First day arrived at Bar Harbor and wanted to find food quickly - wandered down street and noticed this interesting Thai restaurant. Loving Thai restaurant we thought we would give it a try. Very low key set up with a few tables with wipe clean coverings and basic cutlery/pots etc. We started with pancake rolls which were okay and followed... More

Siam Orchid is a tasty little Thai restaurant on a small side street. The decor is basic with a Thai accent and the food selection is limited, but perfectly adequate. As they say, always better to do a few things well, etc.... The menu offered a decent choice of dishes and everything is prepared fresh and as spicy (be careful... More

I was taken back by how amazing the Vicki Roll was at Siam Orchid in Downtown Bar Harbor. Nestled in a forgotten side street to a quaint new england town was a hidden diamond. To be honest a diamond doesn't do this place justice. I truly believed i dinned at a perfect eatery. Lemon segments in the ice water? C'est... More

We ordered take out from here, and I was not thrilled with the food. It was okay if you've never had good Thai food, but I found the amount of noodles excessively high, the amount of sauce excessively low and the chicken barely there in my Pud Thai. I didn't even want to save the leftovers, and I'm a huge... More

My husband and I love Thai food but this place is the worst. We ordered a hot and spicy chicken dish with Tamarind sauce and it was drenched in sweet and sour sauce and not hot at all. We asked for some Thai hot sauce and we were given store bought chile sauce. The vegetables were tasteless. The waitress could... More

Hey, Never thought we could fine good thai food in Bar Harbor Maine. From NYC - Plenty of choices. Have to say we were surprised by the taste and freshness of the ingredients in our dinners at SIAM Orchid. Out of the way not on the main drag. A great alternative to another lobster roll. Bonus - owner and staff... More

We very much enjoyed our meal at Siam Orchid, an unassuming little restaurant serving excellent Thai food. Given the craziness of downtown Bar Harbor, the quiet location was very relaxing, and a big bonus. We split an order of crab rangoon (excellent and very beautifully presented), and my wife and I each had a ginger curry dish, she with chicken,... More

Sought this place out based on Trip Advisor reviews. Casual, quiet, tucked away place. Dumbling soup and Tom Young soup were both excellent. Fresh spring roll was good. Sushi--tuna, salmon were fresh, spicy scallop was good, but in no way spicy. Sake was a good accompaniment.
