Great little local spot, the staff is very friendly, cute atmosphere and the food is delicious!
Love the pad thai, pad se ew, great Curry and dessert is the best!
You have to try the tempura fried ice cream with coconut ice cream, it is the BEST, I now crave it!

My partner, who is Thai and a severe Thai restaurant food critic, liked this restaurant a lot. The location is at a busy junction with adequate parking. Ambiance is OK. We found the service very good on a busy Sunday evening and the food well prepared and full of taste, especially the monsoon shrimp curry with a salty and spicy sauce. We don't live in the immediate area but would return to Star of Siam without hesitation were we to be in the Monterey Bay area again.

Our group (9 people) tried the restaurant for a meeting and dinner. The prices are reasonable. We had appetizers and various entrees. The food was good, but not excellent or as good as another local Thai restaurant. The service was mediocre. While most of our party received their orders, two did not. After ten minutes without receiving their order or any update on their status, we informed another server that we were still waiting for two orders. The server informed our server and then we heard some loud talking in the back -- not sure who it was. Several minutes later the orders arrived without any apology or word. Will definitely not return and will go to the Sawasdee which is the one I would recommend.

Food is so good and fresh. The wait staff is friendly and helpful. This is a neighborhood gem. In crowded Capitola/Soquel, it is nice to park easily and have a great meal.

We had only tried Thai food one other time in another town, and we really didn't care for it, even though it is really popular right now. We gave this place a shot because a local recommended it. It was really good! We had the Spring Rolls as an appetizer, and the Pineapple Fried Rice and Spicy Noodles with Tofu. All three dishes were very good. The people who worked there were very pleasant too.
