About Long Chim
Star chef David Thomson has taken inspiration from Bangkok street food and urban design, the famous hospitality of Thailand – ‘The Land of Smiles’ – at large, and fused them together at Long Chim, a stunning restaurant and bar housed in The Shoppes, Singapore’s largest luxury shopping mall. Making the most of a premium Marina Bay Sands spot (with parking off Bayfront Avenue), Long Chim’s sense of style runs from the art-nouveau-meets-Indochine interior design through to the beautiful dishes on offer, creating one of Singapore’s best Asian dining experiences. The phrase Long Chim means ‘to come sample’ in Thai – this popular restaurant’s street-style dishes have been created to be shared and paired with a range of exciting contemporary cocktails.

A cross between a Thai soi or backstreet and a typically chic upscale Singapore restaurant, Long Chim’s Marina Bay Sands location along Bayfront Avenue invokes an urban aesthetic lifted from Bangkok’s sprawling city suburbs, tempering the grit with a dash of chartreuse-and-absinthe-coloured art nouveau a la Indochine française, to forge a genuinely unique dining atmosphere.
Special events & occasions
Ideal for celebrations and large gatherings of all types, we recommend Long Chim’s Maa Long Chim menu for bookings of ten people or more, a generous selection of the chef’s favourite dishes, with optional wine-pairing suggestions, for a fixed price per person (minimum two people).
If you’d like to organise a bespoke dining experience for a large party, use the Enquiry tool to get in touch with the restaurant’s events management team.
Serving up the type of dishes that are made to be passed around the table and shared with friends, the Long Chim menu features a range of Asian tapas-style options as well as main courses all crafted by the Michelin-starred chef, bringing a gourmet touch to Thai street food. Here inside the restaurant’s sublime Marina Bay Sands premises you’ll find Southeast Asian favourites like Thai green curry with beef, prawn laksa and papaya salad, as well as some more adventurous options such as a sour orange curry of snakehead fish with water mimosa soup, and one of Long Chim’s most popular delicacies – sun-dried squid.
Not only is this superb Singapore restaurant renowned for its high quality Asian cuisine, but it also features an award-winning bar serving up cocktails like the literally fiery Bangkok Blazer, all with a Thai-inspired twist. For a special Thai experience in Singapore take a trip to The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands along Bayfront Avenue and find Long Chim up on the second level overlooking the casino – but be sure to make your reservation at this popular Marina Bay restaurant in advance and online to avoid disappointment!
Long Chim is located on dining level 02-02, overlooking the casino inside The Shoppes retail complex at Marina Bay Sands.
Take public transport to Bayfront MRT (CE1, exits B, C, D, E) on the Circle Line extension.
If you’re visiting the restaurant by car, there’s plenty of parking available at the Marina Bay Sands complex off Bayfront Avenue.

Amazing food. Beautifully dense, complex spicy flavors superbly balanced. Every bite was an adventure. The service was great and our table had a nice view of the city skyline, although all the focus for me was on the food.
Green curry 5 stars. Chicken curry noodle 5 stars. Cocktails 5 stars. Loved the ambiance and overall design of the place. A taste of thai street food in Singapore. Great value set lunch. Enjoyed very much!
Serving size was a little too big. Wait staff should have cautioned us that two of the dishes we ordered come with white rice. We would not have ordered the phad Thai.
Quite a surprisingly great meal! Dare say it rivals and even bests some eateries in Bangkok! Full on flavour! Full on heat! Deserts are awesome! Best mango sticky rice yet! Rice had better texture than the average and the coconut cream was luscious with enough salt to counter balance the sweet mango
Long Chim is a lovely restaurant. Great ambience. We were lucky to get a seat by the window. Great view of the Marina Bay Basin. Their weekend brunch is great value for money! We got to taste so many of their popular dishes. All of them perfectly seasoned. One cannot fault them. It's my first time here and it wont be my last. Loved it!!!
we ordered 5 different main dishes and 2 desserts, and the tilapia with salt crust is the best one. we didn't like red curry chicken and baked prawns with glass noodles at all because they are too salty and dry. The kailan with crispy pork is a bit too oily. We like Tom Yum seafood and banana roti. Do not order the pandanus & sticky rice dessert. The bill came up to about $80 per person, much higher than we expected. Compared to Sabai at Custom House, we would be paying about $40-50 per person.
I went there with high expectations so I was somewhat disappointed with the "rather average" food. It wasn't bad, I just expected better. The ambience was somewhat warm and stuffy (hardly felt any ac) so don't go there wearing any 3 piece suit. It was also noisy as we were seated next to a table with a noisy child. On the positive side, the service was excellent with very warm and attentive waiters throughout. Even the chefs were smiling to us over the open kitchen.
The new lunch menu is very good value! Everything was cooked to perfection. The portions are just the right size. We have eaten here many times, so we have tried most of the alacart menu, and never got disappointed. I miss the lamb curry that is out of the menu though!
Thai curries prepared oh so fresh and bursting with flavors... You can taste the difference. We were happy with what we ordered: chicken green curry, soft shell crab curry, pad Thai, tom yum, Kailan.. The only thing that's keeping this rating from a 6 is the steep price relative to the serving size. But taste-wise, thumbs up.
The atmosphere was fantastic - chic and modern. I went there with a few friends after the Vernissage of Art Stage. The appetisers were great but the main dishes were a bit disappointing - it was too rich and salty. I considered that it was a bit pricey for Thai food, e.g. it costs $30 for a dish of Pha Thai noodles. The staff members were friendly, but a bit too attentive for me. I am not in a hurry to go back. Thanks.
Food was great and service was fast. The set lunch is an excellent value for money. We didn't like chiangmai laab dish as it is different from what we had in Chiangmai and way too spicy for our palate. We love their Khao Soi or Chiangmai curry noodles.
Disappointed with the food... The spring rolls were nothing to rave about. We had green curry beef which was too salty & gravy was too thick. The Pad Thai was just as disappointing... soggy & overly sweet... the flat noodles were too chewy. Other than the restaurant decor being nice & helmed by a celebrity chef... Nothing to rave about as the food was quite a letdown for us. And I thought the place was promising based on write-up.
Overall a good experience. Food was good and the taste experience was positively different from just traditional Thai. Staff was friendly and attentive. Wouldnt mind to actually try it during evening rather than the brunch set up. Think the overall atmosphere will be better in the evening.
Service crews were very helpful and vert attentive to small details (eg push a chair nearer to you to put your bag etc). Midway through the dinner, service crew ask about how's the dish etc. Good food, good ambience, good service.
Beautiful restaurant, with authentic and flavourful food. The fish could have been fresher, which was the only thing holding back the meal from getting full marks. The staff were attentive and provided excellent service, with good knowledge of the menu.
Excellent food quality along with exciting variety. Service was impeccable too. I definitely recommend this place for all occasions and I will definitely go again to try the dishes I didn't.
The service was good and prompt. But the food was very disappointing, especially given the price. The squid was way too salty. The prawn cake dish were not what we expected - it was whole small shrimps deep-fried in batter (not the expected blended prawn cakes), which would have been more acceptable had it been accurately described in the menu. The pad thai was rather spicy, which again would have been more acceptable had it been indicated in the menu, as one of the diners did not like too spicy food.
Great food and atmosphere, you would not realize that the restaurant is in the middle of MBS. The service was impressive and a wide selection of items on the menu.
The food we had was delicious, however the only lamb dish on the menu was unavailable and the only rose wine on the wine list was sold out! For a restaurant of this calibre and fairly concise menu and wine list, this is disappointing.
One of the best experiences i've had. The gentleman who looked after our table was attentive, and spot on when recommending a pairing wine. Food was excellent as well.
Good food and attentive staff, and an extensive drink menu. Casual and relaxed atomisphere. I liked it! But i'm not too sure if it's worth the money. Perhaps i should have ordered more challenging dishes rarher than Thai standard dishes... Maybe next time!
Knowledgable staff recommended our orders and portion came out just nice. Wonderful and attentive service during the dinner. Food was fantastic, the grilled eggplant appetiser was the bomb!
Excellent food and service as always. The food standards and spice levels are equal to the flagship branch in Bangkok and it never disappoints! We will be back!
Overpriced and very ordinary. Dishes were reasonably executed but lacked creativity. Service staff were generally helpful but cannot made up for a lackluster menu. We ordered a crunchy park on price priced at $30 but was shocked to see a few pieces of very ordinary roast park on a plate of price (exactly like a $3 plate of roast pork price you can get at a hawker centre and not even that good!). Felt like a rip-off!
exceptional as ever…first try of the Weekend brunch - you will not go hungry! Dishes had some great spice and attentive service from the team.
Very Funky venue - a little dark, great views, good menu, helpful staff, excellent food, nice atmosphere - all in all, a delicious meal that we thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you
Food and service excellent. Loads of variety, happy hour on weekend a bonus! Staff friendly with good suggestions and happy to adjust heat level of the dishes. Will go again!
Always a very good dining experience, friendly staff, niceview and great food, that is if you like it "HOT". The wine list has also improved which is also a bonus.
The food was so tasty and flavorful, we thoroughly enjoyed every item we ordered! Would definitely return and recommend, it will be such a satisfying experience for your taste buds!
Our starters were served before the drinks arrived, which is a pet hate! Starter was extremely salty. Overall, the food seemed to be roughly seasoned and rather than the delicate balance that I have experienced at other top Thai restaurants in Thailand. Much hyped celebrity chef, but we thought this restaurant fell short. Disappointed. Service was ok otherwise. Cocktail selection was pool and we were underwhelmed by the taste of the ones we chose.
The food is good and the portion is just right but the pricing is a bit expensive. The service can be more proactive and better. Overall experience is good
Thai food with a slightly different interpretation to it. Ambience and food are great but steep prices. This is however one of the more affordable celebrity chef restaurants
great food great service. would have loved the experience to be slightly more special given that i had noted it was a special event. but nonetheless, good overall
Nice decor with a touch of industrial elements. There's a lunch menu available but we went to alacarte in the end. Red Curry with Duck is really good. A little pricey for my liking.
The food is always excellent. The service however was a bit disappointing. The service staff twice returned to the table to say a dish was not available (& the menu is not that extensive).
Authentic delicious Thai cusine restauant. but too big portion for 2 persons. I wish to small or middle portion size. Store rightning too dark, but very moody.
Nice and delicate Thai flavours, the two prawn starters we had were very good Excellent service Would go back to try on some of the classic
We were told the food delivery would be delayed for 20 minutes be cause of a big party to serve. Hey... the restaurant was not full
Food was not as good as the last time we came. Very salty and dry. Service was prompt perhaps because it is lunch and not many people come during lunch time. Thai iced tea tasted so diluted that is not worth getting.
Service great. Happy hour cocktails priced very well. Bar bites tasty and enough variety for a group - just enough pre theatre. Everyone left happy.
Food are good especially the prin's noodle! Great services with prompt recommendation for the dessert after dinner is done. enjoying the durian dessert very much Worthwhile to spend a dinner here!
Found a rather big dead ant in the rice noodles. Which the server immediately apologized and had it changed. Otherwise,everything else was ok. However,no one came to check on us.
Unique presentation of Thai street food served in a classy setting. Didn't get to try the recommended green curry beef due to a miscommunication but overall a satisfactory experience.
Lovely menu to look at but every single dish that we ordered was way too spicy. The kitchen couldn't seem to tone down the spice level. Disappointing as we have read good reviews before booking.
Comfortable setting and warm ambience. Beef satay was a little bit salty but curry and chive cakes were delish. Service is overall quite good and prompt.
Friendly ambience, not at all threatening for a celebrity chef restaurant. Love the pad thai but found overall prices a little high for such simple food
Food presentation is good but taste is not authentic Thai. Our expectations were much better. We ordered their signature dishes which the server has recommended us. I don't think we will go back there.
Service was excellent. Unfortunately food not up to the same standard. If this is supposed to be Thai street food reinterpreted for fine dining - then my view is go for the real thing.
Good service and ambience, except food is too salty and portions are fairly small. Phad thai and basil rice are safe choices, desserts are great!
Great Service but average food. Wanted to try Tilapia but was told that the delivery of the fish has not arrived (was informed that fish came, half way through meal; perhaps next time).
