The fun and patriotic Gin Khao Bistro is full of dining surprises, where you will find the national flag not on the roof but served up on a plate in the form of a striped red-white-blue cake. Combine its exotic creative food with its relaxing location at the Sentosa Cove in Quayside Isle and you have the perfect spot for a quick Thai getaway without even leaving Singapore. Take a seat at the restaurant’s extensive outdoor dining area to enjoy the views of the luxurious villas and ease into the relaxing rhythm of the docked yachts bobbing along gently in the cove.
With a restaurant name that humbly means “eat rice” in Thai, you can expect simple home-style Thai comfort food such as Juicy Chicken in Green Curry Broth, sour and spicy Tom Yum Seafood Soup that is served with rice or rice crackers of course. Make sure you leave room for Gin Khao Bistro’s modern and innovative interpretations of traditional Thai dishes. Pineapple is replaced with watermelon to produce a refreshing and sweet version of the fried rice dish in Khao Phat Dtaeng Moe. For the adventurous foodie, go for a spicy dessert experience with the Green Curry Gelato with Sticky Rice. Visit Gin Khao Bistro to give your mind and palate a Thai-flavoured break. (Nov 2015)
