Mixed feelings,overall wont go back considering competition. My fiance' and I came to this restuarant after reading the reviews. She graduated from UM so she's been here before (although its been a few years). We've been to countless Thai restuarants, so we know what to expect from a quality Thai restuarant. We ordered the Coconut shrimp and Tom Kha Gai soup (coconut milk based soup with lemon grass) The coconut shrimp was very tasty although the shrimp were on the average size. The breading and coconut made them look bigger than they were. The Tom Kha Gai soup was very savory and had us excited about the Pad See ewe and Pad Thai we had ordered for the main dishes. When the waiter brought out the Pad See Ewe, we thought we had received someone elses order. The noodles were thin like the Pad Thais (they're supposed to be thick), the 5 pieces of broccoli was the type you get at publix (not the Chinese broccoli its supposed to come with) and the flavor was lacking. The Pad thai was average and lacked sprouts, cilantro, and lime. After that debacle, we decided to order the Thai Donuts which brought our spirits up a couple notches. All in all, I've got mixed feeling about Siam Lotus. The staff was courteous and attentive and they were even kind enough to delete the Pad see Ewweee from the bill. The only downfall were the main noodle dishes, which should be the backbone of a Thai restuarant. There are other restuarants in the neighboorhod that rival Siam Lotus' main dishes...
Good but not exceptional. My wife and I ate at Siam Lotus Room late last night, Sunday. It was quiet. We ordered two salads, one mixed satay, pad see ewe and ka pow (a basil dish). The salads were excellent with very fresh ingredients and a delicious ginger dressing. The mixed chicken and beef satay was as ordinary as it gets. The pad see ewe with chicken was quite tasty and rates very good. The ka pow was ok and not better. We ate here last year and remember the food as being a little better. Overall, a solid, decent meal, but not exceptional. If you want exceptional, visit Ayara Thai Cuisine near the airport in LA.
Excellent food, good prices, love the aquarium :-). This is one of those places that on first impression from outside may seem a bit iffy. It's a very plain and ordinary green building... Still, once you step inside, sit down and take the first bite of their food... the whole thing changes. My wife and I love this place when we really want to eat some amazing Thai food. I also took several of my co-workers to eat there and their first impression from outside was that I'd taken them to a dive place but once they ate there - they couldn't stop raving about how good the food was. I recommend that you sit by the aquarium in the back, it's simply beautiful and the fish are really friendly :-)
Authentic Thai? Not So Much!.
I headed to Siam Lotus for dinner one night after reading the rave reviews posted on City Search, and I was disappointed:
1. The hostess said that the waiting time was around 15-20 minutes, but I didn't get seated until 45 minutes later.
2. The server was far from being attentive. She took the order without writing it down and didn't get the order right. She was too busy attending to the table next to mine that she forgot about me.
3. The food was below average: far from being authentic Thai and bland. The tom yum soup tasted heavily of fish sauce and nothing else, while the eggplant dish was swimming in oil.
4. The cook didn't make the noodle dish spicy as ordered. When the server took the noodle dish back to the kitchen, the cook deliberately made the dish too spicy to eat (it was as if he dumped the entire chili powder on it).
5. Siam Lotus Thai Restaurant is terribly overpriced considering the quality of food and service.
I was, however, pleased with the busboy. He always walked around asking if people needed extra rice and refilling your drink.
Top of its game!.
I've spent 2 months traveling through Thailand and I've eaten in many thai restaurants in the US and Canada and I have to say that I was very pleased with quality and quantity of the food at the Siam Lotus. The plates were generous and the flavors truly authentic. They also have speciality items that you won't find in most thai restaurants like Miam Kam.
I would also like to mention the top notch service which is friendly and relaxed giving it a family oriented appeal.
If you crave Thai in Miami, this place won't disappoint!
Best Thai food in Miami. I love Thai food and this was some of the best Thai food I've ever had (and I've been to Thailand), definitely the best I've had in Miami. The restaurant is elegantly appointed, the service was great and every dish was outstanding. My main course was the Massaman Beef Curry and I'm longing to go back for more. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Delightful Dining. Our visit to the Siam Lotus Room was lovely in every way. My husband and I seek out restaurants that offer beautifully prepared foods, extensive wine lists, and attentive service. We found all of that and more at the Siam Lotus Room. The Thai food is exquisite and the prices are reasonable. Enjoy, we did!
Thai seasfood dishes are unparalleled and the wine list is second to no other Thai restaurant!.
Bar non the best Thai food I have ever had! I have been to the Siam Lotus Room for a romantic dinner for two, with my two year old daughter and for our wedding reception. In each instance the service, food and ambience were exceptional. When we visit Miami the Siam Lotus Room is always at the top of our dining list. Usually more than once!!

Great food and customer service, great location. Lived in Miami for 20 years, and by far some of the best meals our family has had, have been at Siam Lotus, with Atchana and her fine staff. Whether for an amazing lunch special or a Friday night dinner, you can't go wrong with Siam Lotus. We love the Yellow Curry Chicken and my kids insist on the Thai Coconut Soup, which is to die for. It's a large restaurant with plenty of parking, and a great looking fish tank. I could go on, but if you are looking for great Thai food in the South Miami area, look no where else.
the best Thai food in Miami!. Siam Lotus has it all -- an extensive mouth-watering menu, lovely setting, excellent attentive service, delightful, caring, and committed owners, and truly the best Thai food in Miami, if not South Florida. I've been coming there for years, and travel happily from Fort Lauderdale just to savor an evening of delectable cuisine, with more-than-ample servings and a superb vegetarian selection... and no problem substituting tofu and other preferred changes whenever asked. I've yet to have anything less than perfect -- mega-applause and kudos to Atchana and Steve!
