We have eaten here many times in the past. Some of the traditional offerings are consistently good (sushi, coconut soup, sweet and sour pork). Seem like the other dishes are lacking spices and thus flavor. No ginger taste in the ginger fish. Spicy chicken, not spicy, etc. Owner does not seem enthusiastic, but our waitress was very attentive and smiled... More

My recommendation is the all you can eat lunch buffet at below $10. I like the Friday for that because it will offer veggie sushi rolls and dumplings. You will always have two kinds of soup, clear brothy or coconut milk, with carrots, mushrooms, and baby corns. The warmer holds the fragrant basmati. The cold side always has crisp salad... More

We fancied something spicier than the standard fare on Fisherman's Wharf so found that this restaurant was very near the Hotel Pacific. Would thoroughly recommend- we had Tom Kai gain and vegetable spring rolls to start and then chicken noodles, chicken red curry and duck red curry. Absolutely delicious and half the price of our dinner the night before!!

I have tried this Restaurant several times now. The Buffet is ok but nothing to Rant or Rave about. Many Items left empty and never got replaced during my last visit. The Owner also never asks if I wanted a refill on my Drink or if the Food is ok. He just walks around Stoned Faced. Also of any Food... More

Reasonable prices, great service and delicious food. If you like Thai food, stop in here while in Monterey for a light meal. My husband saw a picture of Clint Eastwood at the restaurant at the entrance of the restaurant. I liked the meal, and in fact, it did, make my day. One caution, food items in the pictures in the...

I have been to this Restaurant many times over the years. Although it doesn't offer the best in Thai Food it is ok for the price. The Male Owner who is also the Host is very unfriendly and has a rude Table Manner. When I asked him about specific Thai Food, he told me there is No such a Dish.... More

As vegetarians, it can be challenging to find a decent meal when traveling. The Siamese Bay was more than decent - it was very good! The ambiance, service and decor were very peaceful and pleasing as well. The restaurant is located on a side street away from the more crowded downtown area. I would plan to eat there again on...

Nice food and ambience. We enjoyed a quiet dinner. Took off a star since one of the staff was very rude.

We have enjoyed every dish on the menu. We always start with the coconut soup, which is very good. The pad thai is my wife's favorite only to the Thai restaurant at the Oriental Hotel in Bangkok. The pineapple rice is delicious.. Be sure to finish with the homemade coconut ice cream. We are locals and rate this place by... More

We had the lunch buffet here the other day and weren't impressed at all. We wanted to love it and just couldn't. Nothing we ate, except for one of the soups, really had that great Thai flavor. Much of the food was under seasoned. Bland and boring. I'd advice trying one of the Thai restaurants in a Pacific Grove.
