Description: Thai cooks have never been in the habit of recording measurements of ingredients or time of cooking. They cook by experience and " feel" and the art of ancient recipes handed down in families, by practice. The Thai make much use in their food with such condiments, seasonings, sauces and flavourings such as fish sauce ( nam pla), including cardamom, coriander, anise, and other seeds, cloves, nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon. Lunch is a light meal of noodles or fried rice. The main meal, one of rice with two or three dishes, is eaten in the evening. The dishes are not courses and are served all at the same time with plain steamed rice. You are meant to take a mouthful of this and a mouthful of that, some rice in between, in whatever order you like, enjoying the different tastes and textures of each mouthful.

“Absolutely wonderful hidden gem :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012 via mobile

Ive been coming here for years and it just grts better and better. The most fantastic Thai restaurant I've ever found in the country. I've travelled Thailand 4 times and this is a beautiful authentic restaurant. Incredibly presented food with the best tastes. I would pay double what they charge. A small family run establishment they always recognise you and pop over for a chat, lovely smiley people :) very small place it feels like you're walking into their house or something it's wonderful, not a single complaint :) miles and miles better than any of the other over priced Thai restaurants in town!

“Simply the best in Banbury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

The Siam house is not the biggest Restaurant, however the food is really really good. I always used to go to the other Thai restaurants in Banbury, but now this is the only one for me.

We have been here many times and it is in my opinion the best in Banbury.
The food is very good and so is the service.

“Great value, fabulous food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

Beautiful Thai food - great value for money (set menus at both lunch at dinner), great choice and great service. Only a small restaurant so may become busy at weekends, but well worth booking to come here.

“Tasty and fresh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012 via mobile

Went here for first time last night, having lied in area for three years, really good impression. Service was polite and smiley at all times, food was delicious and fresh throughout. One tip : book at weekends as this is a very small restaurant and popular.
