Siam Pagoda has been a regular with us, for both dine in and take away, over the past 5 years.

We enjoyed another good meal here last night with a small group of 6. Thursday night in Brisbane has been the bain of many a restauranteur, however, Siam Pagoda enjoyed good numbers of dine in patrons and a steady flow of take away customers.

This restaurant has a lot of repeat customers and that is a good reflection of the consistant food and friendly staff.

Last night we had five different dishes and each was enjoyed. The food here is not necessarily the best and most authentic Thai available. It is, however, of a good consistent quality that keeps people coming back. I do have a few comments about the quality and presentation of some ingredients, particularly the seafood. Basa being used in the Tamarind Fish dish is disappointing as the texture of this fish is not particularly enjoyable. Similarly the omni-present Vannamaii prawns, with tail on ever in soup dishes, are poor.

The service staff are friendly and attentive and overall this is a good suburban restaurant.

My wife and I lunched at Siam Pagoda on Thursday 4th January 2018.

Our entrée comprised:

Curry Puffs (vegetarian) – 4 pieces with a sweet & sour dip. The potato filling was steaming hot, but on the whole it was a nice appetiser.

Tom Yum Chicken Soup and Tom Kha Chicken Soup - each quite distinctive in flavour. The Tom Yum was unusually sourish, while the Tom Kha with coconut milk was a bit more sweetish and very palatable. The floating chilli oil gave the soups a zing.

Our mains comprised:

Pad Prew Wann (Sweet & Sour) Beef – tender beef slices with broccoli, cauliflower, carrot, capsicum, onion, spring onion, zucchini, beans, pineapple and lychee.

Tamarind Fish (basa) – 3 battered and fried fillets doused with special Thai-style tamarind sauce and garnished with julienned radish, spring onions and fried onions.

Both the main dishes were well presented, and the Tamarind Fish was especially tasty. These dishes were served with steamed jasmine rice in an ornate Thai utensil.

Our drinks were coconut water - with slices of tender coconut kernel. These were served in a glass with a drinking straw – it would have been better if a long-handled spoon was provided to scoop up the coconut slices.

The chef/owner and his wife were pleasant and friendly. We were served by the chef himself. Overall, it was quite an enjoyable lunch indeed.

This little Thai restaurant is tucked away in suburbia but has a lovely atmosphere with either a fairy lit garden to dine in or indoors with aircon. Great food, fast friendly service. My personal favourite dish is the Red Island duck curry, delicious.

I have been here quite a few times, food is consistently good, staff always friendly. The meals always nicely garnished. I love the steamed fish, it is tasty and so soft. Service is very good too. There was a guitarist playing background music as well, which adds to the really lovely outdoor setting .
