A-Roy Thai Restaurant

This unpretentious, no-frills eatery has a slightly random, haphazard and distinctly ’80s (it harks back to 1988) feel about it, but that’s part of its charm; and who cares when the food’s good? You’ll get authentic homecooked Thai fare here, none of that fusion stuff. Don’t underestimate the fieriness of their tom yum noodle soup—it’s potent. The lemongrass salad, and steamed fish with lime and garlic are good too.

If you’re craving Thai curries, papaya salad or just stir-fried pad ka prao (basil leaves and minced pork), this list of what is arguably the best Thai restaurants in Singapore got you covered.
