“Too hot to eat ”
Review of House of Siam

Unusual high temperatures resulted in a a very hot restaurant despite loads of fans. The food was very nice and reasonably priced. The green curry was very nice as was the weeping tiger. Staff were attentive and the drinks were a reasonable price for a restaurant of this type. Would recommend a visit but when the local temperature drops below 30 degrees!

Small quaint restaurant, simple in style. Tables are close to each other so sitting at your table can be quite the squeeze to get in and your most likely to disturb the person behind you while doing so! (I'm an average size person and struggle).

The service:
We ordered prawn crackers and they never arrived but they charged us for them. They got one of our starters wrong leaving one person to eat alone. Fresh cutlery for the mains came much later than the mains. No urgency about the waiter who assisted 2 others tables first. There was no check on the table or asked if more drinks were required a missed opportunity for an upsell.
Many tables around us waiting too long for their bill so we decided just to go to the bar to pay instead. The crackers were taken off but no apology was given. They didn't ask if everything else was ok either. Staff come across, young, shy and timid they need to have an experienced front of house member of the team on the floor to manage.

The food:
Great portion sizes, fresh and full of flavour.

I'd get take out next time.

SO SORRY ... we have been very busy and staff absenteeism has hit us very hard during the hot spell .
The Chefs have managed to maintain our quality however & this is a positive .
We are making future plans to add more Thai staff to cover these unpredictable periods of absenteeism that temporarily we have been unable to recover from .

A friend recommended this restaurant to us, after searching for it on google it said closed wednesdays, which was when we were planning on visiting. We looked at another Thai restaurant in the area and on the way there we saw that House of Siam was open!

The restaurant was pretty full, and we had to wait about 5 minutes for a couple to leave and get our table set up. (I took this as a good sign)

We had vegetable spring rolls to start, chicken satay skewers and hot & sour creamy mushroom soup.

Thai green curry with coconut rice to share as a main.

All the food was absolutely delicious, no faults what so ever.

Staff super friendly and happy. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Spotted this Thai restaurant during the day and decided must visit in the evening.
Lovely decor. Good service.

Would try booking so you don’t miss out.

We were surprised how good the food was. Had one of the set menus. The sharing platter was fabulous albeit the squid was tough . This was the only criticism of all the food we ate. The flavours were amazing . It was very busy and more front of house staff were needed. We waited ages to pay and leave and people were queueing for tables. I would definitely return.
