Mom's Siam Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Décor is a little dated, but there’s a festiveness from hanging papier mâché flowers and a multitude of Thai statues, and a solid menu all about the land once known as Siam. The kitchen sticks to such tried and true dishes as pad thai, ginger pork and drunken noodles, or fried fish cakes with cucumber relish and sweet-and-sour sauce. Sun-dried beef (deep-fried marinated strips served with a tangy vinegar-based house sauce) dispels visions of Slim Jims and there is a panoply of curries and vegetarian dishes as well. An ideal meal here runs from chicken satay to sate-your-sweet-tooth crispy banana à la mode. Flavors are kept mild, avoiding a real chili bite. Never mind: staff is friendly, and street parking is readily available --- always a plus when you are in a hurry to eat. If you like it spicy, just ask and they’ll be happy to accommodate your heat index. Be sure to ask about the daily specials, too. Mom requires a $15 minimum for credit/debit cards, and there’s free delivery for cash orders over $15 ($2 delivery fee for credit card payment).
