This was one of those restaurants that I decided to dine based on Trip advisor reviews and also because I was staying nearby. The recommendations by fellow reviewers were spot on !

I chose Vegetarian Green curry with rice (special request made t billing counter) which was just brilliant due to freshness of ingredients, crisp and just rightly cooked veggies and hot bowl of rice. Serving was quite big and filling.

Look no further if you are in this location - this place serves awesome fresh food and rightly priced.

The area around the Singapore river is a tourist trap, with numerous over-priced and under-performing dining options. You could pay inflated prices to sit by the river at Clark Quay or Boat Quay and eat forgettable food. We chose, instead, to retreat into the (pleasantly air-conditioned) basement food hall of a shopping mall and eat extremely well-priced, utterly delicious thai food, served with friendly hospitality. Everything we ordered was wonderful. Nothing was too spicy for our western palates. Highly recommended.

UOB cards currently having a 15% off promotion on minimum $20 spend which is great as they already do not charge GST nor service tax usually! The service was good - our female server took the utensils etc. to our table. Tissues provided and bird's eye chillies. You can order at the counter or at the table.
The food was fresh, not overly oily, nicely spiced to suit most palates and authentic. Only wish my papaya (Som Tum) salad had its peanuts ground instead of whole and some bean sprouts for better balance.
The servings of rice (Fried Green Curry Rice) were BIG - enough for 2 women to share. Soup serving size was good for two with generous servings of meat and mushrooms - recommend you get a bowl of rice for SGD1 to accompany. If you don't specify you want pork, they will give you chicken for the soup.
Try the Lemongrass Drink if you like lemongrass - it is strong and goes down well when the ice has melted. Clear and refreshing.
Dessert SGD5, mains SGD7-8, appetizers SGD6-8 and drinks SGD2-3, if I recall correctly. I'd go back again. Look for it at the centre of the basement food court in Clarke Quay's Central Mall, near the cake in a jar shop. Access directly to the basement via the MRT.
I wish more people visited this reasonably priced and comfortable little gem.
