Tried the tomyum soup, it was good but wasn't exceptionally fantastic. However, I would highly recommend this dish: Fried Fish with Spicy Garlic Sauce! Thick chunky fish meat with zesty sauce, perfect complement! For a more in depth review, you may visit http://thickbrowboy.wordpress.com

Standard not as good as half year before.
Quality of food getting bad,
especially tom yam seafood soup,
full of mushroom inside the soup and major seafood only have little bit....
should consider as Mushroom tom yam soup
Service worst!
although First Thai didn't charge for 10% service charge, but they should have basic of service,
doesn't mean " black face" all the time...
will not visit again.....

 The Green Curry Chicken was a disappointment. It looked as well as tasted watery and didn't have much ingredients in it.

The Fried Kailan with Mushrooms was a sad quantity for the price paid. Moreover, we were served choy sum instead of kailan and not informed that a switch had been made. The taste was what you could get at a typical zhichar stall with more salt added.

The Pandan Chicken was a decent portion although I couldn't really taste the marinade as the spiciness of the chicken overpowered all other tastes. However, the meat was quite tender and relatively juicy.

The Fried Prawn Cake was charged by piece at a relatively steep price.  Thankfully, it was quite packed with prawns and the overall taste remains respectable.

The Steamed Fish with Ginger & Soya Sauce was the only saving grace of the night's dinner. A whole steamed seabass at a flat price of $30 is a rare find in Singapore these days. The fish was fresh and the portion could easily feed 5-6 pax.
