Wisconsonite misses Thai Siam

I lived in Ballard with my husband for 20+ years, and this was our favorite neighborhood restaurant. I miss the shiny, spicy, Cashew Chicken on their lunch menu, and something as pedestrian as Pad Thai was the best I have ever had (in my dotage, I've been to Thailand, so high praise). Too, these are great, generous people - dinners for charity every year. Just the greatest place and people. Appreciate them.

I make everyone I know go here...

The first time I went to the restaurant I didn't speak the entire meal, it was that good. Their ingredients are FRESH. Everything there is delicious. The dishes I always get are Autumn in my Heart (potatoes and squash in turmeric curry sauce) and their Green Papaya Salad. Happy Boat, featuring shrimp, squid and green peppers, is another frequent choice, but even at the two-star approach is way hotter than you might expect. Like another reviewer put it, the cooks at this place are not afraid of the peppers, so be cautious when ordering! If you don't like it spicy, you better get it 1 star or less. The service is excellent, the food comes quick and is always pretty. Order take-out, they will shock you with their speed.

Go now!

Thai food done right. Even a pedestrian dish like phad thai makes me drool when I think about it coming from Thai Siam. Not afraid of the pepper either.

The best Thai in all of seattle!

This is the best thai i have ever eaten. Nothing compares to it. The garlic chicken is the best but it is much better if you get at least 2 and a half stars. I always get the special green beans and Some times the top of the world beef. The fried rice is yummy too! Ooooh and try there tropical thai iced tea. The service is also great I have been going there for years and they have always been very friendly. I have never in all the years i have been going there had a problem with the food or service.
