There are only two kinds of Thai restaurants in my opinion--the ones that serve drunken noodles (sometimes called crazy noodles) and the ones that don't. Thai Singha has the best version I've. After being evicted from their former location by the U of Pa, they have returned a block away. I skipped eating Thai food for a year and was... More

Ordered delivery to CHOP. Arrived much sooner than predicted by order taker. Coconut milk soup, cashew chicken & shrimp (Spicy), pad Thai -- all very tasty. Sweet Mango Rice is ridiculously priced at $5.95 for a dessert -- just a lump of rice and half a mango sliced -- but wife said it was super fresh. About 5 adult servings... More

The Thai Singha House on 20th and Chestnut (across from Capo Giro) serves authentic Thai food quickly and cheaply. It's definitely a take-out place, though they have a few seats; get your delicious $6 pad thai or red curry and take it to the park. The kitchen is spotless and the service is friendly. Five stars; I eat here regularly.

Have been to both. I liked the food and the atmosphere here much better. Where the "other place" is more crowded and busier, this is a "white tablecloth" restaurant, well spaced tables and suitable for a conversation. Maybe I'm getting old, but that's the environment I prefer. The food was REALLY good. Lots of veggie dishes, and they are willing... More

This is not the best Thai restaurant in Philadelphia but I considered it is the best in the University city area. Their dishes are better and more authentic than Pattaya which is a Thai cuisine next door. The price is a little bit lower too. I have been here nearly every month. My favorite dish is Yen-ta-4. This is a... More

Good Thai food. Uneven service. Sometimes you wait for an hour before you get your entree, and other times the service is perfect. A good place for Penn and Drexel students to take their parents when they come to Philly to visit.
