The quality and authenticity of the food at Star of Siam really is five star -- as good as it gets. And, the value is superb -- most entrees in the $7 range -- really great value. Portions are large. Star of Siam is very popular -- always busy even though it is a bit tricky to find (on the lower section of Illinois Street near State, two blocks from where Illinois runs under North Michigan Avenue).
The one shortcoming is very neutral, rather unwelcoming service -- few smiles, staff not very friendly. The problem seems to be that Star of Siam (like so many Asian restaurants) works their staff really hard, so the work environment is not conducive to really friendly service. Please don't get me wrong. The service is not unfriendly nor bad. It is just not friendly -- could be a lot better.
