Authentic Thai, Yummy



Siam provided us with a 10 course meal starting with appetizers. then to main dish. I will go dish by dish: APPETIZERS Spring Roll and Fish Cake: The spring roll was quite okay, it was well cooked, crunchy and maintained the aroma of the vegetable items inside. The fish is a must order if you want to order appetizers, slightly spicy, just as i like it. it went really well with the green chilly sauce. the serving size was family so you can have it in your hearts content. MAIN COURSES Mixed Fried Rice and Steamed Rice: the steamed rice had a nice aroma. not like your typical boiled rice you get from other restaurents. It goes well with the gravies.The Mixed fried rice was a real treat, it was slightly spicy which was good. For the purpose of tasting i had the Fried rice mixed with beef basil and whole fish with tamarind sauce. Beef Basil had juicy beef slices. it was juicy enough and melted well inside my mouth. it was a good compliment with the mixed fried rice. Whole fish with tamarind sauce was the main highlight of the evening. it was quite well marinated according to me and tasted just about right. The fish is a snapped fish (if i am not wrong). by the time the fish was on the table, i was quite full with beef basil which was my favourite. but i had to make some space in my stomach for the fish. it was a whole fish and was plenty for a family size of 7 people. The eating experience was not over and they brought Pad Thai. Being at the end of the digestive capacty, I tried a mouthful of the Pad Thai. My expert friends on Thai food were really happy with its authentic taste. It was well cooked and was a balanced item for me. Service size was quite generous too. INTERIOR The restaurent has just opened and have classy decoration. Here and there are photographs from around the world depicting classical architecture or masonary work. The most unique thing about the restaurent is its location. Located between Gulshan 1 and 2 circles, i believe it is the only place to go if you are looking for aunthentic Thai cuisine.

Siam



Atmosphere wise, it is great! great as in there's a lot of space, and I love that. Its not one of those places where a huge number of people are cramped up in a small room. Also, the decorations are really cool. Simple, yet inviting. Would go back!

Ambiance is great and comforting. Decorated with elegance and poise and yet reflects simplicity which goes well with the scrumptious food that is being served.

Thai foodventure @Siam!



It was a total foodies day for me, with a couple of like minded mates. We went to Siam, a new Thai place, situated conveniently between Gulshan 1 and 2. Let me start with the appetizers. The Spring rolls were very fresh and just crispy enough. However the green chili sauce was very hot, and to me it had a strong ginger flavor. The Sea food salad had a good mixture of the flavors, not at all smelly. Crab was perfectly tender. A bit of added lemon juice could make it even better. But the star appetizer was the fish cake, so yummy! The main courses were pretty good overall. Mixed Fried rice is close to the authentic taste and the Chicken cashew nut curry is one of the best chicken i have tasted in a while. the smokiness gave an entirely different dimension to the dish. Then we had beef basil, the beef was pretty tender but i found the basil a bit chewy. The Garlic Prawn was perfectly cooked, could be a bit hotter to go entirely with my tastebud. Pad thai was ok, but honestly i was so full by the time that i couldn't really do justice to the dish. The final dish in the main course was the Whole red snapper with tamarind sauce. it simply looked amazing. the fish was done okay, but may be a bit overcooked that made the outside dry and the sauce didn't get inside to make it juicy. The fish tasted alright though. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and i would really look forward to what this place has to offer more in the coming days.

PRAWN WITH GARLIC PEPPER (Tk. 535.00)

Prawns!

If you love prawns (who doesn't?), you have to try this! I don't know what to say except that every bite made me want more. Prawns and garlic are a match made in heaven and Siam brought out the best in these 2 ingredients.

BEEF WITH BASIL LEAF (Tk. 570.00)

Basil!

Most restaurants in Dhaka make this dish too sweet which is not what Thai cuisine is about. At Siam, they have kept true to the Thai culture by making this dish tingle your taste buds with just the right amount of chili to give you a kick-start for the meal. If you love beef, you gotta try this

Generally I dont quile drool over fish cakes, any appetizers for that matter, but these were awesome! Fresh, soft, juicy, and perfectly seasoned with all the right flavors. The serving is quite generous (8 pcs if have the right count), so a great appetizer to start with!
