First Thai Food Purvis Street Restaurant

First Thai Purvis Street

First Thai at Purvis Street has been around for a few years, so it’s not surprising that the Thai eatery is perpetually crowded during meal times.

Tom Yum Soup

After a quick glance at the menu, we ordered a few items to share. The Tom Yum Seafood (S$7), a classic Thai dish, came first. Hot and spicy, it was the perfect dish to start off our Thai feast.

Phad Thai

Following the Tom Yum seafood soup, we had Olive rice (S$8), Fried Prawn Cake (S$3/pc), Basil Leaves Fried with Pork/Chicken (S$8), and Phad Thai (S$8). Even though nothing in particular stood out, we had a pretty satisfying dinner.

Thai olive rice

While First Thai Restaurant has garnered many supporters over the years, we prefer Jai Thai – just down the road at 27 Purvis Street – which has equally good, if not better Thai food at slightly cheaper prices.
