“Just Don't Call For Takeout”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

We have eaten here many times and the food is always very good. Service is friendly and they always seem to be rushing around to make sure everyone has what they need. However takeout is always an issue. When ordering they consistantly tell you it will be ready between an hour to an hour and a half. On this trip I was about to order takeout at 7pm knowing I'd get the standard response and we would be eating between 8-8:30pm. Sure enough "One hour, 20minutes". My partner then said "Why don't we just head over?" We had our usual order of the fried shrimps, soup and green chicken curry and rice and were back home at 8:15pm. Worth it for Thai food, just don't order takeout if you're in a hurry. If you are, Anna's on Holland has takeout ready in 15-20min.

“Nice Restaurant and Staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

Went with friends. It was our first time. Arrived early but the place is relatively small and filled up quickly. A reservation is recommended. Staff were friendly, patient with our questions and helpful. Appetizers were served quickly and delicious. Main course was a little slower and there was a mix up with one dish (came much later than the others). Overall, a nice place for a small group. Noise level gets up there when the place is full, so it's not ideal for a romantic evening.

“Always so good!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This Thai restaurant is my favourite in Ottawa. The prices are reasonable, the portion sizes are good and the service is usually very good.
The quality of the food is outstanding and the flavours are always so enticing!! If you have not had the chance to eat here and you love Thia food, this is the place for you. It will become your favourite too!

“Always a pleasant eating experience!”

There is another Thai food place in the vicinity but I prefer Siam to the other one for their food and service! Their Pad Thai is the best!

“Great offerings, full of flavour and spice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

A great place to get lunch, dine in or take out.

The best Pad Thai I've had in Ottawa, although there's no shrimp in the lunch pad thai its perfectly balanced. Great selection of soups too, tonnes to try!

Friendly and quick service even at it's busiest.
