“NO LONGER IN BUSINESS”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

Poor Siamese has closed it's doors, but Nok's Thai Cuisine has taken over the location. Some of the same principals are involved in the new venture.

“Fabulous, fresh Thai food”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

I just love this restaurant. It is near my home, so that certainly is an important factor for me and my partner. We can walk to it and bring home take-out. There is no booze, which may explain the lack of reviews, and the place is small. The food is just perfect. The owners are proud to offer authentic cuisine. There is a vast menu. Everything is fresh and plentiful. This restaurant is off the beaten path for out-of-town visitors, but just a bit. For whomever is reading this review, forget about having Thai beer with your meal for one evening and enjoy what no doubt is the freshest and finest Thai food in town (and there are at least three others in town that are also great).

“Best Thai food ever! You will want it for breakfast too!!!”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

The food is authentic and amazing!!! We were staying in a motel with no utensils so they provided us with metal spoons to be able to scoop the sauces over the rice. Friendly, charming and wonderful people from Thailand!!!

“Excellent Thai food”
Reviewed October 28, 2011

We were excited to hear that Poor Siamese was re-opening in Bellingham. They apparently had been here before moving to Mt. Vernon. We visited the Mt. Vernon location - and it was closed! So when we read that they had returned to Bellingham, we had to try it out. We ate there for lunch (beware early diners - opens at noon on weekends) and were extremely pleased with the service, the food, and the prices. It is in a somewhat out of the way location, but worth searching out. The decor is pleasant, but nothing spectacular. This is a restaurant for people who value the taste of the food more than the atmosphere. We've been twice now, and we are sure to be back.
