In the 6 years we have been in Singapore, we have found ourselves at Jim Thomson every month, if not more! This is our favourite Thai place in Singapore. Not just because the ambience and the Thai dances are scintillating, but because this is one restaurant that scores a 10/10 in every front. So let me begin: If you visit... More

Loved Jim Thomson in Dempsey hill, weather was good so had the luxury of sitting al fresco... Beautiful gardens and interior, relaxed yet luxurious and extremely attentive staff. Don't be fooled by the menu this restaurant has an abundance of veggie options... just ask and a vegetarian only menu is produced. Everything was scrumptious... and the house speciality cocktail te... More

Nice restaurant, we sat outside in the evening at the spacious area, surrounded by greenery, with thai dancers on show. The service was good, the waitress extremely helpful as we ordered for a large group. The food presentation was good, though the taste was nothing spectacular considering the higher than average cost: the satay seemed undercooked and bland, the red... More

I was there for a business dinner and enjoyed the experience. The food is good, the service was great, but the atmosphere is what makes it. When you arrive you are greeted by traditional Thai dancers and a lush landscape. It was a unique experience and I recommend it.

The setting is truly lovely; the service is prompt and accommodating. That being said, the food was not nearly as good as I remember it from my prior visits (at least two years ago). It is also on the expensive side so that my unhappiness about the food even more than it might otherwise have been.

We asked our hotel concierge for a casual Thai restaurant recommendation and he sent us to Jim Thompson. Perhaps "casual" was lost in translation as this was a very expensive and upscale restaurant (2 ppl, no drinks and dinner was over $200). Cost aside, when you're in an Asian restaurant in Asia...and there are only white people in the restaurant,... More

Had a great Champagne birthday buffet lunch at the Jim Thompson on Dempsey Hill. Always a pleasure to dine here, the colonial building and great decor provides a wonderful setting for a great occasion. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent & the buffet with free flow champagne was great value.
