Me and my son ate most of our lunches here while we were attending a workshop in Peminpin. Servings are categorized into small, medium and large. The medium serving is quite filling. I liked their sea food fried rice, yummy, with lots of squid, shrimps and fish. My son had their chicken fried rice twice. The shrimp pad Thai not... More

If you like authentic Thai food at most afford price but do not mind the poor service then Jai is the perfect venue. For a family of 4-6, you can enjoy sea bass in tamarind sauce, curry chicken and four or five other traditional Thai dishes for within S$100, drinks and mango stick rice desert included. On the other hand,... More

Having been to several Thai restaurants and Thailand often, it's easily concluded that this has one of the worse Thai food and service ever. We've ordered the clear tom yum soup, mixed platter, green and red curry, pineapple rice, fried broccoli with mushroom and stir fried beef. Tom yum soup, the staple of all Thai food, was spicy from the... More

Jai Thai is conveniently located within short walking distance from either City Hall or Bugis MRT. The food is great and seriously good value. We ordered green curry chicken, mango salad, phad thai and clear tom yum seafood soup. They were all very delicious and authentic, though I personally feel that it was not spicy enough for me (my spicy-ness... More

Basic place with great food at low prices. No credit cards accepted. Unexpectedly long waiting time for the food.

This little restaurant gets quite busy in the evening. Filled with locals. Located on a side street a few blocks from the Raffles hotel. Very inexpensive by Singapore standards. Casual dining, tasty food. Highly recommended. We ate there twice.

Authentic Thai food in good quality :) very spicy if you wish to. I loved the green curry and papaya salad! Exceptional dessert choice (they have red Ruby :) ) Very cuddly friendly staff.

When you need a fix of Thai food, this place remains a good choice. This time I was here with 2 friends and we opted for the set lunch of Pad Thai which came with a simple drink in a plastic cup. Cost for 3 of us was about $25 so it was pretty good value and fairly tasty too.... More

BUSY, is the only way to describe this informal Thai place! The locals flock and the line to be seated moves quickly on the weekend. On a number of visits to Singapore, we have had dinner here more than one night and have not found any item on the menu which was not wonderful. Great pandan chicken and fish cakes... More
