Porn’s Thai Food is a Thai restaurant owned by Singapore Mediacorp Artiste Pornsak. If you watch Singapore food variety show, he is a well-known TV host for his sunshine character. When you see or hear the word Porn’s, there is nothing than what you think. It actually mean blessing from heaven in Thai! Nothing close to your favourite “movie” at all. “Porn” is also common in Thai names. If you visit Thailand, you’ll also see interesting word on Thai restaurant menu which has beautiful meaning behind. Besides “Porn”, you will also see “Poo” in Thai Food Menu. “Poo” means crab in Thailand. You might also hear “Fuk” on a dining table or in the night market. “Fuk” means vegetable in Thailand.
Porn’s Thai restaurant is located opposite Bugis Junction and along Liang Seah Street surrounded with many steamboat restaurants. At the helm of Porn’s Thai Restaurant is celebrity chef Ramita Geerayooth. Chef with more than 30 years of culinary experience and was once a personal chef to Hollywood couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. At Porn’s, all snacks, drinks and desserts are homemade. I was recommended to try Porn’s Tom Yum Soup and Grandma’s Handmade Prawn Cakes by one of the friendly staffs.
Innocent Tom Yum seafood soup with fresh seafood like prawns, thickly sliced fish, squid slices and more at S$10.90*. Well balanced of hot and sour taste in the clear tom yum broth. P.S. I have requested for less spicy soup.
Green curry with assorted vegetables long beans, eggplant, mushroom and more at S$12.90*. The thick green curry sauce simply tasted good with a bowl of plain rice. I could have finished a big bowl of plain rice in this flavourful green curry.
Twosome platter at S$13.90*. You get 2 pieces each for grandma’s handmade prawn cakes, Thai fish cake and fried chicken wings laid on a piece of banana leaf. I think this platter tasted normal and is over priced. Yes, it applies for the signature prawn cake. Contains more flour than prawn bites. It also comes with sweet and sour chilli sauce.
There is a 1 for 1 promotion for drinks at S$4.90*. Left half untouched as they were diluted with ice water after the meal.

Porn’s Thai restaurant has awesome friendly and helpful crews. Many plus points on customer service. Good green curry with vegetables and tom yum soup that I might return for. However the price is a little steep for Thai food. And on a side note, I miss the authentic Thai food from Thailand!
