The food is definitely good, but if you order dishes that are not as common quality goes downhill. Pineapple rice, different kinds of curry, vegetable dishes are the specialty. Everyone likes a solid Pad Thai and this one is not bad.
Because the place is so empty, the service is good but then it takes away from the ambiance. Sometimes a busling place just adds that much more. I have never seen it packed.
A little on the pricy side, but it is Thai food which means it will be slightly higher priced then East Asian restaurants but slightly better value than Western night time dining.

Servers were a little rushed but overall was prompt with service and refilling glasses.
Food is not AMAZING for the price they charge but I thought it was still quite good overall. There meat dishes and noodles are probably their most consistent Sizes are not up to par with other Chinese restaurants though.
Dimly lit and nice renovations make the place a good, modern Asian atmosphere...a little more Western then anything else. Would recommend if you don't mind paying a little more. I think it was like 7 dollars for a goreng pisang (friend banana)....a little much. But it is usually packed which is why there maybe so many bad reviews regarding the service.
Also, it is tasty but not exactly authentic Southeast Asian Food.

If you are Singaporean or Malaysian and are looking for authentic cuisine, don't come here because it is only authentic to non-Malay/Sing locals.
However, if you are look for delicious food for a good price this is a good place to try.
The Hainan chicken is always fresh, probably because they sell such a high volume of chickens which require new chickens every hour. Many restaurants that don't specialize in something that needs a couple hours to prepare will have it sitting there for a couple of hours before they sell it. You won't have that problem here. Satays are also quite good if u like good peanut sauce this is the place to be. The tohu goreng has a lot of peanut sauce.
All the other dishes are quite good as well. However, place looks like a take out place so don't bring your partner here for a romantic meal. Final word: service is decent and portions are huge.
