Decent Seattle Thai – This place is in the top tier of Seattle's many, many Thai eateries. Dishes reach your table in what seems like seconds from leaving the fire. The phad thai is of the reddish variety so if you like yours more traditional, ask them to prepare it without ketchup.
An added bonus is the good selection of teas they feature. Try one to sip after your meal for the perfect end to a delicious Thai meal.
Siam on Loch Ness – Although the food was somewhat tasty, portions were grossly inadequate considering the preparation (very simple--nothing stunning or inventive). My friend ordered shrimp pad thai (shrimp $2 extra), and only received 4 SMALL shrimp. I ordered chicken and received less than an ounce of meat. There was a $2 charge for plain white rice (which ought to be complimentary, in my opinion).
Ultimately we paid over $30 (no drinks, and excluding tax and tip) for a lot of noodles, 4 shrimp, 4 thin shreds of chicken, and a little bit of sauce that I imagine came from a big vat in the back. Others have raved about the large portions here, and they were indeed large, but only because of plain flat noodles and plain white rice, which I consider inferior goods.
Service was abysmal. After taking our order, our waiter never returned except to give us the bill.
Yep, it's good – I live just around the corner from Siam Lk Union and I eat there frequently. I've never had a dish I didn't like. Fresh, flavorful, and blow your head off spicy if you like. If you get take out stop by the bar for a drink and a game on the big screen. It's authentic, it's good, and it's affordable. Eat it!
Superior Siam – The best Thai in Seattle, hands down. Every menu item is fabulous. The curries are oustanding. The service is always excellent.
The Best – Great location, plenty of parking, and the food is awesome!
