Misigisaq Restaurant is a Thai restaurant, formerly a Chinese restaurant, located at the harbor in the town of Sisimiut in western Greenland. It is the only such restaurant in the country and it uses Greenlandic ingredients cooked in the Chinese style.[1] The restaurant was formally a Chinese restaurant for a few years before the joint-venture went bankrupt in October 2007. The local entrepreneurs then bought the restaurant and retain the restaurant's name.

The restaurant serves local lamb, caribou, musk ox, local sea foods, and several imported items. The restaurant makes some of its own ingredients including doufu, thick noodles, and spring roll skins but imports soy and other sauces, spices, and teas directly from China.[1] One of the specialities is named "Tired Fisherman's Soup".[1]
