The front of the restaurant looks a little distressed and the interior is almost pretty nice. A few tweeks and it could be a nice destination. There are some grime issues in the wood of the partitions. The tofu soup that comes with lunch was probably the most bland thai soup I have ever had. I had to add some... More

I wanted to try something new. I was not disappointed in my choice. I had the drunken noodles with chicken. It had the perfect amount of "heat" and spices. I loved the amount of garlic.....they were not stingy with it. The portion size was perfect. The service was great, wait staff friendly, prompt, and helpful. I sat in the corner... More

Went for lunch with 2 friends. We each had a different curry, green yellow, and the masal....whatever. They were so very ordinary and the protein (chicken, beef) were very sparse. White rice, we were not offered brown rice, there is really no reason to go here if you are looking for top notch Thai food.

So its all about your point of reference. Nice size portions along with great service make this a nice place to dine. The quality of the ingredients is very good and the food is nicely presented. The restaurant has a nice casual family feel to it and the pricing is very reasonable. If you are accustomed to American Thai food... More

The Massiman (sp?) curry is the best! Any of their curries! Also the pad Thai is awesome. I have never been disappointed here!

We loved the casual, retro diner feel of Siam Thai. Booths were great for our kids and the food and service were both excellent. We ate there for dinner and lunch. Would definitely recommend.

Decided on an early dinner on a Friday night. We have friends that come here for lunch and decided to find out why they speak so highly of the food. My date had the Stir Fried Pu Ginger and I had the Siam Fried Rice. Both were superb and generous portions. Service was adequate for a 5:00pm dinner, and additional... More

We went for a late lunch and were glad we made the choice for Siam Cafe. The emerald green upholstery probably looks cheerful all the time. Our server, Art, was friendly and helpful, keeping up with hubby's questions and banter. The Tom Kai soup had a lighter than usual coconut broth, perhaps 1/2 coconut milk and 1/2 other broth. The...

I've passed this restaurant many times, but wasn't inspired by the exterior. But a friend lives Thai food and this was ideally located. The minute we stepped inside, I knew we were in a good restaurant. Even though it was early, there were several customers. It was clean, well decorated and the place settings were more upscale than usually find... More
