“Authentic Thai cuisine with its spicy spirit included”
Reviewed 27 September 2011

It is basically the sensation that one is out of Singapore when you get a table at this amazing restaurant. With a very simple concept in decoration and the owner,who is Thai,along with the cooks,you cannot find a better place to fall into a sea of pleasure if you are into Thai cuisine.

One of the best attractions from Thailand in Singapore!

“Great Thai food”
Reviewed 8 May 2011

I picked First Thai because I couldn't find the restaurant I was looking for. This place was busy at 2:30pm - so I figured the locals knew something.

Tried the Phad Thai w chicken. Food was amazing - had the feel of an open market, quick eat local spot.

“Not bad, but there are better places for the same price”
Reviewed 30 January 2011

We had tomyum prawns which was a bit too sour for our liking tho the prawns were large n fresh with quite a generous number in the pot. The basil chicken was a little too salty for our liking. The pandan leaf chicken was fantastic though. The durian pudding too was fabulous. The mango with sticky rice was forgettable. Note that they won't serve you drinks and dessert only.

Charming atmosphere in a coffee shop with no air cond. It was a cool day when we visited so we had no problem with that.

Overall, not bad, but we prefer Thai Noodle House at King's Road- our fav Thai family-style restaurant. We might go back just for the pandan chicken and durian pudding tho- really yummy. The different styles of fish look good too.

“My Favourite Thai Restaurant in Singapore”
Reviewed 16 January 2011

As a flight attendant, I fly to Singapore pretty much ev week. My first stop is always First Thai, delicious Thai food served in a cafe environment. I recommend the Chicken in Basil Leaves or Chicken and Cashew Nuts. Prices for mains is approx $10-12 but you can pick different sizes.
