Ordered a green chicken curry, which cost $21 by the time the delivery charge was included, and it couldn't feed a child. It arrived as half a bowl of curry with no rice. Absurd to charge $21 for a meal that doesn't include rice?

The owner of the restaurant is so welcoming, it's located in the centre of Chinatown. Most recommended food and drink is the mango sticky rice and butterfly pee tea.

The owners of this place are very welcoming - whenever I go, the husband and wife are working hard! They know they have a captive tourist audience so I do think their menu items are a bit over priced, and the quality had been consistent...More

I came here because of the review and I think they are inflated. The food was good yes, but expensive. The service was not good and basic things like no serviettes was strange. Lovely flavours but not a particularly great experience. Maybe it was due...More

Hello Milly! Thank you for your kind review. We've been around for about a decade or so, so the decor is a little outdated ;) Hey no excuses, but! We are giving the restaurant a face-lift later this year, concurrently with the land transport authority's...More

I’ve been coming to Singapore for years, Sawasdee is a place I always visit for the friendly welcome, good Thai food and the coldest Singha beer. Great place to people watch and enjoy some steamed fish (my favorite), Chicken Satay or pineapple fried rice.

I suspect this restaurant gets a great many highly rated reviews due to its location in the middle of Chinatown ..and from visitors. Much better Thai food is available in the city at very reasonable cost. Here the food was dry and uninteresting. Probably better...More

Ate here twice on our trip to Singapore. Good service, very flavorful food. Had spicy minced chicken and spicy noodles. Medium spice is just fine even if you like spicy food. Very spicy would be killer.

I was walking down Pagoda Street when I noticed this restaurant. It is 34 Pagoda Street and the site of an old Opium den. There was a large amount of seating outside and some further air conditioned seating inside. I opted to sit outside and...More

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
