Ottawa has several good Thai restaurants, but this one is the tastiest. The food is consistently good and has a high level of authenticity. The staff are hit and miss - sometimes friendly and present, but other times they seem rushed/stressed/distracted. Price is fair for Ottawa. Their takeout menu is great.

The Pad Thai is excellent and my favourite...but whatever I order I've never had a bad meal there. It's not a big restaurant, so make reservations to be sure to get a seat, especially later in the week.

It you don't have time to properly serve people, please don't let them in - my time, money and humanity are just as important as others. We arrived at 8:30 pm Labour Day Eve and were rushed out not even an hour after. First don't expect to order your drinks first. Since no attention was given to us, and we... More

My boyfriend and I were craving for Thai and came to the right place. The shrimp and coconut milk soup was delicious with its wonderful fragrance of lemongrass and corriander. The curries we ordered were amazingly good but be advised that if you are a chilihead and order your meal with a certain degree of spicyness, very hot is very,... More

We've eaten here several times over the past year, at least two or three dinners and at least two lunches. Never fails to disappoint, but never say never. The only time we were disappointed was the taken out lunch - it seemed to be all noodle, no to little good stuff. That's a lesson learned - eat in a this... More

Still the same as always. Excellent food, service, value. If you are in Ottawa you must go. The food is well prepared, and served with elegance.

It had been years since we'd gone to Siam Bistro, more because we had forgotten about it and it was a bit more of a drive to get there. But we found ourselves in the neighborhood around dinner and thought why not. After the meal we looked at each other and said, why did we stop coming here? And to... More

If you plan to go, you must book ahead. We didn't, and showed up early, at 6.00pm. We were told that we could stay provided that we leave at 7.00 because the table was already reserved. Eager to let us in, but we found out that the waitress didn't want us to pick from the menu: we could eat pad... More

This is my favourite Thai restaurant in Ottawa. The food is always amazing and good service. It's very popular so you need to make reservations.

I went to the Siam Bistro with a friend on a Friday night. The food was really tasty, the price very reasonable. One of our best Thai restaurants in Ottawa.
