Thai Tantric at Orchard Towers is our all-time favourite Thai eatery in Singapore. There, we’ve said it. Thai Tantric is not the most fancy restaurant, nor is it a place where we would recommend for a date night.
But what makes this no-frills eatery a place you can return to regularly is its authentic Thai food at super reasonable prices. And that is precisely why it remains popular all these years.
It has been four years since we wrote our guide on restaurants in Orchard Road and though we update them from time to time, we thought it is high time to re-curate and to introduce a new guide, featuring even more dining places in Singapore’s most famous shopping street.
Options are aplenty and no doubt we are all spoilt for choice, but are they really worth their queues/ price tags/ waiting time? We have friends from overseas who visit Singapore and have limited time on our sunny island, and then we have our locals who do not want to waste their calories unnecessarily.
The next time you head to Orchard Road, you need not face the risk of stepping in to a random diner and not knowing what to expect.

Thai food fans, HANDS UP! Let us all celebrate our love for spicy and fiery flavours. Thai Food is always and forever food for the soul, and a good Thai meal does wonders. Expect nothing short of a spectrum of contrasting flavours that tickle our taste buds – sweet, sour, spicy, very spicy, and very very spicy.
Heck, even the spiciness levels have different kicks to it, and we are definitely loving it! Bring us all the Phad Thai, Tom Yum and Green Curry please.
Thai food need not be expensive. In fact, they are supposed to be economical, and the idea is to order a whole table of dishes for communal enjoyment.
