Never knew about boat noodles until i had it at this place. So many flavours and ended up ordering all of them to try. But my fave has to be the sharing platter with all the glorious fried food infused with wok hey, and not only because portions are generous! Wash everything down with the ice tea and we are good to go

Smaller portions as compared to the Bugis Junction outlet. Even the iced tea is served in smaller cups. Ice pretty much filled to the brim. The Pad Thai is too oily. I was not informed either that they will substitute the seafood component with chicken.

See that the restaurant was busy during lunch time and decided to try. Managed to get a table outside. Not too bad or hot as they have ceiling fan installed. Boat noodles cost $1.50 each. Ordered a platter to share as well. The boat noodle tasted like small portion of instant tomyum noodles .. not fantastic. Platter was okay .. probably will pass next time.

Didn’t expect it to be this good when I came to try. Completely understand the long queues now haha. Definitely worth a try though the boat noodles here are pricier. Their other Thai dishes are quite legit too! If you love taro, you def need to get their Iced Terer Taro

Went on a Friday night and the queue wasn't exactly that long. There were outdoor and indoor seats available. You can make your order via scanning the QR code. Ordered 1 x Creamy Tom Yum Boat Noodle, 1 x Ayutthaya Boat Noodle, 1 x Omelette Rice, and 1 x Fried Chicken Meatballs. All were decent and omelette rice portion was pretty big. Meatballs were rather tough. Overall experience was okay.

Tried the original boat noodle for the first time. The service was pretty fast which was very good. The boat noodle bowls was abit small but expected as it was 1.80 each. I like the omelette egg rice. It was really good. The pad Thai was so so.

Even during busy hours, I feel that it is still quite fast. The noodles are fantastic and as good as always. Staffs are very nice and guided me with the payment with vouchers too. Place is clean.

Don't know where the Boat Noodle name originated from, but we decided to give it a try. The novelty here is the $1.80 per mini bowl of boat noodles. We ordered three and were impressed by the taste and textual of the broths. The surprise was with the side dishes: fried chicken wings and spring rolls. They were well flavored, well cooked, and of sufficient size. We had got that tea and iced lemon grass for drinks. Good enough. We went away happy with food and resolved to cone back again with a new ordering strategy. We will order one those larger dishes like Bangkok fried rice or Pad Thai (fried noodles similar to Penang's) and add a few side snacks and desserts. Overall, the food is good. But you better eat fast.

I frequent here but very disappointed that they've chosen to raise their prices by so much. My usual orders are the Omelette Rice and Basil Chicken Rice. Both used to be $9.90, and now it's $12.90, a 30% increase. Ridiculous. Final straw is the meagre serving of Fried Papaya Salad ($9). My last time patronising them.

Thai boat noodles was ok. Just right if you wasnt too hungry. Staff were attentive and quick. But Kinda of disappointed by the green milk tea :( it tasted a little bland. And looks like smaller cup too. Not too my liking i guess.

I go here often. The boat noodles is really good, but I have to say they are expensive. It is $1.80 per bowl but the noodle portion decreased :( The taste is really good but would be nice if they make it more affordable since portion size is small, you can eat it in one spoon. The service is good. The atmosphere is great :) The sides are tasty too. Fast service :)

The food was decent in general. The sharing platter (Boat Noodle Snack Sampler) was not bad. I like the Fried Chicken Skin! On the other hand, the boat noodles were pretty average.

Nice ambience and decor. Great service from ALL OF THEIR STAFF. Delicious food and every one of us enjoyed every dish. Thank you for the great meal. We truly enjoyed it. Get the Thai milk tea, you won't regret it. Its not like the sickeningly sweet ones

Okok taste for a high price. Not worth... Ordered their boat noodles. $1.99 plus 18% = $2.34 per bowl. I like their sprinkle of crispy fried wanton skin but thats it. Plain taste of tomyum MAMA, some parseley, nothing else. Their meat is bland and doesnt add flavour. BKK at orto last time has more flavour. Ordered their flame grilled ayam legend too. $12++ for such a small portion?? Ridiculous. A pathetic salad at the side and two measly pieces of chicken which didn't even taste that good. Their drinks are so expensive too, $5++ for one. Also dont like the sad chinese songs playing while I eat my food. They turn on a chinese radio station for what, I dont want to listen to Eric Chou and 那些年 and feel sad. Moreover got flies keep buzzing around our table idk why in a shopping mall have flies. A better thai nearby would be superthai at pasir panjang. Plays nice thai bops, people actually speak thai, lots of offers and delicious food. Worth your time and money there...

I’ve dined in before and had multiple small bowls of boat noodles and thought the food was decent for $1.99 per small bowl, so was surprised that the google reviews were so poor. However we ordered takeaway today and gosh for $7.99 the bowl of boat noodles was 99% rice noodle and a tiny bit of minced beef! No beef balls at all - so minimal protein and zero fibre. Should have just ordered wantan mee at the foodcourt. Terrible and would not return.

For a boat noodles restaurant, the boat noodles were astoundingly bad. I've had boat noodles before, and this feels like eating some small bowls of Maggi noodles in various soup bases. We ordered 2 flavours, and both were bad after a few sips of the soup (N10 A'thaya and N16 K'chap). We also ordered Phad Thai and omelette rice, tbh they were decent, but not amazing. Whatever it is, the boat noodles were quite traumatising. Don't think I will eat boat noodles anytime soon.

Trying 3 different type of the noodle I found the tom yum is good, but the rest is just so so Ordered the pad thai, portion quite small compared to other pad thai I’ve try. Flavour wise is just so so only. The steamed bread with the pandan kaya was the most let down out of all. But we felt very welcome by a very friendly lady. Her name is Christine, she has been helping us out, and recommend us the tom yum. She always smile to customer and has a very good hospitality service! For food was okay, but service is very good!!!

We got 6 boat noodles & 2 drinks for 2 people, the bill came out to be $24. The Pathumthani noodles were very salty. The creamy Tom yum doesn’t taste like Tom yum. The Ayutthaya tastes meh. Also I don’t really like how they (it’s not just them, to other restaurants as well) charged us service charge even though 1. We had to settle the bill at the counter 2. We ordered through QR code. It feels as though I could’ve just took the food and returned the tray myself without having to pay the service charge. I hope these are some things the restaurant can improve on. I liked that they played Taylor Swift songs and the overall atmosphere was really nice.
