The food is super authentic if you ask for Thai style if not it will be made according to the local taste. The service are always great as the staff are cheerful and attentive. They are busy on most nights so made your booking before hand.

We as a family of five had to go to this restaurant on Easter Monday as there was no choice. I am not complaining about the food. Food quality was OK except pepper lamb dish was very salty and so we could not finish it.Serves are very small for the price. We had to attract the owner for service as... More

We apologies for the salty lamb black pepper, you could have let our staff know and I am sure that it will be dealt with straight away. We have already made sure that our chef take note of that point. For price, you 1st need to understand that the ingredients that we have imported in, are not common in this... More

Went here for dinner with my boyfriend. The food was yummy - we had the money bags and the red curry with beef. We thought the portion size for the curry and the rice were pretty small. And overall we thought the food was overpriced for what you got.

After travelling all day we needed something to eat that was special and after satay end chicken skewers we had the chefs special seafood stir fry on a sizzling hot platter. It was excellent and filling. We enjoyed a banana fritter to round off as good a Thai meal as we have experienced. Well done to the Star of Siam.... More

This restaurant has been around for many, many years and still manages to keep up its good looks. All very Thai inside. Lovely food. Can't fault it. Well, just one thing! There is no BYO.

I have been coming to Star of Siam for over 2 years. I have brought numerous friends and colleagues for dinner over that time, with not one disappointing meal. It's fresh, the flavours are amazing and it's true Thai at its best. My favourite is all chicken pad Thai, but I can say I have tried over 10 of the... More

We visited on a fairly busy Friday night. The service was helpful and prompt. The restaurant was busy and full of local people with a pleasant atmosphere. It had rather old fashioned decor and the tables were spaced in a way that allowed private conversation. The food was truly splendid with really well rounded flavours and generous portions making it... More
