Thai food has an extraordinary flavor and relies on fresh ingredients. Som Siam lacks in both. E had lunch and every dish comes with a salad which it shouldn't be served. There are couple of leafs of salad smothered in a very thick, very sweet peanut sauce. Salads should sort of enhance your appetite and make you wanting to eat... More

Love this place, fresh bright flavors, spicy if you want (yes please). Great service and my husband and I love the Scorpion Bowl!

We especially enjoyed the prepared-to-order dishes, including the Emerald Plate (lots of veggies and peanut sauce) and the drunken spaghetti. The service was friendly and the spiciness of the food suited each dish.

The lunch menu, which was adequate but nothing very memorable. Very empty, so makes the place quite cold. Wish they had a warmer vibe about the place, may help.

This place is outstanding! I had the green curry with chicken, it is so yummy! My best friend had the Pad Thai, and she said it was the best she has ever had from any restaurant. Don't let the odd location (off the road and next to a miniature golf course) fool you into not stopping. This is top notch... More

I love the food here. I almost always get the curry chicken, and it always outstanding. My husband had the pad tai and it was also aw some. The service was great. My only critique is that the bathroom needed a good cleaning. I hope this was a one time thing. These are the kind of details that should not... More

One of the better pad Thai that I have had. The green curry was amazing. Nice decor and surprisingly large interior. Good service and I will definitely return

With a sleeping preschooler in the car, I called in an order of beef satay and fresh (uncooked) spring rolls for dinner and waited in the car the 20 minutes I was told it would take. Carried sleepy princess in and was grateful for the sitting area and fish near the register while we continued to wait. Portions were skimpy... More

It has been about a year since we last ate here. Was concerned when I saw a review that said it took a long time to be served. But we were waited on as soon as we sat down. Appetizers came almost instantly. Main course was also served quickly. Food was delicious. Staff was friendly. Menus could use some updating.... More
