Been here many times and it never disappoints. True hole-in-the-wall but not in a tacky sort of way. You can eat cheap from a tiny buffet or you can live semi-large on the outstanding Duck Curry or anything in between. Very freshly made dishes and they use fish sauce as God intended Thai food to have. If you dine in... More

Food is super sweet and sticky. Not even close to authentic Thai. We tried the duck curry and the duck tasted like it had been prepared days in advance and threw on a tasteless curry sauce. The accompanying rice was served in a bowl covered with foil and obviously just out of the microwave. The pad Thai was really, really,... More

I really like the place. Staff was amazingly friendly. Food was very good. Atmosphere was basic, family-owned restaurant style. Nothing fancy here, just good food and a good price. I will definitely be back

Visited for the first time today and loved it. Everyone in our party of five got something different and it was all good. Service was excellent as well.

For years just about the only Thai in Nashville. Now there are everywhere, but Siam and its cousin location in West Nashville remain consistiently appealing. Nolensville Road area is the immigrant center of metro Nashville and accordingly no shortage of great small eateries.

I'm not sure where all the 5 star reviews are coming from. This was our first visit, and will probably be our last. The fresh spring rolls and steamed dumplings were good, as was the steamed rice, but lets face it, it's hard to screw these up. The Tom Ka Kai soup was salty and lacked the flavor complexity that...

I have been to Siam Cafe multiple times for lunch over last few months. The restaurant came highly recommended from work associate and he loves to go every time I bring it up. The service staff is funny and very nice. They like to push you with getting food spicy which I like. I always get the green or red... More

We thought the parking was weird and couldn't figure out if the building had housed a cleaners or a convenience store. The family run place has some loyal customers and some tasty offerings. Friendly, affordable and oh so yummy! It was a rainy Sunday and Tom Ka Kai soup was the perfect way to ease into a delicious meal. I... More

I love coming to Siam Cafe not only for the amazing thai food, but for visiting the wonderful staff. Air is the best waitress in Nashville and makes my experience memorable every time.

I manage to go here once every year or so - I simply forget about it! In the early to mid 80's it was located on Thompson Lane close to what is now Performance Studios - formerly HH Gregg - formerly Famous State Sales. When Gregg opened the building was torn down for parking and they moved to their current... More
