Address: #01-67/68/69, Golden Mile Complex, 5001 Beach Road, 199588


In the early 80s, we started a food business by peddling on a rented lorry, selling packed lunches to Thai workers at construction sites around Singapore.

In 1985, with much strong support from our customers, we opened our very first Thai food outlet at Golden Mile Complex, called "Diandin Leluk" which caters mainly to the Thai community.

In 1990s, we started “Por Jai Authentic Thai Restaurant”, serving authentic Thai cuisine to Singaporeans and foreigners. All cuisine are prepared by the native Thai chefs whom have many years of culinary experiences.

'Diandin Leluk' is committed to providing award winning appeThaizing cuisine.

Currently we have 2 Diandin Leluk Thai Restaurant located at Golden Mile and Geylang Road (Beside Lor.7). Por Jai Authentic Thai Restaurant is located at Suntec City.

Decent, Affordable Thai Cuisine

Located in Golden Mile Complex "Little Thailand", the Diandin Leluk Thai restaurant has a long history. Founded by a husband and wife team as a mobile food truck service, before getting their current permanent location in 1985, Diandin Leluk is known for their cheap / affordable, tasty and authentic Thai food, prepared in rustic home style. Little wonder this 24-hour daily, 7 days a week Thai restaurant has been drawing crowds for years, many of whom have become regulars! However, I seem to recall their food was tastier in the past... it feels to me like standards are slipping.

Ambience at Diandin Leluk is simple, functional, and clean, though it's also cramped and bustling. The brightly lit place has solid wooden furniture, with marble topped tables, packed closely together. The place is noisy, with lots of movement and activity, resembling a coffee shop. At least it's air-conditioned and clean. There is some Thai decor adorning the walls, from newspaper clippings to pictures of the Thai monarch. Most eye-catching is the huge photo of rice farmers in the paddy fields. The place is suitable both for a quick eat and go meal, as well as lingering meals with long conversations.

Service at Diandin Leluk is efficient. Staff are able to converse well in both English and Thai, seat guests quickly, and clear / empty dirty tables or plates fast. I like their proactiveness in this regard. However, it does take some time to attract their attention, while staff are observant, they're also usually busy and rushing around. Still, at least when they speak to diners, the conversation is calm, polite, and unhurried, the staff gives you full attention. I must commend this, for staff from other restaurants in such situations usually are quite brusque. Only payment is self-service, everything else is tableside service. Orders are also quicky fulfilled, and staff help to arrange the table while serving.

Food at Diandin Leluk is decent in taste, generous, and affordable. The owners still oversee the preparation and hand make several items as well, so you're getting authentic, rustic Thai food. Fresh herbs are imported from Thailand throughout the week, and ingredients used are sourced fresh daily. Taste of most dishes is average to above average, though I notice the amount of spicy heat has been toned down for local palates, thus, most dishes aren't spicy, or just mildly spicy. Portions are generous, and communal dining of at least 3 people is encouraged. Prices at Diandin Leluk are cheap and affordable, budget about SGD $15 per person for a full meal!

Had sudden craving for Thai food last weekend and decided to head over with the family to Golden Mile aka Little Thailand. Have heard how the place is now famous for Thai food.

Overall, the food is very average but once you factor the price and ambiance in, I wouldn't really want to come back again. Here in Singapore, we are simply spoilt for choice when it comes to Thai cuisine. Many other better places.

This was the main reason I went to Golden Mile Complex. Thai Red Rubies! Water chestnuts cut into chunky cubes and coated with tapioca flour and dyed red. Served with coconut cream. Satisfied my craving and made my day! 

 

The other dessert I got was the Thai Mango with sticky rice. With a side of coconut cream, which you drizzle over the mango before tucking in. Mango was sweet. Got this from Golden Mile Complex - Diandin Leluk Thai Restaurant, which has a dessert takeaway counter! Many Thai desserts to choose from.
