Nestled in the lush greenery of Dempsey Hill and opposite the quaint St George's Church, is this charming restaurant. Tastefully furnished with a spacious al fresco area, this set the stage for a memorable meal. Olive fried rice with cashew nuts, lime and sliced chillies (very very hot so avoid these if you can't take flaming spicy food!) was delicious.... More

Been here a few times, but 1st time for a Sunday lunch They have a good selection of cocktails. Good and strong, but very expensive at $25 each Choice between regular a la carte and $68 buffet with drinks ($98 with alcohol). I chose the former, with the $25 cocktail mentioned above Ordered the usual Thai staples - fried chicken... More

We had a very nice diner in this place. Good choice of meals, the green and red curries are very tasty and the service was efficient and smily ( land of smile ..). We had diner inside, although it is a bit noisy, the ambiance was great and the place is beautiful. A little expensive but it worth it .

We LOVED this restaurant. The food was amazing. We had a hard time deciding what to order because everything on the menu looked delicious. We were not disappointed. The servers were very attentive and we loved the atmosphere (used to be an army baracks). Restrooms are located outside of the restaurant. We ordered a sampler platter as a starter -... More

We went there for a business dinner and it was amazing. We were sitting outside, it was nice and quiet. The food was delicious, the wine selection was quite good. The desert menu is rather small. And if you pay with a credit card you have to come inside to insert your pin code, that's odd. But overall the restaurant... More

We travelled to Singapore for our Honeymoon and were recommended by my cousin to visit this restaurant. We were not disappointed. The service was great and the staff fantastic. We chatted to a few and they were great people. The food was excellent. If we lived in Singapore we would be regulars.

One of the best Thai restaurants I have eaten in; we had a Sunday buffet lunch there and the selection of dishes was superb. Especially loved the variety of the Thai salads that just popped with fresh flavours and the curries were to due for. Not inexpensive but definitely worth it; the ambiance alone is worth a visit but the... More

Jim Thompson at Dempsey is excellent for fine dining with its lovely ambience, graceful dancers and delicious Thai cuisine if you don't mind the terribly expensive prices and awfully small portions. The details are immaculate, the menu offers an extensive choice for both vegetarians and non vegetarians. The cocktails' quality are excellent. Parking is convenient. However, the service staff should... More
