“Delicious, authentic and cheap!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

Located in the Golden Mile mall, it has NO atmosphere (yay!) and great food. Super cheap and filled with Thai people, so always a good sign. Don't be put off by the looks of the place.

“Street Food in a restaurant...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

Love the food here. Service was good too. Surrounding "mall" not that great, but this place has some of the best Thai food outside of Thailand I have ever tasted.

To be sure, it is not fancy or sophisticated dining and the decor just is, but of you are in the mood for some really good Thai food, look no further.

We had Clear Tom Yam Soup, Fishcakes, Papaya Salad, Stir Fried Morning Glory, Spicy Steamed Seabass, and steamed rice.
It was all delicious, but my favorite was the Clear Tom Yum soup (quite spicy). The Stir Fried Morning Glory and the Papaya salad are a must too.

The Thai Iced Tea is quite good if you like that - almost as good as the stuff you drink out of a plastic bag in Bangkok.

Made me really miss the fantastic street food you take for granted when in Thailand....

Will likely become a regular here at Diandin Leluk.

“cockcroach and substandard food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

I was looking to impress my guest with some authentic Thai food and experience and we chose to go to Diandin Leluk. Food arrived quickly, a bit too quickly and they were lukewarm or at room temperature. The prawn stir fry with asparagus smelled not so fresh, fish cake unexceptional, pad thai had minimal ingredients and the chicken in the tom khai ghai was simply not good. And we had a visitor, a cockcroach crawling on the table.

“Authentic Thai Food, Lousy Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

Diandin Leluk has the reputation of serving the best, authentic Thai food in Singapore – a distinction that I felt I had to explore for myself. I was pleasantly surprised.

Food
The food easily compared to the real deal served in restaurants in Thailand. The Tom Yam Goong was piping hot, spicy, tangy and mouth-wateringly delicious. I could barely stop eating it in order to do justice to the rest of the food we’d ordered. The garupa was fresh and flavourful as was the rice and papaya salad.

Staff & Service
The Thai staff was polite but slightly inattentive. Getting a waitress’s attention could prove something of a task. We didn't have to wait very long for our food to arrive.

Ambiance & Location
Golden Mile complex, in Singapore’s Little Thailand, isn't the best of locations – it is pokey, noisy and dingy. The ambiance of the restaurant itself is lousy. There are cheap tables and chairs carelessly laid out. You could find yourself dining out in the corridor of the building on a busy night.

Value for Money
This place serves up some great food that is good value for money. The portions are quite generous.

Tips for Diners
Make a reservation as this place is very popular and crowded. Avoid looking into their kitchen if you’re finicky about hygiene and don’t expect prompt service. Don’t miss the Tom Yam Goong.

Overall Impression
The food here would far outclass any fancy Thai restaurants in more upmarket areas of town.

“Inexpensive and authentic Thai food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

You will not find this restaurant just passing by. It is located inside of a "mall". Once inside the mall you will think you are in Thailand - there are a only Thai shops. Be aware it smells badly.

The restaurant is somewhat clean and the staff is really friendly. The food was great! We went there for lunch. The toilet paper instead of napkins takes gettting used to. On the other hand, you usually do not even get any napkins in cheaper restaurants in Singapore, so this was a step forward.
