THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Siam Place Restaurant Review

: Lost among car washes, garages and tacos stands on ever-busy Lincoln Boulevard, Siam Place stands as a modest and unassuming restaurant. What could be more appropriate for a nice Thai family than to prepare for their Santa Monica neighbors what they know best: Thai home-style cooking? And this is exactly what diners get, without any chi chi, nor valet parking. No frills either in the décor, though one feels quite relaxed here despite the razzle-dazzle of the street unraveling beyond lace drapes. Apart from the usual Thai dishes, comprising rolls, traditional soups in spicy and hot-and-sour coconut milk broth, seafood salads, and noodles such as pad thai (fried Thai rice noodles with meat, bean sprout, onion and egg), Siam Place presents its specialties such as the Bangkok Kra Pao (stuffed Thai omelets with spicy basil and chicken), steamed fish or the Kra Prao Ta Lay (seafood sautéed with chopped chili, bell pepper and basil). If it sounds too hot, just ask for less spice. All of this is satisfying and generously served without any M.S.G, nor pain to the pocketbook. There is even a choice of fifteen lunch specials offered for just $5.25.
