team at Mak Mak, are taking their normal free flow format, and spicing things up a notch via way of colour, frivolity and music.
And while the water fights are best left outside the hidden Landmark restaurant, inside, guests can enjoy unlimited amounts of classic Thai starters, soups, salads, curries, stir fries, and of course, sweets for HK$500. Not to mention a free-flow of Veuve Clicquot, Aperol Spritz and more.
Did we mention the DIY face colour kits? The fun starts at 12 noon and ends at 3pm.
Those busy for brunch but still after something special for Songkran can dig into specials run all weekend. Including ‘Pal Fu’ – hand chopped fish, crumbed before cooked and served alongside cashew nuts, coriander, shallots and green mango (HKD$198 + 10%).

Fiends for the Issan style smack down Chachawan has come to be loved for, can also head to the Sheung Wan stalwart for a slew of Songkran specials across the weekend. Or perhaps just a fix of everyone’s favourite Thai dessert – Khao Niaw Mamuang – mango with sticky rice.
Our pick of the specials? ‘Dtum Tad’ a papaya salad, tossed with the crisp of dried pork skin, three types of Thai sausage, rice noodles, boiled eggs and cucumber (HKD$158).
Did we mention there’s Happy Hour running from open to close, all Songkran weekend too?
