Supunsa Cafe Thai Cuisine
The Cafe Supunsa is locate near Clark Quay, in a passageway leading to the restaurants behind Robertson Walk. It is a small and unimposing place, more diner than restaurant. It was clean, however, and the menu looked good – so we gave this a try.
There were four of us for dinner and we chose Pad See Ew (thick rice noodles fried with vegetables and chicken), Gang Keow Wan (traditional hot green curry), Gang Dang (milder traditional red curry) and Panang (a thicker red curry). Each of the curries was available with a choice of chicken, beef, pork, prawns or vegetables and priced between SG$ 10-12. We also took some spring rolls to share, and plain rice to accompany the curries.

Well, the food in this little diner was very good indeed. Despite being “mild” the red curry was much spicier and flavoursome than the more westernised versions you find in London (whilst still being smooth and creamy). My colleagues reported the same with the green and penang curries, which led to us all leaving the restaurant as happy campers. As drinks we chose a variety of fruit juices, all of which were served nicely chilled. Service was friendly and quite quick (the place was not at all crowded).
Cost & conclusion: It was about SG$ 65.00 for the four of us (though I was not the one paying the bill), which I found to be excellent value within a touristic area. It is possible to eat much more cheaply in Singapore, of course, but compared to others in this area, the quality and value was very good. Definitely recommended if you like Thai food and are in the area.
