Have never tried this Restaurant or very few Thai places. Decided to get take out on Saturday May 14. My daughter in Alaska loves Thai, so she gave us menu suggestions. We tried 1. Fresh Spring Rolls, 29. Spicy Basil Chili with ground pork, 42....Yellow Curry, 54. Pad Thai and 63. Golden Chicken. All were so yummy. The take out service was supper efficient. Will definitely get take out again and when it opens for inside seating will take friends.More

I visited this restaurant with friends on a Saturday for lunch. Great food, and the portions are huge. For those with smaller appetites, it’s big enough for two. I really liked my yellow curry with shrimp! All the appetizers were excellent too. Definitely a great...place to go, especially for large groups to share.More

The massaman curry, pad thai, satay all delicious. The thai salad was nothing special, it’s basically lettuce and peanut sauce although there was a nice sliced egg on top. The vegetables in the dishes were fresh and cooked perfectly. The room has a warm cozy...feel and the service was efficient and friendly. Great place for a date or family dinner.More

This is a typical Thai Restaurant that has good food, large portions, and reasonable prices. Service is good and you can get a main dish for under $8 for lunch. Stop in, I think you will enjoy your Lunch or Dinner.

My partner, who is Thai and a severe Thai restaurant food critic, liked this restaurant a lot. The location is at a busy junction with adequate parking. Ambiance is OK. We found the service very good on a busy Sunday evening and the food well...prepared and full of taste, especially the monsoon shrimp curry with a salty and spicy sauce. We don't live in the immediate area but would return to Star of Siam without hesitation were we to be in the Monterey Bay area again.More

Our group (9 people) tried the restaurant for a meeting and dinner. The prices are reasonable. We had appetizers and various entrees. The food was good, but not excellent or as good as another local Thai restaurant. The service was mediocre. While most of our...party received their orders, two did not. After ten minutes without receiving their order or any update on their status, we informed another server that we were still waiting for two orders. The server informed our server and then we heard some loud talking in the back -- not sure who it was. Several minutes later the orders arrived without any apology or word. Will definitely not return and will go to the Sawasdee which is the one I would recommend.More

Food is so good and fresh. The wait staff is friendly and helpful. This is a neighborhood gem. In crowded Capitola/Soquel, it is nice to park easily and have a great meal.
