The night started with attentive staff but I was confused with why the menu was at least half of what the take away menu/pamphlet had to offer but we ordered from the take away menu anyways. After we ordered our entrees and mains. We agreed to order dessert after because we maybe too full. As the entree was served I... More

Decided to try this restaurant again after a few years, now recall why we werent in a rush to return. The restaurant itself has a nice ambience but bench seating on either side if the room means tables are placed quite close, so you feel like you are dining with the couple or group next to you. It is BYO... More

Went here for dinner 2 nights ago, only half the menu was available to order. Food was bland, had no flavour and was just not nice. Won't be going here again 😑

We ate at Som Thai tonight for my Birthday. I was disappointed with the size of the starter but the main meal was sensational. The flavors were just what we were looking for. The desert was also beautiful. I'm glad we chose to eat there.

I'd frequented this place several times. It appears that the menu had changed and shrunk during this latest visit. The salmon in a sweet and sour thai style source is new on the list for me. Tasted good. The twice cooked crispy pork belly with wok-fried gai lan in garlic and soy, one of my favourite here, still remains. Overall,... More

As locals, we've been here a few times and went on a Tuesday night for a quick bite. I think this was the best meal we've had here...fresh, hot, flavorsome...it was fantastic and service was great as always!

We stopped by here rather late on a Saturday night so no problem getting a table. Menu has a good selection to choose from & you can go as spicy as you like. Service is always good at Som with the staff being attentive but not hovering around you. Prices are quite reasonable given the standard that Som is offering.

We were here before a few years ago. This time dinner on a Saturday evening. Starters were spring rolls and 'dancing' (soft shell) crab. Outstanding. Mains were tofu red curry, pad prik mixed seafood stirfry, and chilli fish. Now we eat a lot of Thai but this was all decidedly different. Yes some of the sauces were sweetish but the... More
