Great and authentic thai massage – I love a great massage and this is the place to go. They just moved to this facility and it is a beautiful place. I love it when they walk on my back.
Friendly staff, Convenient Hours, Relaxing area – For the value, the massage experience is good. I've went there a few times and generally feed invigorated afterwards, just need to find the right person. The location is somewhat less than desirable but as least they have some parking that's partially enclosed. I love it when they are cracking my bones and stretch my muscles.
Used to like it better – Since the move to the new location it's a bit of a trek for me. And referring to the earlier reviews now it's got the foo-foo spa vibe - didn't need it. And last time I went I also felt bruised, rather than re-born. The particular problem was my back/spine.
The first times I went to the Hollywood Blvd location in Thai town was very cool. I was recommended this place and it worked for me for a while. Now I think i might explore other Thai town places.
Would I say try it? Umm, yes, but with mention that they work more on the muscles and easy on the bones.
Bruised and aching after a massage – I continued to keep going to this massage place for the last year and a half thinking one day I will find someone with gentle hands but after numerous tries I think my last trip is going to be my last. I went for a massage yesterday and there isn't a single muscle in my upper back that isn't bruised or sore today. This is a cheap place and the staff is very friendly but for some reason instead of hands they use their elbows to knead instead of using their fingers and that really hurts. You don't walk away feeling relaxed but more like you have been beaten up. Its cheap so I guess that's a plus but other than that walk in with very low expectations about the massage or else you might be disappointed. The place is very clean and everything else is nice except for the massage.
Just a Massage Please, No Foo-foo Frills – Tucked away in a mini-mall in Thai Town, Pho Siam is the place to go for a no-frills, deep tissue kneading and muscle stretching massage. For about $35, you'll be greeted by the friendly staff, instructed to strip down to a pair of very utilitarian cotton pants and get led to a 'room' (basically a floor mattress surrounded by floor to ceiling cotton curtains). In a matter of minutes, your muscles will be pushed, pummeled, kneaded and stretched by skilled, albeit not always gentle hands. The scent of tiger balm reigns here -- no foofy 'aromatherapy' oils are in their repetroire. But by the time they're done, your kinks will be gone, at half the price of more 'upscale' spots. I've usually been able to walk in anytime, though as word gets around, making an appointment may be a good idea.
