The service is excellent and the food is really good. Dining indoors or out, you'll find the staff attentive and pleasant. The food is genuine Thai and very good.

We craved Thai food and tried SIAM for dinner. The sweet n sour chicken and Pad Thai noodles were fresh and delicious. Small confusion on order was fixed immediately!

Siam has a great dining atmosphere with indoor or outdoor dining. Definitely choose outdoor to sit in the Pagoda overlooking the main street action. The food is good and they offer the local beer that is brewed just down the street. Worth a visit.

Pad Thai is amazing! Love the Thai iced tea. Good size portions at a reasonable cost! Street parking or a little lot nearby make it easy to get to.

After having a terrible dinner the evening prior at "Pane e Vino," I suggested to my husband that we go to "SIAM Elephant Thai Restaurant," based on reviews I'd seen on TripAdvisor. Two for Two: food lacked flavor and was salty. This was the first...More
