Half Thai, half Japanese, Kaiju offers interesting dishes that takes cues from both popular cuisines. Take this seafood tom yum ramen for example, a dish that took us by surprise with its combination of Thai spices and Japanese culinary style. If ramen isn't to your liking, the restaurant offers other seafood goodies, like a spicy-sour Thai flavoured seafood hotpot.
