Not bad; definitely not the greatest

Som Siam serves ok Thai food--not terribly authentic, not super delicious, but just ok. There are much better Thai restaurants around, but this is perfectly acceptable.

Disappointed by lack of vegetarian options in appetizers as well as main dishes. And the only veggie App was greasy and bland.. Even the carnivores in our group were disappointed /underwhelmed by their chicken satay app. For our main course we all ordered 'Drunken Spaghetti'. This was pan fried noodles, veggies and your choice of chicken , tofu or beef.... More

Som Siam is a local restaurant to us and we have visited there as a couple or with large groups of people. The food is always good and prepared quickly. The wait staff is always very pleasant. The dish that I really like lately is the crispy garlic duck. All the foods eaten here have been good. We have come... More

I ordered take-out from Som Siam and was pleasantly surprised at how authentic and delicious the green curry was. Having been to Thailand, I'm a tough critic, and I really enjoyed the flavors of the dish. I will definitely be returning to try something else!

I've been to both the Guilford and Branford restaurants and in my view this one is the best of the three. It was a spur of the moment visit; spring rolls were very good albeit a little bland, chicken satays were excellent served with a nice peanut sauce. Drunken Chicken is I refer to it was the best I've had... More

Not only the food is good, but also the atmosphere is great. The restaurant provides you a mini golf which your children can enjoy the game. Moreover, you will get 10% off for the meal if you are a mini golf customer. The food here is fresh, and the taste is like you are having food in Thailand.

This place is great. It's in an odd location next to a mini golf course. Some of the best Thai food I've had. We almost always eat here when we're in the area. Everything on the menu is excellent.

No choice for dessert but pleasant tapioca. Again, very small portion. entrees were two Drunken Noodles: one with pork and the other shrimp. One pineapple fried rice with pork. Entre reasonable portion. Could... More

Having just finished a round of mini-golf and looking for a place to eat we were enticed by the smells coming from the kitchen along with a 10% savings (from playing golf). Since all of us were Thai fans and have enjoyed their other location, we stayed here. The first sign of trouble began when I ordered a Thai beer... More

My review is limited, since I have only been here for lunch - which is great! A nice selection at very good prices, with your choice of meat, seafood, tofu, or vegetarian. Soup (regular or spicy) or salad, entree, desert. Staff is all Thai. Waitresses wear beautiful native dress. A fairly simple place, authentic, but not upscale or super attractive.... More
