We had heard great things about this place but were generally disappointed with our experience. The general atmosphere was okay, but the music was way too loud and I could barely hear my partner across the table. The food took a long time, and when it came it was mediocre at best. I don't mind a little bit of spice, but my dish was far far too spicy (even though the menu labelled it as mild-medium) and nothing to write home about. The vegetables were sparse and the chicken was rubbery and overly plentiful. My partner is a vegetarian and there were very few options for him (most dishes contained at least fish sauce) and his dish when it came seemed like something I could have made at home. It might have been an off night, but I have had better Thai food, so we will eat elsewhere next time we have the craving.

The best Thai food in Ottawa.

I have been coming to Siam Bistro for over 8 years. The food is fantastic - the best I've tasted in Ottawa! Service tonight was not up to usual standards, but this is not typical. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Siam Bistro to friends and family... in fact, I have many times!

Mediocre at best

I've been receiving such rave reviews about this restaurant that I decided to try it out recently. We were seated pretty quickly, but had I not have asked the waitress if a table for two was available we would have waited longer. Once seated it took half an hour for the waiter to take our order. The food arrived separately, about 10 minutes apart. The couple next to us was just being served as we were leaving and they ordered before us. The Pad Khee Mao tasted alright, but was nothing special, and my tablemate would say the same about her food. About 20 minutes after eating, the aftertaste of the food was horrid, and the MSG must have been put on strong because i reacted to it. The decor was bland at best, not much screamed thai except for the waitresses(who were very polite). The restaurant was VERY loud, and crammed. I will not go here again, and would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Simply the best!

I have NEVER had a bad experience at this restaurant. I always enjoy prompt and courteous service and the most delicious Thai food Ottawa has to offer! I especially love their soups.

Lovely Decor, Fast Service

The restaurant has always been a favourite of mine for years and for those of us who frequent it, the wait for the restoration after the fire was agonizing. Since it reopened its doors Siam Bistro has kept up their reputation with good fast ounches at great prices. The only negative thing I will say is that the noodles tend to come out in a gelatinous mass and sit hard in my stomach for a long time, with the exception of the noodles in the curry soup. The small bowl of soup that begins every lunch special is spicy and absolutely wonderful. I could have a meal of that soup alone. The items I have tried on their lunch menu are great. When the restaurant reopened their were a few of my favourite menu items that seemed to have gone missing but they have been replaced with other manu items equally as tantalizing. I will definitely revisit. Lunch service...you can be in and out in less than one half hour.

We go at least once a week and usually have the C,the Pad Thai or G from the lunch menu but sometimes we venture out to the regular menu for curries. Everything we've tried there is phenomenal and authentic. The service is wonderful and it is very reasonably priced. Lunch specials are usually around $10. This place is a must!

Great place to experience authentic Thai cuisine, for the novice, or the more experienced. From the exterior it is very unpretentious, however, inside, the luch colours, and Thai art, make you feel like you are in Thailand.
