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

I have been to this place three times and all have been a little different. The first time my sister and I eat here and dined in which was such a lovely experience. I forgot what we ordered but it was great so I went back and did Take Out. I went with my cousin this time and ordered Fresh... 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

If they want to be a restaurant or a take-out place... We've come here pretty regularly over the years and have noticed a real drop since Linda opened her third location. Yesterday we felt very sorry for our server, who acted as hostess, server, phone wrangler, cashier and take-out window. The problem was with the kitchen. Though there were at... More

Decent food, reasonable prices, below average decor. Small restaurant, we went without reservations and were seated on the side out of the small main dining room. The area was very cold and even when asked for heat it stayed cold. Wonton soup was very good, loaded with fresh vegetables. "Drunken spaghetti" special was favorable, served with shrimp but somewhat meager... More

Som Siam serves ok Thai food--not terribly authentic, not super delicious, but just ok. There are much better Thai restaurants around, but this is perfectly acceptable.

Disappointed by lack of vegetarian options in appetizers as well as main dishes. And the only veggie App was greasy and bland.. Even the carnivores in our group were disappointed /underwhelmed by their chicken satay app. For our main course we all ordered 'Drunken Spaghetti'. This was pan fried noodles, veggies and your choice of chicken , tofu or beef.... More
