AMAZING! WONDERFUL! DELIGHTFUL! – This place is wonderful. the food is fabulous and prepared with the freshest ingredients. The staff is amazing and VERY attentive! Everyone works for your satisfaction. The owners are AMAZING! Erica, Miami, Forida.
Every customer becomes a "regular." Consistently excellent food, service and atmosphere. – A lovely family-owned authentic Thai restaurant. Food is to die for - including a large array of vegetarian dishes, seafood, and the usual Thai fare (ranging from wimpy mild to masochistic spicy), all prepared perfectly. Don't miss the whole ginger snapper or the Tom Kar Gai soup. Beautiful romantic atmosphere for couples, and a huge salt-water fish tank to entertain children. Great wine list too.
Best lobster thai ever, excellent customer service, surprising wine and imported beer list – Cozy restaurant embracing romance and comfort at the same time. Excellent seafood dishes cooked to perfection with 5 star sauces. Variety of dishes for every taste expectation. Family owned restaurant with obvious investment in customer service, excellent food, and spirit availability. If I lived in Miami I would be hard pressed not to visit this restaurant on a regular basis if not nightly. Lobster dishes are exquisite. Can not wait to return!
Best Thai restaurant in Miami Dade!! – We love Thai food and when we moved to Miami we tried several restaurants until we found the best one of all, SIAM LOTUS ROOM!!! Lovely atmosphere, excellent service and presentation, incredibly affordable prices, intriguing wine list, and great, great food! Superb Pad Thai and the most tatsteful Panang ever. But don?t be afraid to head into new territory. From start to finish your meal will always be that perfect combination of tingly hot and flavorful. Definitely a must-go-to restaurant!
Superb house recipes, friendly atmosphere – This family-run Thai restaurant is a true gem in South Miami. Siam Lotus stands out like a giant green thumb just off US1 - you won't want to miss it. Prices are moderate for a selection of house specialties that are varied and sumptuous. From the colorful exotic fish tank to the abundant bamboo, Siam Lotus owners have done a fine job in creating a decor that is both comfortable and tasteful. Wine lovers will appreciate the excellent selection both by the glass and bottle. Top off your meal with the classic "thai donuts."
I don't leave Miami without a visit! – Asian restaurants usually are 4th (or 5th) on my lists of 'must go' restaurants, but the Green Thai restaurant is an exception. It is one of my all time favorites and I never leave the greater Miami area without a trip to this restaurant. I have yet to receive an order that wasn't prepared and presented superbly. Things that are supposed to be hot arrive at the table hot. Things that are supposed to be cool or cold arrive at the table cool or cold. The environment is comfortable and the smells are marvelous!
Every time I visit I'm greeted with smiles that make me feel like an old friend. Did I mention that they have a great wine list? Great food, great beverage, feel like an old friend and still have money left over - don't even think about it - just go!!!
Consistently delicious Thai food and gracious service – The Siam Lotus Room has long been a favorite of this family. The food is authentic, delicious and affordable. The restaurant is family-owned and it shows in the pride and care the service staff take with each guest. The experience at Siam Lotus Room is consistently pleasant and is perfect for all sorts of occassions - first date, early dinner with a toddler, late dinner after a movie, and more. The vibe is chill, the food is fantastic, the people are wonderful and your meal won't break the bank. Two thumbs up.
Best thai food around! – I read that supercritical review about horrible dining experience and had to wonder if it was some other restaurant somewhere in the Twilight Zone!! I certainly WAS NOT the Siam Lotus that I have eaten at many times. It is my teenagers FAVORITE restaurant and she is PICKY, picky. She squeals with delight when she hears we are going. The food is fresh, none of those gamey shrimp you get at some places. The portions are generous and as spicy as you want. I am Jamaican (home of hell-hot chicken) so I know spicy when I taste it! I have always gotten as much rice as I want and they make changes to orders (I love carrots and they add it to my main course WITHOUT charging me more).
PLUS, come on now, the prices are reasonable, even for this single parent. You can of course go to South Beach/Miami Beach, pay more and get less tasty food. I have been to two places there that purport to sell Thai food, please!! As for the double wide trailer jab, how petty can you get? Not for one minute did I feel like I was in a trailer. I am sure they are not perfect and I think the owner would appreciate hearing your comments when you are there. I always see her going around to the diners making conversation so she seems very accessible. I rate Siam Lotus a GREAT dining experience, as have the several friends and family I have recommended it to.
Who needs atmosphere when you've got tasty Thai at great prices? – In Short
It may not be much to look at, but this ramshackle lime-green box on South Dixie Highway is home to some of the best Thai food in the city. Thai food lovers flock here because portions are big and prices are low. Spring rolls are delectably crisp and incredibly fresh. Peanut dusted pad thai is tangy and moist. A lunch hour special of crispy duck is covered in a smoky hoisin sauce full of pineapple chunks, baby corn and earthy slivers of black mushrooms.
Poor service; dinner in a double-wide trailer – Horrible dining experince. The dining room, which appears to be a converted double-wide trailer, was half full when we came in for dinner. For such a location, the menu was certainly fully priced.
It took a while for the waiter to take our order. The appetizers came after about 30 minutes. Then, we had to wait for about 45 minutes for the main course. The wait was so long that we had to request the hostess twice to check with the kitchen as our waitress was not responsive and sulky. When the food finally came, the waitress literally slam the dishes on the table.
The food was bland, not spicy at all. The waitress came with a silver rice pot and offered us a little scoop of rice each. Never came back to see if we needed a little more. Never came back to ask about the food. In fact, I had to ask the bus boy for another bottle of beer.
Worst dining experience ever. Never ever coming back to this place and definitely not recommended.
