What to eat at Golden Mile before it goes bye-bye

For authentic and affordable Thai food, Golden Mile Complex is THE place to visit. After all, the place is known as ‘Little Thailand’ to locals and Thai nationals in Singapore. While it may not be the newest mall in town, there’s an abundance of Golden Mile Thai food eateries to discover, ranging from traditional Thai restaurants to Mookata buffets.

Having been there many times for our Thai food fix, let us share with you the Golden Mile Thai food outlets you absolutely must eat at.

1. Noodle Cafe

Yes, you read that right. The Noodle Cafe offers authentic Thai boat noodles for only $1.90! That’ll get you a small bowl of noodles, which is perfect for sampling different flavours. The  menu allows you to customise the size, type of noodles, choice of meat and spiciness level. For a full meal, we recommend you get the large bowl at $5.

The boat noodles taste fantastic, with its rich and flavourful soup. The beef and pork meat used was very tender as well. Many reviews have said that the boat noodles here really resemble the ones you find in Thailand. For a unique take on Thai noodles, you may also want to try the noodles with duck meat.

This hidden Golden Mile Thai food gem can be found at the basement. Simply head down the flight of stairs with a pink ‘Diva’ neon sign and you’ll see the Noodle Cafe on your right. Despite its secluded location and stuffy atmosphere, this place has plenty of fans.

Address: 5001 Beach Road,  Golden Mile Complex #B1-08, S(199588)
Opening Hours: Daily, 11am to 9:30pm
Tip: The flight of stairs down to the basement can be found outside Beef & Beer restaurant.

Even though BeerThai House Restaurant is hidden behind a row of shops in Golden Mile Complex, you’ll notice that the place always attracts a crowd. And you’ll understand why after trying it out – their authentic Thai dishes are fragrant and full of ‘wok hei’ flavour. We particularly like their Phad ThaiGreen Curry and Omelette ($8)! If you’re planning to come here on the weekends, be sure to come early to secure a table.

Address: 5001 Beach Road,  Golden Mile Complex #01-94/96, S(199588)

4. Rahn Ah-Hanh Khorb Khun

This unassuming eatery can be found along the exterior of Golden Mile Complex, facing the main road. If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to satisfy your Thai food cravings, Rahn Ah-Hanh Khorb Khun is the place for you.

We love their pork soup noodles and their fried garlic pork with rice ($5), the latter tasting very savoury and satisfying. The best part is that most dishes are affordably priced at less than $10 so you can order multiple dishes without feeling the pinch.
