“Terrible Attitude”
Reviewed February 10, 2010

There are many great restaurants in Telluride so it should be no problem to avoid this pricey high attitude restaurant. Honga's has similar food quality and a much more pleasant experience.
Siam seems to be the only restaurant in town that does not take reservations. We had a party of six and called ahead to be put on the list. They told us to be there at 745p. We arrived at 750p and our table had been given away. We tried to make a reservation the next day and were told that "We're so busy we dont need to take reservations".
Siam was the only dark spot on a great ski location.

“Great Food, Need to Learn the Restaurant Management”
Reviewed February 4, 2010

Let's get one thing straight - the food at Siam is fantastic. It's one of the best values in Telluride. Everything is very fresh, the entrees and appetizers are delicious, and where else in Telluride can you have a nice dinner for $30 per person (including drinks)? With that said, be forewarned that Siam's restaurant management is severely lacking. The first time we tried to eat there, I called ahead and was told it would be a 45 minute wait. We walked to the restaurant and waited... and waited.. and waited. After an hour and a half of sitting on the porch in 20 degree temperatures (there is limited space inside the restaurant to wait) we left. The excuse was that the kitchen was backed-up. The hostess had my cellphone number and supposedly was going to call me when our table was ready, but we never heard from her (and ended-up eating at 221 -- see my review on that restaurant). Setting this first failed Siam experiment aside, we returned to Siam later in the week, were seated promptly and had a wonderful meal. So, the lesson: Siam is hit or miss. If you are patient, you will have a great meal.

“Pricey...”
Reviewed October 4, 2009

Nice location, Pad Thai was great, but thought it was pricey and staff was way too pretentious! Not sure if I would go back.

“Great Food!”
Reviewed August 29, 2009

WOW! Everything we tried was superb. On a visit from NJ, where we enjoy lots of Thai food, we visited Telluride's Siam. It's off the main drag, but worth the trip (3 blocks!). Aside from the usual Thai fare, the Fusion Menu is wonderful, creative & delicious. I'm not normally a scallop eater, but Siam's were the BEST! We enjoyed it so much that we dined there twice in the 3 days we were there, sampling a variety of items. The atmosphere is fun, it's small, but worth the wait if necessary. I highly recommend Siam.

“Fabulous Food”
Reviewed August 28, 2009

We ate two dinners in succession at this wonderful restaurant. The food was delicious, as well as beautifully presented on the plate. They offer both traditional Thai food as well as a creative fusion variety. We tried both and loved everything we ate. We met the owners who supervised the preparation. They were delightful as well as the wait staff was helpful and made excellent suggestions. When travelling we rarely go to the same place twice, but we couldn't resist this time. We highly recommend Siam Telluride!
