Service at Nakhon Kitchen

I went with my family to Nakhon Kitchen last weekend to have our dinner, personally I feel the that the service staffs there are very friendly and they will show you where you should sit. They will repeat your orders again to double check. Their staffs always greet customers with a smile. I have not heard any promotion from Nakhon Kitchen yet, but hope to hear from it soon. I heard about Nakhon Kitchen from my friends and family.

Over-rated "Authentic" Thai Food

Was at the bedok branch few days back. Always wanted to try after hearing all the rave about it. Reached at 5.15pm, place opens at 5.30pm. Service staff starts taking order first (+ point). Ordered stuffed chicken wings ($4 for 2) and basil leaf with squid ($8 comes with rice and sunny side up), had thai ice milk tea ($3) for drinks. The tea was a bit bland for $3 there are much better ones around. Definitely not value for money. Place was almost food by the time my basil squid was served. Tasted funny, I started probing around the squid, hey where're my basil leaves. Nevermind... egg was cold and hard, meaning egg was most probably leftovers from lunch. Understandable cause I was the 2nd customer for dinner. Waitied for my chicken wings to be served, a guy whom I presume was the manager or owner walked over with the chicken and I told him my squid has no basil. "Har? not enough basil? you want more?" Me:"No, no basil" I probe around to show him, "see no basil la" Guy:"You want to change?" Me:"No, I just want my basil leaves...." He took my dish back, I i presumed he added the basil and did a quick fry again with the squid. Chicken wings was nice, not very good but the for $2 each it was worth the money. Queue starts forming outside already. My squid comes back. I looked in.. oh.. Thai sweet basil leaf... which is basically the wrong type. Most hawker Thai stores will fry with this because it hard to get the Thai holy basil which only comes in from thailand. Sigh so much for authentic thai cuisine. Seriously for $8 I expected something a bit more. Still I relished my food with gusto leaving no grain behind. Verdict: Tea too bland, not value for money. Boneless chicken wing, good value if can add a bit of garnish (a piece of lettuce below) would really bring out the colour of the dish. Thai basil leaf fry with squid. Overpriced because no Holy basil, else it would have passed. Plus egg was overcooked (can see greenish oxidized yolk).

Fast and affordable Thai food

We stumbled upon Nakhon Kitchen by chance, and it has become one of our go-to places for authentic, value-for-money Thai food – the food quality is consistently good, and there’s no service charge / GST (but also no-frills service and no air-conditioning).

Be it weekday or weekend evenings, the queues are equally long.  The great thing is, the restaurant is very well-run. From our experience, a queue of 10-15 pax takes only about 10-15 mins to clear.  The menus are handed out and orders taken while you are in the queue, so the food is served rather quickly once you are seated. Once you are seated though, it can be a little slow if you try to add dishes (so do it all at once in the queue!)

We frequent the branch at Holland Village, though they have equally-popular outlets in other parts of Singapore e.g. Hougang, Bedok, Pasir Panjang.  From the online reviews, it seems like queues are expected at all the outlets.

This is definitely not a chill out spot or fancy restaurant. But if you are craving for Thai food at affordable prices, this is a good place to go.
