Square Meal Review of @Siam ?

Given a few days’ notice, the chef at this otherwise unremarkable canteen will prepare a northern feast, replete with dishes from his native Chiang Mai, while Thai expats can request pretty much anything they fancy. Without this advice from @Siam’s effervescent owner, visitors won’t find anything to challenge similar eateries in Soho. Starters of satay chicken & assorted deep-fried spring rolls are fine, while mains such as lamb kae pad prik & salmon chu chee pla are enjoyable but deliberately ersatz. Hopefully, the keen pricing (only the most luxurious seafood dishes nudge over £12), the seductive silk upholstery & the mirrorball Buddha at the bottom of the stairs will bring this young contender plenty of customers.

  1. Gai Sa-tay - Chicken Satay Gai Sa-tay – Chicken Satay with peanut dip My friend ordered gai sa-tay which is the popular Thai starter; chicken satay. The chicken was still moist and had a lovely sweet taste and the peanut dip was sweet and rich. I was actually quite surprised at the portion sizes which were incredibly generous. Kor Moo Yang Kor Moo Yang – marinated pork with spicy tamarind sauce My starter of choice was kor moo yang or grilled marinated pork which was served with a spicy tamarind sauce. Again the portions were generous and I think this was a serving size for two rather than one. Nevertheless I still managed to eat it all. The pork was cooked well and was succulent, a little sweet with a slight sticky texture. Moo Tod Kra Taem Prik Thai Moo Tod Kra Taem Prik Thai My friend opted for a stir fry dish named moo tod kra taem prik thai, which essentially is stir fried pork in a garlic and pepper sauce. Delicious helpings of juicy pork that had a good balance of flavours. Although the dish tasted good it’s a little uninspiring compared to the other dishes we tasted. Steamed Jasmine White and Brown Rice Steamed Jasmine White and Brown Rice Gang Phed Ped Yang Gang Phed Ped Yang I had to satisfy my terrible craving for Thai curry and opted for a dish I wouldn’t find on a takeaway menu; gang phed ped yang is marinated duck breast in a Thai red curry sauce with lychee, pineapple and grapes. Again with the portion sizes, this was also a generous size. What I loved about the curry was the sweetness from the lychees, grapes and pineapple but seemed to balance well with the red curry sauce which was rich, filling and had a slight kick. Duck was still moist giving you a meaty texture and flavour and all in all this was delicious. A slight niggle I had was that I asked for my curry extra spicy. I was then questioned by our server, whether I was sure I wanted it spicy. Was this actually going to be too hot for me to handle? Now when the curry came, the curry was not at all spicy, not to my standards anyway. It had a slight kick but could have done with a lot more heat which was slightly frustrating. Maybe this was because they thought I wouldn’t be able to handle the heat. I guess I’ll never know.. Although the food was delicious, the service was a let-down. The beautiful modern interior was matched with a cold un-inviting service. Maybe they were just having a bad day, but it’s not right when a restaurant makes the diner feel a little awkward. Apart from the service, @Siam managed to deliver and satisfy my craving. If you want to eat delicious, authentic Thai cuisine in the heart of London, then look no further. - @Siam, Soho @Siam on Urbanspoon Square Meal Share this: Like this: Tags: Thai Leave a Reply ← Halloumi, Chickpea & Tomato Salad SUBSCRIBE TO BLOG ABOUT ME Tahira D.
