We fell upon this en route from Raffles to our hotel where 2 mains and 3 beers cost half what we had paid for 2 Singapore Slings!! Delicious pad thai and green curry, service good, basic inside but very tasty, authentic Thai food. Really enjoyed.

We had very good dishes and I could order a vegan meal - the staff was very helpul on that question. The ginger drink and the coconut were good. The food is typical Thai so be aware of hot spices! We could sit outside, the street is very nice with old sigaporan houses. The toilet is more or less in... More

We ate here 4 times while in Singapore and is was by far the best value place we had been to. Great tasty food at a good price with well priced Thai beers. I notice a lot of people going on about bad service but I thought their service was fine. Thoroughly recommend and will visit again when in Singapore.

We went for dinner at 9pm , while we were eating the waitress stuffed the bill on the table and said impatiently - pay now that was at about 9.20 and the website said they closed at 10pm. They didn't come by to ask if there was any last orders so we said - but we wanted another bowl of... More

We'd been sitting having a drink in Purvis Street, people watching (as you do), and noticed lots of people coming and going from this busy little restaurant. Our hotel had recommended it if we liked Thai food, which we do, so finished our drinks and over we went. It was good, not great, plentiful and cheap.

This place is a small Thai restaurant I've heard about when arriving in Singapore. Excellent food ! The spicy dishes are quite on fire but you can always ask for a little smoother. Green curry is amazing. Now the delicacy of these dishes is wonderful. Watch out though : they close at 9 pm and we weren't told when arriving... More

Having been here a number of times for lunch over the past year or so I decided it was time to try it for dinner. The Pad Thai was a bit oily, the green chicken curry was decent as was the mango salad. The grilled squid was a little bland. I liked the milk tea also. Probably will be back... More

As a local, I came here after a local food blogger reviewed the place as one of the more affordable Thai restaurants in SG. Firstly they didn't allow my Friend to sit on a chair while she was waiting for 3 of us to arrive (Please note that there were 8 empty tables). Secondly we had to remind them for... More

A group of 5 of us came for dinner. The food was great value and delicious and we found the service absolutely fine - this is a good no nonsense place to eat. The seafood tom yum was delicious - sharp, spicy and very 'clean'. The basil chicken was equally delicious and in fact all the dishes we ordered were... More

A disgrace to Thailand!!! Should be shut down for horrible rude staff. Scoffing and rude blinking at patrons should not be tolerated. Shut this place down. Singapore doesn't deserve a horrid place like this
