“Excellent meal in a scenic location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

We sat at an outisde table so we could take in the view while we ate. The food was excellent and very tasty, and the service was great. Highly recommend this restaurant if you like Thai food.

“Really bad Thai food!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

I went here with my adult daughter for a recent lunch special that was being offered for about $10. We both chose the Pad Thai and were thoroughly disappointed in both the taste and presentation.It appeared to be all noodles with very little meat,strange tasting sauce and no garnish.
I live close to 4 Thai restaurants in my neighborhood and this Thai restaurant wasn't even close to good Thai food.

“very good thai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

We often travel through Kaikoura and debate where we will dine, a couple of really good options in Kaikoura, and so we often chose the Thai Siam as we really enjoy their good food, very reasonable prices and fast attention to diners, as we are travelling and not stopping the night, these guys cover it all. I usually order the same meal there, as I know its gonna be so good, and my other half will be a bit more adventurous and try different dishes on their good menu selection.

“Not spicy enough, herbs weren't enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

Guess they need to suit western guests' taste, so the Thai food wasn't that spicy but sweet. Also those herbs that were supposed to be added in the dishes were missing, so it wasn't that authentic.

They put quite a lot ingredients into each dish which is good. The Lamb shank which the staff recommended was not hot, only the sauce was hot.
