Awesome owner and consistently good service, food – I have been going to this restaurant for six years now and have never been disappointed. The owner, staff in the restaurant and delivery personnel have always been courteous and the service has always been outstanding. My favorites are pad thai, fresh rolls, chili chicken and nua nom thok salad. Whoever wrote the very isolated horrible reviews must be from a competitor because they have nothing to do with the reality I have seen there the last six years. This restaurant is heads above any other thai restaurant in the South End - just try the Pad Thai and you'll agree!
I love this place – I order delivery from this place about 3 times a week to my office in the PRU and have never had to call to ask where is my food. I am a noodles junkie and my favs are Pad Thai and Pad C U and for appetizers I love the Golden bags, crunchy wonton bags with sweet pork and corn, also the Chicken Satay with that amazing peanut sauce, I drown my Pad thai in it, yum. And when I've dined at the restauant its always prompt helpful service, and great food. This place is a winner. I guess my only complaint is waiting to be seated on a busy Friday night, but the 20 minutes was well worth the wait.
Great Food and Fast Delivery – I love this restaurant! From the owners warm greeting to the attentive and friendly wait staff. On our first visit and never having dined Thai before, we asked our waiter for recomendations, he asked if we like spicy, we do but mild.
Lon recomended the Tom Yum Shrimp soup and Chicken Satay to start followed by Chicken Basil and Pad Thai.
It was 8pm and the restaurant wasn't quite full, In about 5 minutes we were served, the marinated chicken satay were large portions with a delicious peanut sauce and the Shrimp soup was perfectly mild and delicious. The Pad Thai sweet noodles were delicious and the ground chicken with onions peppers and fresh basil was perfectly spiced and so tasty. We dine here on the average of twice a week and have tried almost the whole menu and have never been disapointed. And if your a sports nut like me and its playoff time this place has fast delivery. For food, service and delivery I give the House of Siam 5 Stars and well deserved.
Amazing Thai Food – Recently moved to the Southend and have used House of Siam several times. Great food and afordable pricing. Very friendly service. I highly reccomend. Pad Thai and Pad C U is very very yummy.
Great Thai Food/Reasonably Priced – I have had food at the House of Siam a couple of times and it was delicious. While we waited the waiter came over and gave us free appetizers and some tea. Very friendly. Loved the atmosphere. The only bad thing about this place was the parking. Parking was hard to find. Otherwise it was great!!!

WORST SERVICE EVER! – The food is just OK, but the service is the worst EVER!
I have both eaten-in and had delivery from House of Siam, and the service is the worst I have ever experienced! I ordered delivery today (2 orders of pad thai) and when it showed up AN HOUR LATER it was $3 more than what they said it would be. When I asked why it was $3 more the "delivery guy" said, "people here don't tip, so we charge more to come here." (PS: my office is literally three blocks from the restaurant...AND I ALWAYS TIP! ...and I called as soon as they opened @ 11:30)
When I told him that I didn't think there was a delivery charge (see their claims all over the internet "no extra charge for delivery"), the guy said, "I am the owner, you don't tip here, so we charge more, these drivers have to pay gas and you don't tip, gas is very expensive!!!" THIS IS THE OWNER OF THE RESTAURANT yelling at me about other people in my office building not tipping and about drivers having to pay for their own gas? WTF? When I told him that he should be ashamed as the owner to talk to a customer like that about tip money and to charge more than what they said, and that this was all made worse by the fact that this "delivery driver" and the owner are one-in-the-same, he told me that I should be ashamed because I was only giving him a $1 tip!
When I called to complain they confirmed that he was one of the owners and said his name is "Joe Thailand"... and then the guy just kept repeating "yes" after everything I said. How annoying!
I WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN, AND WILL TELL EVERYONE I MEET THE SAME!
There are a lot of good restaurants in Boston where they care about their customers...this is not one of them! Stay away from these rude people!
no good – sorry to be a party pooper but this place is totally over-rated. i had the chicken pad thai which had a really strange after-taste (kinda like what i imagine manure to taste like). so, maybe stick to the curries.
also, a couple of hours later my stomach felt really gross. i normally have a pretty strong stomach, but perhaps they were using some cheap nasty oils which im not usually digesting. either way, the food did not sit well at all.
however, on a positive note, the thai iced teas are good there (which is the reason it's a two star, and not a one star).
overpriced thai food that's not even up to par. they have this BBQ beef (i forget if it's on a skewer or no) that is so overdone and dry, but the taste itself was good nevertheless. ambiance is great but if you're only eating the food and not the decor, you're better off elsewhere.
Avoid Delivery on Feb 14th. – I waited 2 hours for delivery on Valentines Day for two years in a row. Last year, there was a good reason - it was a wintery mess with sleet and freezing rain and I was happy anyone would deliver. This year, I'm not sure of the reason as the roads were clear as could be. I phoned the restaurant to inquire (after 1 hour 45 mins of no food) and the pleasant voice stated the driver was en route and requested my telephone number so the manager may call me back. The manager was very nice and requested I not provide the driver a tip,as he would pay him. It is by no means the delivery drivers fault for lack of proper staffing by the restaurant and found that to be a cop out for poor management. I can imagine it is the driver that would be screwed in this situation. The food is very tasty, however no food is worth a 2 hour wait anytime. I will not order delivery from House of Siam - unless I order at 3pm for an expected 7pm dinner.
