It’s a borderline 5 stars. The food was great from noodles to curry though I will say I thought the raves I (and you likely) read on the banana curry were overrated. I’d skip it. The glass noodles dish (pad Woon sen) was great. The Tom Kha soup was okay; I’ve had better and worse. The veggie spring rolls were more sushi-roll-sized slices of spring rolls versus whole rolls. That turned out to be a great approach as we could readily share the appetizer. In addition to the usual Singha Thai beer (and Sapporo) they had a local microbrew on tap (I think it was Telluride Tempter IPA) which was a nice surprise. The ambiance is cozy though a bit loud. The background music seemed a strange mix of classic rock ballads. They definitely weren’t going for the “sounds like you’re in Asia” theme music. Overall it was a bit loud (we were dining on a Wed evening around 7pm.)
The food takes a bit of time to come out. The wait staff mentioned they have small kitchen and ‘not too many woks.’ No worries if you aren’t in a rush (we weren’t.) Just be patient and enjoy your company.
The worst part? The place is very popular and always packed. They don’t take reservations, but if you call they’ll put your name on a list and give you a time window. Wait, isn’t that sort of like a reservation? Don’t get me started... Our first attempt at dining at Siam ended quickly when we approached the host stand to put our name in. “Sorry, if you didn’t call and already have your name on ‘the list’ we won’t accept you anymore today.” Seems like an odd approach. We left that evening, called the next afternoon, and dined the next evening. I guess we learned their system.
