our story

It all started with our love for honest and wholesome food that's cooked simply but with lots of heart.


See, it is all too easy to prepare great tasting food with all the artificial additives we can get our hands on these days. But we do not want to use any of those. The idea of Once Upon a Thyme originated in 2011 when we realized that eating good = feeling good. We love pastas; we love herbs. Pasta, a low glycemic index food, is rich in complex carbohydrates and low in fat. Herbs are known to have surprisingly good disease-beating nutrients, while adding wonderful natural flavors to food. But it is also how we cook them that makes a difference. We believe in doing good and making THE difference.

With that in mind, Once Upon a Thyme started its operations at a tiny stall at Golden Mile Food Centre. Helmed by an enthusiastic, passionate chef who honed his culinary skills spending his formative years at notable kitchens in the F&B industry, our formula for happy food is coupled with high regard for quality food. Our signature dishes, Battered Fish Aglio Olio, Chicken Bolognese and Spicy Meatballs Tomato Cream Spaghetti have earned us many rave reviews and the number of regular customers who keep coming back for our pastas are our best testaments to our eat good = feel good philosophy.

Here at Once Upon a Thyme, we take our pastas seriously; we commit ourselves to serving you quality pasta that is cooked with you in mind. How so? By using natural herbs and healthy ingredients; by not using additives or artificial flavourings; by adhering to strict standards in our food; by not diluting sauces just to keep costs low. And of course, by making sure every bowl of pasta we serve is as yummy as the last!

Staying true to our beliefs, Once Upon a Thyme found its place in the hearts of many. Now located at the basement of Square 2 (Novena MRT), we focus on takeaway pastas packed in convenient to-go boxes for your enjoyment anywhere.
