Mai Thai Restaurant is a casual Thai restaurant at the quaint beach front like dining deck of Greenwich V in Seletar Hills. It seems to be one of the most popular restaurants there during lunch time. The reason might be the current set lunch at $14.80++.
There is alfresco seating but we suspect that may be popular only on cool evenings. For lunch, the air-conditioned indoor dining area, which is simply decorated in typical Thai style, is the sensible option.
The menu at Mai Thai is quite comprehensive. They have a vegetarian menu with items such as Tom Yam Vegetable Soup, Spring Rolls and Pineapple Rice. The regular menu offers some interesting dishes like Grilled Australian Beef Salad, Prawn Floss Salad, Crispy Sea Bass with Mango and Cuttlefish with Salted Eggs. Traditional Thai favourites – Prawn Cakes, Basil Leaves Chicken, Pad Thai, Green Curries and Thai Desserts – are all offered.
A single serving of Tom Yam soup is $8.50 and noodles and fried rice will cost around $12. Meat items will range from $12 to $19; and seafood will range from $18 to $32.
The set lunch comprised a glass of Thai Iced Coffee, Tom Yam Soup, Green Curry Chicken with Rice and Tapioca with Coconut Milk. You can opt for a salad instead of the soup. Instead of the green curry for the main course, you can choose Olive Fried Rice, Panaeng Chicken with Rice or Pad Thai.
The Tom Yam Soup served was the classic clear soup. It had zesty flavours but was not too sour. Although it looked mild, it was quite spicy.
The Green Curry Chicken had pieces of tender chicken that were well simmered. The curry sauce was aromatic with a hint of sweetness and had good consistency.
The dessert, boiled tapioca, was served warm with creamy coconut milk and was a sweet ending to a satisfying meal.
On the whole, the set lunch was reasonably priced and the food was good. We would return to Mai Thai to try other dishes.
