Where spice is definitely a way of life

Good Thai eats are easier to come by these days, but that doesn’t mean that all the Thai restaurants in Singapore offer promising and authentic Southeast Asian cuisine. Here, we list the top eateries around, where you’ll be able to enjoy flavourful and fragrant Thai delights. Somehow, we find that the best spots are always located in grimey areas, so just bear that in mind when you visit these places.

Baan Ying Singapore

Using only the freshest of ingredients, Thailand-hailing Baan Ying arrived in sunny Singapore mid-2018, and has been delighting us ever since. This upscale family restaurant serves a hearty range of Thai cuisine classics, like the Khao Pad Nam Prik Noom (homemade green chilli fried rice) and Baan Ying Omelette Rice, a velvety-smooth fried egg omelette which you can personalise.

BeerThai House Restaurant - Golden Mile Complex

At Singapore’s very own Little Thailand, Thai food options are aplenty. But what makes BeerThai a standout among all the other dining locales at Golden Mile Complex (and Towers) is that it’s very accommodating to its patrons. That means they’re always ready to help tweak dishes to suit your taste buds, or even your diet if you’re a vegetarian or vegan. Plus, you can find some of the best Pad Thais here.

Nakhon Kitchen

What’s not to love about this Thai eatery chain? Other than serving comforting Thai eats, they've got a total of seven different outlets located mostly within the heartlands of Singapore, which makes them very accessible. Nakhon even introduces additional menus every now and then, so you can try new dishes when they do. Right now, we’re loving the basil pork eggplant that’s available at Holland V’s outlet.

Nangfa Thai Kitchen

Well-known as Nakhon Kitchen’s direct rival, Nangfa Thai Kitchen is located at Bedok, just a short distance from the bustling interchange. Here, choose the fragrant pandan chicken, deep-fried stuffed wings and refreshing mango salad.

Tawandang Microbrewery

At Tawandang Microbrewery, you can put out the fire in your mouth from all that spicy food with German lager instead of Thai iced milk tea—and that’s a major plus in our books. Get their Thai fish cake and signature tom yum seafood soup that’s served piping hot in a steamboat pot, for you to ladle out all that spicy, comforting goodness yourself.

Thai Tantric Restaurant

This restaurant is quite worth the shady (and unsafe) travels to Orchard Towers. Find life-changing pineapple fried rice, Thai-style shrimp dumplings and some deep-fried chicken skin, sure to satisfy your cravings for hearty Thai food. All dishes come at an indecently reasonable price.

Noodle Cafe - Thai Boat Noodle

Since the closure of Gu Thai Noodle Cafe at PoMo, this cafe has become our go-to spot for Thai boat noodles. Yes, the soupy noodles do go as low as $1.90 per bowl, although you should order the larger portions, as you'll definitely want to slurp down more of the noodles once you’ve had a taste of it.
