About Jim Thompson

As one of the most famous American businessman operating in Asia, the man that almost single-handedly saved Thailand’s silk industry, and as one of Southeast Asia’s most infamous disappearing acts, Jim Thompson’s legend is secure. His legacy, however, endures not only in Thai silk and artefacts or his vanishing, but in a series of restaurants and bars that have gained worldwide attention. Here at Jim Thompson: A Thai Restaurant, the influence of the Jim Thompson style is apparent, from the opulent premises in a Dempsey Hill heritage building along Minden Road, to the impeccably prepared and presented Thai dishes that will please even the most attuned palates. Often praised as at least one of the finest restaurants on Earth, perhaps the best restaurant in Singapore, Jim Thompson: A Thai Restaurant demands a reservation.

More about Jim Thompson, Singapore

The first aspect that strikes visitors to Jim Thompson: A Thai Restaurant’s Dempsey Hill premises is the evident attention that has been lavished on every detail of the Minden Road mansion that serves as the restaurant’s home. Many millions have been invested in the decor of this one-of-a-king Singapore venue, with the style obviously deriving from Jim Thompson’s own considered aesthetic – manifest in the designs of his silk garments and renowned Bangkok residence – blending traditional Thai and Southeast Asian flourishes with a soft-edged western modernism that sums to the perfect setting for an upscale Thai meal.

Over 80 classic Thai dishes are available from the a la carte menu at Jim Thompson: A Thai Restaurant, each tested many times by executive chef Jarutus Aumpha and his team of Thai chefs to achieve the perfect balance of Thai cuisine’s salty, sweet, sour and spicy elements. For Singapore’s halal diners, it’s good to know that everything on the menu here is pork-free, with many staples of Southeast Asian vegetarian cuisine available, too. Whether you’re after time-tested classics, innovative takes on Thai cuisine, or dishes straight from Jim Thompson’s monthly Thai cooking contests, they’re all at your disposal. Match your meal with wines by the glass, half-glass or bottle, dispensed using a high tech Italian system, and this Dempsey Hill restaurant is a top-notch destination.
