Nothing else to add! Special highlight for the cashewnut chicken and the Pandan chicken! Don't judge the place on the external appearance it's very clean and ideal for a diner with friends!!! No need to make a reservation. Only Cash accepted. Closed on Monday.

We got a good range of dishes, kang kong with garlic, steamed fish with soya sauce, basil pork, some fried rice, and a few other things. Overall the food is too sweet. Would be cool if the chef cools it with the sugar.

From a self-confessed foodie, if you want excellent authentic Thai food, this place is for you. We have been eating at First Thai for over 10 years and have never once been dissatisfied. The pork Pad See Ew is the best I have ever had....More
