Basil duck, chicken curry, their rare and tasty catfish salad--all done up nicely and served with a classic Thai smile. No liquor license these days, but no problem: there's a liquor store a couple of doors down. The waitress hesitated when we said we wanted things served extra-spicy, but obliged. And things were Extra Spicy. But delicious.

I have been enjoying the food from here for over 10 years. A friend lives nearby and we have frequently ordered from here. We tend not to stray too far from our favorites, only adding as we add guests to join us. This is a mom and pop Thai restaurant, no fancy cooking, no fancy garnishes and yes the restaurant is tattered at the edges but not dirty.
What to order: Spring rolls (different than some but good avocado and cucumber wrapped in goodness, two large pieces sliced in 6 pieces each. Chicken pot stickers are always included. Beef salad, so perfect and ask for it spicy goodness,my fav. Green chicken curry is heaven. Then if you buy $30 (two appz, two entrees) they include 3 egg rolls for free. It is truly a bargain in the neighborhood. Order for pick up and enjoy a meal that night and plenty of left overs.

True, this restaurant inside might look a bit antiquated and a tad cold, but it's the good that counts... which is what wiped us off our feet. The best tom khar soup ever, along with pork sticks and angel wings, started it off... then we got the seafood noodle deluxe and pad thai, which was outstanding. We finished it off with an ice coffee, which isn't realy a dessert, but was still great, though it was very strange -- so we ended up mixing it with water and making 3 extra iced coffees, lol. Overall, an awesome restaurant... will be back!

Nothing fancy here, just delicious and affordable Thai food and cheap drinks. I don't get terribly adventurous with a Thai menu (spicy basil chicken in my go-to dish!) but I nobody I have dined with there has ever had a complaint either. Well worth a visit.

Tucked into a strip mall along with some other ethnic storefronts, Siam's House does not look at all special. But they do a terrific job on some unusual Thai dishes. So much so that Thai friends rave about the place. Catfish salad is an example: a fish body is pressed flat and fried to a delicate golden brown, open textured, and crunchy state, then layered on top of a spicy salad, with red and green onions and peanuts. Rare and delicious. The green curries and Tom Yum seafood are also tasty. By all means, order the classic Thai stuff; they do those fine, too.
Decor is nothing special. The servers are nice Thai girls, happy to chat if things are slow. The food tends to be prepared extra-spicy if you are with a Thai friend.
