“Not going back”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

Was surprised to see that we were the only people at for dinner at 7.30. Once the food came I knew why. It was a total let down for Thai food. Definitely not going back.

“Generous portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Penang curry and ginger rice at KDH1500 seemed pricy, but definitely enough for two meals. They will do "doggy bags"! Microwaved was excellent for lunch the following day!!

“No, it's definitively not Thai”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

I have been fortunate enough to work in Bangkok and I have come to love Thai food after that experience. So I was very keen to visit Siam Thai on a Saturday night with a couple of colleagues for a Thai meal.
The food on the menu consists of several well known Thai favourites, all at very reasonable prices. However, the food was not Thai. The taste was different and we noticed ingredients that I have never had in Thailand. I can accept that some ingredients will have to be replaced by local Kenyan ingredients, but not when it means that the dishes looses the taste and fragrance that makes Thai food special.
To makes matter worse, the dishes weren’t well cooked, fish and chicken were overcooked and bland. I will not be going back there.

“Siam Thai, Great restaurant for eating out in Nairobi!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We were a large group and enjoyed the many wonderful dishes that were prepared. We were ther early (around 7 PM) so no crowd. It was wonderful food!
The sodas were ice cold. That was not something we encountered on our visit to Kenya.
