One of my favourites

A place that is frequently over-looked. I have been many times and it has been excellent every time I've gone. I've had red and green vegetarian curry along with the pad Thai, and a few of the black bean dishes. Excellent food and it is usually a very quiet and pleasant atmosphere. I can't wait to... read more

This is a lovely Thai restaurant situated like in the centre of town. We have been coming here for over 20 years and it never disappoints. The staff are very nice too.

We didn't book a table and it was a weeknight, it was very quiet, only one other person was there during our meal. The food is authentic Vietnamese, I know because I used to live there for a number of years. The food was very tasty and delicious, and the choice of Bia Hanoi and Bia Saigon brought a smile...

I have eaten at the Siam Orchid a number of times although the last time I ate there I found it short of its usual standard. Saying that, this time I have to admit to thoroughly enjoying the meal. Great starter platter followed by green curry and a masaman curry. Egg fried rice and coconut rice. The entire experience was... More

I went there on Saturday night with my son, my friend and his nephew. The Nephew was quite picky and wanted a Chinese Chicken Fried Rice which they managed to supply without an issue, my son had the same but my friend and I were more adventurous. I had the Thai Green Curry for the main dish and I think... More

You have to search for this place, it's not obvious from the outside and is easily lost amongst its neighbours. The food was fabulous - definitely the tastiest Thai green curry I've ever had. I recommend the Combo to share between 2 - a great starter! Both the red and green curries were a great success, accommanied with perfectly cooked... More

The place needs a refurb as it's stuck in the early nineties, but the food and service are both outstanding. Great price too. Highly recommended.
