“Pretty bad”
Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

This was probably some if the worst pad thai chicken I have ever had . Sauceless, tasteless, and generally not worth the wait for the delivery man or the $$$.

“What a find!”
Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

We were driving around Rivhmond on a visit looking for a place to have dinner. We started with Curry roll and fried tofu which
Almost filled us up. Our main course was Chicken cashew nut and Lardna Talay which was stir fry with shrimp and scallops. For dessert we split a cheesecake which was as good as you get in New York. The portions are all ample and the service was extremely good. Excellent atmosphere. Great choice!

“Mom Siam - Thai just like mom used to make!”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

While visiting a friend in Richmond we had lunch at Mom Siam, in Carytown. It's a funky little place with hip decor and good looking, friendly and efficient service staff. My friend is a regular and one of the owners stopped by the table to say hi. There really is a mom in the kitchen most days and you can tell. I had the fried calamari and Tom Yum soup and it was a lunch to remember. The calamari was light as a feather and the soup was seasoned just right. My friend had the shrimp, her "usual" because it's so bleeping good.

“Sad to say.....”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

Sad to say... I did not enjoy the take-out from Mom Siam. Old reviews gave this place glowing marks. But I should have heeded the recent reviews on yelp. Instead we ordered and received:
Pad Thai Chix spicy - bland, dry, not much sauce, not spicy hot)
Duck salad - tasted gamey
Satay Chicken - DRY DRY DRY overcooked chicken on a skewer with sauce on the side
Pad Se-ew Tofu - flat rice noodles were huge, puffy, & gummy

Definite money waster... shame on me for not listening to yelp!
