I was here with friends on Valentine's Day. The décor is simply out of this world and spectacular. The large settees with big pillows were extremely comfortable. So many things to look at you almost forget that you came to eat. On the subject of eating I was very impressed with the selection. All of the ingredients were fresh and... More

What a lovely restaurant. Fresh spicy Thai food, full of goodness and colour in a romantic lovely building - a real treat. The Thai beef salad is fiery and delicious. The Thai omelette is superb, the stir fried chicken and curries sensational. All the better due to a light yet full Pinot noir sipped alongside the tasty food... A great... More

Well, would you go at a restaurant just for its nice setting? The aesthetics and global ambiance are great. The food is acceptable, but not at all at the level of this pricey restaurant and of its overpriced rates. We expected much better; especially the starters are insignifiant. It is not disastrous, but one needs to compensate for other comments... More

Jim Thompson is a nice Thai restaurant, with very well executed Thai food and a great location. Whether you eat outside - calm and lovely terrasse - or inside - very good decoration and lots of space - the atmosphere is very nice. Food wise, this is definitely some good Thai food (not so easy to find in Singapore). Starters... More

Our customer asked what we were going to do this particular evening as they could not join us for dinner. We obviously said we were going to eat and they said that if we liked Thai food we should try Jim Thomson – So we did! It’s on the edge of town in the ‘hills’ at the far end of... More

I celebrated my 50 birthday at Jim Thomson with friends living in Singapore, and it was a perfect night. Food was great, really great actually. Some of the best Thai we ever had, and we'we had some. Service was pleasantly good, but the dancers were kind of weird. Some say the best Thai Food in Sing right now. I wouldn't... More

went at night to dine at the terrasse of this thai restaurant and it was a very good experience. We had delicious cocktails with lemon grass and lime basil as aperitif and then the food came with good flavors and good spice level. The service was fast and the ambiance was zen close to the basin. We even had dancing... More

My 3rd visit to Jim Thompson. All 3 visits were very good and we enjoyed our night out. The menu is very good and the dishes that we selected were tasty, carefully prepared and served. It is quite authentic, classy and probably the best Thai restaurant in Singapore. It is expensive but the experience and ambiance are excellent (try eating... More
