“Very nice Thai food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

The meals are tasty and you get good value for money. The staff are all very friendly. The decor may not be 5 star but if you were eating in Thailand you wouldn't expect it to be either. Will be back again when working in the area.

“Yummy Thai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

Food was tasty, good quality and good value for money. We were not greeted upon arrival and had to attract attention of staff not watching counter, in order to be seated. We were not offered drinks upon being seated. Service was slow, even on quite nights.

“Look past the plastic cafe blinds and go in!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

We were recommended Cafe de Siam by our accomodation hosts and were not disappointed.
An ecelectric assortment of table seating and staff engaged in animated conversation with diners greeted us on arrival. We were seated (without a reservation) quickly.
Barely understanding the menu (extensive choices avail) our waitress took significant time to explain the choices on offer and offer suggestions for us.
We settled on a tasting plate for entrees and mains consisting of Phad Thai Mixed Seafood and Pineapple Curry with prawns.
Food delicious, service terific, ambience fabulous - and the bill - a pleasant surprise.
If you are after an exclusive 5 star Thai restaurant , then this is not the place to go. But if you are looking for an "honest and refreshing" night out, seated on an odd assortment of chairs/tables, mismatched table settings, plentiful water and BYO drinks, delicious food and generous advice then this place is hard to go past.

“Fresh tasty food with a diverse menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

Enjoyed a great meal here in this homely little cafe tucked away in a corner of the car park. Ordered Taro spring rolls, duck with mint yoghurt and curry puffs which all arrived quickly and tasted very fresh and delicious. For mains we had organic brown rice to accompany Pineapple curry with prawns, pad Thai chicken and Basil and Chilli stir fry. We ordered the stir fry Aussie hot and this nearly blew our heads off even though we are used to fairly hot food. You can specify Thai hot so that must be super hot! All meals were obviously freshly prepared and tasted great. Recommend the pineapple curry as the favourite. This is a great little place and deserves to do well.
