Was hesitant to make a reservation here after seeing quite a number of bad reviews on Google Maps, but I'm glad I decided to risk it based on my previous experience at another Gin Khao branch. The basil pork was moreish and plentiful, and the runny fried egg was perfectly cooked. Even the sliced cucumbers(which are usually dry and stale at other Thai restaurants) were refreshingly crunchy and juicy. Of course, expect to pay a premium here for the location and view.

Smoky, laden with crunchy vegetables and tender pork slices hidden under sheets of silky rice noodles with just the right amount of bite, this plate of pad see ew was satisfying, but a little small for the $5.9 I paid for it during lunch, and I was hungry a few hours later.

I opted for non-spicy, and without the heat and kick of chilli, it was disappointingly bland. There was barely a whisper of basil and the sauce tasted predominantly of soy.

The best kind of wanton mee is the kind that’s slicked in lard and bits of fried garlic. Kin Moo’s comes with 2 slices of fatty char siew and 2 large wantons. Of note is the peppery soup with a large slice of daikon that lends its natural sweetness to it.

Overall, its tasty, but for this price it’s not much.

These are seriously stinky beans right here, but in a good way. With a raw funk that will put off many but has me hooked, they're stir-fried in a moderately spicy and sweet chilli sauce with chillis, onions and juicy prawns. Slightly smoky and brimming with umami, I could eat this with only a plateful of plain rice and walk away a satisfied man.

Nicely grilled squid with visually appealing char marks. Eaten on its own, the flesh is tender but doesn’t carry much taste. Dipped into the accompanying sweet and mild chilli sauce, it’s a flavour bomb and textural delight.

Huge and fluffy with a crispy exterior, this is what a proper Thai omelette is all about. Ask for the sweet chilli sauce that comes with the grilled squid because it goes great with the omelette and rice.

Westies, sate your mookata cravings with Jub Jub Mookata's Platter for 4 ($40), featuring a bevy of 15 assorted goodies including marinated pork collar, pork belly and chicken thigh, smoked duck breast(!), prawns, black pepper dory, luncheon meat, Thai fishcake and fish balls. The meat items go especially well with their house-made Thai-style chilli sauce that packs just the right amount of heat and a dash of sweetness.

There's extras you can top up for too, and I particularly liked the cheesy tofu, pork balls and salmon. A must order is the MAMA brand Tom Yum instant noodles - add the packet seasoning to the bubbling pot for an instant spicy kick to your soup!

After having seen so many positive reviews about this dish I knew I had to try it, plus I never say no to ‘drunkard’ anything.

They must put liquid cocaine into the sauce, because hot (literally) damn, is it addictive! Every mouthful of equal parts savoury and spicy sauce-slicked noodles possessed an indefinable umaminess that drove me to ravage my food in a feeding frenzy, until I finally looked up, and naught was left but my hunger for more.

Smoky with a slight sweetness, the slurpworthy noodles are charred at the edges and fried with broccolini, julienned carrot, egg, lots of garlic and tender beef slices. A good squeeze of the lime adds a burst of freshness that really perks the dish right up.

A well done smoky, saucy, spicy version of the beloved Thai street food staple, there’s a nice herbaceousness from the holy basil and good crunch from the long beans. Plus points for the oozy fried egg.

Simultaneously crisp and juicy, all these strips of succulent meat need is a quick dip in the sweet and fiery classic Thai dipping sauce before being promptly demolished posthaste.

I think I’ll make it my mission to try every single item on the menu.
