Jim Thompson

An offshoot of the Thai silk company founded by legendary American businessman Jim Thompson, known as much for his silk as his mysterious disappearance in Cameron Highlands, Jim Thompson Thai restaurants are famous for their elegant, exotic décor; and honest-to-goodness delicious Thai food.

NamNam Noodle Bar

You’re not going to get the most amazing pho ever, but it’s a good, affordable option for a fuss-free meal, especially since they offer value-for-money sets (lunch is $9.90).

Monday-Friday 10am-3pm (last order 3pm)

Othello’s Cafe-Bar

This restaurant serves hearty European mains like braised lamb shank ($22) and fish and chips ($17). There’s also an affordable selection of beers ($11/pint), plus a decent mix of wines (from $45/bottle).

Monday-Friday 11:30am-3pm (last order 3pm)

Salt tapas & bar

Salt tapas is the second offering from Australian chef and restaurateur Luke Mangan, and he hasn’t detracted from his formula of choosing a prime location—this time on the ground floor of Raffles City Shopping Centre facing Raffles Hotel. A decent people watching spot.

Come for their delicious teishoku (lunch set) accompanied by a piping hot bowl of miso soup and umami Koshihikari rice from Nagano.
