The food here is spectacular. We won't eat Thai food anywhere else in Ann Arbor. We have been going at least once a month for years. Favorites include the Siam rolls (like spring rolls) which you can get vegie style or with shrimp. I like the shrimp version even better. We always order #56 -- the shrimp with chili paste and #57 -- chicken with roasted cashews (you could substitute tofu). What sets this restaurant apart from others in Ann Arbor are details like actually roasting the cashews. I don't know how they do the sauce for the shrimp with chili paste, but it's extraordinary. Another winner is #62: shrimp in a sweet chili sauce with finely shredded bamboo shoots. The regular Pad Thai is also not to be missed. Don't bother to spend the extra $5 for the super Pad Thai. Other winners include Hum Beef (a salad of marinated flank steak), sizzling beef (although the beef is a bit tough) I enjoy the curries -- I don't find them better than other places, but certainly as good. Service can be spotty. Sometimes the waiters are rude. One night there was a misunderstanding about our order, and I had to insist on speaking to the manager before they grudgingly agreed to bring us the dish that I thought we had ordered. Since then, we make a habit of confirming every dish as we order. So don't go for the atmosphere or to chat up the wait staff. Just go because the food is fabulous. By the way, this restaurant is now called The Old Siam by Siam Kitchen. Always double-check to make sure that they are open. Hours are more limited during the summer. Also, because this is a family-run business, they close down when they take vacation.
