@Siam (Soho, London) - Restaurant Review

48 Frith Street 
London W1D 4SF
0207 494 4511

Summary: The food was delicious and reasonably priced, but we choose carefully. The atmosphere was contemporary Thai cuisine with a very thoughtful staff.

The Atmosphere: The restaurant itself is very contemporary and even minimalistic with splashings of Thai decor. It is small and cozy but still maintains a sense of vastness so you do not feel like you are sat in top of each other. However, if you listen intently you will surely get in on the conversation of the table next to you.

The Food: It was all very delicious. I ordered the deep fried marinated pork strip with chili sauce & tiger prawns with Thai pesto sauce. Both were incredible.

The Service: The staff were very polite, thoughtful and quick.  The service however lacked a bit of refinement. Our starters arrived and were very good but our main courses did not arrive together which was a bit awkward so we ended up sharing both main courses and treating it like a three course meal. We were very laid back about it, but I can see how it would be awkward for someone on a first date. Regardless, we had one waiter and one server and they were both very charming, everyone in the restaurant seemed to be having a good time and we enjoyed the food. It was a great vibe.

Would I go back? Absolutely.
