Wonderful service

Being a place recommended by the staff at the hotel where we stayed. Was easy to find and we arrived just as they were opening. Despite this, they were very friendly and more than welcoming. The food was some of the best Thai we have had. Very flavorful and reasonably priced. All of the staff were... read more

Downtown Oakland has gotten a bad rap over the years...and while there is an element roaming around in the wee hours, the rest of the day it's a fine place to visit. This is our second time to Siam Bay, and we've enjoyed our meals both times. Having been to Thailand, it is refreshing to see a nod to authentic... More

we get delivery from here frequently. they pass my meat quality test with flying colors, their coconut milk soup and related dishes are WONDERFUL, and the vegetables are fresh and well cooked. if you are a peanut sauce addict, these folks do it perfectly. their green curry dishes, panang curry, and pra-ram chicken are my favorites. fresh and tasty and...

Without deviation, my Honey and I go to this restaurant every time we're in OAK! We've dined at many Thai restaurants and know which ones to keep on our A-list, and this is one of them.

We've been coming here since it first opened over 20 years ago. Although we have been to other Thai restaurants around the country, Siam Bay remains our favorite. It has the same authenticity as the food we've eaten in Thailand (a country we've visited several times). Rita, the chef, prepares all her curries from scratch and does not use pre-made... More

Of all the Thai restaurants that I frequent, all over the country, none exceed the food of Siam Bay. The offerings, flavors, textures and attention to detail make this my clear favorite. I can't leave Siam Bay without eating three times what a human should be allowed. I could almost move to Oakland, to enjoy this place on a regular... More

The decor is very dated and the staff is just ok but I came here for the Thai food, right so the setting didn't really matter to me. So I have ordered Thai green curry which didn't taste like a curry at all. A lot of zucchinis and a few prawns but nothing else! The taste was awful and I... More

We both work in downtown Oakland, so decided to try this local Thai restaurant. We've traveled in Thailand and eaten at many good Thai restaurants in the East Bay. Unfortunately, this was probably the worst. We ordered the green chili w/ roasted duck (sauteed with onions, peppers, mushrooms etc.) To our great disappointment the pieces of duck tasted "old" and... More

We love eating in our neighborhood and this is another gem. It's a decent size dining room with simple Thai decor. Starting with a mushroom soup sans coconut milk, we were hooked. The flavors are outstanding and spicy enough that my darling man didn't feel compelled to use any chili paste or Sriracha (that says a lot for him) We... More

We just walked up on this place when searching for dinner while staying at a Oakland City Center hotel. I am wary of picking a Thai place at random, but we were starving. Turned out to be the best Thai meal of my life! I had the spring rolls appetizer and the red curry chicken. Both service and food were... More
