“Very tasty Thai restaurant in Beijing”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

We came to this restaurant as per excellent recommendations of our local friends... When we were served the food we understood why all tables around were occupied... the quality and taste of the food were excellent!

we tried rice in pineapple, spicy fish soup and "vermicelly" with shrimps... all were prepared with care and were really very tasty.

the restaurant has very good administrator who understands English well, so we would recommend you to ask him to take your order... or course if you are not proficient in Chinese;))

we also liked the cups in which Chinese beer was served - Elephant-style cups were really perfect!

highly recommend this restaurant and advise to ask different dish every time, because we believe they have a lot of interesting things to explore!

“excellent food, mediocre service”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

the food is really delicouis. I mean every dish that we had during the four visits, so far, have been superb.
BUT if you happen to come at a bussy time, like saturday evening, the service could be better,
A tad unfriendly, uninteressted and slow on taking the order.
This didn´t happen during the week, when it was a bit slower in the restaurant.

It is, in my opinion, the best restaurant to eat thai food. Besides, on a warm night, you can sit on the rooftop tarrace

“The best might be a little too high but the food was good.”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

We went based on TA reviews. I will say its authentic but some dishes better than others. The Thai sausages were the best the salads good though swimming in liquid. The red duck curry was chewy and more vegetables than meat. Not quite value for money at 200rmb for lunch. The service adequate. The rooftop pleasant. But the sparrows eating the uncovered rice which was then served to guests was off putting. The rooftop decor however has seen better days. Worn and run and falling to bits like most building works in China. Broken toilet seats, cracked tiles. I would probably check out a few others before I go rushing back but maybe just or the sausages!

“Good Thai food, relaxing atmosphere at roof top terrace”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

Very Siam, located cozily in a local "community", offers good Thai food in a warm, well-decorated atmosphere. Even on Sunday a Thai chef was on duty and the Thai manager took our order. For lunch we had a nice selection of dishes including sweet and sour beef, tasty papaya salad, fish cakes (bit too oily) and spicy green chicken curry! My friends loved the steamed fish! Be sure to request less spicy if you are not up for that!
After lunch we moved up to the roof top terrace and surely this is a very relaxing spot to relax the day away. quiet and away from the busy city noises and entertained by well-choses lounge-y music.
Will definitely return!

“Best Thai in Beijing”
Reviewed August 1, 2011

The Very Siam (Fei Chang Thai) is tucked down a little lane across from a non-descript hotel just north of the second embassy district in Beijing, but after finding it (which takes some effort) you won't go to any other Thai restaurant in Beijing. It is simply the best. Have the Tom Ka Gai soup and the Thai seafood salad, plus any of the curries. All are authentic and have just the right balance of sweet, sour and spice. They also get the sweet milk tea proportions perfectly. Mango sticky rice to finish it off completes the ideal meal. Make a reservation, though, as it is not large and you may need to wait otherwise.
