6 Budget-Friendly Thai Restaurants in Singapore

Thai restaurants are popular in Singapore because Thai cuisines tickle all of our basic taste senses. Every dish has a mix of sour, salty, bitter, and sweet—and these tastes deliver a leveled-up gastronomic experience.

If you are craving for Thai curry, pad thai, or the tasty stir-fried pad ka prao, here are six budget-friendly restaurants you might want to visit:


1. Jane Thai

Another affordable Thai restaurant in Singapore is found at the heart of East Coast. Jane Thai is a popular restaurant among Thai food lovers. Satisfy your cravings with bestsellers pineapple fried rice, tom yum soup, and pad Thai. The restaurant is open every day and do take note that they have limited seats so make a reservation before heading down.

Jane Thai is definitely a place you can enjoy with your family and friends if you are looking for authentic, affordable, and home-style Thai cuisines


2. Ah Loy Thai

One of the best Thai restaurants in Singapore is Ah Loy Thai. This family-owned casual restaurant, located within Shaw Towers, is a perfect place for budget-conscious people. Expect a food spot that is simple but worthy of every dollar you spend as it serves really good Thai food. There are many items you might want to try out but Ah Loy Thai is famous for its pandan chicken and butter calamari.

Ah Loy Thai is located at 100 Beach Road, Shaw Towers and is open on weekdays, 12 to 8 pm, and on Saturdays from 1 to 7:30 pm. The restaurant is always jam-packed with diners so make a reservation in advance, or queue early to reserve a table.


3. Diandin Leluk

A real crowd pleaser among all the stalls in Golden Mile Complex (also known as Little Thailand) is Diandin Leluk. The restaurant is an open area with grilled skewers welcoming you and fridges full of Thai delights. Their menu is really comprehensive that you’ll go crazy on choosing which food to consume from their selection of salads, spicy curries, seafood, deep fried dishes, fried noodles, hearty rice dishes, stir-fried veggies, traditional desserts, and a whole lot more!

Diandin Leluk Thai should be on your list if you are looking for authentic Thai food in a typical Thai environment. It is open 24 hours every day and you’ll never be alone even if your cravings strike in the wee hours of the night.


4. Nakhon Kitchen

Have you seen the long queues almost every day at Nakhon Kitchen? This has been a popular go-to place for Thai cuisine. All of its branches in Singapore has identical menus so you can get the same delicious dishes whether you are in the East or West side. Try their addictive black olive fried rice with minced chicken and add a kick of spice with their chicken tom yam soup, which is a staple Thai dish. Also, Nakhon Kitchen offers good Thai food at very decent prices.


5. Jai Thai

Started in 1999, Jai Thai has been in the business of offering authentic Thai food to frugal foodies. The place is suitable for casual dining and big group gatherings, and offers a variety of authentic Thai food. Jai Thai has a wide selection of appetisers, salads, curries, seafood, meats, and vegetables. Their bestsellers include mixed platter, fried prawn with tamarind sauce, deep fried fish fillet with chilli sauce, steamed tofu with chicken basil, and fried mixed vegetables.

Jai Thai is a place that never compromises the quality of the food they serve with the price of their items. Visit any Jai Thai branches in Clover Way, East Coast, Purvis Street, and Orchard Road.


6. MooJaa

A popular Mookata place, MooJaa is a quirky restaurant for your Thai bbq and steamboat fix. If you are afraid of ashes sticking onto your clothes, MooJaa ("My Lovely Pig" in Thai) uses white charcoal as fuel so there is less smoke while grilling your bbq. This makes grilling safer and easier. Try out their cheese ball, which is oozing in flavorful cheese and can be thrown into the hot soup base if it has gone cold. They also have Mookata sets available that you can choose from ranging from $30 to $60.

MooJaa is located on Keong Saik Road and is open at 5 pm to 3 am on Mondays to Fridays, 12 pm to 3 am on Saturdays, and 12 pm to 11 pm on Sundays.
