Having lived in Thailand before, i found that most Thai food outside Thailand do not sufficiently resemble the taste of those inside Thailand. This restaurant came very close to the original. The cooks and waiters and waitresses were Thai. The test of the taste was with somtam (papaya salad). Most places missed the taste but this came very close. Despite... More

Please be prepared to wait to be seated. The queue was super long. Waited about 50 mins on a Weekday night for dinner. Food is good, cheap and authentic Thai. Ordered 7 dishes including desert came up to $50 for 3 persons. Worth the wait!

I had read some reviews about Nakhon Kitchen, so on the spur of the moment one Wednesday afternoon, I decided to try it before the dinner rush. The food was very good and as authentic Thai as you can get. Definitely coming back.

The staffs were attentive and friendly. It was raining heavily and they took the initiative to bring a table over to block us from the rain as hubby and myself were sitting along the walkway. 👍🏻 Their green ice milk tea was yummy!

Its not the best but good enough to satisfy your cravings.Their lemongrass drinks are refreshing but a little sweet. Eat at this outlet but be prepared to wait for... More

I have had a lot of Thai food over the years and Nakhon Kitchen is by far the best (and my favorite) die die must try... well at least in Singapore. This place has been around for awhile and has a number of outlets (though Kovan outlet still is the one to go). The Kovan branch is so popular there... More

The Thai cusines was delicious and the price is very affordable. The thai cusine was mainly cooked and serve by pure Thai peoples. Try to avoid the peak hour because there is always long queue. Otherwise you should go early to avoid long waiting time. The Somtam (papaya salad) was a bit spicy for my family. Simply love the Mango... More

I always notice a long queue at this Thai Resto whenever I pass by, so I never attempted to go in, until one Saturday night. There was a shorter queue and after 10 mins, we managed to get seated. We ordered tom yam kung, the famous Thai soup with shrimps, clams in sauce and chicken pandan. I appreciated the tom... More
