A classic favourite for many in Thailand is pad thai. Sweet, nutty and full of varying texture, this stir-fried noodle dish is a must-try when you visit the land of smiles.
Of course, some places do up the dish better than others and one place that is dubbed to have the best pad thai in Bangkok is the legendary Thipsamai. The pad thai here is so famous that they have even earned themselves a Bib Gourmand award by the Michelin Guide.
Located on the outskirts of Chinatown, Thipsamai has been around since 1966 and the store is constantly flooded with both tourists and locals. However, like every other hyped up establishment, the real question is, are the insanely long queues really worth it?
Thai food is versatile, a myriad of flavours, and generally a whole lot of fun for chefs. And Rochor Thai’s Chef Owner Joel Ong—who lived a year in Thailand to learn about the Central Thai cuisine—was determined to bring the best of Thai dishes to Singapore.
While most Thai eateries and restaurants in Singapore serve more North-Eastern Thai fare, Rochor Thai specialises in Central Thai Cuisine—which is a lot more balanced, less salty and no less delicious—and it does not use any MSG at all.
Rochor Thai prides itself in its meticulous preparation and the use of fresh ingredients to ensure the authenticity of its food, with flavours found nowhere else in Singapore.
Making his mark in 2012 at Rochor Centre, Rochor Thai’s inception saw overwhelming success and has brought them to where they are today. Today, they are located at Novena Regency, with a more modern and swanky look. They have rocketed to the top of our list and is now among our favourite Thai restaurants.

Nakhon Kitchen has gained a reputation for serving good, authentic Thai food at reasonable prices. It is not unusual to see a queue forming outside the shop during dinner time. So does it live up to the hype?
Whether it’s green chicken curry you are craving, or pad thai, tom yum or green mango salad, Nana Thai at Golden Mile Complex has it all. And the best part? The food is authentic and very affordable. Something tells me that I will be a regular at this humble Thai eatery.
I like to go to the Killiney area for food as it is within town, yet slightly off-the-track. Most of the restaurants there are usually not very crowded; you can easily walk in and get a table without making any reservation.
However, if you are thinking of going to Suanthai Restaurant after reading this review, make sure you call to reserve a table – the $19.9++ Thai Buffet is one of the most popular options in town, and they are always packed during mealtimes.
I was craving for Thai food after blogging about my trip to Bangkok. Since folks kept telling me that Jai Thai serves cheap and good Thai food, I decided to make a trip there for lunch.
Jai Thai Restaurant has three outlets at East Coast Road, Clover Way, and the other at Purvis Street where we went to. The menu is broad in categories: appetisers, curry, tom yum, seafood, beef, chicken, vegetable, rice and noodle; and deep in choices, with plenty of dishes to choose from under each category. With the exception of steamed fish which cost slightly more, most of the items on the menu are priced between $5-8 for small portion.
It is my new favourite Thai Restaurant to go for a quick and inexpensive meal.
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.
Sunshine Plaza is a nice place to go if you are looking for cheap and good food near Orchard. From Japanese Food to Dim Sum, Wanton Mee and Thai Food, there are so many options to choose from.
Thai Gold Food (formerly known as Sbey Sbey Thai Food) at Sunshine Plaza, is one of those places that serve affordable Thai Food. We were there for lunch last week, and it was a tough decision between Thai Gold Food and Aroy-Dee Thai Restaurant. We eventually ate at Thai Gold Food, but I went back to Aroy-Dee two days later (that’s another story for next week).
