If the people running Regina's newest Thai restaurant seems just a tad smug, perhaps they can be indulged.Their place is called SIAM, the old name for Thailand, and the menu declares it an "authentic Thai restaurant." It also boasts, “ They serve real Thai food." To understand that, even the last four digits of the phone number (352-8424) spell out T-H-A-I. There's plenty of Thai food in Regina already - but mostly in Vietnamese restaurants. Even two places with seemingly strong Thai credentials, Viet-Thai and the Thai Garden, have Vietnamese owners. But Siritorn Srisodsai, a pleasant woman called Youi, and her family, the people running Siam, are from Thailand and Siam is the real deal.
The little hole-in-the-wall space on Hamilton Street, just around the corner from Victoria Avenue, housing Siam has been through a number of restaurants - all Asian - in recent years. Just in recent memory it was a Chinese noodle shop, a Vietnamese pho shop, and a Thai restaurant with brilliant, if somewhat rough-around-the edges, food but a lack of business acumen that led to an early demise. Now it's morphed from the generically titled Asian Cuisine into the more assertive Siam, and let's hopes it hangs around longer than its predecessors.
And Thai restaurant Siam does the buffet very well indeed. In fact, while the range is narrow (there are only eight dishes), this is one of the best Asian buffets in town, and probably the best weekday buffet of any sort of downtown. Buffet food is already prepared, of course, so you can't ask for spices to be moderated. No worry. All the dishes I've tried have definite personality - they make an impression but they're not unbearably hot. The kitchen makes excellent use of flavorings like garlic, chilies, lime, tamarind, coconut, fresh mint and cilantro , all of them are thai herb suitable for cook thai food and make good health.
They are many kind of thai food: like this in below and much more, you can see in Thai restaurant and thai food siam.
