Siam Spicy Restaurant Review

: This longstanding restaurant was serving the stir-fry and noodle dishes of Thailand when few others were. Although more and more spots have joined the line-up, this remains one of the favorites thanks to reliable spice levels and a charming, though tiny, setting on busy Woodward Avenue. Two of the most popular dishes are the cashew chicken and Thai, but there are a number of red and green curries as well as other noodle options, too. For dessert, order coconut ice cream to cool the flames. A note to the wise: always order downward in terms of spiciness. That is to say, if you are a "hot" kind of person, go medium instead.
