Probably one of the best if not the best Thai food around. Prawn dishes were excellent! Cannot get enough. Wish the food would come out sooner though but still worth the wait. Nice ambience, very authentic Thai.
This is my 'go to' place for thai food! Will make you feel like you are in Thailand. The staffs are very friendly and great in service. Highly recommend!
Food, ambience and service was excellent - love the place
Great ambience food and service . Green curry is out of the world
Very delicious food, great environment and great staff. Whenever I am in Bangkok I would go to Jim Thompson Bangkok. The only things is restaurant should impose on dress code on Guest. No shorts, no gym clothes and no flip flops. Family with childrens should be place at one corner of a restaurant as kids running around destroy the dining experience of others Guests. The dining experience between Jim Thompson Bangkok and Jim Thompson Singapore is incomparable. As an establishments Jim Thompson Singapore should impose on the dress code.
This was my first time at Jim Thompson Singapore. My wife and I chose it for our 28th Anniversary and it was great. Service is not the best thing in Singapore's restaurants, even the very expensive ones, but they were so nice and accommodating. At the end they brought us cut fruits with a candle and had all those young waitresses sing a love song for us. The food was good, not exceptionally great (my wife likes Thai better than me, she loved it). The atmosphere is just the right thing, nice old bungalow form the British Army among trees, very quiet place, great change from all those ultra-modern places at very high floors in the Singapore skyscrapers.
I had my birthday dinner yesterday at Jim Thompson the food was fantastic and in reseaonable portions. Definitely go for the sea bass fried fish it's fantastic and I loved how they took out the flesh of the fish and separated it away from the bones the plating was great! When they sang my birthday song I thought their voices together were lovely ! throughly enjoyed my experience and would definitely visit again!
We ordered mostly vegetarian dishes as we had taken a relative who had restrictions and the food was very good and he very much enjoyed it too. The beef we ordered on the side was outstanding but the chicken satay was pretty standard for the price and we only got four sticks so wouldn't order that again. The prices are definitely on the higher side of what i've seen in Singapore, so would probably book this place for a special occasion next time as its quite expensive. It was also a little hard to get the attention of any staff if we needed anything, and they seldom came to check if we needed anything so that was a bit annoying. The rest was great and would definitely come back.
Environment and food were very good. The only thing I'd mention is that it isn't a child-friendly restaurant at all....my son was crying and someone came and asked me to bring him outside as he was "disturbing other guests". I do understand he was crying and maybe someone may have complained, but the least they could do is apologize and talk to me in a much nicer way, the way it was done wasn't polite or gentle at all. Wouldn't go back because of this....it's Singapore and everywhere here is child-friendly. Also, $12 for a fresh juice was too overpriced...I can buy a few watermelons with this money.
The restaurant is in a heritage property with high ceilings and lot of chandeliers. Thai dancers come regularly which adds to the charm and ambience. It is located on Dempsey hill and you would not feel you are in the city when you enter the area. We were very happy to see a full vegetarian menu and tried mango salad, Khao phod, Phad Thai noodles, Red curry and Steamed Rice. All the dishes were very nice. If you like Thai food it is a must go place. Best Thai dining experience ever. Loved every single time I have visited it.
