“poor service but awesome food..”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Well only thing I can say about food is that it is awesome. It is also worth the price you pay and quantity is also very good. I specially fell in love with the sweet corn soup. Good atmosphere and outdoor seating is available. What makes this place average is the service. It's really terrible. It's really hard to get the attention let on place the order.
But I recommend this place because of the quality of the food. Furthermore currently they have 30% off for AMEX holders on Mondays. I think they have it until mid April 2013.

“A little Thailand in Sri Lanka”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We discovered this restaurant tucked away in a quiet area of Colombo. Staff were friendly and very helpful offering excellent service to complement their great food. They will make the food as spicy or as mild as you like so let the staff know what you would prefer. A perfect night out.

“Two great experiences...”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

I wound up eating here twice on my recent visit to Colombo. Both times we enjoyed great service and food in a well set up restaurant. Service and value both excellent - so don't hesitate to give it a go! YMMV

“Colonial Thai”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Well hidden in the southern part of Colombo, half a block off the coastal road, Siam House emerges as a quiet colonial palace, where service is efficient and food offers what your eyes might crave for.

The area is pleasantly laid back, and no noise is given a chance to break the atmosphere. We chose to sit on the eclosed balcony, which gives a chance to rest your eyes on the tropic forecourt.

Service is attentive, and staff observant for your sensitivity to degrees of spicyness. We chose seafood and fish in combination with rice, and were given a delightful evening. Be careful not to overestimate your courage when it comes to hot Thai food. When they tell you the food is hot, then it is HOT.

“Wonderful Thai”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

On our trip to Colombo in July 2012, my friends suggested Thai food which my family and I love! Siam House had exceptionally fabulous food. Service was very good, but the quality of the food was priceless. Itwas so good that I haven't enjoyed Thai food this good evenin Thailand :) Highly recommed the Shelled Thai Crab dish :)
