This shop does not seem like an authentic Thai shop, with it selling curry fish head as well. However, it is one of the better thai food i have had in Singapore. The milk tea is very sweet and thick!

Fried squid, a huge portion was served, such that it is impossible to finish if there is only 2 people having it.

Their clear Tom yam soup is good too, spicy and slightly sour. Tasted authentic!

Mata Thai is a popular Thai food restaurant near Bishan central and is quite crowded during dinner time. The food can be quite value for money, especially if there is an ongoing promotion on certain dishes like curry fish head. However, the promotion is now over and the price has reverted to $18. The curry went really well with the fish head and wasn't too spicy. The fish head itself was quite fresh and fish meat was tender.

The Signature Curry Fish Head cost only $10, Thai style. The curry was very nice and robust, best eaten with Rice! There were too little curry given! The fish head was very fresh! Despite the fact that only half the head was given and the curry was very little, it was amazingly value for money.

The Thai Style Fried Kangkong was a simple but delicious dish! The vegetable was well fried and still had a crunchy bite to it. In terms of flavour, it was light yet tasty. Moreover, there were slices of tiny chillies which provided it with a spicy kick.

The Fried Garlic Squid was average.

Interesting way to serve the Tom Yum Prawns! Allows the Tom Yum soup to be kept warm constantly.

The Tom Yum soup was cloudy and orangey. Although there was no chilli oil, do not be deceived by its appearance. It was quite spicy and sour with lemon-grass fragrant. It was served with prawns and Japanese mushrooms. The Tom Yum soup was delish however, the prawns were not fresh.

Fresh Young Thai Coconut ideal for cooling down on a warm day.

Carlsberg to cool my friend down from the warm humid day.

Overall, I would say Mata Thai is very value for money. Moreover, the food quality was good too! The Curry Fish Head is a must try! At such a price, where else can you find such quality curry fish head! In terms of service, it was very good. In fact overly-friendly.

Mata Thai have been constantly having this promotion selling their Curry Fish Head at $10 instead of $18.

The Signature Curry Fish Head which every table has. It was served in a claypot, consisting of half a fish head cooked in curry. The fish was fresh and the curry was flavourful and robust. In terms of spiciness, it was just nice and complement perfectly with plain rice. At $10, its quite value for money.

The omelette was well executed; fluffy, soft and delicious.

The Thai Style Roasted Chicken was also well executed. It was crispy on the outside and tasty. The only downside was that it was a tad too dry on the inside. At $12, it was value for money as half a chicken was served. Much better compared to the Pandan Chicken

As for the Fried Baby Kai Lan, it was decent. Lightly flavoured and still crunchy.

Overall, an affordable and value for money meal.

The pandan leaf chicken came nicely wrapped in the form of 6 little dumplings. We did not really both about the glossy
looking surface as the chicken inside was what mattered most. Fragrant and so tender!
Pineapple rice was not bad and had generous amount of floss, pineapple and cashew nuts. The portion was a little too
small for 4 person to share though.
The fried squid were served crispy and puffy (batter). We all could have eaten this dish on its own as snacks!
Seafood Tom yam soup was a little too spicy for most of us. Luckily it was shared and we had a bowl each. Had some
prawns which I did not eat, some squid and mushrooms. The mushrooms were really sweet as maybe because they
absorbed the soup.
A simple dish of onion omelette. Simple yet delicious!
The mango sticky rice was disappointing as we felt that the rice was slightly hard, lacking the stickiness as well as the
chewiness. Although we shared among ourselves, we still did not finish the rice. (About 2 bites leftover only)

The $10 fish head come in a serving for 2 and don't bother to take away as it only fill less than a quarter of the take away container. Thus, best to eat it there or you may want to request for the original price portion which is $18.

The curry is not the usual curry, it is with the Thai element in it and it is not too strong which is accepted for us. The curry itself is thick, the fish head is fresh and spicy level is in between. Worth a try!

Tom Yum Prawns $6

You may think that we were crazy to order Tom Yum when we had fish head but well, the menu was a little limited you see.

The Tom Yum was not too bad, decent not too overly spicy and it is those kind that you will keep drinking bowl after bowl in slow pace without realizing in. But I felt that since it is the Tom Yum Prawns, there must be adequate prawns in it! We could only scooped 4 pathetic prawns for the 3 of us.

Roasted Chicken - $12

This dish is just like the Ayam Penyet, expect that it comes with the green sauce which I don't know what it is but it tasted sweet. The roasted chicken is worth exploring as the green sauce is really special.

Sour Plum Drink - $1.50

I like the sour plum here, it is home made and the ice is squash so that the ice don't melt and dilute the drink.

I will definitely come back if I am nearby as the pricing is pretty reasonable!
