Operating hours at First Thai is relatively short, and is packed with people most of the time! No reservation allowed, so come early if you want to avoid queuing.
Basil Chicken - Spicy, yet flavorful!
Green Curry - Very rich and creamy. Heavy with coconut base...a little less generous would had been perfect for me.
Panda Chicken - Fragrant and chunky, couldn't ask for more!
Phad Thai - One of the better ones around Singapore. Semi-wet and gooey (that's how I describe and prefer), balanced on the sweetness and generous with their garnishing.
Sea Bass in Thai Sauce - Some protein for our muscles! Very delicious and appetizing gravy/soup and the fish was fresh!
Overall, First Thai was priced a little above average but with good portions and taste. I guess that even things out.
Fist first thai with an open mind
Service here is negative 5. you will be rudely directed to your seat and during busy periods its an arm raising warfare between fellow customers.
The food is great! rich and delicious and almost exactly how casual thai cuisine should taste.
The value is superb! you can easy get away with a nice meal for under 12 bucks and still have a bunch of coins to buy some extra glasses of iced water (30c) to wash down all that thai goodness.
You are not allowed to get a table even if the rest of your party is arriving in less than 5 minutes. And when asked to use less sauce on the basil pork, the manager in charge herself tells you that her restaurant is authentic Thai and they can't adapt to your request!?
