There were 4 of us, so we picked out some apps to share. Many of the items have a photo in the menu, so we figured what we had ordered was enough to share. Well the portions in the photo were much bigger than what we received. How completely annoying is this! The crab ragoons were pictured as a plate... More

We went with a party of 8 for a late Sunday lunch. Everyone at the table was served their food but me. The waiter never came to explain why my dish was delayed. We planned on dessert, but before we could order it we were given the bill. While the food was good, I wouldn't rush back to eat here... More

The quality of this restaurant had gone down in terms of consistency of excellence of the food and service last year. But we have visited twice in the past two months and both times the food and service have been terrific. This may be because the owner is now back on site. Whatever the explanation for the improvement, this restaurant... More

Although the food at the Guilford CT. Som Siam is good, there are some caveats about this restaurant. The service, never first rate to begin with, has deteriorated to the point where we had to walk out one time because there were four people ordering takeout, and it seemed too much for the staff to handle. After waiting about ten... More

Years ago this restaurant had great food and great service. More recently, the food is less consistent and the service frequently poor. They recently added a TV to the main dining room, which detracts from the atmosphere. Seems that the Guilford location has received progressively less quality control since the Old Saybrook branch opened.

We were in Guilford with friends on a Sunday afternoon looking for a restaurant for lunch. We came across Som Siam and thought that the bevy of New Haven Advocate awards as a sign that the restaurant should not be missed. Unfortunately the food was some of the worst thai food that I have ever had. Out of four people,... More

The food is wonderful here and the staff very friendly and nice. My only concern is the restaurant is old, tired, and dirty. Don't look down at the old carpeting. But I still go there for take-out...prefer to eat in my own home. :)

We started going here when it first opened in Guilford somewhere around 2000, and we just LOVED it. Since the, they have opened another restaurant in Old Saybrook which is much larger. The service in the Old Saybrook location is good, but the service in Guilford has become pretty bad. The food is still good, but not quite as good... More
