Dian Din Leluk has been around for close to 40 years, serving legit Thai dishes at Golden Mile. They’ve recently moved to City Gate. The Thai-owned eatery dishes out a solid plate of Phat Thai ($6.48) that’s been said to taste just like what you’d get in the motherland. Each serving gets you chewy rice noodles, beansprouts, tofu, fried egg, and prawns, tossed with a messy peanut-and-chilli mix. There’s also an Omelette Phat Thai at $8.64, which features the same noodles wrapped in a fried omelette.

The eatery offers luxe seafood dishes if you’re looking to splurge. There’s the Dian Din Signature Tung Hoon Crab ($48.60), or the Lobster Fried Rice with Lava Egg ($32.40) that feeds two to three diners.
