Thanying Restaurant – Top Thai Restaurant in Amara Hotel


It must be more than 10 years since our last visit to the Thanying Restaurant in Amara Hotel in Tanjong Pagar, Singapore. This Thai restaurant, “serving the most exquisite Royal Thai cuisine fit for the royalties” has been around for 30 years. They started operations in 1988. In those days, we would have considered it a posh restaurant, a place to go for special occasions. Of late, with so many new and exciting restaurants, Thanying Restaurant has been off our radar for a while.

What is Singapore food? For the purpose of this post we are thinking of “local Singapore” food. Such types of food may not have originated in Singapore. They may be a part of Chinese, Malay,  Indian or other cuisine. Perhaps one way to describe Singapore local food is the type of food that we miss when we are away from Singapore for some time. We will adopt this rough and unscientific description for this post to avoid any controversy about origin (e.g. the sort that Rio Ferdinand’s recent tweet on nasi goreng stirred up – see Straits Times story).  Here is our list of the best Singapore food that we have tried.
