In a bustling metropolis like Singapore, cuisine of various ethnicities are a dime a dozen and can be found in every corner of Singapore. What's more difficult to find however are good, cheap and authentic cuisine.
Nakhon Kitchen, a Thai cuisine restaurant place, is one such rare gem that is hidden in the heartland areas of Kovan, a stone's throw walk away from the mrt station.
Because of its popularity among the residents living in the area, be prepared to queue in excess of an hour if you are intending to go during the peak dinner period. While there is no official limit to the number of people dining in a group, the ideal number per group hovers at around 4. Any group larger than 4 usually have to wait a longer time as the staff would need time to pull together tables to accommodate the larger group.
Food items are ordered on an ala carte basis and come in standard size portions. Each dish seems to be catered to an ideal group of 3-4 so that detail should be taken in account when ordering dishes for your group. For a full meal, you can expect to fork out $30-$40 in total for your entire group.
Generally speaking there isn't a dish that you should avoid as everything is delicious in its own right. Personally I really liked the tom yum soup, green curry, kang kong vegetables and phad thai dishes with accompaniment of rice. Do take note that some of the dishes are quite spicy, so please consult your waiter beforehand if you are not used to spicy dishes.
