“Good Thai Food in a Typically Athens Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Athens, Georgia, is a town where eclectic is the norm. Siri Thai is located in the Bottleworks, which is an old Coca Cola plant turned into a multi-use facility, just off of Prince Avenue. Parking is almost non-existent on the grounds, but there is a largish lot across the back street dedicated to visitors to the Bottleworks. Just be careful crossing that street, y'all, because there a lots of young drivers in this college town.

Siri Thai has a small spot, with a correspondingly small menu, in this complex. The decor is charming, but the seating is a little tight for tall folks. Most of the tables were set up for two diners, but they pulled a couple of them together for our party of three. We were seated quickly on a Saturday at lunchtime. We ordered from the lunch menu, and the prices were all under $10. The hot tea was welcome on a chilly day, as was the clear broth based soup. The spring roll was tasty, too. The menu states that diners can adjust the level of spice, which was quite welcome. Hubby and I got differing versions of Tropical Fried Rice, shrimp and pork respectively, and we thought they were also quite good. Our son got a more traditional dish, Pad see ewe, which looked interesting. He thought it was divine. Portions were not huge, but for the price paid, I wasn't expecting to feel stuffed after the meal. Service was really good, too.

There are a number of desserts on the menu, but we didn't try those.

Visitors to Athens might have a bit of trouble finding this small spot, but it is worth it for those who like Thai food or something different from other offerings downtown.

“bad food, worst service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

The tom kha soup was too sour, with the white color, reminds me of sour milk. The fish was too sweet, might as well dip it in honey. It is among the worst Thai food I've had. To make things worse, the waiter demands 20% tip for lunch in addition to the already charged large-group tip, (maybe she forgot it charged) . The waiter later became angry because some of us didn't give that much additional tip and she refused to take a group picture for us. Worst worst experience, never go there again

“Best Thai in Athens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

I have been to Siri Thai twice now and both times have been a positive experience. The menu has something for everyone including many Thai favorites. The level of spice can be tailored for each dish so everyone is happy. The food is more upscale than many Asian restaurants in the area so don't expect the greasy fast food that is served in other area restaurants. This is certainly the best Thai food in the area.

“Thanks Tripadvisor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

So I am in Athens Ga for Business and had no idea where to eat and the receptionist at the hotel was zero help? Where to I turn? I know my TripAdvisor app where I found Siri Thai. Hmmm Thai, that sounds good, and it was.

The restaurant itself is small but provides a nice atmosphere. The staff was friendly providing just the right amount of attentiveness.

The Thai spring rolls were exceptionally fresh and delicious with a wonderful Tamarind dipping sauce
For my main course I ordered the Duck in a red curry sauce. With the ability to choose the degree of spiciness, of course I went hot. The Duck was cooked perfectly with a nice crispy skin, and the sauce was spicy but not overwhelming.
This place is so good I might go back tomorrow night.

Always looking for a locally owned place to enjoy ethnic cooking, Siri Thai did not disappoint.
Great service, nicely decorated room, good portion size for the money.
