Promising ‘comfort flavours, traditional recipes’, expect your favourite Thai appetisers, soups, salads, rice and noodle dishes, curries, seafood and more that is as explosive as the original you will find in Thailand, with sauces and spice imported from The Land of Smiles for truly authentic flavour.
The restaurant is named after the Sala Chalermkrung Royal Theatre in Bangkok, first opened in 1933. The name was chosen as the Arcade @ The Capitol Kempinski is also home to a cinema icon of Singapore – the Capitol Theatre – drawing parallels between the city nation and the regal kingdom of Thailand. Like the Capitol Theatre, The Sala Chalermkutung Royal Theatre that was first built by King Prajadhipok as part of the celebrations in 1932 to mark the 150th anniversary of the founding of Bangkok, operated as a cinema in its early days before it is transformed into the centre of classical Thai dance it is today.
At Chalerm Thai, that storied past and colourful flavours are brought to life by Chef Roy Ng who has spent over 13 years training in the kitchens of Singapore’s best Thai restaurants. His dedication to his craft has seen him awarded the Thai Select award by the Royal Thai Embassy (Singapore) and is translated to the palate with must-haves like the Tomyamgoong, built with classics like Phad Thai Kung and culminates in a colourful end with sweet delights like Thai Trub Tim Krub.

Showing no signs of slowing down, Maxi Mango is taking the mango craze to Singapore with their very first flagship outlet here at Capitol Piazza.

What are you waiting for, guys and dolls? Capitol Milk Bar beckons!
They treasure special memories here at Capitol Milk Bar, that’s why they have dedicated many of their burgers to some key people from the history of the Capitol Theatre.
Like silent screen legend Charlie Chapman and his brother Sydney who visited with Capitol Theatre’s Joe and Julius S. Fisher in 1932. Then there’s Douglas Fairbanks, one of the first movie stars to visit Singapore. During his 1935 visit he came to The Capitol to watch the film David Copperfield (1935) with Lady Sylvia Ashley.
Even Hollywood’s most irresistible woman Ava Gardner made an appearance here in 1954. She was in town to promote her new film, The Barefoot Contessa and attended a private dinner right here at the Capitol hosted by the Shaw Brothers who had taken over a damaged and neglected theatre after WW11. They repaired and restored her to former glory, also adding the now iconic neon sign. And let’s not forget that fun little fellow who entertained young Singaporeans with weekly matinee cartoons every Saturday from 1933 – Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse.
Many have fond memories of the popular Magnolia Snack Bar. Opening first as the ‘Creameries Milk Bar’ in the Capitol Building in the 1940s, they served ice creams, milkshakes and cakes. It was a hit with Singaporeans both young and old for social gatherings and post-movie bites. Magnolia Snack Bar closed in the late 1980’s but we have brought back the sweetness…
Strike Me Pink was a 1936 American musical comedy starring Ethel Merman – the undisputed First Lady of the musical comedy stage. We named our take on the local classic chendol dessert “Singapore Dash” a reference to Douglas Fairbanks and his “high-speed visits” to Singapore. And, The Jungle Book as a dedication to author Rudyard Kipling who made many trips to Singapore. Imagine being in the theatre in 1942 to watch the classic on the big screen after they turned it into Technicolor action-adventure film!

The flagship store presents a new destination for fans of Dr. Martens, the free-thinking individuals who are united by a relentless spirit of self-expression.
Spanning 1700 sq. ft, the new Capitol flagship stays true to its original British roots with fixtures and furnishing that evoke a classic British Shoe and Boot shop. It is also the first store to feature a 150 sq. ft stage. Future plans for the music stage include hosting intimate music gigs and interview sessions with independent bands, both international and home-grown.
Rare, archival photographs documenting the rich heritage of Dr. Martens and the youth movement are a highlight alongside a fully functional Dr. Martens jukebox. Classic Chesterfield wing chairs in rich burgundy leather are reminiscent of those found in the 1940s podiatry office of Dr. Klaus Maertens’ – the inventor of the revolutionary air-cushioned sole.
A section is dedicated to Dr. Martens Kids footwear for infants (1–18 months) and juniors (2–7 years old) , showcasing collections that retain all the classic attributes of the original and well-known brand silhouettes in miniature versions; while another section is dedicated to the handcrafted quality and traditional shoe-making techniques of Dr. Martens’ premium “Made In England” range. Still manufactured in the original Cobbs Lane factory in Wollaston, England – this is the home of the original Dr. Martens boot – and within this small factory works a close-knit team of people schooled in traditional shoe-making that distinguishes the premium and luxurious “Made In England” range.
The Dr. Martens brand heritage is steeped in underground subcultures and their style tribes. From the early skinhead, a multi-cultural ska-loving homage to the British working classes, to punks, hardcore, psychobilly, Britpop, emo, and many others from a long list of subtribes – music is Dr. Martens’ cultural lynchpin. The new flagship store pays tribute to this legacy with a 150sq. ft. stage – a platform that will continue to cater to and foster the music communities that have been so integral to the Dr. Martens brand heritage. Future plans for the in-store music stage include hosting intimate music gigs and interview sessions with independent bands, both international and home-grown.
As with all Dr. Martens’ stores in other major cities, such as New York SoHo and London Covent Garden, the Capitol Piazza flagship store offers a unique Dr. Martens experience by combining brand heritage, emblems of its music and subcultures lineage with the art of industrial manufacture.
