Royal Thai Cuisine with actual Chiang Mai vibes at Bukit Timah to shut down on 17 Dec

Nestled next to the rolling green pastures of Bukit Timah‘s countryside is a hidden gem offering an authentic Thai culinary experience. Royal Thai Cuisine has been a longstanding eatery since 2013, boasting a unique, verdant backdrop. Sadly, if you’re looking to dine away from our concrete jungle, it will likely be closing on 17 Dec 2023.

The closure is due to the construction of the Cross Island Line (CRL) and nearby residential works, which may even accelerate the deadline.

Possibly due to its hampered accessibility, the eatery even offers free parking for all diners.

Cooked by Thai chefs using only ingredients sourced straight from Thailand, a trip would be wasted without getting their signature Tom Yum (S$16), whether as a thicker stew or clear broth. The sharp, aromatic scent from its citrusy herbs springs at you when the dish is served, so brace for a decent spice level with each sip.

Papaya Salad (S$12) is another Thai speciality that successfully transforms an otherwise uninteresting dish into a salubrious blend of sweet and spicy. Special care is taken to select immaculate, unripened papayas for their crunch before they are tossed with red onions and red bell peppers, amongst other spices for a potent capsaicin kick.

Continuing their fiery repertoire is the Green Curry Chicken (S$18) which contrasts most dishes with its creamy sauce. Their expansive menu also includes Phad Thai prawns (S$19)Prawn cakes (S$14), Mixed vegetables w/garlic (S$14) and Hor Fun chicken (S$16) so those not too receptive to Thai cuisine will have plenty of options.

Fortunately, their Thai Boat Noodles bar locations can still be found at King Albert Park Mall and Science Park One, though you won’t get the same vibes.

If you ever want to experience what it’s like to dine in Chiang Mai’s green vistas, head down to Royal Thai Cuisine at Bukit Timah soon.
