Siam is a well organized restaurant on two floors, run by an Austrian who lives in Thailand part of the year. He ensures smooth and efficient operation, even when serving at full capacity. The Thai kitchen staff create authentic dishes that are, in many cases, far superior to what you'd typically get in a restaurant in Thailand. With Thai cuisine, all five tastes have to be concurrently present, but they must be subtly blended for classic dishes such as Pat Thai, and completely in your face for dishes such as Tom Yam. Siam's chefs master these details perfectly.

Siam's Pat Thai is cooked at very high temperature to "toast" the rice noodles just right, while leaving the greens crunchy and dynamic, and it is served with fresh garnishing and crushed peanuts on the side and bursting with the perfectly blended flavors of tamarind sauce and garlic. The green curries are bursting with piquant aromas and stabilized with just the right amount of coconut cream. The satay is really interesting and comes with some good sauces, although I miss the crushed fresh pineapple. The Chicken Cashew Nut wok is excellent.

The chefs have no problems catering to individual requests and a little customizing.

Service is fast! Lunch prices are good value.

My only complaints:
The upstairs toilet could afford to be renovated and cleaner.
The coffee is good, but could be better.
They could afford to be a little more generous adventurous with fresh herbs -- to give diners a foodie moment.

We went to Siam on a wet autumn evening, and were rewarded with a great homestyle Thai meal.

Service was hassled, as they were short of staff - only 1 person serving the whole restaurant - but he did a very good job.

Tom Yam Tale was authentic, Yum Woosen was sour and spicy enough (possibly a challenge for those not used to spicy food, but probably short of expectation for a true Thai).

All main courses (except soup and woonsen) were served with rice.

Altogether a warming and satisfying meal.

We found it by chance, we gave it a try, and we got convinced. Tasty thai food in the heart of the 'old town' in Stockholm. Very fair prices, friendly service and very fast delivery. I guess we did not need to wait more than 10 minutes for our meal.

Note: I am not sure, but this seems to be a bar on street level and a restaurant in the underground. We ate in the bar. I don't know if there is a difference in the offering.

We were on a day trip to Stockholm as part of our Baltic cruise and whilst walking around Gamla Stan, we dropped into Siam for lunch. This was our 2nd visit to Stockholm and also a repeat visit to this lovely restaurant.

The service is friendly and the food is really well presented and very tasty. We mentioned to the owner that we'd visited 4 years ago when we had finished our lunch and he kindly gave us all a very delicious coconut ice cream as "repeat guests" ☺️

The place is Ok and enjoyable on the level of a local restaurang. Make sure you do not get stuck upstairs having bar menu only. Take a stairway down and quality of the visit will be substantially ímproved.
