Tulsa >Thai-Siam Restaurant
Can't believe anyone still eats here!. After years of considering Thai Siam a decent second choice to Lanna Thai (esp. after Lanna closed its 51st St location) we picked up dinner from there tonight. It was , in a word, horrible. The Tom Yum Gai may well as have been canned chicken noodle -- no sign of lemongrass, kaffir lime leaf, or spice that would have identified it as thai food. The Tom Kha was worse -- the same lack of flavor exacerbated by a ton of coconut milk. The kids liked the broccoli pad - probably because it was entirely devoid of flavor. Not only will we never be going there again, I nearly called to get our money back for tonight's debacle.
Not The Best. I went with a group of friends the other day and just was not impressed...It was at least 80 degrees and even though we went at lunch and it was busy there was one server.... ice water came to the table with no ice? Spring rolls with shrimp were horrible and had obviously gone bad... Waitress was nice... pad thai edible.... but just not a good experience.. hopefully it was just an off day... but it was way off.
Best Thai Food in Tulsa. Awesome food, great people. Obviously some other users have this Thai place confused with Thai Siam. Thai Siam has the best Thai food in the MidWest. I know that is not saying a lot, but I highly recommend this restaurant. The service is always great. The owner and his wife are super friendly and willing to make special dishes to order. The dirty rice and Kao Phad is awesome. Try the green sauce on the spring rolls, phenonimal.
Distasteful and Overpriced.
Having tasted the Thai food in California we weren't expecting the food at this restaurant to be as good, however, the food here was much worse than we had expected. When seated we were given a soup dish that only had sparse shreds of cabbage (I counted 2 very small pieces in my bowl, one the size of my thumbnail and the other about half that size) and pepper. It tasted like peppered water. We ended up ordering the "Golden Wonton", a "deep fried wonton" as mentioned on the menu, for the appetizer which turned out to be nothing more than deep fried wonton skins. We also ordered their Pad See-Ew and Pad Thai dish. The Pad See-Ew noodles were soggy, overly smothered in cilantro and pepper with the sauce (which by the way did not taste like traditional Pad See-Ew sauce) not thoroughly mixed in with the noodles with parts of the noodles appearing completely white. The only redeemable parts of the dish was the broccoli and the chicken.
The Pad Thai dish was just as bad if not worse. The noodles were stark white instead of having the tan color they were supposed to and tasted just as bland. The dish also had very little vegetable aside from lots of onion.
Service was average, nothing notable except that the waitress appeared desperate for customers as the place was empty with the exception of us on a Friday night.
Prices for each dish was double from what you'd find in California and completely not worth it. If I could I would give this place 0 stars. I would not recommend this place to anyone who truly knows what Thai food tastes like or would like to experience Thai food for the first time. In fact, I would not recommend it to anyone looking to eat Thai food in general.
The worst Thai food & service ever!!!. The two worst experiences I have had in a restaurant in recent years have been at Thai-Siam restaurant in Tulsa. We went once years ago & liked it. When we returned later we had one of the rudest experiences ever with the waiter, who was inexplicably rude. It was sad since it was my friend's birthday therefore a special occasion. When we returned a year later, we had unbelievably an even worse experience. The food was awful--my friend's dish was bland & tasteless & tasted freezer-burnt. My curry was runny & the vegetables were rubbery & undercooked. I never complain in restaurants, but when we brought it up with our female server she was incredibly rude & refused to try to correct the problem. Honestly don't know why/how this place stays in business. Thai food is my favorite & this place manages to be terrible & have by far the worst service I have ever experienced. Two BIG thumbs down!!!!!
Best Thai Food. This hole in the wall is one of our favorite restaurants. The service is always fast and very friendly. I can't get off the chicken fried rice and the spring rolls - they are addicting. During the summer, they carry a mango-rice dessert (don't know the name), get it; it's good.
Great Fresh Ingredients. I was pleasantly surprised to find such an affordable, friendly place in this strip mall setting. Pad se-ew was some of the best I've had but the appetizers were all fried and the chicken satay was just average. Overall though, a great deal.
Best Word of Mouth. Thai Siam is GREAT...it is one of those resturants that you only know about by word of mouth. The ingredients are always fresh, no preservatives, and I've never had a bad dish. It is a very simple resturant, out of the way, that is big on quality, good service and friendly staff and patrons.
Best Panang Gai in Tulsa. Like most of the best places to Dine in this world, Thai Siam is tucked away from the buzz of fast society. HOWEVER, it is by far the best Thai Food we have in the Midwest if not the US. We live in Kansas City, KS, but every time we fly into Tulsa we have to visit Thai Siam to get a plate of their delicious Panang Gai. Great ambiance!
