Shared a mixed entree for two for S$35 which was enough for us with 3 fried items each and a green mango salad and rice. Lovely decor and tables well spaced. Included a traditional dancer.

What a beautiful location, inside it has a colonial thai atmosphere, and luckily not a freezing AC climate but the place nicely being cooled by the ceiling fans. A nice terrace, romantically lit by candles. As starters we has chicken and beef skewers, and the manga and the papaya salads. Skewers were ok but not daunting, the salads were very... More

Friendly, nice staff, good food, amazing ambience with Thai dancing. Pricy but worth it! Portions big enough to feed you, would recommend to anyone! Family friendly too... One of my most recommended places in Singapore to eat!

I have been a few times before but I was never impressed. However this time it was much better. Thai staff and great service, good food and fantastic ambiance. Pricey but we will come back.

I recently visited Jim Thompson only because the restaurant is beautifully decorated and we were taking family out to dinner. We have been twice before and our general impression has always been lovely ambience but average food. We were given a corner table near the wine chiller and were frequently disturbed as the staff came in to get wine. Our... More

We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary at Jim Thompson on Dempsey Hill. There was ample parking space, and a short walk to the entrance. The staff greeted us in traditional Thai costumes, with a polite hand gesture. The beautiful decor with high ceiling was also quite nice. Nevertheless, those were the only plus points for the restaurant. Although we... More

The meal we had at Jim Thomson was amazing. It was more sophisticated Thai food. I enjoyed every dish, several were old favourites but done with a twist. The service was excellent and attentive without being intrusive. The building was charming, an old barrack It was also a treat to be eating with natural ventilation without being blasted by air...
