Mad Thai Restaurant is an unassuming place located on the stretch of road between Katong and Siglap. I have the impression that Mad Thai Restaurant is more like a Thai-Chinese place, and while definitely not an authentic Thai place, is still quite decent.

Mad Thai Restaurant has a modern, minimalist vibe to its ambience. The decor is simple and uncluttered, lit with warm lights, resembling a modern cozy cafe.

Service at Mad Thai Restaurant is pretty good. Staff are friendly and attentive, and food is served quickly.

Food at Mad Thai Restaurant is a sort of fusion of Chinese Zi Char and Thai inspired dishes. Most of the signature dishes happen to be deep fried / fried. Overall, the food is somewhat on the oily side; and the taste is quite decent, though somewhat lacking in the traditional Thai combination of sweet, salty, sour and bitter tastes.

Overall, Mad Thai Restaurant has quite decent food, although I wouldn't recommend it for authentic Thai food.

The Crispy Kang Kong was well fried, with the vegetables crisp and crunchy, and not wilted or soggy.

I liked the Green Curry Chicken for its intense flavour and aroma.

The Lime Juice Seabass was esily the best dish I've had here. Fresh, whole seabass fish, in a tangy, spicy broth... Lovely and delicious!

The Mango Sticky Rice is also among one of the better ones I've eaten, with the rice properly glutinous enough and the mango fresh and sweet.

The Clear Tom Yum Seafood Soup was sufficiently sour and spicy, and one of the most value for money dishes on the menu.
