Restaurant review: House of Siam

House of Siam BostonHouse of Siam has been serving Thai food in Boston’s South End since the late 1990s on Columbus Avenue.  In October 2008 this family owned restaurant opened a second smaller location on Tremont Street.

Since Pho Republique closed, the South End has lacked any truly extraordinary Thai restaurant, but the House of Siam goes a long way to satisfying any cravings you may have for this South East Asian cuisine.  The dinner menu for the House of Siam is huge with more than 50 dinner plates to choose from including:  Salads, Soups and Appetizers which range from $4.50 – $15; Noodles and Fried Rice $11-$13; House Specialties $13-$17; Seafood plates start at $15; Curry plates $13-$17 depending on the protein you choose (chicken, beef, shrimp or duck); Vegetarian plates are all $11.

Portions at House of Siam are generous as seen below with the two starters we ordered; Steamed Siam Dumplings with ginger sauce that was addicting for $6.95 and Crab Rangoon for $6.95. House of Siam Boston

The main plates were equally satisfying although the spicy chicken for $12.95 shown below left was not spicy; something you can reconcile by requesting more heat to your server.  Below right is one of the restaurant’s signature plates, Shrimp Pad Thai $12.95. House of Siam Boston

The House of Siam is open 7-days a week and serves beer and wine.  Weekend reservations are not necessary but recommended.
