For authentic and affordable Thai food, Golden Mile Complex is THE place to visit. After all, the place is known as ‘Little Thailand’ and is a renowned enclave for the Thai nationals in Singapore. While it isn’t the newest mall in town, there’s an abundance of Golden Mile Thai food eateries to discover, ranging from traditional Thai restaurants to the ever popular Golden Mile Mookata experience. 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.
Golden Mile Thai food: Our top picks
1. Beerthai House 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!

If you’re planning to come here on the weekends, be sure to come early to secure a table.

2. Y Cube Mookata
Y Cube Mookata Buffet is one of our favourite Golden Mile Mookata haunts. Located on the second floor, this popular joint is open till late so you can bring your supper kakis along for an amazing late-night meal. For only $29.90+ on weekdays or $32.90+ on weekends, you gain access to a wide selection of delicious marinated meats and fresh seafood. There’s crayfish, crabs, scallops and so much more!

This unassuming Golden Mile Thai food 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.
