Excellent food. Restaurant was completely empty at 12:45 on a Monday, okay Mondays aren't that busy. Waitress took at least 15 minutes to come to the table. Really? There was literally no one else there. It was also quite cold inside, they were probably conserving...More

Thai Siam used to be down the street, then moved over to become part of the Zen Asian Bistro. We expected the same level of deliciousness, but we were wrong. The food was bland. The waitstaff didn't listen to me, but was happy to listen...More
