Fast service, affordable price, nice noodle dishes but chewy chicken. Ok if you in the neighborhoods but is not worth a transfer just for it.

Excellent little restaurant - a real gem - situated close to the river and Chinatown. Excellent tucker, and one can sit outside and watch the world go by, while enjoying a meal and a beer. We always visit this restaurant when in Singapore. The menu...More

Pavement dining for good quality Thai food, home cooking style. Feels like it is a family run place. Less bustling than nearby boat quay, better quality food, and considerably cheaper (very good value in fact). Recommended.

I've probably been here 10 times, and never been disappointed. It's very casual, with plastic chairs, tables etc. but is open late and the food is consistently good and very affordable. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area and have a craving...More

I am not into ambiance when searching for good food. This place serves awesome Thai food. I have returned multiple times and probably have ordered half (or maybe more) from their menu. BOTTOM LINE: If you like Thai food and don't care much about where...More
