Great Thai Food

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... read 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

I had a craving for curry the other day and ordered take out from here, and was not disappointed, it was as good as I remembered, from having it before. I ordered the green curry lunch special with pork (although you can get any meat), which comes with jasmine rice, a choice of their noodle soup or salad, and they... More

Hidden from view need not escape your patronage. I have long enjoyed the Thai food at SOM SIAM just off the Guilford CT Green. The signage is right there as you walk the side walk. But a friend recently invited me to their other location in Old Saybrook... Easy to find, but off the main travel roads that keep some... More
